There is a lock and there is a latch.
You can latch the safe without locking it and unlocking it does not unlatch it.

After you unlock it, then you must press up on the spring loaded latch while (this important) pressing down on the cover to releast the pressure on the latch hook, allowing it to move out of the way. After the latching hook is out of the way, you can release the pressure on the lid and it will open. You can't see the latch hook as it drops down from the lid, into the front wall of the safe where it engages a post, but perhaps you can imagine what it looks like.

Mine will not unlatch, even though it is unlocked, unless I press down on the lid to give it clearance first. There is quite a bit of spring in the plastic that this safe is constructed out of. It works against you when you try to open it and close it.

I can take digital photos of the mechanism if this description does not help.

I lost a key of my 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 Homelb_icon1.png/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. They key ordering screen is: www.sentrysafeshop.com/Keys-Sentry-Safe-Replacement-Keys-p/keys.htm
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.
