Here is the manual for my GunVault model GV1000C – Mini – Deluxe. I include it here so I can’t forget how to program the darn thing.
BTW, I’m very happy with my Gun Vault. It’s convenient to take to the range because I just throw the thing in the car and go. I like that it’s legal to leave a GunVault in my front seat if I choose to.
I also like that I can leave it sitting in the open on a shelf, right next to my bed and it doesn’t look like A GUN! A GUN!, it looks like just another little non-descript box on my shelf. I get instant access, visitors don’t, and no one is potentially turned off by its presence.
Criticisms: The manual says to replace the 8 AA batteries every year. For what it does, a set of batteries should last pretty much forever… Alkalines would last 5+ years. Maybe they do and the manual is just being cautious. Another criticism: the screws holding the battery compartment came loose on me and the batteries fell out after I brought it to the range. I put them back in with washers so that shouldn’t be a problem any more.
So i just replaced my batteries that have been in mine for 5 years, just started worrying they would run out when I really needed them no that is was low.
Joshua, that’s good to know. I plugged the gun vault in so it shouldn’t be drawing down the batteries while it’s sitting there. But I don’t know really.
[…] compartment; the glove compartment isn’t considered a locked box but something like a GunVault […]
Thank you thank you thank you for posting that manual! Accidentally reset my code while changing the batteries in 2 gunvaults (what a pain), couldn’t find the manual but used yours.
Jerry, you are very welcome. Glad I could help!
I don’t know how long the batteries lasted. I know they lasted five or six years, but when I tried the safe (gun vault) after about eight years, it didn’t open. And then I couldn’t find the keys. I finally found them, but that would have been a nightmare. Anyway, I replaced the batteries, and now will replace them every two or three years. Thanks for posting the manual. I need to figure out how to set the code.
