SOURCE: Sentry Safe (DSW3607 Model) Won't Open

I finally ignored the poorly-written instructions for programming a personal code and simply entered the factory code first and then pressed the prog/enter code button.  The safe opened.  The instructions tell you to push the prog/enter code first and then enter the factory code or personal code to open the safe.  Wrong!  Do it my way should this problem happen to you.

SOURCE: I can't open my Sentry Safe (model #2100)

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!

SOURCE: The Sentry V260 safe will not open. Replace batteries?

Locksmiths agree on how to install sentry safe batteries
slide open the battery cover located just below the keypad.
Insert a paper clip or pen point into the small hole in the cover. Push in while sliding cover to the right. Disconnect and remove the battery holder. Insert the 4-batteries as indicated.
reconnect the connector and put back the battery holder. Slide the cover back in place. How do I insert the batteries on my advanced electronic lock safe? On the newer model Fireproof Sentry Safes my locksmith recommended me To install batteries,
turn the electronic lock case to the right and remove. Insert four new batteries as indicated, replace the electronic lock case and turn to the left to reassemble.

How to open sentry valueguard safe 1330 1744403

I do not claim to be an expert, however I recently opened a valueguard 1330 that had been sitting at work abandoned and forgotten for sometime. I used simple hand tools for this, this method is crude but it worked. The underside of the safe has a plug in it which is where the factory fills the safe with an insulation that sets and hardens giving structure and weight. I imagine there is a better way to remove the insulation but at this time i used a hammer. It looks much the same as chalk with a harder consistency, a minute or two of hammering broke up most of it which was then cleared out by hand. underneath is a plastic liner and the inner floor of the safe. Once again I just had hand tools at the time, I used a hammer and punch to perforate the steel in a circular pattern. once this was finished a few solid strikes should be enough to bust through. Please keep in mind a drill would have been optimal, also the hole needs to be large enough for you to put you arm in. On the inside portion of the door there is a cover over the lock assembly held in by one screw, on this safe it was a combination flat head 1/4" drive screw. With the cover plate removed you should now be able to see three plates on a central axis, each plate has a slot that needs to alined with the lock assembly for it to travel. This is incredibly easy when working by feel alone. With all three alined you should be able to turn the handle on the outside counter clockwise and open your safe. I hope this helps anyone not wanting to pay a locksmith or sentry, your safe should still be viable except for the arm sized hole. I would suggest a new safe. Enjoy!

Locksmiths advise If your safe doesn't have a key, skip Step 3.
Turn the dial to zero.
Insert your sentry safe key and turn it until the plunger pops out.
Turn the dial to the left (counterclockwise) three times to the first number of the combination (pass the first number of your combination two times, stopping on it the third time).
Turn the dial to the right (clockwise) two times to the second number of the combination (pass your second number once, stopping on it the second time).
Turn the dial to the left to the last number (stop the first time on your last number).
Pull the handle down; cracking sentry safe open.

To retrieve your lost sentry fireproof safe combination. First, find your safe's Model and Serial Number. The Serial Number is printed on the small label on the right side of safe (on paper tag near hinge) or under handle. As this information is confidential a valid credit card and email is needed to verify a customers name and address
sentry safe combination archives searches. Do come with a service charge although it's definitely cheaper then buying a new home electronic sentry fireproof safe.
good locksmith should be able to help you with the dialing programming instructions and lost Sentry Safe Key Replacements
