Question about Sentry Fireproof Safe

1 Answer

Wife locked instructions inside - door locked shut

Hoping there's help for me! I bought what I think is the Fire-Safe Combination Personal Safe SENOS0401 based on appearance. It was a couple years ago (2006), actually, that I purchased it. Sheepishly, I'm embarrased to say my wife and I (emphasis on me) never got down to the business of even reading the instructions, including ever setting a password. It's pretty much just out of the box. Well my wife's initiative finally got the better of her, and she put some items in the safe to get the ball rolling. She also latched it shut, unaware the entire user's information is inside. But I do have the key. Is there any way out of this mess -- an emergency code if the password was never set? steps to try? a magical potion?
