Question about Sentry Fireproof Safe

1 Answer

Have a Sentry S0409, haven't opened in a long time. It has a key and combination you have to use both to open. I know the combo, but when I put the combo in it won't open. Is the combo suppose to be put in like most combinations, i.e. left to right, pass the second number once, that sort of thing? I think I have tried every combination of ways, but nothing seems to open it. Is it possible to have a corrosion problem that would keep it from opening?

I have lost my sentry safe key or combo


<span>Hi.<br /> <br />Sentry respects strong security standards. There is no simple way of hacking a safe if you loose the combo. If there was a simple way of opening a Sentry safe, Sentry would withdraw the model from the market.<br /> <br />When you own a Sentry safe you are supposed to register the combination in Sentry website. The combination will be held as encrypted data in Sentry server. After registration you get an user name and password that will allow recovering the combination.<br /> <br /></span><span>If you have already <a href="https://www.sentrysafe.com/CustomerCare/Store_Combination">registered</a> and need your combination now, <a href="https://www.sentrysafe.com/CustomerCare/Lost_Your_Combination">you can recover your combination clicking here</a>.</span><br /><span><br />Most owners are not aware and do not register the combination.<br /> <br />If you have not registered the combination, then for security reasons you will be asked to send Sentry request your combination from the Customer Care team. The request must be accompained by a notarized letter stating you are the owner of the safe (form must be downloaded from website). The document can be obtained from any local Notary Public office.<br />You will also be required to pay Sentry $20, that is what Sentry will pay to verify with double check your identity.<br /> <br /></span><span><a href="https://www.sentrysafe.com/CustomerCare/Lost_Your_Combination#">Page is the same published before, at the bottom the button to open Notary public form template.</a></span><br /><span><br />I know that the procedure is annoying, but that is the only way to get a lost combo. Sentry care to protect owners property and safety and security concerns impose use of this procedure.<br /> <br />Other useful links:<br /> <br /></span><span><a href="https://www.sentrysafe.com/ContactUs/Call_Or_Email_Us">Call or Email Sentry</a></span><br /><span><br />International websites:<br /> <br /></span><span><ul><li><a href="http://www.sentrysafe.co.uk/">United Kingdom</a></li><li><a href="http://www.sentryjp.com/">Japan</a></li></ul></span><span><br />Here US customer care number: 800-828-1438.<br /><br />Ginko.<br /></span>

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

I have a sentry s0410. I have lost the key and combination - how do I open the safe?


Sledge Hammer :)

Side note: In all sentry documentation it clearly states that if you lock your posessions in the safe and lose the key/combination, there is no master key or combo that will open your safe. You could try to write the good people at sentry but I haven't heard a success story from that yet.
My advice would be to befriend a firefighter and somehow convince him to let you borrow the jaws of life. Or get a hold of some explosives.

Good luck to you.
