  • Schlage Cobra

General information includes ANSI/BHMA Grade, UL/cUL Fire Rating, available lock configurations, lever handing, key override option, keypad layout and button construction. Some of these features will help to identify the product as well as provide needed information for servicing and re-installation.

Each chart also includes information on the Master, Sub-Masters and “use” Codes. A “use” code unlocks the lock and includes User Codes, Emergency Codes and Service (single use) Codes. The Code section includes the number of codes, their hierarchy, digits per code, default codes, and user groups. We also include what might be the most important programming set of instructions - the instructions for resetting the lock when the master code is lost.
