Crossing my fingers!

Looks different than mine...I was told by the safe manufacturer that my S&G lock was a lower-end one, hopefully yours will be better.

Just bought this:

According to the seller, it's compatible with my safe, and easy to install with just a screwdriver and a hacksaw, and comes complete with all the parts you need and instructions. I will post photos for a walkthrough of the installation, in case anyone else wants to attempt the same thing.

Ironic thing is, I think I paid an extra $50 when I bought my safe to get the electronic lock. Tanners had the exact same model in stock with a mechanical lock for $50 less.

Does this look like I could easily install an electronic lock?[Image: 10hisu1.jpg]

I have no clue, might wanna ask a locksmith. What brand safe is it, and how old? Most of the newer safes have a "standard" hole pattern and can easily be swapped back and forth between electronic and manual by anyone with a screwdriver and a hacksaw.

By the way, my $89 mechanical lock came in yesterday and it seems very well built and solid. Everything feels heavy. Hopefully I can get around to installing it today, but first I have to fix my heater (frozen pipes in the baseboard radiators) and my dishwasher. Dodgy

I just went through that here, because I forgot to fill in a gap above the basement window from the summer. Pipes leading to the kitchen sink froze. Had a pair of hair dryers mounted in the ceiling in the basement to thaw them out.

I never have problems with the domestic water lines freezing because they don't run near any outside walls. But my baseboards obviously do, and they freeze when it gets really cold, because I only run the wood stove and no hot water ever goes through the pipes. I'm thinking about adding anti-freeze to the baseboard loop. Anyway, I think this actually deserves its own thread, I'll make one later today.

I replaced the lock, and made a tutorial for your enjoyment:
