Cleaning Safe Body
Use a clean and soft cloth (such as a microfiber cleaning cloth) that is slightly damp with water to clean the exterior of the safe. Take care around the edges of any logos or pin striping as any pressure could cause damage to them.
Cleaning Safe Locks and Handles
Locks and handles are coated to protect from rust or tarnish. Do not use any kind of metal polish or harsh cleaning products. Simply wipe off with a soft, damp cloth. Minor scratches may be touched up with a paint touch up kit available from your dealer.
Electronic Lock Maintenance
While electronic locks do not need annual maintenance, changing out the battery once a year is highly recommended to ensure reliable access into the safe. We recommend using a 9-volt Duracell® or Energizer® alkaline battery with a “Use Date” at least 4 years in the future.
Manual Lock Maintenance
To keep a manual lock as reliable as possible, we recommend having a certified lock technician service annually. Avoid applying any lubricants to the lock as it could result in lock failure and may void the lock portion of the warranty.
Heat Expandable Door Seal
Seal does not require any maintenance, nor should it be removed.
Internal Locking Mechanism
The internal locking mechanism requires no maintenance. Opening the door panel of the safe by anyone other than a certified lock or safe technician may void the warranty.
Lubricating the Locking Bolts
To keep the locking bolt action smooth and relieve any stresses from the mechanism, add a small amount of lubricant to the locking bolts once a year. With the door open and the handle rotated counter-clockwise to extend the locking bolts, wipe a very small amount of lubricating grease onto the moving locking bolts around the door. We recommend using Super Lube™ or a multi-purpose silicone grease with Teflon®.
Preventing Damage to Contents
If safe is placed in a high humidity environment, consider purchasing a dehumidifier to help prevent rust or tarnish on guns and jewelry, or mildew on important documents or photos in the safe—see website for details.
