1. Open the lock with the factory preset combination of 0005.
2. Find the tab on the end of the part of the locking mechanism that has the numbers.
Combination Reset Tab
3. Flip the tab up (with the combination set to the open combination). When you flip the tab up, you disengage the number dials from the tumblers, so that you can reset the combination without changing the position of the tumblers.
4. Change the combination to the desired combination.
5. Flip the tab back down. The dials are now re-engaged with the tumblers.
Hi, by reset, do you mean you have the combination but want to change it? If so, then you need the special combination change key that came with the safe and the instruction manual (there are copies of the manual online if you don't have that)
If the door is open, but you don't have the combination, there is a technique for finding the combination.
These sentry safes dial combinations are not built to be changed as they have no key change hole. Switching the order of the tumblers could be done by a trained locksmith. I would suggest buying the electronic sentry safes as these safes can be reprogramed.
FOR YOUR SECURITY THE COMBINATION MUST BE CHANGED WHEN THE LOCK IS INSTALLED. The door must be open. On models with the passage feature, make sure the passage feature is disengaged: turn knob or key should be in vertical position (A) (see figure 14-1). 1. Insert the DF-59 control key (B) into the combination change plug assembly (C) and unscrew the cylinder by turning the key counterclockwise. Remove the combination change plug to gain access to the combination change sleeve (see figure 14-1). 2. Turn the outside knob once clockwise (all the way, until it stops) then release. The latch should not retract (see figure 14-4). 3. Enter the existing combination. On new installations, use the factory-set combination: depress 2 and 4 simultaneously, (release), then 3 (release). You should feel a slight click as each button is depressed. 4. Insert the spanner wrench as shown in Figure 14-2 to engage the combination change sleeve (A). Gently turn the spanner wrench clockwise to the stop position (a slight click should be felt), then turn the spanner wrench counterclockwise to the stop position (A) (see figure 14-3). Remove the spanner wrench. 5. Turn the outside knob once clockwise all the way until it stops, then release. The latch should not retract (see figure 14-4). 6. Choose your new combination, write it on page 26, then enter the new combination — depress buttons care-fully (a slight click should be felt as
