Is there a way to open a Sentry Safe without the key?
You can either use a small screwdriver and the nail file, as you did with the two paper clips, or the nail file may do the job on its own. Place the tip of the nail file into the lock. Wiggle the file and attempt to rotate the lock clockwise. Continue trying this motion until it starts to give.
Why is the Sentry Key not working on my Sentry Safe?
Insert the Sentry key in the keyhole and turn it counter-clockwise as opposed to clockwise. When the Sentry key doesn’t physically turn in the keyhole, it means that the tumblers inside the keyhole may have been damaged. Contact the Sentry Safe company by email or on the phone for additional help.
What’s the best way to open a Sentry Safe?
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO REMOVE THE BACK PANEL WITHOUT BREAKING ANYTHING. TAKE YOUR TIME AND USE A BUTTER KNIFE TO PRY THE DOOR OPEN OR A FLAT HEAD SCREW DRIVER. I USED A BUTTER KNIFE. IT’S A LOT MORE THINNER SO LESS CHANCE OF BREAKING IT. I WISH I CAN PUT A FEW PICS UP HERE, BUT IF YOU NEED IT, HIT ME UP AND I CAN SEND THEM TO YOU.
