I don’t have a combination, but the safe is open
Usually, such a situation happens when people move into a new house or office and suddenly discover that they are proud owners of a safe they never asked for. Some previous owner, not wanting to take the time or take on the expense, leaves the safe for you. Now you have an open safe in your possession. What to do? Well, if you want to use it for yourself all you need to do is set a new combination. The same thing can be the result in other situations like where you realize that you can’t remember the safe combination before locking your safe. That happens more often than you would think. In all these situations if your safe isn’t installed inside the floor or wall, bring it to us, and we will change the combination. If you can’t do that, no worries. We will provide you with professional safe locksmith services. However, if you’re determined to save the money, you can even attempt removing the door yourself and bringing it to us. However, keep in mind that you will have to install it back, which is not so simple.
Can I retrieve my safe combination?
There are some reliable methods to get the lost safe combination, but you will need professional help at some stage.
You can retrieve the original combination through a professional and licensed locksmith who has access to specialized sources of information. Usually, manufacturers don’t share this data over the phone due to security measures. Besides, if your safe was manufactured in China, there won’t be much success trying to get the information yourself and this method isn’t for you if your combination has been changed at least once.
Safes with electronic locks sometimes have master override codes. You need to provide a locksmith with a safe serial number to get this information retrieved. If successful, by using the code, you can reset the current combination. If everything goes successfully, you will open the safe using a default combination.
Emergency DIY safe lockout
You can always open your safe without professional help at least once. We’re speaking about drilling the lock open. You can consider extreme measures if you have an old and cheap safe that keeps failing. You will need a new safe in the end, but sometimes it’s the best option. This is a quick and cheap method, and locksmiths often apply it. But when does a safe quit being cheap and start to be expensive? Safe manufacturers and sellers consider all the safes that cost less than $400 cheap. However, you’re the one who decides whether your safe is cheap or not.
Can I open a safe using a stethoscope?
You can do such a thing but only in the movies. Typically, safes (even very cheap ones) have security measures that make them resistant. The only methods that work are either having a safe combination, a key, or by drilling to open it.
