Chubb combination safes, like other residential and commercial safes, protect valuables such as documents, money, jewellery or electronic storage media, from theft and/or fire or flood. Standard Chubb combination safes come in a variety of styles and sizes for placement in virtually any area, including under a floor or in a cupboard or drawer. Although Chubb offers electronic locks with battery operated keypads as an option, Standard Chubb safes typically utilise a wheel lock system and open with a four-or three-digit code.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Position the dial so that “0” rests below the down-pointing arrow (opening mark) at the 12 o’clock position.

  2. 2

    Turn the dial right (clockwise) five times to enter the first number of your code. Pass the number under the arrow four times. Turn the dial once more (fifth time) and then stop with your number directly under the arrow.

  3. 3

    Enter the second number of your code. Turn the dial left (counter-clockwise) four times until the second number rests beneath the arrow on the fourth turn.

  4. 4

    Pass the third number clockwise beneath the arrow twice and then on the third turn stop.

  5. 5

    Complete the last code entry. Turn the dial left two times, stopping beneath the arrow on the second turn.

  6. 6

    Place your hand on the door handle and then turn the dial one last time right/clockwise until the dial stops turning-approximately a half turn. Turn the handle to open the door. If the dial doesn’t stop, an error probably occurred during the dialling process. Repeat the steps to enter your code.

  1. 1

    Turn the dial until the “0” rests beneath the opening mark arrow and then enter the first number of your code. Turn the dial left (counter-clockwise) three turns, passing the number under the arrow three times. Turn the dial a fourth time, but stop the dial with your number directly under the arrow instead of passing by it.

  2. 2

    Move the dial right (clockwise) three times until the second number rests beneath the arrow.

  3. 3

    Go left again to enter your third and last code number. Pass the number beneath the arrow once, turn the dial once more and then stop under the arrow.

  4. 4

    Grasp the safe door handle, turn the dial one last time right/clockwise until the dial stops turning-approximately a half turn-and then turn the handle to open the door. If the dial doesn’t stop, repeat all steps to re-enter the code.

Tips and warnings

  • If you have a Chubb safe with an optional electronic lock, simply type your code on the keypad and turn the safe's door handle to open. Chub combination safe electronic locks typically advise users of when it’s safe to open the door-an LED flashes green and/or the lock beeps. If you enter the code wrong four times, wait five minutes (the typical electronic lock delay period) and then try again.
  • Always turn the wheel slowly; spinning the wheel may cause an error.
  • Always start over if you make even the slightest mistake while dialling a wheel lock. Turning the dial in the wrong direction at any point can result in the lock not recognising the combination.
