Can’t Get Your Safe Open Or You’ve Forgotten the Combination?

images of safe work we've done

Here’s a look at some of our recent safe jobs (L to R): a dial combination lock we disassembled, cleaned, and reinstalled; a large built-in safe we opened when the combination was lost; and a floor safe we reset the combination on.

In the unfortunate event you get locked out of your safe, don’t try to solve the problem on your own. Doing so could lead to permanent damage to the safe or your valuables. Our locksmiths are trained to gain entry to a safe using the most efficient methods:

Manipulating the Safe

This is our preferred method for opening your gun safe. While this method takes a little longer than other methods, it will result in no damage to your safe or valuables. We will determine that the unlocking process is on the right track by listening for the sound that is made when the driver pin hits the notch on the flywheel. Once that sound is identified, we’ll be able to manipulate the safe and open it.

Drilling the Safe

We can drill the safe to open it. This method is a lot faster than manipulation, but it does cause some minor cosmetic damage. A small hole is drilled into the lock and an instrument is inserted into the drilled hole so we can see how the lock works to open the safe. Many safes these days come with added security that makes bypassing the lock much more difficult which means this method is not always the best option to open the safe.

Scoping the Safe

If we are aware that there are additional security measures in place, then we will opt to scope the safe. This method is very similar to drilling the safe with the only difference being the use of a borescope which is inserted into a small hole to allow us to see the internal makeup of the lock. We’ll be able to scope out the security measures and work to bypass them as triggering them could cause damage to the safe.

Cutting or Prying the Safe Open

If all other methods fail, the last resort is to cut or pry the safe open. We will only use this method if all else fails because it causes permanent and irreversible damage to the safe. Our locksmiths will simply cut or pry the lock open.
