Brinks Home Security Safes

i think with this kind of safe it comes with 2 keys, one which requires the code to be entered, and a master key that will unlock without requiring the code.

if you have the master key, just use that.

after you have opened the door you can reset the code by pressing the reset button (a pin / paperclip required to press)
on the back of the door.

Do i need to keep the door open when i reset my Apple Safe Master YDB-AJ?

You may not need to have the door open when changing a code (many safes do not require this) but it is a certifiable insanity not to keep the door open when reprogramming any safe - electronic or mechanical.

If something goes wrong in the code changing process and you wind up with an unknown or scrambled with the door locked....well, use your imagination....

If the door is open at least you can call a professional to default it at best, or access the contents and junk the safe or lock at worst.

With most mechanical safes the door must be open in order to access the change code procedure, but electronic locks may not have that safety built in.

Also, don't attempt it without the manual for that model. And look for any section that talks about defaulting the codes before you start. And operate the lock with the new code a few times with the door open and check it works, before closing the door and trusting you have got it right.

I may be overly suspicious, but either your boss has no clue that this could be a poisoned chalice job, or he knows full well, and doesn't want the egg on his face!

good luck

Change code

If it is locked and the person you got it from didn't give you the existing code, you can't. We see this all the time. If there was a way to bypass the code to the safe, anyone could do it. They are called a 'safe' for a reason, the contents are safe once the door is closed and locked :-) The only way to get in is to take to a locksmith who will drill the door, open it and put a new door on it. This is not usually a cost effective open with a small locker type safe.

We have just moved countries and left the safe locked open whilst moving. We are now can't get the door bolts to open? Is there a way to reset the combination with the door open and the bolts in the locked...

I'm afraid the electronics thinks the door id locked, on the other hand in most safes you can access the logic in the door when the door is open. Not knowing what brand and model you own, it is impossible for anyone to give a better advice.

I changed the batteries and now I can't open the safe- do I have to reset the code and if so how?

Assuming you've not changed the master code:

To Open the safe with the master code:
Enter the master code (pre-selected 123456) and press #. The LED will show -OPEN- and the door will open automatically and at the same time the LED will show "OPENED".

Trying to reset code for a Garage Master Security + garage door opener - with no luck -

If you are trying to reset the code for the keypad, locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit. Press and immediately release this button and then walk over to the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

If you are trying to reset the code for the hand remotes, you can't.
