How Do I Change My Smoke Alarm Battery?


  • There are many different designs of smoke alarms, all with different ways to remove the head from the base. 
  • The most common ways to remove the head from the base is:
    • Push button to drop down
    • Slide to remove base (in the direction of the arrow)
    • Twist to remove from the base
  • You will require a 9V smoke detector battery (the rectangle type).
  • Check the expiry date while changing the battery and push the test button to test the sounder is operational while you are up there.
