Mine is locked and I can't get in...

Spoke with the manufacturer several times, ran through some of their suggestions while on the phone but in the end they said I "need to talk to a locksmith who specializes in safes..."

What area of IN are you? I had one cracked here in Indy. We bought a house and the sellers left behind a small safe and no keys or combination. I had Safemasters come out and crack it, and give it a new combination. Cost me $150 to get it cracked, and I think another $30 for the new combination.

I'm sure some Tannerite would take care of it real quick

I've had good luck even on fire proof safes with an oxygen tank, a butane lighter and 3 dozen welding rods wired together..

NW side of Indianapolis. So KY is a little far, unless of course he can't get anyone around here.

Look under Johnson Safe. Jeff Johnson lives near Zionsville. He builds safes for a living and aslo does anything related.
Hopes this helps you.

Yep, Jeff moved this safe to where it is now, I had spoken to him and followed his suggestions but to no avail... Thanks for the info though.

What brand of safe do you have? Don't most reputable safe manufactures have some kind of warranty that states they will come to your house and open/fix/repair your safe if it breaks for what ever reason, (including things like someone beating the thing with a sledge hammer tring to open it but only suceeding in knocking or handle or tumbler off).

Have you tried cracking it? Honestly it shouldn't be that hard.

1. Get a stethescope
2. Listen to the locking mechanism as you turn to the left/right
3. You should hear a click at some point when you hit the correct number
4. Once you hit the first number, go the opposite way until you hear a click

Yeah I don't know if it will work. But conceptually it should work.

It wil be taken care of next week...
