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

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!

You are supposed to apply downward pressure on the lid when you try to open it. See if that solves your problem.

Can't open sentry v260 safe


Make sure you are inserting key so the round hump on key matches red dot on lock, and turn key clockwise.

If that doesn't fix it, SentrySafe's support number is 1-800-828-1438.

I would think they can confirm the combination from your serial number. They probably won't give you the combination without a notarized letter, but if you have the right combination for that serial number safe, they may confirm that you are entering the right combination.

Be aware the 4 number combination V260's are changeable and if you HAVE changed it, you are on your own, they can't help you. The 3 number combinations are not changeable.
