I used to work for a safe company.
The solution to your problem is not nice.
You need to find someone with a 9 inch grinder and a metal cutting blade.
Don't bother to try to cut the door off it is the strongest part.
If possible cut the back off. If not possible to get to the back start with the hinges if you know where they are, some hinges are concealed and are not where they appear to be.
This solution is messy dirty noisy and dangerous, that's what safes do to deter criminals.
If safe companies kept generic codes to open any kind of safe they wouldn't be,,,,,,,,,,,,,safe.

SOURCE: know combination, but cannot open sentry safe 1250

If you know the combination:

1) Turn the dial to the left a few complete rounds, then stop on 1st number.
2) Turning the dial to the right, pass up the 2nd number once, then stop on it on the next round.
3) Turn the dial to the left directly to the 3rd number then stop.

The handle should open now.

SOURCE: how do you open a sentry 1250 combination safe? I have the number

Locksmiths agree If your safe doesn't have a key, skip Step 3.
Turn the dial to zero.
Insert your sentry safe key and turn it until the plunger pops out.
Turn the dial to the left (counterclockwise) three times to the first number of the combination (pass the first number of your combination two times, stopping on it the third time).
Turn the dial to the right (clockwise) two times to the second number of the combination (pass your second number once, stopping on it the second time).
Turn the dial to the left to the last number (stop the first time on your last number).
Pull the handle down; cracking the Fireproof Sentry Safe open.

I got a safe in anestate sale without the combo how can i get it open?

Wendy, How safe would a safe be, if there is a general combination, to open it?
Without the code, you can't open it.
So perhaps you try to find out who owned the safe, and ask him or her.
Or start trying all possible combinations.

Sorry I can't be more of a help, but a safe is made to be safe.

Thought I knew the 4 number combination, now locked inside. I do have the key. However, safe not opening. What is the exact procudure for combo?

Without wishing to state the obvious, I feel that I must do so. A safe is called a safe for a very good reason. If it was easy to get inside without the correct key or combination then by definition it would be unsafe.

If you have lost the combination and the key doesn't work then you can either try every combination until you get lucky or you must consider calling out a locksmith who will usually open the safe destructively (often by drilling out the lock) or even by using an angle grinder on the hinges.

I lost my combinations on brinks safe box and I needs help to get it open. Can you please help me ?

> can you please help me?


If you have stolen the safe-box, we are not going to help you break-in to it.

If you have your original bill-of-sale, then contact BRINKS, and be prepared to identify yourself, and to identify the exact model-number and serial-number of the safe-box, so that they can assist you.
