Question about Sentry Fireproof Safe
We have lost our combination to the safe during our move. Is there anyway we can re set the combination??? The door to the safe is open but is in a locked position.
We have a combination lock with a handle and the only information I have on the safe is that it is a Sentury Fire Proof Safe 1250; bought about 10 years ago.
Any help would be great!!!
Is there any way to crack the safe by feel, ive seen it done before and have some experience in opening locks with pin tumblers, but not wheel tumblers. i can find the notch in the third wheel at around 10-15 but i dont know where to go from there. I would not be using this information for any illegal use, i just need to open my safe on my own, and soon, thank you.

Remove the back plate. Then turn the dial 4x to the left all wheels should be moving now. Look for the first gate (a small opening in the wheel) on the wheel closest the safe dial. When it's lined up with the fence from the handle. Look and write down this # now dial right until the next wheel is picked up. Doing the same as before. Again change direction and write down the number. Do this until all numbers are recorded. Turn the handle and if it works, keep the door open and try it from the numbers you have. It will be different on 4 and 3 wheel packs but same idea. Turns should be 4321 alternating L and R. If this doesn't work goto local locksmith. Do not shut and lock door till you are sure you can open!!!

I concur with ohiotom but I will use this as a suggested solution in order to get this off the board.
You have to contact Sentry directly to get another combination
