How do I change the code on my Schlage lock 4 digit?

Answered by Edward Huber

I can provide a detailed answer on how to change the code on a Schlage lock with a 4-digit code. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you through the process:

Step 1: Find your programming code
The programming code is a 6-digit code that is unique to your lock and is used to enter programming mode. This code is usually provided by the manufacturer or can be found in the lock’s instruction manual. If you cannot find it, you may need to contact Schlage customer support for assistance.

Step 2: Enter your programming code
Once you have located your programming code, stand in front of your lock and press the Schlage button on the keypad, followed by entering your 6-digit programming code. The Schlage button is typically located above the keypad and has the Schlage logo on it.

Step 3: Press the Schlage and number 1 button simultaneously
After entering the programming code, you need to press the Schlage button again, but this time simultaneously with the number 1 button on the keypad. Hold both buttons down until you hear a beep or see a light flash on the lock. This indicates that the lock is in programming mode and ready to accept a new entry code.

Step 4: Enter your new entry code
Once you are in programming mode, enter your new 4-digit entry code on the keypad. Make sure to choose a code that is easy for you to remember but not easily guessable by others. Avoid using common codes like “1234” or repetitive patterns like “1111”. Be creative and choose a unique code.

Step 5: Enter your 4-digit code again to confirm
To confirm that you have entered the new code correctly, re-enter the same 4-digit code on the keypad. If the lock beeps or flashes a light again, it means that the new code has been successfully programmed. If not, repeat steps 3 and 4 to try again.

And that’s it! You have successfully changed the default 4-digit code on your Schlage lock. Remember to test the new code before closing the lock to ensure it works properly. It’s also a good idea to keep a record of your new code in a safe place in case you forget it in the future.
