Mechanical Override

Concealed behind a metal plate, the cylinders are customized to each property with a unique pinning code. Unlike skeleton keys, the high security mechanical override cannot be easily copied and additional keys are only available from the manufacturer with proper authority. The lock is virtually pick proof and cannot be bumped.

Deliver peace of mind by contacting Safemark, the hospitality industry’s dominant provider of in-room safes. Our security experts will help determine the best safe models for your facility. Depending on the safe model, we utilize three different technologies for mechanical overrides.



“In my 30-year career in the hospitality security industry I have used a wide variety of guest room safes. My current property decided to budget new guest room safes in 2005. After extensive research I kept coming back to Safemark Systems as the leader in the security industry. Safemark’s products, support and service are superior to their competition. The extensive audit trail that Safemark provides along with the EHO (Emergency Handheld Override) is easy for staff members to navigate and operate. While all of the other vendors I researched provided an audit trail, Safemark’s audit trail was able to record the full identity, date, time and how the safe was opened. The safes are very simple to troubleshoot and Safemark always provides me with timely support. The hard key override is an absolute must and the fact that they key way is protected and property specific is vital for our security mission. My current property still utilizes their products even after our most recent renovation. Whether I am an end user or a consultant, when the question is safes, the answer is always Safemark.”
