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!

Lock on Sentry 2275 is broken


default_avatar.png If you can open the safe, unscrew the 2 screws on the inside of the plate covering the latch. The latch is only made of plastic and breaks easily. Once the plate is removed, you can put a screw in where the latch used to be, recover the latch with the faceplate and you should be able to use this again. Good luck!

How do you lock it?


Hi Celsa,

Please follow the below instructions to unlock and lock depending on the series of sentry fire safe security you have.

H & F Series:

To unlock and open:
1. Insert key in lock and turn counterclockwise.
2. Apply downward pressure on top of the safe, while
pushing the latch in to release.

NOTE: Due to compression of the gasket, the
unit will require slightly more force
than a safe that does not have a gasket.

To close and lock:

1. Close and press down on lid to engage latch.
Safe can now be transported without locking it.
2. Insert key in lock and turn clockwise.

HD & FD Series:

To unlock and open:
1. Insert key in lock and turn clockwise.
2. Pull up from bottom
of latch while pushing
down on lid to release.

NOTE: Due to compression of the gasket, the
unit will require slightly more force
than a safe that does not have a gasket.

To close and lock:
1. Close and while pushing down on the lid, press down on
the latch until it is secure.
2. Insert key in lock and turn counterclockwise.

Hope this helps.

I just bought a new Sentry Safe Model H4300 and I can't get it open. Dumbest thing I ever bought. Can you help


The latching mechanism looks like a hook. Either the hinges were installed from the factory mis-aligned, or the latching mechanism needs adjustment.
If you need to, stand on it and get the safe open.
Once it is open look for some screws or bolts at the latch striker that will allow you to make adjustments.
Move it further away from the "hook" to make it easier to unlock.
It should not be as difficult as you describe. You should not need to press down when locking or unlocking. There is an alignment problem somewhere.

If it is brand new - you should be able to return it for a working unit.

Safe SENTRY S3877 can not open the door


The door lock could be jammed try shacking briskly to losen lid and latch! akso it may have reset itself and the combo is no good no more and back to the origanal setting it had when you bought it ! ( if its a 911 you can put a screwdriver in where key goes and turn hard counter clockwise)
Good Luck!

I have a Sentry Safe H4300. I put a few important papers in it, but am unable to open it again to put more papers in it. Please Help! Thank you. Ruth Jackson


I have a H4300 Safe. To open the safe...

1) Unlock it with the tubular key
2) With one hand, push down on the lid (moderate pressure should do & preferably close to the latch area).
3) While still pushing down with one hand, use the other hand to squeeze the red latch button and lift up.

You can't open the lid by just squeezing the red latch button and trying to lift up. It won't. You need to push down, then unlatch, then lift.

Works everytime for me,...hope this helps.

Sentry H4100 file safe


There is a lock and there is a latch.
You can latch the safe without locking it and unlocking it does not unlatch it.

After you unlock it, then you must press up on the spring loaded latch while (this important) pressing down on the cover to releast the pressure on the latch hook, allowing it to move out of the way. After the latching hook is out of the way, you can release the pressure on the lid and it will open. You can't see the latch hook as it drops down from the lid, into the front wall of the safe where it engages a post, but perhaps you can imagine what it looks like.

Mine will not unlatch, even though it is unlocked, unless I press down on the lid to give it clearance first. There is quite a bit of spring in the plastic that this safe is constructed out of. It works against you when you try to open it and close it.

I can take digital photos of the mechanism if this description does not help.
