Key override
If your electronic lock fails or you do not have any codes
available, you may use a key override to access this unit.
1. Remove the battery cover, disconnect and remove the
battery holder.
2. Insert the skeleton key (second set of keys provided)
into the key hole inside the opening for the battery.
3. Turn the key to the right.
4. Turn the four-bitted key to the right.
5. Open the door.

Just bough the sentry safe, opened it and it has NO combo number with it. How do I find out what the combo number is?


The combination is generally printed on the front of the owners manual along with the serial number and model number (sticker).

If you do not have the owners manual.. or managed to open the safe.. then lock the manual inside .. and did not register your product via their website..

Then you must contact Sentry and provide them with a notarized letter stating you are the owner.. the notary cannot have the same last name as the owner.. etc etc... all the specific requirements are listed on their website.

www.sentrysafe.com

Just clik on the Customer Care Button..and the Lost Your Combo Button to get the details.

If you registered the product..following these same instructions will allow you to log in and retrieve your combination.

Best of luck

Sentry safe v260 . have both keys but forgot the combination. how can i over write it?


If you have a "3 number combination" or have a "4 number combination you that you have NOT changed", you can send in your serial number in a notarized letter and $8 to: Sentry Group, Dept 200, 882 Linden Ave., Rochester, NY 14625-2784. (this info is in your Owners Manual under Lost Keys or Combination) If you don't have your Owners Manual you can download it from: http://www.sentrysafe.com/products/productDetail.aspx?s=130

If you have a "4 number combination" and you HAVE changed it from the original cobmination, the only solution you have is a locksmith.

Can't open sentry v260 safe


Make sure you are inserting key so the round hump on key matches red dot on lock, and turn key clockwise.

If that doesn't fix it, SentrySafe's support number is 1-800-828-1438.

I would think they can confirm the combination from your serial number. They probably won't give you the combination without a notarized letter, but if you have the right combination for that serial number safe, they may confirm that you are entering the right combination.

Be aware the 4 number combination V260's are changeable and if you HAVE changed it, you are on your own, they can't help you. The 3 number combinations are not changeable.

Sentry codes v260


You should have received two skeleton keys when you bought the safe. They will open the safe without the key AND without the code. If you don't have it, the only solution is to get help from Sentry. By following the instructions below, they will send you a skeleton key for your safe. First, find your safe’s Serial Number. The Serial Number is printed on the small label on the right side of safe (outside). Send this, a notarized letter(last name must be different) stating you are the safe’s owner, and a check or money order or $8.00 (U.S. funds) to:
Sentry Group Dept. 200
882 Linden Ave
Rochester, NY 14625-2784 If using a credit card (Visa/MasterCard only), call 1-800-828-1438.
