Product Overview

Designed for compatibility with leading smoke alarm brands, the easichange removal tool is the ideal solution for replacing mains-powered smoke and heat alarms at the end of their life without the need for calling in an electrician. Featuring a dual-headed screwdriver the easichange tool inserts into the side of an alarm to release the clasps, allowing the head to be removed from the base ready for a new alarm to click into place. A ballpoint pen is conveniently located at the opposite end of the easichange tool for noting the new alarm's date of installation, either on the alarm itself or in the alarm's manual.

Please note: Mains power to the alarm must be turned off before removing the alarm head. Ensure that the base plates are compatible before purchasing a replacement alarm.

Instructions

Below is a general guide to using the easichange tool for replacing compatible mains-powered alarms. Please check the original installation instructions for your alarm to ensure the correct method of removal.

The image thumbnails can be clicked to load the full-sized versions.

1. Disconnect Mains Power

Before the existing alarm is removed mains power must be disconnected. Look on your mains distribution board for a switch marked "Smoke Alarms" or similar and switch this off. If there isn't a switched marked with a recognisable label then switch the entire mains power off, though you should be aware this will cut power to everything in the house including the lights.

2. Locate Removal Slot

Locate the directional arrow on the front face of the alarm, the removal slot is located directly above the arrow.

3. Insert Easichange Tool

Insert the easichange removal tool approx. 1cm into the alarm's removal slot and lever it down gently.

4. Slide The Alarm Away

With the removal tool still inserted, slide the lower half of the alarm away from the removal tool in the direction of the arrow on the cover.

5. Remove The Alarm

Remove the alarm from the base by moving it vertically towards the floor. Some alarms may pivot on a hinge rather than pull straight downwards.

6. Attach The New Alarm

Place the alarm on the base, slightly offset from the centre and slide in the opposite direction to the arrow on the cover until it "clicks" into place.

7. Reconnect Mains Power

After the new alarm has been attached to the base plate, reconnect the mains power supply.

8. Ensure The New Alarm Works

Once the new alarm has been connected and the mains power has been restored it is important to check the indicating lights. Mains-powered alarms should have a solid green light to show they are receiving mains power, and often a flashing red light to indicate the unit is working. If the lights are okay, press and hold the test button for 10 seconds; the alarm should sound loudly. If there are other alarms in the house these should also sound within 10 seconds of the test button being pressed.
