Locksmiths agree that you have to unlock the safe just like when the door is shut and locked. Once you dial the sentry safe combination the handle will retract the bolts.

My sentry safe, number bx-887566, is stuck in the open position. The lock is engaged and the key won't turn. How do,I fix this??


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

How to program my new control remote to my Honda passport 2000


Try this please!
'98 - '02 Isuzu Rodeo and Trooper and Honda Passport(with factory keyless entry) Instructions for programming. 1. Get in car and make sure all doors are unlocked. 2. Open driver's door and leave open. 3. Put key in ignition. 4. Turn key to 'on position' (dash lights on, but do not start) and back to 'off position' 3 times in 5 seconds or less. (you must turn the key very fast) 5. Close and open driver's door 2 times in 5 seconds or less. 6. Turn key to 'on position' and back to 'off position' 5 times in 5 seconds or less. (turn key very fast) 7. Close and open driver's door the doors should lock and unlock twice after this happens push the lock or unlock button on the remote, doors will lock and unlock. Push the lock or unlock button a second time and doors will lock and unlock again. You are finished! The above sequence erases all previous codes and adds the new code as #1. If you are adding a second remote, you should follow the same sequence with the exception of step 6; instead of turning the key to the 'on position' and back to the 'off position' 5 times in 5 seconds or less, do it 3 times in 5 seconds or less and then continue to step 7. ***Remember to turn the key to the on and off position very fast. This works! Follow directions EXACTLY. I had to try 3-4 times before getting it to work. I failed to go exactly by the instructions the first few times.

How do you lock it?


Hi Celsa,

Please follow the below instructions to unlock and lock depending on the series of sentry fire safe security you have.

H & F Series:

To unlock and open:
1. Insert key in lock and turn counterclockwise.
2. Apply downward pressure on top of the safe, while
pushing the latch in to release.

NOTE: Due to compression of the gasket, the
unit will require slightly more force
than a safe that does not have a gasket.

To close and lock:

1. Close and press down on lid to engage latch.
Safe can now be transported without locking it.
2. Insert key in lock and turn clockwise.

HD & FD Series:

To unlock and open:
1. Insert key in lock and turn clockwise.
2. Pull up from bottom
of latch while pushing
down on lid to release.

NOTE: Due to compression of the gasket, the
unit will require slightly more force
than a safe that does not have a gasket.

To close and lock:
1. Close and while pushing down on the lid, press down on
the latch until it is secure.
2. Insert key in lock and turn counterclockwise.

How do Idisable the alarm


  • 1

    Close any open doors, and lock them all from the driver's door. You should hear the other doors locking when you turn the key in the driver's door. Check the other doors to make sure the lock indicators are in the "Locked" position.


  • 2

    Wait at least 15 seconds. Then, unlock the driver's door with the key. This should disable the alarm.


  • 3 Take your car to the Saab dealership if the alarm engages even with the car unlocked. That likely means there is a contact inside the lock on the driver door that is faulty.

    Programming keyless remote


    2003-04 Mazda 6 REMOTE PROGRAMMING


    Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

    Step 2: Lock and unlock the driver’s door using the power door lock switch on the door.

    Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

    Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

    Step 5: Open and close the driver’s door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

    Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

    Step 7: Press any button on remote #1 twice. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

    Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) twice. Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

    Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done!

    Good Luck.
