How to Change the Batteries on a Digital Safe

The hardest part about changing the battery in a digital safe is finding where it is. But don't worry, it's not inside. The battery compartment is under the keypad, and has a little tiny hole for removal. If you don't have a jeweler's screwdriver that is small enough, you can use a straightened-out paper clip. The battery is a 9 volt.

Step 1

Insert the jeweler's screwdriver or paper clip into the small hole in the plastic panel, just below the keypad and to the right of the keyhole.

Step 2

Slide the panel to the right.

Step 3

Carefully pull the old battery out.

Step 4

Carefully unsnap the wire connector from of the old battery. The connections are like clothing snaps and just pull off.

Step 5

Snap the connector onto the new battery. Be sure to observe polarity--it will fit only one way.

Step 6

Carefully put the new battery into the battery compartment, storing the wires out of the way of the cover.

Step 7

Insert the cover in its slots, and slide it back into place with the jeweler's screwdriver or the paper clip.
