Basically what the title says, this post is your go-to resource if you’re looking to program your Garrison Round Electronic Deadbolt—but not sure how to go about it.
Note that this guide is for Garrison Electronic Deadbolt 046-7495-2 and 046-7845-0 models.
That said, let’s head over to the instructions.
Changing the Programming Code on a Garrison Round Electronic Deadbolt
Your Garrison Electronic Lock comes with a default 4-digit Programming Code and it’s recommended that you change the default code to ensure security.
The default Programming Code is 0000. This code allows you to make any programming changes in your lock such as adding new User Codes, deleting existing codes, and more. That is, to perform any action that would change your lock programming, you will have to first enter the programming code.
So, here’s how to change the default Programming Code on your Garrison Round Electronic Deadbolt:
- Enter the default Programming Code (0000) and then press the Lock / Unlock button. (See the image above to help you find the Lock / Unlock button).
- Enter 7 and then press the Lock / Unlock button.
- Enter your new Programming Code and then press the Lock / Unlock button to complete the process.
Now your new Programming Code is active, and that’s the code to use for all other programming.
Note: If you’ve previously changed your Programming Code, you can still change it with the above method—if you want to. But ensure you enter the current Programming Code instead of the default Code—during the process.
Quick Tip: On the keypad, you can see that each button contains two numbers. To enter the first number on a button, press the button once, and to enter the second number, quickly press the button twice. That is, if you have “1 2” on a button and you want to enter 1, press the button once and then quickly press the button twice if you want to enter 2.
How to Delete an Existing User Code on a Garrison Round Electronic Deadbolt
Your new Garrison Digital Deadbolt comes with a default User Code—1234. As you know, a User Code is used to unlock the deadbolt via the keypad. However, you need to delete the default User Code and then add new ones—for security reasons.
That said, here’s how to delete any existing User Code on your Garrison Round Electronic Lock:
- Enter your current Programming Code and press the Lock / Unlock button.
- Enter 3 and then press the Lock / Unlock button.
- Enter the User Code to be deleted and then press the Lock / Unlock button to complete the process.
And that’s all about deleting a single User Code on your Garrison Electronic Deadbolt.
Note: This method deletes not only the default User Code; you can delete any single User Code (including the ones you created) with this method.
Creating/Adding New User Codes
As mentioned, you need to add User Codes of your choosing after deleting the default code. The lock stores up to 20 four-digit User Codes, so you can add more User Codes depending on your need.
Here’s here to create new User Codes:
- Enter your current Programming Code and then press the Lock / Unlock button.
- Enter 1 and then press the Lock / Unlock button.
- Enter a new User Code and then press the Lock / Unlock button to complete the process.
Now your new User Code is active and you can use it to unlock the lock. Repeat the same steps above to add more User Codes—if you want to.
Deleting All Existing User Codes
This lock allows you to delete all programmed User Codes at once.
If you have created more than one User Code on your lock and want to delete all of them for any reason, here is how to do it:
- Enter your Programming Code and then press the Lock / Unlock button.
- Now enter 5 and then press the Lock / Unlock button to delete all existing User Codes at once.
Note: You can’t lock your lock via the keypad until you add new User Codes. See how to add new User Codes above.
How to Restore Factory Default Setting on a Garrison Round Electronic Deadbolt
You may want to reset your Garrison lock to fix a glitch or clear all User Codes and settings—especially if you acquired a previously owned lock.
In any case, keep in mind that you can’t undo the changes once your lock is reset. So you’ll have to reprogram it using the default Programming Code.
That said, here’s how to restore factory settings on a Garrison Round Electronic Deadbolt:
- On the interior assembly of the lock, insert a pin into the hole below the turn-piece (to reach the Reset button) for 5 seconds. (See the image above to help you locate the hole/Reset button).
- Next, wait until you hear three long beeps. The beeps indicate the factory reset is complete.
You can now reprogram your lock with the default Programming Code.
Indicator Sound and Lights
Certain commands on your lock may trigger specific beeps and flashes. Perhaps you’re not sure why your lock beeps or flashes different colors, see the table below for indicator sound and flashes meaning.
|Indicator Sounds and Lights||Meaning|
|One green flash and one beep||Successful operation|
|Three red flashes and three beeps||Operation error.|
|Five red flashes and five beeps||Code input error, system shuts down.|
|Ten red flashes and ten rapid beeps||Low battery power.|
|Two green flashes and two beeps||Successful programming.|
|Three orange flashes and three long beeps||Factory settings restored.|
|Flashes orange slowly||In programming mode.|
This lock uses 3 AAA alkaline batteries. If the batteries are low, replace them with high-quality AAA alkaline.
The battery replacement process is quite simple:
- Remove the battery cover on the interior assembly.
- Remove the weak batteries from the battery sitting and then replace them with the new batteries.
Ensure that you get high-quality AAA alkaline batteries—Energizer or Duracell are excellent brands to consider. Lithium batteries are not recommended and do not mix new batteries with old ones to avoid battery leakage and other issues.
So that’s how to program your new Garrison Round Electronic Deadbolt. If you have a previously owned lock, you can reset it and then reprogram it—following the instructions in this post.
Make sure to change the default codes to prevent unauthorized access to your home.
