Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Drill out the in the area in front of where the latching mechanism is, when drilling the hole use plenty of cutting oil and whatever you do go relatively slow with the drill rpm or you will burn up the drill bit you may want to purchase more than one drill bit for this job and when drilling use alot of pressure and less rotation speed the drill will cut better and last longer, don't go too slow however the last thing you want is to snap off the drill bit you may need to drill a number of holes in the area of the latch to compromise the latching mechanism enough to start the door to housing seam moving with a pry bar, use a dremel tool to enlarge the space between the door and the safe outer housing to accomidate the prybar tip, make the gap with the dremel large enough to easily fit the pry bar in far enough to get some leverage because drilling the latch alone wil not open the safeonce it is open enough take some large screwdrivers and wedge them in around the smaller spaces (have an assistant hold pressure to hold the door open) to expose whats left of the internal latch if you can get the dremel cutt-off blade in ther use it on the latch if not purchase a small hack saw that allows the blade to extend out and use it to get in and cut latching mechanism.
good luck i wish you the best
