A1 locksmith will tell you.
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.

Family member passed away and left numbers behind...but we dont know how to open the safe. Its a Sentry 1250 Model # 1963131


Begin by turning the knob in a complete circle a few times. Then, turn the dial to the LEFT to the first number of the combination, then RIGHT to the second number, and back to the LEFT to the final number. If the safe has more than three numbers, just keep alternating, starting by turning the knob left, then right, and so on. I am sorry for your loss, and I hope this post has helped you. Sincerely, Der Strom

Know combination, but cannot open sentry safe 1250


If you know the combination:

1) Turn the dial to the left a few complete rounds, then stop on 1st number.
2) Turning the dial to the right, pass up the 2nd number once, then stop on it on the next round.
3) Turn the dial to the left directly to the 3rd number then stop.

The handle should open now.

I can't seem to unlock my safe Sentry 1250.


Also make sure you are executing the combination in the right steps... For mine (a three-number combo), these are the steps that work:

* turn the knob to the LEFT, pass 0 at least THREE times and stop at the first combo number
* turn the knob to the RIGHT, pass 0 ONCE and stop at the second comb number
* turn the knob to the LEFT and go directly to the third combo number (do not pass 0, do not collect $200)
