I did this on my own safe. Different brand but you can try. Somewhere on the door , look for a latch or pin or rod that you can push in.These are usually triggers that allow the lock to turn only when the door is closed. Somehow, you have locked it with the door open (as I did). Press in any of these and try turning the lock. It will be tricked into thinking the door is closed and allow you to turn the key. 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.
