I knew my code but I forgot how to turn left or right for the the fisrt strat.For sample my code are 2,5,10,30. How can I do ? thanks sone


turn left at least 3 times stoping on the 2
turn right 2 times stopping on the 5
then left to the 10 then right to the 30
then left to the 0

Try variations of these steps, some lock on the 0 at the end.
Some lock on the last #.
90 % of all safes start with as many turns as you want to, turning left counter clockwise.
Most are only 3 #'s if it has 4 then that is the last stop # and 0 is not used. (marketing makes it seem more secure with 4 #'s but it is still only 3)
If the safe truly uses 4 #'s then a 0 at the end it is a real good safe and call a locksmith to try, if this does not work.
Don't drill it if it is a high dollar safe just call a better locksmith. Don't fall for the biggest add in the phone book trick. A good locksmith could never afford a add that big and offer you a fair price. Hope this info helps---Ya

Family member passed away and left numbers behind...but we dont know how to open the safe. Its a Sentry 1250 Model # 1963131


Begin by turning the knob in a complete circle a few times. Then, turn the dial to the LEFT to the first number of the combination, then RIGHT to the second number, and back to the LEFT to the final number. If the safe has more than three numbers, just keep alternating, starting by turning the knob left, then right, and so on. I am sorry for your loss, and I hope this post has helped you. Sincerely, Der Strom
