You should replace your batteries as the motor that moved the deadbolt does not have enough power to move it with weak batteries. If that fails make sure the deadbolt moves freely when the lock is removed as the mis-aligned mounting will cause excessive force be exerted to move the deadbolt. See

I have bought a used red head safe. It's open but I can't get it to close. Also, I don't have a combination for it and I'd like to make up my own. Can you help me?

Most likely it will not close because the lock has been activated while the door was open. Probably need to take it to a locksmith.

Try all the combinations. To save wear on your fingers, use a small screwdriver to dial the numbers. Try to open it after changing each digit. You can try all 1000 combinations in about twice the time it takes you to count to 1000 out loud, but unless you chose a combinations like 998, you will probably open it long before that time.

Why Brinks dead bolt keyless entry stays locked

If the bolt moves freely it should work with the correct combination. Test with door open. Reset the combination to be sure you have it correct. If it still won't work with good batteries, then the lock must have failed. Check for loose connections or broken wires. Unless it's under warranty, you'll probably need to replace it.

Bell 4 digit bicycle cable lock won't open

Same thing happened to me today. (Bell kevlar combo lock 12 mm) I sprayed WD4 0 on my lock (probably wasn't necessary) and let it soak in. I looked up videos online which weren't very helpful. I kept trying to open my lock and I happened to move one of the four digits and it opened. I'm not sure how the lock pins work but it seems like if you lock your bike and move the lock into ackward positions you can cause one or more of the pins to move. My combo was 2194 and I opened it with the combo of 2294. Go ahead and try your combos +/- one number at all four positions. Hope this helps.

My brinks 4-dial combination padlock will not open

Add my solution??? Cut the lock off and don't buy another brinks lock. I bought two of these combination locks. Over priced and over rated. I bought one for our locker at work. After about a month it refused to open. After working with it for days I finally had to cut the lock off. I bought another one. It didn't even last a week. After working with this lock again we had no choice but to cut the lock off. Being a retired locksmith of 20 years I know locks. These are worthless.

I have a new Nubbio piece of luggage with a TSA lock.I thought I set my combination but it does not work with my numbers and 000 doesn't work either?How do I open?

You can not reset your lock combination without knowing the original combination you had set.

If you have forgotten your lock combination, then there are 2 solutions.

1. You could use Bolt Cutters to break the Lock open.

2 . Sometimes, the simplest solution is often overlooked, as your lock is a 3 digit combination lock, and if you have about 30 minutes to spare, then why not try all the possible combination from 000 - 999 ( 000, 001, 002, 003 through to 999) You may think this will take a long time, but it should not take you more than 30 minutes and if the first digit of your forgotten code starts with a 0, 1, 2, or 3.. then it will take significantly less than 30 minutes. Try it out, as it will save you from having to buy a new lock if you use bolt cutters.

This is a helpful link that I can give you.

Ihave brinks firesafe model#5059, serial#042589 . Ihave the keys of it,but forget combination number pl. help me how to set it.


1-800-223-8566 m-f pst 8-4

Call the number above, give them your model #, the serial number (located on the right side of the safe next to the model number), and your key code. They will provide you with the combination to your safe. your combination number will be provided to you immediately.

Also, you can try

Combinations consist of FOUR (4) positions (numbers).
Before you begin, please clear all settings by turning the dial CLOCKWISE (to the right)
three times. We also recommend to try the procedure with your safe door open first. Then
follow these steps:
1. Start the dial on 0 (zero).
2. Turn the dial to the RIGHT, passing your first combination number FOUR (4)
times and stopping at that number on the fifth time around.
3. Turn the dial to the LEFT, passing your second combination number TWO (2)
times and stopping at that number the third time around.
4. Turn the dial to the RIGHT, passing your third combination number ONE (1) time
and stopping at that number the second time around.
5. Turn the dial to the LEFT, to the last combination number and STOP.
6. Insert the key in the cylinder lock and turn RIGHT to open.
Your safe should now be opened.

Take care.

I have a sentry SO500. I know the combination but

A locksmith would try to replace the batteries. Sometimes you will get the green light but the batteries still will not have enough power to retract the latch.
