SOURCE: how to unlock a cathedral electronic safe ea25

After opening the electronic safe (with the pre-set factory code of 159B) locate the small red button on the
inside of the door near the hinge.

2. Press the red button and then release it, you will hear a beep. DO NOT SHUT THE DOOR UNTIL YOU HAVE CONFIRMED THAT YOUR NEW SECURITY CODE HAS BEEN ENTERED CORRECTLY.
3. With the door open, enter your own personal security code, which can be 3- 8 digits long, and confirm your new code by pressing the letter “B” on the electronic touch pad. Before you close the door, try the new security code to make sure the lock release the knob so you can turn it and retract the live action locking bolts.
If the code fails, go through steps 1-3 again. If the code works successfully, then you should lock the safe. When you open the safe in the future enter the security code you have set followed by the letter “B” and turn the knob.

If the incorrect security code is entered 3 times you will have an automatic lockout for 20 seconds before you can try your code again. If the incorrect security code is entered 3 additional times there will be a 5- minute lockout before the code can be tried again.

BATTERY REPLACEMENT
This safe uses 4- AA batteries. Under normal use, batteries will last about 1 year. When the battery is low, a red light will come on warning you that the battery is low. To test the batteries, enter your security code. If the batteries are low the red light located in the middle of the top of the keypad will start to flash.

To replace the batteries, open the safe door with your security code and turn the knob. Push the batteries cover plate, which is located on the back of the door, and replace the old batteries.

YOU MUST PROGRAME YOUR SECURITY CODE AFTER YOU REPLACE THE BATTERIES. SEE STEPS 1- 3 UNDER “ENTERING YOUR SECURITY CODE”.
TROUBLE KEY
A “Trouble key” has been provided in case you forget or lose your security code. Remove the small central panel from the front of the faceplate. Insert the key and turn it counter clockwise. Then turn the knob on the door towards the right. This will manually open your safe. If you lose your key, you may purchase a replacement key by referencing the serial number located under the central panel by the lock.
MAINTENANCE FOR KEY AND ELECTRONIC SAFE
If the door of the safe starts to rub on the door frame, open the door per the instructions above. By the door hinges you will find a threaded stem. Use an Allen wrench to tighten the threaded stem. This will help realign the door and give you trouble free access to the contents of your safe.

SOURCE: sentry safe model 1330.

A Locksmith would say If your safe doesn't have a key, skip Step 3.
Turn the dial to zero.
Insert your sentry safe key and turn it until the plunger pops out.
Turn the dial to the left (counterclockwise) three times to the first number of the combination (pass the first number of your combination two times, stopping on it the third time).
Turn the dial to the right (clockwise) two times to the second number of the combination (pass your second number once, stopping on it the second time).
Turn the dial to the left to the last number (stop the first time on your last number).
Pull the handle down; cracking sentry safe open.

Cherokee 1998 hood latch won't open.cable frozen ?


frozen or broken. try a good whack on front on hood while someone pulls latch, see if you can free it up. no luck? try pounding at driver's side near the windshield while someone pulls latch. no luck? You can crawl under front with a screwdriver and reach up and try to release the latch manually. push the little lever the cable attaches to over towards driver's side. good luck. When open, see if cable operates latch: if good spray it liberally with penetrant. If your cable is broken, just get a new one or visit a salvage yard. The hood latch can be adjusted a small amount.

Re: garage door opener . i recently replaced the battery in my craftsman wireless keypad now the code doesnt work and i cant get the door open to press the reset button. how do i fix


Changing the battery wouldn't have caused the keypad to quit. You must have had a problem before the battery change. If you have a vault door. That is one with no other way to enter you will have to call a door technician. They can drill a hole in the door, use a special tool to pull the release and then install a keyed release in the hole they drilled.

I have installed a pace Edwards jack rabbit roll up toneau cover on a 07 tundra. The mounting clamps are attached at the front of the rail near the canister and about 8" from the tailgate. The problem...


As you may be aware, the knob has to be rotated to pull in the latches so you can open the top. When you pull on the strap to close the top, I releases the latches so they will stop at the 1 ft intervals.

1. Make sure that when you pull on the strap, you see the knob pop back to the lock position (handle going side to side) If it stays in a front to back orientation, the strap is not pulling on the latch release.
2. On either side of the roll top, there is a plastic block that keeps the latch bars in place. If one of the screws falls out, you will lose control of the latch on that side so it no longer locks the cover at any of the intervals.

I've had a jackrabbit cover for the past 8 years and I've only had a couple little issues related to the latching. The things i indicated are what I found to be the problem at different times.

Cannot put top up on 1987 allante the latch is locked in and icannot open the latch on the pull down motor


There's a switch ( kinda same shape, color & operation method as your power seat switches) behind driver's seat near the 2 Boot/Top 'release' pull tabs,, it's mounted on the "roof" of the open compartment area behind the seats. Slide your hand along there til you feel it. It recycles the pull-down motor up & down & should release the top. Also try in the trunck, there's 2 hard plastic strings with loops at end,, pull & see if it releases it.

Door won't latch so opener can open it


The two halves of the trolley should latch if you pull straight down on the rope and release. Usually you can then just run the opener and it will latch but sometimes you need to move the door manually to get the two halves to meet.

05 tacoma tailgate latch stuck


I had the same problem. I figure that dirt/rust may have accumulated inside the latching mechanism. I was able to fix it using the following steps.
1 - Remove the plastic cap that covers the top of the gate.
2 - Remove as many of the remaining torx bolts from the inside cover (you will need to do this to get inside the gate).
3 - Next, try and get some WD40 on/in the latch mechanism.
4 - Using a large screwdriver, you will need to pry the lever attached to the cable in order to release the latch.

Not a pretty process but it seemed to work. I give the latches a good lubrication frequently now, until I get around to replacing them.

DOOR WONT OPEN


My 2002 Kia Rio with manual locks also wouldn't unlock. the connecting rods would bend enough that I could pull the inside plunger up or turn the key, but in either case it would snap back when I let go, and the door remained locked.

The problem is a broken spring at the latch mechanism. Getting it unlocked is a matter of wiggling and banging the handles and lock until the lever the spring is supposed to control moves. The lever is in line with the car, so gravity might help if you park facing uphill or downhill. I wish I'd inspected the latch carefully enough to tell which.

Once the door is open, remove the interior door panel. The hard part is the window crank: push the heavy wire clip off the crank's shaft between the crank and the panel. Save the plastic sheet inside the panel; it protects the mechanisms from collecting moisture in your interior and rusting. A few screws and a snap or two will allow you to lift the panel up off the inside lip of the window.

The latch is held in by the 3 big screws in the door's edge, but you also need to disconnect some connecting rods that go to the various latch and lock handles. The plastic clips that hold the rods into their levers can be rotated to unsnap from the rod, the the rod can be pulled easily our of the clip. You'll see when you try it.

On mine, I found a broken spring that had connected two hooks right across the top of the latch mechanism. I came online to find a replacement spring or mechanism and ended up here, but my rubber band I cut from a bicycle inner tube is working fine for now.

Go ahead. Say something about fixing a broken Kia with a rubber band.
