Hello, and sorry you're having problems.
How do you change the battery in a Sentry safe?
If you need further assistance let me know. Before you go, PLEASE DO click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of your screen. That is how I am credited for my efforts by the site. You can follow up any time as needed at no additional cost.
Do you need further assistance with this?
You don't need fresh batteries to open the door of the safe. You use the key to open it and then replace the batteries. Are you saying you don't have the key?
Okay, and sorry to hear that. The key is the only workaround when the batteries have died unfortunately and this is how Sentry designed the safe to operate. I would suggest trying to contact Sentry directly to see if there are any options to obtain a key to open the safe (click on "Need a Key"):
Let me know if you need more help. Also, could you please click a POSITIVE RATING (3-5 stars at the top of the page) and click SUBMIT so that I am credited for working with you today?
I was just following up to see if you needed further help. The site shows that since the question is open that you are still looking for help. Or, if you received the information you were looking for-could you please kindly rate my service POSITIVELY (by clicking a 3-5 star rating at the top of the page) to reflect that? Thanks in advance.
