SOURCE: Changing the combination

These sentry safes dial combinations are not built to be changed as they have no key change hole. Switching the order of the tumblers could be done by a trained locksmith. I would suggest buying the electronic sentry safes as these safes can be reprogramed.

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!

SOURCE: how do you open a sentry 1250 combination safe? I have the number

Locksmiths agree If your safe doesn't have a key, skip Step 3.
Turn the dial to zero.
Insert your sentry safe key and turn it until the plunger pops out.
Turn the dial to the left (counterclockwise) three times to the first number of the combination (pass the first number of your combination two times, stopping on it the third time).
Turn the dial to the right (clockwise) two times to the second number of the combination (pass your second number once, stopping on it the second time).
Turn the dial to the left to the last number (stop the first time on your last number).
Pull the handle down; cracking the Fireproof Sentry Safe open.

How to open a 2087d Honeywell safe if you lost the battery backup


Honeywell no longer sells the battery back up! I made my own by putting 4 AA Batteries in a series, found a USB cable that matches the plug on the safe door and cut the USB end off the wire. Strip the two wires Red and Black and put the red on the positive side and black on negative side plug it into the safe and put the combo in then turn the handle and open the safe. You can make a battery by going to an electronic store and tell them what you are looking for or if you have a toy at home that has 4 AA batteries you can wire it into that Temporarily open your safe and give the toy back to your kids. LOL
