    My passports and all other papers are ruined b/c of severe mold totally covering all documents. I could clead the outer covers of the passports but the inside is paper. The velvet inside my jewelry box (also in the safe) molded also. Seems I can't keep anything of value in there.

Need more info, if safe is subject to cool and then hot you could be exposing it to condensation and moisture. If not then there is a product to dry it out. Buy a bucket of dessicant, or DRY RID and it will draw all of the moisture out of safe.

Desiccant moisture absorbing packs will help to absorb some of the excess humidity in the safe. In addition to the desiccant packs, we suggest that you open the safe at least once every two weeks for approximately 20 minutes. To alleviate some of the musty odor, we suggest that you remove the items from the safe and wipe the interior with a paste of baking soda and water. Do not store your safe unit in areas of your home or business with already high humidity levels such as a basement or cellar as this will add to the moisture problems. You can get desiccant packs from the following link: http://www.sentrysafeshop.com/Moisture-Control-Desiccant-Packets-p/desiccant%20pack.htm

Put in correct code shows error code so wont open. The override key is inside the safe. This dummy put it in there. I know the passcode is correct. Batteries are good.


ouch.... that key needs to be kept outside the safe. when you put in the known code are you pressing A or B after it. On my safe the code is entered followed by pressing the A or B key which was not part of the code.

My safe has an electronic lock.recently had to have batteries changed,battery case cracked,batteries not making connection. Please tell me what needs doing.


Try folding aluminum foil and putting it between the batteries. This will push the batteries tight and make good connection.

Combo for sentry safe 1310


Be prepared to wait! The customer service department was slow before Master Lock acquired Sentry Safe, now they are even worse. As a locksmith I've had the opportunity to work on a number of safes over the years and these are hardly worth what you pay for them other than the false sense of security you get from owning one. They are really only good for papers, but nothing of real value that you need to secure. There are some tutorials on Utube on opening these poorly made safes rather quickly, then go buy another throw away or a buy good safe that isn't so cheaply made.

LOST CODE ON SUPRA C LOCKBOX


I have just moved into a house that has a supra combination code key safe mounted on a wall outside the back door , it was put there by the first owner who died ,the second owner never used it and don't know the code,I just thought it would be handy to use as we are going away in June to France and its away of leaving a key in case the alarm goes off while away so a neighbour could deactivate it or the police so they don't have to brake down the door or if I get locked out I could have that key for emergencies so is there a way I could find the code for the safe please?

Mold in fire safes is common :(


Most likely, Due to possible dampness in your home collecting in the air tight small container would be the cause of mold. Or it could be humid in the safe that would result to mold because mold would grow in the small dark area. All you really have to do is clean the safe with lysol or some type of antibacteral cleaner..wouldent suggest water alone for obvous reason of it being the possible problem to start with.
Hope this helped.

Can not open safe, person who knew comb. recently passed away


Best bet is to get in a lock smith. He'll charge but they'll be able to open it with out damaging the safe. Other then that its an angle grinder job which will destroy it...
