Battery Installation

To get started, insert one of your backup keys into the keyhole at the front of the safe (see Figure A). Push key in and rotate the key 90 degrees clockwise to open the safe.

Remove the interior padding. Locate the battery compartment door on the inside of the safe directly behind the ‘4’ key on the keypad (see Figure B).

Remove the battery cover by pressing down on the tab near the top of the cover.Insert the 18650 rechargeable lithium-ion battery (included in accessory box) into the battery compartment.

Note that your Vaultek™ safe automatically detects the polarity of the battery and can be installed in either direction.

When the battery is inserted you will hear a short welcome tone and the keypad will light up.Once you hear the tone and see the keypad light up, replace the battery cover.

You are now ready to program your safe.

Can I keep my safe plugged in?

Leaving your safe plugged in continually will not harm the safe or battery.

However, to preserve battery life we suggest that you unplug occasionally to allow the battery to cycle down.

Charging Safe

1) To recharge the safe, plug the micro-USB into the micro-USB receiving jack located on the right side of the safe and connect to a standard USB port or wall outlet using the AC power adapter. Approximate recharge time is 2.5 hours.

2) The LED next to the receiving jack on the side of the safe will glow RED indicating charging and GREEN indicating charged.

After installing the battery, use the charging kit provided to charge the unit 100%.

Master Code

1) Open the safe. (The default master code is 1-2-3-4 on the keypad)

2) With the safe open, lift the protective “PROGRAM” cover. Press and hold the ‘1’ key then the “PROGRAM” button together (3 seconds) until all status bar LEDs turn RED and let go.

3) Enter your NEW master code.

4) IMMEDIATELY Press and hold the ‘1’ key then the “PROGRAM” button together a second time (3 seconds) until all status bar LEDs turn RED and let go.

5) Enter your NEW master code a second time.

6) IMMEDIATELY Press and hold the ‘1’ key then the “PROGRAM” button together a third time (3 seconds) until the safe beeps and all status bar LEDs turn GREEN and let go. This tone confirms that the code has been reset.

If you make a mistake and the new code will not work, simply start over with step 2.

Register Your Safe

Vaultek strongly encourages you to register your safe as soon as receive it. Registration provides many benefits including technical support and ordering replacement keys should you replace them. Your safe has a unique product part number on the inside of the batty door and a 4-digit ID number engraved on the keys. You will need these numbers to register your new unit.

1. Locate your product part number. It is printed on the first page of your user manual and on the back of the battery cover.

2. Find your 4-digit number engraved on the keys.

3. A copy of your receipt or order number.

4. You are ready to register your safe.

2. Use a pencil to mark the holes for drilling.

3. Drill pilot holes.

4. Position safe in place and install screws through safe into pilot holes. Tighten screws.
