LockView, a Windows™ based software, provides basic programming functions for non-keypad equipped eLocks. In addition, all models of the eLock can be programmed for time and weekly programming and have audit capabilities. The LockView software provides adding, editing, deleting, and assigning access rights for eLocks, users and supervisors. Using LockView, the audit log contains up to the last 1,500 entry attempts with date, time, access granted or denied, and user name.
The five lock models of the Refrigerator Kit have an RJ-11 port that can be accessed without opening the refrigerator door.
Depending upon the configuration of the refrigerator, the eLock can be installed using screws or double-sided tape. The double-sided tape is the type used by vehicle manufacturers to attach emblems onto the body.
Note: Determine the location of the cooling coils prior to drilling any holes.
I was invited to observe this installation of the CompX eLock installed onto a refrigerator using the double-sided tape to initially secure the strike onto the top of the refrigerator body. The facility mandated that no holes be drilled into the body of the refrigerator. Since there are no refrigerant coils in the door of the refrigerator, holes could be drilled and the eLock body could be secured using tamper resistant Torx T-15 screws.
The eLock was installed onto the center of the refrigerator door. The reason was the door to the refrigerator was curved from the center to the sides and was originally equipped with a lock in the center of the door that no longer operated. To fill the gap caused by the curvature of the door, flat washers were added behind each mounting screw hole.
Step 1. Measure two inches beneath each side top mounting hole on the eLock. This provides a better location for the top two mounting screws.
Step 2. Drill a 1/8" diameter hole through on each side.
Step 3. Enlarge the four remaining mounting holes to 1/8" diameter.
Step 4. Remove anything on the surface of the refrigerator door and top. Clean the surface.
Step 5. Use a level to properly position the eLock body onto the door of the refrigerator. Note: Level the refrigerator prior to leveling the eLock.
Step 6. Measure the top of the refrigerator and draw a centerline.
Step 7. Position the strike along the centerline with the tip pointing up.
Step 8. With the strike held in place on top of the refrigerator, place the eLock body onto the door, engaging the strike.
Step 9. Use a pencil to mark the location for the strike.
Step 10. Cut off a piece of the double-sided tape, the same length as the strike that will be positioned on top of the refrigerator body.
Step 11. Remove the backing from one side of the tape.
Step 12. Position the tape onto the refrigerator within the drawn lines. Press down hard to ensure good adhesion.
Step 13. Remove the backing from the other side of the tape.
Step 14. Place the strike onto the tape and press down hard to ensure good adhesion.
Step 15. With the strike attached to the top of the refrigerator, place the eLock body onto the door, engaging the strike.
Step 16. Remove the battery compartment cover and install the six AA batteries.
Step 17. Follow the getting started instructions, input a four-digit minimum Personal Identification Number, and test the operation of the eLock. See programming instructions towards the end of this article.
Step 18. Adjust the eLock as necessary make certain the latch retracts and engages the strike.
Step 19. When proper positioned, mark the location for the six mounting screws.
Step 20. Drill the six 1/8" diameter holes just through the sheet metal of the door.
Step 21. Mount the eLock body using the supplied security Torx screws. Test the operation of the eLock.
Step 22. Mount the cover onto the strike and secure with the two provided screws. The cover must be installed as the lock can be easily opened without the cover being attached.
The next series of steps is to program the eLock for Supervisors and Users. For this installation at this time, only one code was programmed.
The CompX eLock Refrigerator Kit does not have any programmed Supervisor or User codes. To program the eLock Refrigerator Lock from the keypad, using the following:
To start, program a Supervisor P.I.N., four digits minimum, into the eLock.
