Programming Preparation
Step 1. Installing Batteries
The digital keypad is powered by 4 “AA” batteries which
must be installed before you can begin programming
your personal code. For your convenience, we have
provided you with 4 “AA” batteries. For best results
and depending on use, we recommend replacing the
batteries at least once a year.

digital keypad.
2. To open the compartment, press firmly in on the
battery cover and slide it to the right for removal.
3. Install 4 new “AA” batteries in the battery
compartment. Make sure they are installed in the
correct direction as marked on the inside of the
battery compartment.
4. Once the batteries are installed properly, replace
the cover by sliding it back on from the left.
Important: BATTERY REMOVAL
If the batteries are removed or fail, the

Use, Care and Maintenance
Programming A Passcode
Appropriate Use of Your Safe
First Alert® fire safes protect paper records and many other valuables.
Verified fire protection for:
Memory sticks, CD’s & DVD’s, USB Drives.
This product is NOT INTENDED to protect audio or video cassettes, floppy discs,
data cartridges, film and photos or photo negatives
Testing shows that the interior temperature of the safe remains below 350°F
(177°C) for 1 hour during a fire up to 1700°F (927°C) when used properly. Your
safe must be closed and latched in order to properly protect the contents from fire.
Moisture Warning
Due to the high moisture content of the fire retardant insulation used in
UL Classified fire safes, we recommend that you place delicate items such as
pictures or intricate jewelry into an air-tight container before storing them in
your safe. Avoid placing your safe in areas of high humidity. For optimum
performance, the safe should be opened and aired out for at least 20 minutes
every two weeks.
Firearms Warning
This safe is not designed to store medication, items with combustible content,
guns or other weapons. Please contact BRK / SISCO at 800-223-8566 or shop
www.FirstAlert.com for information about safes that can securely store your
firearms or medication.
Pearls
Because pearls sustain heat damage at temperatures below 350° F, we advise
that you DO NOT store pearls in this fire safe.
Safe Care and Maintenance
When properly maintained, your safe will continue to provide protection for
many years. In order to ensure optimum performance of your safe, please
follow these simple precautions:
Clean Hands - Do not attempt to operate combination dial if your hands have
excessive dirt, debris, or liquids on them. Under normal circumstances, it is not
necessary to wash your hands before using the safe.
Clean Safe – To clean the outside surface of your safe, it is recommended that
you use a mild cleaner (e.g., window cleaner) to avoid scratching or discoloring
the surface. Do not use abrasive cleansers.
Moisture – If the safe is stored in an area of high moisture content (such as near
the ocean or in a tropical climate), moisture from the environment may become
trapped inside the safe. If this applies to you, open the safe on a regular basis to
promote air circulation.
For future reference, store this Operation and Installation Guide in a secure area
away from the safe. DO NOT DISCARD!

important information that specifically identifies your safe. This information is
extremely important to assuring prompt and accurate customer assistance.
Removable Shelf (Model 2054DF only)
To remove the shelf, simply lift it up and tilt it on a sufficient angle to provide
clearance for removal.
It is strongly recommended that you identify and record the following information
in the “Safe Identification Record” form located on the inside back cover of this
manual:
Adjustable & Removable Shelves (Models 2084DF & 2118DF)
These models are designed with 5 position adjustable shelves to allow greater
flexibility and further accommodate your particular security storage needs.
Model Number
Serial Number
Key Number
Locating Model and Serial Numbers
Most First Alert® safes include a small metallic silver or gray tag affixed to one
of the surfaces. This tag is usually located on the front or right side of the safe.
This tag contains the Serial Number, and on selected models a similar tag is
attached containing the Model Number. If a Model Number tag is not attached
to the safe, then it can be located on the front or side panel of the box that the
safe was packaged in. Write this number down for future reference.
Key Number
The Key Number is located on the key. If you do not have the key, the number
is also imprinted on the Emergency Override Key lock. See Emergency Override
Key, page 3, for instructions on locating this lock.
Important: DO NOT REMOVE TAGS!
In case your safe becomes inoperable or you lose your keys, these identification
numbers will be needed to correct the problem. It is recommended that the
number tags remain in place on the safe. If removal is necessary, then they
should be attached to the inside back cover of the Operation and Installation
Guide. Store in a safe and secure place for future reference.
To Install:
Your Shelf and Shelf Support Clips have been
shipped inside your safe and wrapped for protection
from damage during shipping.
SUPPORT
GUIDES
1. Remove Shelf and (4) Shelf Support Clips
from protective wrapping.
2. Determine the desired position of your shelf
and note the corresponding Support Guide
Slots (2 on each side of interior walls) that
are best suited to support the shelf in that
position.
3. Install the (4) Shelf Support Clips in the same
position on all four support guides.
4. Install shelf into position by placing it inside
the safe (tilting if necessary) at a point above
the desired position.
5. Once inside, lower it into position until
resting on Shelf Support Clips. To change the position of the shelf:
Simply remove the shelf and reposition the (4) shelf
support clips by sliding them up and out of the
support slots and reinstalling them into the new
positions. Then reinstall shelf as described above.
Important: REMOVING SHELF
If you remove the shelf, it is strongly recommended that you DO NOT
DISCARD it. You may lay the shelf flat in the bottom of the safe to assure
full flexibility in the future.

Additional Features: Bolt-Down Kit
Additional Features: Bolt-Down Kit
Model 2054DF (only)
Installing Your Safe
Certain models include a Bolt-Down kit with break-off bolts and a mounting
template for permanent mounting to a flat surface. Once the safe is installed
using the break-off bolts, it is permanent and cannot be easily removed.

Break-off Bolts (Supplied)

Mounting Template (Supplied)
Drill
Screwdriver
Model 2054DF (only)
Installation Procedure
1. Choose a mounting location that is easily
accessible from both above and below.
2. Carefully position the template on the
location that you want to mount the safe.
3. Create the guide marks by pressing a sharp
tool through the circles at the four corners of
the template and into the mounting location.
4. Drill a hole (the diameter of the break-off bolt
shaft) through each guide mark.
Important: DON’T DRILL SAFE
Do not drill into the feet, bottom or any other
part of safe! Doing so will ELIMINATE THE FIRE
PROTECTION that has been designed into your
safe and invalidate all stated warranties.
5. Before attaching the safe, you should check
carefully that the 4 holes you have drilled
match up precisely with the holes that have
been pre-drilled in the bottom of the safe.
Important: SECURING TO FLOOR
Many consumers prefer to bolt their safe to the floor to
increase protection from theft and resistance to tipping.
If your safe was manufactured with bolt down holes predrilled in the floor of the safe, bolting your safe to the
floor may provide additional theft deterrence.
If you have ANY QUESTIONS about how to accomplish
this, or are uncomfortable using the tools necessary
to complete this project, please check with your local
retailer, home center, or independent contractor.
6
Note: On certain models, It may be necessary
to remove the rubber foot pads that are
screwed into the bolt-down holes at the
factory.
6. Once you have confirmed that the holes
are aligned and in the location you desire,
install the break-off bolts and washers from
underneath the mounting location (through
the furniture or shelf), and into the pre-drilled
holes in the safe.
7. Turn bolts until the screw heads break off.
