Simplex 7100 Programming Instructions
The door must be open.
1. Turn the outside thumbturn to the left (counterclockwise) to the stop position and return it to the right (clockwise) slowly to the horizontal position (Figure 11-1). This will clear any random buttons previously depressed.
2. Enter the existing code (Figure 11-2). The factory-set code is 2 and 4 pressed simultaneously, followed by 3.
3. Insert a Phillips-head screwdriver into the center of the combination change sleeve. Gently turn to the right (clockwise) approximately 1⁄8″ (3 mm) (Figure 11-3). A slight click should be felt. Do not force.
IMPORTANT: When removing the screwdriver, the central piece must return to its initial position, if not, set it back to its original position using the screwdriver.
4. Turn the outside thumbturn to the left (counterclockwise) to the stop position, once only, to clear the existing code from the mechanism, then release it, (Figure 11-4).
5. Select a new code and write it down (some or all of the buttons may be used for your new code, pressed individually or simultaneously).
NOTE: Each button may be used only once.
6. With the door open, enter your new code. Depress each button fully and release (Figure 11-5).
7. Turn the outside thumbturn to the right (A) (clockwise) to the stop position (Figure 11-6). The latch should retract. Now release the thumbturn. Try to turn the thumbturn to the right (clockwise). The thumbturn will not turn to the right (clockwise) unless the correct combination is entered. If it does turn and retracts the latch, see Step 9.
NOTE: Excessive force will result in slipping the thumbturn 180˚ degrees. The slipping mechanism, or force-proof clutch, protects the lock’s internal mechanism from forced entry.
8. If a wrong combination is entered after the desired combination has been programmed into the lock, turn the outside thumbturn to the left (counterclockwise) to the stop position and release (Figure 11-7). This will clear any previously depressed buttons. Enter the correct new combination (Figure 11-8). Turn the thumbturn to the right (clockwise) to the stop position and release (Figure 11-9). The thumbturn should rotate. The latch will be retracted flush with the face plate. The correct combination must be entered each time you want to unlock the door.
9. If, without entering the combination, you can retract the latch by turning the outside thumbturn to the right, it means that a step was done out of order and therefore no combination was entered. In this case, you must repeat Steps 1 to 7 but omit Step 2, as the lock does not have a combination.
10. Test the lock 2-3 times using the new combinations to ensure trouble-free operation.
