All you have to do is find your owners manual the sentry safe combination was posted in. Unless you locked it the safe as happens all the time. After all that is the safest place for it right. Or you can just call a locksmith service tech

SOURCE: know combination, but cannot open sentry safe 1250

Make sure you are working the dial properly for this type of safe. With the door lever fully counter clockwise, turn the dial clockwise a couple turns to start. It should turn quietly. Then turn the dial counterclockwise (LEFT) to the first number in the combination. Now turn the dial clockwise (RIGHT) a full turn passing the first number again, and additionally clockwise to the second number. Then turn the dial counter clockwise from the second number directly to the third number. Try to open with a sharp movement of the door lever clockwise. If this does not work the first time try adding or subtracting ONE to each number in the combination in case the mechanism is worn. If it still does not work it is time for a drill and a power saw to cut the thing open!

I have a sentry s0410. I have lost the key and combination - how do I open the safe?


Sledge Hammer :)

Side note: In all sentry documentation it clearly states that if you lock your posessions in the safe and lose the key/combination, there is no master key or combo that will open your safe. You could try to write the good people at sentry but I haven't heard a success story from that yet.
My advice would be to befriend a firefighter and somehow convince him to let you borrow the jaws of life. Or get a hold of some explosives.

Good luck to you.

Hi.

If you have lost the combination you need to follow detailed procedure needed to retrieve the key from Sentry. For security reasons there is no other way to get a master combo.

Please follow the instructions detailed in this link.

Hi.


The only way of opening a sentry safe is by using a registered combo, or by contacting Sentry. There is no other simple and non destructive way to open a Sentry.

See here: Sentry respects strong security standards. There is no simple way of hacking a safe if you loos.

Safe SENTRY S3877 can not open the door


The door lock could be jammed try shacking briskly to losen lid and latch! akso it may have reset itself and the combo is no good no more and back to the origanal setting it had when you bought it ! ( if its a 911 you can put a screwdriver in where key goes and turn hard counter clockwise)
Good Luck!
