The best thing about electronic locks is they are so easy to work with, and changing the battery is part of that. The instructions below are for the most common types of electronic locks that T&T Liberty Safes has sold over the years. We can't list every electronic lock we've ever sold, but we can give you the instructions of the most common ones. Each lock is easily labled below, so just find the instructions that apply to your safe lock.

 

Each lock has its own heading, so feel free to skip down to the lock that's relevant to you.

The circle or ring around the lock is plastic and removable.

• There is a plastic ring around the lock face. Turn the ring left, no more than 1/2" - 1" until the ring stops turning.

• Pull the ring towards you until it comes off of the lock face.

• The battery is located at the bottom of the lock face, behind where you see the "Liberty Safe / Securam" label. It's in sideways and you can see the wires of the connector on the right side.

• Using a finger or something small, push the battery from the left to the right until you can get a good hold of the battery, then pull the battery out.

• Change the old battery for the new one.

• With the bottom of the battery facing left, slide the battery back into place. Make sure the wires of the battery connector are tucked in so they don't get pinched when you replace the ring during the next step.

• Place the ring back over the lock face and push it in until it sits flush, then turn it right 1/2" - 1" until it stops. The ring should now be securely reattached to the lock face.

 

 

SecuRam's Backlit, L01 Prologic & Scanlogic Basic all have this battery tray with locking lever.

 

We're putting these three locks together because changing the battery is identical in each of them. Looking at the bottom of the lock, there is a battery tray with a locking lever on the right.

 

• Pull the locking lever to the left (towards the center of the lock) to unlock it.

• Slide the battery tray down and out of the lock body.

• Replace the old battery with a new one. Note that the openings for the battery posts are not the same size, so the battery will only fit properly one way.

• Push the battery tray back into the lock body and, while holding it firmly in place, push the locking lever to the right until it locks the battery tray in place.

This is a very easy lock to change.

 

• Pull the lock face directly towards you to detach it from the lock body.

• Change the battery located on the back of the lock face.

• Reattach the lock face to the lock body.

 

 

Identified by its slightly angled design, with the bottom of the face protruding out slightly more then the top of the face.

 

You can find the battery tray for this type of lock at the bottom center. Looking at or feeling the bottom of the lock, you will notice a ridge on the bottom of the battery tray.

 

• Using a hooking motion with your finger, pull the ridge of the battery tray towards you until the tray "pops" out of place.

• Using your fingers, take hold of both sides of the tray and pull it down and out of the lock body.

• Replace the old battery with a new one. Note the on recent models, the openings for the battery posts are not the same sizes and the battery will only fit properly one way.

• Push the battery tray back up into the lock body until it "pops" securely in place.

 

 

Identified by the black ridged ring around the lock, with a black tab that sits at the 12 o'clock position when closed, and at the 2 o'clock position when opened.

 

Even though this lock is easy to change, there are a few things you'll want to make sure you have in the right place as you do the job. We'll mention those below.

• There is a black tab on the black right around the lock. Make sure you start with the tab at the 12 o'clock position.

• Using your finger, pull the tab out towards you just enough to allow you to turn the ring left. The ring will stop after turning it approximately 1/4 inch. Note: Do not use an excessive amount of force when pulling the tab out. A lot of force could cause the tab to break off.

• Pull the ring out from around the lock body until it stops. To see how far the ring extends out before it stops, see the picture showing the battery compartment.

• You can see the battery compartment and the wires of the battery connector from the top. Pull the battery out of the compartment.

• Replace the old battery with a new one.

• Slide the new battery into the battery compartment with the bottom facing down.

• Push the ring back flush with the lock body. You will notice the black tab is extending out a bit because it is resting on a metal prong behind it. Note: Be sure the wires of the battery connectors are tucked in so the ring doen't catch and pinch them.

• Turn the ring to the right until the black tab clicks back into place at the 12 o'clock position. Note: If done right, the back metal piece of the plastic tab should be sitting between two small metal prongs.

The ESL5 / ESL10 are easy to change. Just be mindful of where the wires on the inside are.

 

• Twist the lock face to the left until it stops, then pull the lock face off the lock body.

The battery is located behind the lock face, in a battery cradle. Replace the old battery with a new one.

• Place the lock face flush with the lock body, then turn the lock face to the right until it locks into place. Note: Be sure all the wires behind the lock face are tucked into the empty spaces to avoice pinching them.

 


Changing the battery in most electronic locks is relatively easy, but if you do have questions about any of these locks, you can contact the dealer that sold you the safe and they'll be happy to help.
