Replace elctronic key pad fr tumbler lock

Unfortunately most safes cannot be converted from an electronic keypad to a dial lock. Those that can be are specific to the type of lock i.e. type 1, type 2 etcetera. I had the same problem with my safe where the keypad would accept the code but not open the lock so I had to use the key. I contacted the manufacturer and found that the circuit board was faulty and they sent me a new improved version for free. Your safe has a five year warranty and even if the warranty has expired I would contact First Alert to see if they can remedy your dilemma. They would also be able to advise you if your keypad can be converted to a dial lock. If it can be converted I would recommend having it installed by a certified locksmith that guarantees their work.

Does anyone have keys for Gunvault gv2000? Lost my keys during a move. Did not use the electronic key pad. Any ideals?

That is like asking if we have the keys to your house or car. They come keyed different, however if you are lucky there is a code on the lock it self. Best solution take it to a locksmith shop. Look for one that had been around for at least 10 years and preferably works on safes. This lock can be picked open and keys fit though not easily. The easy way is to drill it out and replace the lock. Unfortunately the cost of this is going to be close to a new container so I hope it has a code on the lock 20-30 bucks on the high end for a code key. Take it in to a lock shop.
good luck.

I cannot open sentry safe tc8 331. How can I change the batteries and where are they

This safe came with two long keys (maybe 6 inches). Rotate the key pad and it will come off. Insert one of the keys in the slot and turn. Should be able to pull the locking arm down now and open the safe. The batteries are inside, behind the plastic plate on the door. It slides up a little and then comes off.

Lost key

To order replacement keys, for small chests and files, you will need to know the key numbers which can be found right around where the key goes in. It should be a stamped number, letters, or both located around the keyhole. For Personal, Home and Home/Office Safes, you will need the model number and serial number. I think that the most economical place to buy keys is from You can do a search for "lost keys" and it will give you a screen where you can enter your model number and key number.
