Many Codes to choose from ... CodeLock Combinations
The PushButton code chamber consists of 13 buttons from which the code is selected, and a 'C' button which is used to re-set the chamber after an incorrect entry, and which must always be used as the first digit of a code. Buttons may only be used ONCE in a code. For example, 1212 is not possible. A PushButton code, or combination, can be entered in any order or sequence; e.g 1234 can be 4321 or 1342 or whatever sequence is most convenient to remember.
With 13 buttons, a total of 8,191 different codes are available, any of which can be entered in any sequence.The total is arrived at as follows:
Most people will set a code in the range of 4 to 7 digits, and the total number of codes in this range is 5434. The lock is factory set with a randomly selected 6 digit code starting with the C button. The code is not recorded by the factory. The code can be changed as often as required to any other 6 digit code. Every new code must start with the C button. Using the spare tumblers, one red and one blue, the code length can be changed to 5 or 7 digits. Shorter codes are not recommended.
- Take your PushButton combination door lock off the door by unscrewing the 2 screws in the backplate.
Code Change Instructions
- Press the C button to reset the chamber and place the lock case on a flat surface with the buttons down.
- Remove the 2 red screws and carefully lift off the code chamber plate. Check that all 14 springs are held in place on the plate.
- Note that the 5 red tipped code tumblers correspond in position to the existing code. The 8 blue tipped non-code tumblers fill the other positions. The C tumbler is not coloured.
- Hold the lock in your hand and depress the C button. Keeping the C button depressed use tweezers to re-position the tumblers to correspond with your new code. DO NOT force the tumblers in.
NB: Holding the C button depressed whilst re-positioning the tumblers is ESSENTIAL to avoid damaging the internal mechanism. DO NOT attempt to reposition the C tumbler. The square notches of all the tumblers MUST face outwards with the coloured tips ON TOP.
- Replace the code chamber plate carefully with the 2 red screws.
- Check the operation of the new code, and make a written note of it before re-installing the lock.
- On the spring latch models 250 and 255, the spindle must engage the latch
