Question about Home Security

Open Question

Have a brinks home safe model, 5073 and forgot how to reset the code, I've been using the key for years, finally replaced the batteries but have no instructions on how to "reset" the code. Please

Don't know how to reset the code, it's digital and I've been using the key, will I be able to change the code and what do I push after I enter the code to open it and again to close it? Thank you.

"I bought a used Sentry Safe at a garage sale"

"I bought a business and it came with a Sentry Safe that is locked"

Help!

We get these requests everyday. Unfortunately, eventhough Office1000.com sells many Sentry Safe products, we don't have combinations for any of them. There is a quick and easy answer. It can be found on Sentry's webpage and we have reprinted here it for your convenience (though of course the details may be changed at anytime):

Lost combination:
First, find your safe’s Model and Serial Number.
The Serial Number is in this packet, and is also printedon the small label beside the door hinge (outside). Send a copyof this, a notarized letter (last name must be different than that of owner) stating you are the safe’s owner, and a check or money order for $12.00* (U.S. funds) to: Sentry Group, Dept. 200,
882 Linden Avenue,
Rochester, NY 14625-2784 USA.
If using a credit card (Visa/Mastercard only), call 1-800-828-1438
and fax your Model and Serial number with the notarized letter
to 585-381-2940.
That's it. It's simple.

We can't offer any further assistance on lost combinations or products not purchased from Office1000.com

If you made a purchase from Office1000.com (a Sentry Safe or anything else) and you need help, please use our customer service form and include your order number

SOURCE: how to unlock a cathedral electronic safe ea25

After opening the electronic safe (with the pre-set factory code of 159B) locate the small red button on the
inside of the door near the hinge.

2. Press the red button and then release it, you will hear a beep. DO NOT SHUT THE DOOR UNTIL YOU HAVE CONFIRMED THAT YOUR NEW SECURITY CODE HAS BEEN ENTERED CORRECTLY.
3. With the door open, enter your own personal security code, which can be 3- 8 digits long, and confirm your new code by pressing the letter “B” on the electronic touch pad. Before you close the door, try the new security code to make sure the lock release the knob so you can turn it and retract the live action locking bolts.
If the code fails, go through steps 1-3 again. If the code works successfully, then you should lock the safe. When you open the safe in the future enter the security code you have set followed by the letter “B” and turn the knob.

If the incorrect security code is entered 3 times you will have an automatic lockout for 20 seconds before you can try your code again. If the incorrect security code is entered 3 additional times there will be a 5- minute lockout before the code can be tried again.

BATTERY REPLACEMENT
This safe uses 4- AA batteries. Under normal use, batteries will last about 1 year. When the battery is low, a red light will come on warning you that the battery is low. To test the batteries, enter your security code. If the batteries are low the red light located in the middle of the top of the keypad will start to flash.

To replace the batteries, open the safe door with your security code and turn the knob. Push the batteries cover plate, which is located on the back of the door, and replace the old batteries.

YOU MUST PROGRAME YOUR SECURITY CODE AFTER YOU REPLACE THE BATTERIES. SEE STEPS 1- 3 UNDER “ENTERING YOUR SECURITY CODE”.
TROUBLE KEY
A “Trouble key” has been provided in case you forget or lose your security code. Remove the small central panel from the front of the faceplate. Insert the key and turn it counter clockwise. Then turn the knob on the door towards the right. This will manually open your safe. If you lose your key, you may purchase a replacement key by referencing the serial number located under the central panel by the lock.
MAINTENANCE FOR KEY AND ELECTRONIC SAFE
If the door of the safe starts to rub on the door frame, open the door per the instructions above. By the door hinges you will find a threaded stem. Use an Allen wrench to tighten the threaded stem. This will help realign the door and give you trouble free access to the contents of your safe.

Brinks Home Security Safes


i think with this kind of safe it comes with 2 keys, one which requires the code to be entered, and a master key that will unlock without requiring the code.

if you have the master key, just use that.

after you have opened the door you can reset the code by pressing the reset button (a pin / paperclip required to press)
on the back of the door.

I need to reet my brinks home security safe model 5073


If all that fails, you can break in by drilling a small hole in the door 4" up and 10" over to access the electronic solenoid lock. Then bend a wire to the radius of a 50 cent piece. Slowly put in the hole with point down and wiggle the handle as you go. Presto!

Just a note that after seeing the guts, it would be possible to drop the safe and pop the handle on impact. The spring holding the lock up is real weak and the inertia may allow the release if timed correctly.

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.

Hi, I have a Brink's Safe model #5059. Actually it was my husbands and he just passed away. Unfortunately, I don't know where the key or the combination. I need to get a key to open this. Can you...


Brinks will not help you with this, but you should be able to get into the safe if you call a locksmith. Brinks use a really cheap lock tumbler on models similar to yours and it's easy to pick for a skilled locksmith. So easy, in fact, that you really won't want to use that safe again as it's really an unsafe...

I have a Brinks home safe model 5074. The combination no longer works, and the batteries are still good. The combination worked just last week. I do not have the keys. Any ideas?


I have a Brinks model 5074. I did the notarized statement to Action and they sent me a set of keys to open the safe. However, I also asked for the instructions on the sequence to set the electronic key pad. Obviously, they didn't send the ops instructions and it's a holiday weekend. Can you provide the insturctions?

I have a brinks home security safe model 5059 key 3206


I'm pursuing a solution to the same problem. So far, I'm told that Brinks safes are made by Honeywell/Sisco. Call 1-800-832-5834 for customer service. They will play you a recording that will tell you what you need to do to get a replacement key ($7.95 - $10.95)
