We haven't opened our safe in a long time and have forgotten all information on how to dial our numbers. One time around then back to the other numbers? Just what is the proper rotation? PLEASE help need papers very soon. Thank you Mary

    Hi, thanks for the instruction book. However I very carefull did the dial combination three different times and I still can not open it. Is there some way to change the combo? We are having a problem finding the manual, hopefully my husband ddn't put it in the safe. When it says to turn the dial to the left, does that mean if the 0 is at the top does the 0 go to the left or does it go to the right?

    The link I gave you is the manual. The 0 should go to the left if your turning it left. If you continue to have an issue you may need to contact sentry directly:

    Did you have the locksmith try and use the code first? Be careful with the keypad safe. They can be just as hard to get open when the battery dies. Please reconsider and accept/rate my solution accordingly.
    Thank you,

Usually, iy used to be, the lock turns to the RIGHT First, then Back LEFT. BUT... they did used to muddle mechanisms up, I mean it is a SAFE.. it is meant to be very hard to get open without the right "Key" or "Code", to make sure no-one knew what to expect, so they made it the reverse to add another layer of protection.
Your best bet, though, is to call a registered locksmith, he will open your box, one way or another

Have old 50 yrs weilink safe have comb. not opening


You could have the correct combo... but not be using the correct pattern. Here it is.
Turn dial several times to the right to clear it...stop on 0
Turn dial to left (ccw) 3 times past the first number and then stiop on that number the 4th time around.
Turn dial to right 2 times past the second number stop on that number the 5rd time around
Turn dial to left 1 time past the 3rd number and stop on the 2nd time around.
Turn dial to the right until it latches (could be the last number or the drifted number) until it stops
Twist handle and open door.

NOTE:If this fails to open it then its possible (after years of use and w/o service) that the numbers 'drift' from there original spot. You can try to find this out by applying pressure to the handle (which engages the 'fence' inside and rubs it against the wheel pack). While applying light pressure rotate the combo dial and where it locks up should be one of the numbers... check this against your 'correct combo' and see how they match. If it's off then all of them are off. You'll need to determine the 'new' combo by drawing the dial with the numbers use the fence located number (usually the first or last) and then reverse engineer the combination. You may also want to grab a book on safes/ safe-cracking to understand the mechanics if this doesn't make sense. Good luck!

Hello,

Also, you can try

TURNING SEQUENCE
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

Brinks safe


As I understand that safe has four numbers to the combo. 1) turn the dial to the right passing the first number 4 times stopping at that number the next time around. 2) Turn the dial to the left passing the second number 2 times and stopping on that number the next time around. 3)turn the dial to the right passing the third number 1 time and stop on that number the next time around. 4) Turn the dial to the left stopping on the last number. 5) Insert the key into the cylindrical lock and turn it to the right.
