Recharge your Kabuto®
First time registration :
When you have received your new suitcase, no fingerprint is recorded in the Memory, any finger will open it until you have recorded one. To record the first fingerprint:
- Place one finger on the sensor to Wake up the system,
- Press the button next to the sensor and hold it down for 2 seconds. The LED will lit yellow quickly,
- Place one finger on the sensor for scanning. The LED lits up blue then green when the scan is completed,
- Remove the finger, the LED flashes again.
- You have to scan the same finger 4 times in succession to record a full fingerprint, until the LED changes to solid blue.
Your fingerprint is saved and will be the only one that can open the bag, it is the master fingerprint that allows to register any additional fingerprint.
Further fingerprint registration registration
You can record up to 10 different fingerprints. To record a second fingerprint – and any additional one – you have to activate the system with the master fingerprint.
- Then quickly press the button next to the sensor and hold it for 2 seconds, until the green LED flashes rapidly.
- Repeat the registration steps as explained above for the first registration
You can record more fingerprints by first opening the lock with any registered finger first, then follow the above procedure.
When the zippers pullers are inserted in the lock, the suitcase is automatically closed. To reopen your Kabuto®, simply place your finger on the sensor (or open it with the key provided). If a fingerprint is not recognized the LED will change from green to red. Try again with a finger already memorized.
Should the lock remain dead when you touch it – no light, no sound – you may follow this step:
- Use a USB C cable that you plug into a USB charger. It is important to use a charger plugged in the main, not a battery. This should reactivate the lock.
- Let it charge for 30’ before unplugging.
As you can remove the Power Bank, you may wonder how to remove the tiny battery of the lock? Actually it is so little than it can stay in the suitcase. Also it is not visible by the security scanner.
Expanding your suitcase
Simply undo the zipper that goes around the lower section of the suitcase; Pull the telescopic handle to its maximum.
Expand your Kabuto® by holding the telescopic handle with one hand, then with the other hand pull the top handle.
