Problem with Master Lock 5400

My tenant left my rental property, leaving the Master Lock 5400 on the front door with the keys in it, but not the code. I can get in the house through the garage, but I cannot get the key out of the lockbox

Any ideas what I can do to open the lockbox? I cannot reach the tenant

You have 10,000 combinations to go through. Best to cut if off and bring it some place comfortable to try out all of the combinations from 0000 to 9999. Or take it to a machine ship and have someone grind the thing open.

How do I open the lock if I do t know the code? Tenant changed it when they moved? And I can't find your answer

Hi Dick

Are you talking about your actual lock on the door or a mobile phone? If it's your lock on the door.... I would suggest trying to find out your landlord can get a hold of the old tenant... or you have to call a locksmith who will have to take a look. First, call your landlord and get them to contact the old tenant to see if they know the code.

Previous tenant was telstraclear

Yes, if paying for that service have them come out and make sure it is working and properly hooked up--should be no fee for that.

I have a tenant that rekeyed our smart key lock and now I can not get into the building. I can no longer get in touch with the tenant. How can i rekey the lock without the entry key? My name is Dave...

if you do not have the learned key that works the lock you will need to take the lock to a locksmith that has the reset tool and they can re-learn a new key to the lock.
while at the locksmith shop - have them show you the correct way to re-learn more keys for the future -- and it is very important that you keep a working key for the lock so if the future tenants do not return keys to you, you will be able to re-key to a new key. ( you will need the special tool that fits into the little hole in the cylinder face -- get this tool from the lock shop, they should have plenty ).

Trunk will not open !

The trunk lock is incorporated in the central locking system. This means that you can either lock or unlock the trunk by means of either of the front doors. You can also operate the trunk lock directly with the master key even if the vehicle is centrally locked.

Are you sure it is the Master Key? Try the key in the glove box lock. The power door locks should unlock the trunk for you turn the key if it is right over to the right turn it right over to the left . you turn the key to far right to stop the boot been opened when the doors are not closed.

If you don't want to destroy the lock, you'll have to systematically run through the possible codes (there are 10,000 of them).
