How to use range access FOBs

The Kaitoke Range Complex is secured by two security gates, both controlled by digital locks. Touching your access FOB to the bottom of the lock will unlock it. Then you twist the bottom part of the lock to release it. Don't forget to close and lock the gate once you have gone through it. All security gates must remain locked at all times unless authorized by the Range Manager.

Returning the FOBs

If you have not renewed your membership, please return your FOB to the club. You can drop it off on a club night or post it to our PO box:

NZDA Hutt Valley Branch INC.

Loaning of access FOBs

The loaning of access FOBs to non-members is not permitted as the range is a private facility and requires users to be financial club members, comply with club rules, be fully conversant with the current Range Standing Orders and complete the Kaitoke Range Safety Course. Those caught loaning may have their FOBs deactivated, membership revoked or ultimately reported to the police.
