SOURCE: 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.

My husband has passed and all of our insurance, house deeds and other important papers r in the safe. the x105. He handled things like that. but i must get to the life ins papers. I dont know where the key...

There is no override code. But maybe a override key the normal key is to open the bolt after the correct code is entered.
Cracked or drilled.
Call a locksmith to help.
Don't fall for the biggest add in the phone book a good locksmith could never afford a full page add and offer a good price.

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.
