We Unlock security containers (open safes). It is usually easier to open a safe when it has just started to malfunction but sometimes they just fail.
There are many types of safes including mechanical dials, digital key pads, biometric locks, and push button mechanical locks to name a few.
Often times I am called out to open a safe and I find inferior batteries, or even dead batteries being used. I recommend always using name brand batteries and depending on use, changing out the batteries ever 6 months to 2 years.
If you have a mechanical dial safe, most quality brands need very little attention. They can function flawlessly for many years.
If you have the need to change the combo, we can assist you in that as well. Most digital safes can have the combo changed without any special equipment but mechanical dials need the assistance and tools of a trained locksmith or safe tech.
There are many different ways to defeat a safe including but not limited to drilling, bouncing, spiking (digital), manipulation (dial), auto-dialers, try-out combos. The technique we use to open a locked safe depends on the type of safe, its location, and how it is made.
It has been my experience that most safes can be opened without poking a hole in the safe, but often times a precision hole at a precise location can make for an easy opening and a quick repair.
The cost of opening a safe often depends on the type of safe, and the situation so it is best to call around and get price quotes.
Here are a few photos of safes we have opened This was a Fort Knox gun safe with a digital keypad that we drilled and fixed. There was no visible damage to the safe after the job was completed.
This was a LG digital lock that failed and had to be drilled and replaced.
For security reasons I can not disclose what, where or when, or can I reveal the drill point or our method to open the safe.
The photo on the left is a Star floor safe. The customer had the combo but the safe would not open. This safe was rusted on the inside. We recommend using a safe dryer also known as a dehumidifier. They can be placed in the safe, and they can be dried out and reused when they get full of moisture.
This Gas station ATM is a safe on the inside, and sometimes they fail too. We opened this little guy and had a replacement lock installed so the owner could get back to business and his customers could get cash when needed.
