SentrySafe Security Safe Owner’s Manual (P56118)

Smart Doorlocks

Bolt-down instructions

To help provide maximum security, bolt down is strongly recommended.

1. Select a suitable and convenient location for your safe. Set the safe in place and use the holes provided in the bottom or back of the safe to mark the location of the holes to be drilled in the floor or wall. It is not recommended to attempt to bolt to both floor and wall. If bolting to a wall, please ensure that the safe is resting on a supporting surface, i.e. floor, table or shelf.

2. Move the safe away and drill holes of the appropriate diameter and depth for the type of hardware being used and the mounting surface (2 each – bolts, washers and masonry anchors).

3. Place the safe back over the holes and install the fasteners as required.

For safes with key lock only

Your SentrySafe product is equipped with a high security, 8 lever key lock; two (2) keys are provided. 

For safes with electronic lock 


Battery Installation

To power the lock, four alkaline AA batteries (not included) are required. NOTE: Do not use rechargeable batteries or any other type of non-alkaline battery. Do not mix old and new batteries. Do not mix alkaline and standard batteries. 

To install batteries, remove cover between knob and keypad. (Fig. A) Unlock door with the override key provided in the plastic bag attached to the owner’s manual, and open the door using the knob. Remove battery cover located on the inside back of the door by sliding to the right. (Fig. B) Insert the four batteries as indicated. Replace the battery cover. 

Operating instructions

Your safe code is: 1, 7, 5, 0, 0

To open:

Enter the code (when a key is pressed, there will be a beep and the LED will flash yellow) followed by pressing the “#” key. Green LED will remain on for 5 seconds. Within 5 seconds, turn the knob clockwise to open the safe door.

IMPORTANT: All safe models initially work with the safe code 1, 7,5 Q Q. It is therefore important to re-program your safe with a new user code you have personally selected, to provide maximum security. Please see instructions that follow. 

To program your new user code:

Open the door, remove the battery cover and press the key button inside the battery compartment on the door back. Yellow LED will go on. Enter your new code (2-8 digits) followed by the “#” key. Yellow LED will go off to indicate the new code has been accepted and stored.

If the new programming attempt fails, the yellow LED will flash with five beeps. You must attempt your new code again.

NOTE: Once your code is changed, keep it in a secure place. Your original safe code cannot be used again to open the safe.

To open in emergency:

Remove the cover between knob and keypad, then use the override key and turn it clockwise. While holding key in turned position, turn the knob clockwise to open the door. 

Replacement Keys

To order replacement keys and/or combinations, we must have the correct model and serial number of your safe. Find your safe’s Serial Number on the small label located on the outside of your safe and on the original owner’s manual. Once you locate this information, please visit or call customer service at 1-800-828-1438. 

To change the batteries:

The red light will go on when a key is pressed. This indicates the batteries are low. Open the safe door and replace with new batteries.
