Question about Sentry Fireproof Safe

1 Answer

I cannot get a new Sentry safe to open. It is model HO100 and no matter how I apply preesure to the top and squeeze the handle, there is no response. Is this common with this model or am I doing something wrong?

What I did with mine is took my sawzall to it out of sheer pisstivity. It cut right through the locking bar and rendered the safe virtually unusable. But man did I feel so much better knowing that I beat the safe. Or you could take it back to the store you bought it from.

My children locked a brand new safe some years ago and I need the code to open it . NEVER BEEN USED.


Yes if it is a Sentry safe. Other makes have a similar service. That type you can sometimes open by hitting the top with the heel of hand and turning the handle at the right time. There is a video showing how to do it. Here is the video

Sentry Model 1610 Won't Open


I have a different model but I had the same problem. Called customer service and they had me push up on the handle and enter the code. That didn't work but then they had me tap the safe with a rubber mallet 5 times above the panel and 5 times to the right of the panel. That worked for me. Hope one of those works.
