    Safe is opened and functional, what a feleif! New lock installed and all is well in East Tn. again. kfbagt and my somewhat uneducated assumption were right on target, stuck lucky #7 seven button had it locked up. Thanks to all and keep those batteries fresh and hot. Have a great weekend and go bust some targets!

    Google Translator didn't work for me on this one!

    Maybe BabelFish?

    fat fingered that for sure. Don't really know how a "feleif" feels like or what it is, but it ain't too bad! Thanks for the support.

    Am I the only one that has a electronic lock with an override key to get you into the safe if the keypad malfunctions?

    One of mine has a key if the battery goes dead. However I don't think the key will work unless the battery is dead.(I think) I have never tried it. Jackie B.

    this is hard to explain. he peeled the keyboard display back and removed a small metal spring type disk from #7, put my code in and the safe opened. he then installed a new lock and i was able to set up a new code. very efficient and very much a pro.

    My expensive safe has just the electronic keypad. I had a dead battery once, changed it and everything worked. My cheaper safe not only has an over-ride key but it also has an external battery hook up incase the main battery fails. Double redundancy.

    Not much of a safe if a key will open it. My S&G electronic lock has no key. The mechanical locks have a key but that is only a temporary lock when away from the safe for a few minutes.

    thats what I thought to. I tried to have a spare made just in case, none of the locksmiths around here could make one. They are a pretty unique key. Still not sure if I like the idea or not.
