    It's not hard to do, make sure you know what you are doing. Study how the relocker works and don't set it to trip too easily.

    I've been using an S&G electronic combo for over 3 yrs now, I still haven't replaced the two 9v batteries. Mine gets used everday, sometimes multiple times.

    If the dial is a S&G dial, the electronic combo is a direct replacement.

    One thing as regards to maintainence...if you do not change the code occassionally, be sure to at least, every few months, take some mild cleaner, and give it a good wiping off. Here in the shop, my dirty hands tend to leave a tell-tale trace each time I hit the buttons. Though there are six digits used out of the nine, someone might get lucky on hitting the right sequence, with those six.

    Another nice feature is, if the wrong combination is used three time in a row, the lock with freze up for 15 minutes, preventing any further attempts.

    You can find these electronic combos at McMaster-Carr. They are right around $200...maybe a smidgen more. AND, you can do it yourself.
