There is no "default code", but they do keep the serial number and code on file, for just this purpose.

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!

A1 locksmith say's 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 sentry safe open.

SOURCE: I can't open my Sentry Safe (model #2100)

The problem is in the latch so one solution is to sit on the box, squeeze the latch and it opens. Voila!! Stupid R&D!

S0409 lost combination


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

Need the factory code for sentry safe model s3877


the only way into my 5073 model was to drill a small hole 4 inches up and 10 inches from the right edge. then curve a small wire round the size of a fifty cent piece. Inside the safe is a spring loaded lock that this will depress. Presto-

After having done that, the will be inside.

The key is located under the round medallion on the front. It pops off and a round style key fits in there. If it is a brinks, they will send you one.

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

My Sentry safe MS0100 combination dial will not turn. I can open the door but can not turn the dial to lock it.


If the safe is brand new.. you must first remove the locking screw at the base of the combination lock dial lockcase.. discard the screw.. Make sure you have the owners manual with the sticker and default lock code nearby before locking the safe.

The factory has a preset combination code that cannot be deleted. It is on the owners manual. You can use that code if your codes have become compromised.

Also ensure the batteries are fresh. This may also be the problem.

Anything beyond this will require assistance from Sentry. Your serial number is on the side of the door. Have that ready.
