  • Step 1: When you first receive your safe, it comes with a protective shield on the lock. You’ll need to remove this shield before continuing.
  • Step 2: Place your key in the lock, and turn it clockwise to unlock.

To open the safe, after hearing the unlocking mechanism’s sound, turn the doorknob in a clockwise direction and pull the handle to open it.

How to Install Batteries

To begin using the safe, you should install the batteries. Once you unlock it and hold the door open, look for a battery compartment by opening the door and running your fingers along with the back panel inside. This is important to start your electric Amazon gun safe mechanism.

If you order the Amazon basic gun safe, the batteries are not provided. So, you need to purchase the correct size and type of battery for your gun safe before installing them into the battery compartment, as noted in the installation instructions.

Setting Your Code

After completing all the installation work now, it’s time to set up the safe code. Setting up the code is simple with these easy steps:

  • Resetting the keypad requires opening the door to access a button inside, so be sure that it is already opened before pressing this internal reset button.
  • After the button has been pressed, enter the new code. Amazon safes can be opened with a code that ranges from 3 to 8 digits.
  • After entering the new code, press “Enter” and then “#” once more to confirm your new password.
  • The changing light on the digital pad will indicate whether your new code was accepted. If you see a warning sign, go back and try again from the beginning.

Opening The Amazon Safe Without Key

If you’ve lost your Amazon safe key and cannot input the code, here’s a way to reset it yourself. To open the safe or lose your safe key, you don’t need to waste money and time on a locksmith. Here are simple tips for opening an Amazon Safe without the original key.

Master Code Setup

One of the many features Amazon has for their small safe is a master code. This feature allows you to enter any four-digit number, and it will work as if you are entering your own access code.

To open your Amazon Safe without a key, type in (0) twice, followed by the reset button. You will hear a single beep, and then you can begin using the master code to unlock the safe.

Press the reset button and enter a new numerical code consisting of three to eight digits. Press the pound-or (hash)-key to confirm your new password. This will validate that your new master code is activated.
