If the door is opened..Then you would need to remove the cover to the lock at the back..You will see a screw on the last wheel of the lock..Move that screw into a different hole on the wheel..Then you can dial the wheels to the lever..Each wheel is a number..This will give you a new combination..My advice to you would be to locate a Safe Tech/Locksmith..Have them do it for you..

Yes you can change the combination but if you get it wrong you will be locked out of the safe
Safer for you to get a locksmith/safe technician to do it for you

How do I change a combination on a liberty centurion safe


any locksmith can help you on this... you don't say what safe you have so I'm thinking a gun safe.... safe should be in the open position and you need to know the present combo. and you will need ownership papers. if you don't have prove you owe then call us.

Forgot my safe combtion


If it's a sentry safe.."For you and your safe's security, you'll need a Notarized Statement of Ownership. The statement of ownership did not come with your safe and is an added security measure. The statement is an official document that proves you own the safe and is notarized by a licensed Notary." ..deal with Sentry for this procedure.
If it's a brand name gun safe etc, .purchased through a lock shop..likely only the original combination may be recorded..nothing if you've changed it since then.
some safe's have a code label..that can be used to get the combination from the manufacturer once you prove ownership.
if there are extreme valuables inside it can be opened by a safe specialist and/or locksmith.

How do I get the combo for my safe I have the keys.


I can only give you a very basic answer as you provided NO information on the make and model of your safe. First, some safes allow you to change the combination with the safe open so if you have the keys ...no problem. Some on the other hand require you to know the combo to change the old one like passwords, especially if it is one that allows changes from a factory setting. The best advice is that you should contact the manufacturer on changing the combination, since you have the keys with the key number it should suffice to prove you already have access so they can help you without the required written proof of ownership required to open the safe.

How do I change combination?


You may have to contact manufacturer. Some safes do not change. If you need to find combo for Sentry safe you'll find a sticker with numbers by the hinge. You'll need to send ownership affidavit (from their website) with this number and a fee and they'll send you the combo code for this unit.

Hello firma....Your best bet is to call your local locksmith. Show him proof that this is indeed your residence and ask him to open the safe and change the combination to one of your liking. Make sure you nail down the fee in advance. Don't be afraid to offer him 80% of his asking price. Also, ask if he can incorporate your home with another trip to the neighborhood for a reduced rate.

p.s. aren't your dying to open that up!!! : ^ )

I have a Sentry safe S5741. I have the electronic combo and the key. The door to the safe was locked with the door open. Now the door will not unlock to shut the door. Is there trip to reset the door? Is...


Try changing the batteries first. No the electronic combo would not be erased unless someone previously changed the combination. There is probably something causing the bolts to not retract. The lock may fail if there is any pressure on the bolts and or the door of the safe. Hopefully this information helps.

I forgot my combination i tried putting a couple different numbers in after three trys the key pad locked and now when i type any numbers in it doesnt work. how do i unlock my safe?


after 3 trys the keypad does go into lockout mode but it should only last for about 15 minutes and then let you retry 3 more codes to try and open. if you still do not know what the combo is you can usually call the maker of the safe and with the serial number you might be able to get the original combo that the safe was set to when it was purchased ( this is a factory set combo ) --- now if that does not work, your next step will be to call a safe tech ( locksmith ) to set up a auto dialer,, this takes about a full 24 hours to get the combo right. the safe tech can also drill a small hole behind the dial and manually remove the locking bolt. after the safe is opened the locksmith will fill the hole and reset the combo for you ( also replace the battery at this time too ).
