SOURCE: My husband locked both keys in the safe 94985...

Search on "How to open a safe with a potato" and you'll find a youtube video on how to open that safe. All the Bunker Hill safes use the same lock mechanisms which have a critical design flaw if the spring on the solenoid is weak in that the plunger bounces enough to allow the bolt to be thrown open if you can time hitting the front of the safe just right. Of course, if you mount it such that you can't get a good swing in then no problem. There are two adjustment screws to the bolt throw, if your safe is easily opened this way, you might want to adjust these screws so that more of the plunger hits the stop. I couldn't get mine to open with a rubber mallet but it's mounted so you can't get a good swing in.

You should have a key for emergency backup. The plate next to the keypad covers it. :-)

I can't get the lock to disengage so now it's locked...open!!


You must enter the code to unlock the safe, just as if the door was shut. The safe does not know the door is open and you just need to shut it.


If you have entered the code and it unlocks properly but you still can't disengage the bars, take the panel off the inside of the door and inspect to see what is causing the problem.

I HAVE A GRAFTER ELECTRONIC DIGITAL SAFE WITH A LOCKED DOOR, NO KEY, NO CODE AND AT THE MOMENT NO LUCK. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP. ?


If the safe isn't fixed to the wall or floor, then you can easily open the door in seconds.

Just balance the safe on it's rear edge, tilted back about 45 degrees, so the front is about 4" off the ground.

Hold the door release gently and allow the safe to fall flat, as you hear the impact, turn the release clockwise. Timing is everything and it took me 4 goes to get it right.

How do you lock it?


Hi Celsa,

Please follow the below instructions to unlock and lock depending on the series of sentry fire safe security you have.

H & F Series:

To unlock and open:
1. Insert key in lock and turn counterclockwise.
2. Apply downward pressure on top of the safe, while
pushing the latch in to release.

NOTE: Due to compression of the gasket, the
unit will require slightly more force
than a safe that does not have a gasket.

To close and lock:

1. Close and press down on lid to engage latch.
Safe can now be transported without locking it.
2. Insert key in lock and turn clockwise.

HD & FD Series:

To unlock and open:
1. Insert key in lock and turn clockwise.
2. Pull up from bottom
of latch while pushing
down on lid to release.

NOTE: Due to compression of the gasket, the
unit will require slightly more force
than a safe that does not have a gasket.

To close and lock:
1. Close and while pushing down on the lid, press down on
the latch until it is secure.
2. Insert key in lock and turn counterclockwise.

How to set up th ebatteries in my sentry safe DSW5781?


Locksmiths agree
1. Remove and discard the screw (if
equipped) at the base of the lock case.
2. Turn the electronic lock case to the
right (clockwise), from 12 o’clock to
2 o’clock, and remove.
• Insert 4 new AA batteries (not included) to power
this lock.
• Replace the electronic lock case and turn to the
left (to 12 o’clock) to reassemble.
NOTE: The yellow LED will light when the batteries
need to be replaced.
3. Turn the key (if your safe is equipped with a key
lock) to the right so the lock cylinder pops out.
4. Enter the factory code. When the green light appears, you
have four seconds to turn the handle down to
open. Try this several times before proceeding to
the next step.
To unlock safe:
Enter the 5-digit factory code, a pre-programmed
user code, or a pre-programmed user pin
programming instructions. When the
green LED lights you have 4 seconds to turn the
handle and open the safe.
To lock safe:
Close the door and return the handle to the
horizontal position. For greatest security, depress
the key lock (if equipped) with your finger.

Lost instructions for sandleford E.S.20 safe


The operating instructions on the ES20 as per the crappy manual:

Open safe using emergency key provided

Insert batteries in the box inside the door

Opening the safe
a. pre-set factory code 159
b. input 159 (the yellow light will flash and the buzzer will beep), then press B or A button, the green light will be on, rotate the knob clockwise, pull outwards, the door is opened

Closing the safe: close the door, input the code (the green light will flash for 5 secs). Turn the knob anti clockwise, the control system will activate and the safe will be locked

Changing the code: open the safe, press the red button located inside the door, the yellow light will go on indicating the code can be changed. Input the new code (1-8 digits), then press A or B button, it shall be confirmed by two beeps indicating the new code has been accepted and stored. If the yellow light and buzzer beeps 3 times the code is invalid - try again

Emergency Key - store in secure place NOT inside the safe. Remove the override cover in the centre of the face of Safe (its a silver plastic panel with Sandleford Electronic Safe ES20 on it), insert override key (a cyclinder key) - hidden underneath the override cover panel - and turn anti clockwise, rotate the knob clockwise to open door

Changing the Battery - If the red and green light are on this indicates that the batteries are low and require changing. To ensure the batteries have been installed correctly test before closing the door
