How To Change The Code On A Lock

By | February 19, 2018

Keyless entry locks enable tight control over who gains access to your business. The ability to reprogram the access codes allows you to set security levels for specific areas and to restrict the times when staff can gain access. As updating the codes regularly is essential to achieving high security, choosing a lock that can be reprogrammed on the door will save time and make it easier to perform code changes.

Changing The Code On A Mechanical Pushbutton Lock

Most mechanical combination locks are designed with colour coded tumblers inside a keypad, which can be rearranged to change the code combination. The position of the red coded tumbler buttons within the keypad determine which numbers hold the code. All other keys house un-coded tumbler buttons.

The lock must be unscrewed from the door, prior to carefully removing a spring-loaded cover plate without damaging the delicate components. The old code is cleared, and a new combination created prior to carefully replacing the spring control bar and reinstalling the lock on the door.

A Laborious & Fiddly Job

While high quality mechanical reprogrammable pushbutton locks are considerably cheaper to source and install than an electronic system, the inconvenience of removing the locks may result in code changes taking place less frequently than recommended. As the lock must be removed from the door, it only becomes practical to change codes when the building is out of use. In addition, the lock can easily be damaged if the code change is not performed correctly, rendering the lock out of action.
