Hello, and thanks for your question.

Brinks is now owned by "Honeywell". If you no longer have the manual that came with your safe, which would provide the combination and instructions, you can contact the company at 1-800-223-8566 and request they send you the combination and a replacement manual; you would have to provide the serial number for the safe, and may have to also prove ownership with a notarized letter. Their Customer Service hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00AM to 4:00PM (Pacific Time); or you can contact them by e-mail at:[email protected] They also may be able to tell you how to override the digital combination or use a 'default' code, to open the safe with that and your key.

Honeywell's main website address is

I hope this helped, and you are able to get your safe open without too much trouble.
