VaultLOCKS® 3050: Small, Secure, And Portable Key Storage Alpha Lockbox
The VaultLOCKS® 3050 Alpha Lockbox offers A-Z dials, ideal for when your code can't be fulfilled with a standard alpha tumbler. A quick online search will confirm that the 3050 design & functionality is very unique. We designed this lockbox after receiving feedback from our preservation contractors that they were receiving codes that were outside of what the standard alpha lockbox was capable of. Our patented design solved this problem by including all 26 letters on each wheel. The letters are presented in sets of 2, allowing you to spell any possible 3 letter code that's required of you. Preset to MFS (MN FU HS).
- Standard Alpha Lockbox: No Z available, can't meet this code requirement
- 3050 Lockbox: AZ AZ CX, code achieved
- Built Secure: Our 3000 series lockboxes feature zinc alloy box & dials, with a hardened iron steel shackle
- No Tools Needed: The only things you need to utilize our lockboxes are your hands & a code. Other lockboxes on the market require screwdrivers and de-coding rings to get set up. You'll be able to set & utilize any of our VaultLOCKS® lockboxes without fuss or extra components
- Largest Key Storage Compartment: The outer shell size of the lockbox doesn't matter. It's the size of the inner compartment where you fit your keys that matters the most. Our 3000 series lockboxes offer 45 cu cm of space, 12 cu cm more than the competition. That translates into fitting 13 standard house keys into the 3050 lockbox (see images for more examples of size)
- Hinged Construction: Never lose the door to your lockbox in the snow or at night! This popular hinge construction keeps your lockbox in one piece for easy access.
- 90 Degree Angle: The hinged door opens 90 degrees, meaning you're easily able to rest your keys in the lockbox without them falling out. Ideal for when photographing the lockbox & keys for a work order
- Protecting Your Door from Dings & Scratches: All of our hanging lockboxes include either plastic or vinyl covering on the shackle, and thick foam padding on the back of the lockboxes to prevent dings & scratches on your doors & door frames from usage
How Does the 3050 Compare to Competition?
- Hard to find outside of MFS Supply: As we said above, the 26 letter functionality is hard to find. Our top competitors don't offer it at all. We've heard from our customers that they need it, and it's our mission to supply the products our customers need at the right place, right time
- Larger inside key storage: Our 3050 measures 45 cu cm, with the majority of the competition only offering 30 cu cm. This means our lockbox fits 13 house keys. The competition fits 6 house keys
- Double thick foam backing: Our 3050 features double the thickness in foam backing than the majority of the competition to protect to door
Where Does the 3050 Fit within MFS Supply's Lockbox Offering?
VaultLOCKS® 3000 series features smaller lockboxes with sturdy security features at a lower price point. The 3000 series is most popular with property preservation contractors and real estate agents. The 3050 is the same size as the other lockboxes in the 3000 series, but it differentiates itself with the two-letter tumblers to allow for hard-to-achieve alpha codes. The 3050 lockbox is most popular with property preservation contractors who have received 4-digit or other non-standard OCN codes from banks. Those codes are impossible to achieve on a standard alpha OCN lockbox. That's where the 3050 comes to the rescue.
How to Change a Lockbox Combination on any Model 3000 Series
Open the lockbox by simply dialing in the correct combination.
Note: All new lockboxes come preset to 0-0-0-0.
Once you dial in the correct code, place your hand on the shackle. With your other hand place your fingers on the sides of the lock box and open just like an oven door.
To reset the combination, you will need to find the reset pin which is located inside in the lock box. If your pin is equipped with a rubber boot, be sure to remove it before attempting to move the pin.
Slide the reset pin to the right and up.
Ensure your lock box is open when you reset the combination.
Dial in your new combination.
After you dial in your new combination slide the reset pin back to the left and down.
If your pin came equipped with a rubber boot, you will need to replace it once you have moved the pin back to its starting position. This will ensure the pin does not move.
To open the shackle simply slide the release lever and pull up on the shackle.
You are now ready to place your lock box on a door.
Once your lockbox is secure on the door remember to dial the combination to an alternate setting.
