How to Change the Code on a Titan Series Electric Lock

This is the Titan Series electronic safe lock from Sargent & Greenleaf. On the left is the PivotBolt model. It's fully automatic. On the right is the DirectDrive model, which requires turning of the keypad to manually retract the lock bolt after the code is entered. To extend the bolt, the keypad is turned back to its original position. The locks operate slightly differently, but from a programming perspective, they are identical.

Changing the Code on a Titan PivotBolt Lock

Here are some simple instructions on changing the code on your Titan PivotBolt lock. The factory default code is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, pound (#). We can see that the lock operates, and when it relocks, we'll see the double flash of the LED and hear a double beep.

To change this, we press either 2, 2, star (*) or 3, 3, star (*). Either sequence will work correctly.

  1. So we'll press 2, 2, star (*).
  2. Now we'll put in our existing code, which we know to be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, followed by pound (#). We get five beeps.
  3. Now we'll put in our new code, and we will make it 6, 5, 4, 9, 8, 7, followed by pound (#).
  4. Now we'll put in that same new code again to verify our new code.

Now we've changed to a new code of 6, 5, 4, 9, 8, 7 followed by pound (#). We can see that the lock operates on that new code. We'll also see that the lock no longer operates on the factory default code of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. We get a long tone and a longer light of the red LED. That's an error tone and an error light that tells us we have entered an incorrect code. So, we know that we've changed from the factory default code to a code of our choosing.
