Hi,

Most Sentry safes can be opened with just the key, but the method of doing so varies from model to model. Certain models have a different key which can be used without the combination. This usually needs to be turned in the opposite direction to the standard key turn and then the door pulled open with the key still fully turned in the lock.

Unfortunately, there are hundreds of Sentry safe models. I am unable to tell you which method will work for your safe or whether it can be opened without the combination.

If you have registered your safe with Sentry, you can recover your combination immediately from here:

https://www.sentrysafe.com/CustomerCare/Lost_Your_Combination

If you did not register your safe, there are also instructions on the same page for recovering your combination. Alternatively, you can call Sentry customer service on:

1-800 828-1438

The above details are for Sentry USA. If you are in a different location and need contact details, please let me know.

If you can post back here with the model number of your safe, I may be able to help you gain access.

Regards,
BElectric

Locksmiths advise these Opening instructions for sentry fireproof electronic security safes. Insert the tubular sentry key into the lock to the left of the key pad. Turn the key all the way to the right until the plunger pops out. Press the five-digit factory code. The green Proceed light will come on. Pull the handle down; to crack the sentry door open.

Harldline safe not opening


Sure blame the poor kid.
Think about it, what good would a safe be if by pressing a few keys the combination was changed?
As with any combination safe you need to clear the combination by turning one, two or three times in the opposite direction before entering the combination.

Now say your sorry to your kid.

Can't open sentry v260 safe


Make sure you are inserting key so the round hump on key matches red dot on lock, and turn key clockwise.

If that doesn't fix it, SentrySafe's support number is 1-800-828-1438.

I would think they can confirm the combination from your serial number. They probably won't give you the combination without a notarized letter, but if you have the right combination for that serial number safe, they may confirm that you are entering the right combination.

Be aware the 4 number combination V260's are changeable and if you HAVE changed it, you are on your own, they can't help you. The 3 number combinations are not changeable.
