Hi,

Brinks' parent company is now Honeywell, and Brinks fire safe model number 5059 is now Honeywell's model number 2054. You can find information on how to reset your combination in your user's manual, but if you no longer have it, you can access the manual, here: http://common.csnstores.com/common/marketing/Safes/Honeywell/2054_2084.pdf

To try to retrieve your combination, if you don't have the manual, you can contact Honeywell at 1-800-223-8566. Their hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00AM to 4:00PM Pacific Standard Time, or you can e-mail them at:[email protected]

You'll need to provide the model number and serial number of your safe, and possibly also the key number. You also might be required to submit a notarized affidavit proving ownership, if the company requests that.

In researching, I also found this info which might help you: try 7777 as the default combination number. Before you start, please clear all settings on the safe; this is done by turning the dial to the right (clockwise) three times. You also may try *1274# which seems to be the preset combination for a similar model. If you can get it open with these default codes, then you can reset the combination to a new one, according to the instructions in your manual.

 

If this doesn't work, and/or you don't want to wait to get information from the company, then you will need to hire a locksmith to drill a small hole and get the safe open.

I wish you much good luck in getting your safe open without too much difficulty.
