SQUARE. 3RD TIME I HAVE REPLIDED

I am sorry I did not received any response from you.

Anyway, You must replace the batteries located in under the keypad.

Use a large paperclip to unlock the cover. Push the paperclip into the small hole while at the same time, sliding the battery cover to the right. Gently remove the battery housing and replace batteries. Use fresh lithium or alkaline batteries only and before you remove the old one make it sure the new batteries are ready and replace it as quickly as possible (one by one). This is to prevent the memory reset to factory setting.

Note: Please do not give negative rating,that is not helpful on both of us it just destroy my overall performance. Just reply.
Hope this information will be helpful.

Dear *****,

My name is ***** ***** I am another Safes expert, here.

I just wanted to clarify some information re: changing the batteries on your V260 safe.

There is a plastic panel under your keypad, that is rather long. Look for a very small hole toward the left or center of the panel. Put a pen point or the end of a paperclip into the hole and press in; as you press in, slide the panel off, to the right.

Inside, you will see your battery holder; disconnect and remove. Take out your old batteries and notice if there is any corrosion like rust or leaked battery acid in the holder; if so, wipe it out with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol, then dry completely. Insert your new batteries and reconnect the battery holder, replacing it in the safe door. Slide the plastic panel back on, by sliding it to the left.

Changing your batteries will NOT void your factory set combination; however, if you have added a programmer PIN or user combination, those will need to be reset.

I'm including the owner's manual for your safe, so you can see all the instructions yourself and for future use. As you can see, your safe may have come with an override key, that you can use in emergencies, to open it:
