Sentry Fireproof Safe #1100 Lost Key

I've lost the keys to my Sentry safe. I've been trying for weeks to call Sentry. I can't use their online order system because I don't have the seriel number (I can't get inside the safe). All my important house documents and cash from closing out an account are locked inside.

Is my only option to use a crowbar at this point?

    I have the same problem . I think it is hopeless to get more keys. It will cost me $46.00 by visa for new keys. I wish I knew how to break it open. I just want it open but I paid $40.00 for the safe. (and now may have to pay 46.00 to get new keys) One way or the other that safe is "going down"!!!

    Any ideas of how to open it by hammer or crow bar or ...............?

No if you turn your lock box around so your key is facing away from you and place your right hand on the side top and your left hand on the box and push the lid to the right a good inch and a half and lift the box will open no problem key or no key. this is a very poorly made safe

On the Sentry Safe Model 1100, you will need to know the key numbers which can be found right around where the key goes in. It should be a stamped number, letters, or both located around the keyhole. I think that the most economical place to buy keys is from www.SentrySafeShop.com. I think that you can buy them for $20-$25. You can do a search for "lost keys" and it will give you a screen where you can enter your model number and key number. Much cheaper than destroying a perfectly good safe.

    To order replacement keys, for small chests and files, you will need to know the key numbers which can be found right around where the key goes in. It should be a stamped number, letters, or both located around the keyhole. For Personal, Home and Home/Office Safes, you will need the model number and serial number. I think that the most economical place to buy keys is from www.SentrySafeShop.com. You can do a search for "lost keys" and it will give you a screen where you can enter your model number and key number. (It is a very easy screen to use. They just need 1.)Model # and 2.)Serial or Key #.)

    In Summary:
    For Small Chests or Files: A lock reference number is required. It will be a letter, a number, a letter and number, or "blank" (no letter or number), engraved/located on the silver cylinder of the lock. These are model numbers 0500, 1100, 1170, etc...

    For Personal, Home and Home/Office Safes: (model numbers will begin with: S0, S3, S4, S5; I0, I3, I4, I5; A3, A4, A5; J3, J4, J5; L0, L3, ,CS,CSW,DA,DS,KS,KSW,MS,MSW,OA,OS,and SC): Indicate your model number and the safe serial number found on the front right-hand side of the door, between the hinges.
