Hello, Reginaldo and welcome!

My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to assist you with your safe issue today.


My apologies that your question did not receive an earlier answer. Different experts are online at various times and I recently logged in and read your question.

If your safe is made by Sentry, here are the instructions to retrieve your original combination from them.

No combinations are ever available online, for your security and protection, but you can easily retrieve the original, factory-set combination directly from Sentry by filling out this Notary FORM

After you retrieve your combination, it would be a good idea to register it online, so you can get it immediately, if it is misplaced or forgotten, in the future:

You should receive your combination within about a week after submitting the form, via the mode of your choosing.

I would recommend following up the submission of your Notary Form with a call or email to Sentry to make sure they have received it.

To contact Sentry, here is their Customer Service information:

For your convenience, I've listed their Customer Service phone and fax numbers:

Customer Service: 1-800-828-1438 (hours are 8AM-6PM Monday through Friday, Eastern time, but are subject to change). Fax: 585-381-2940

If you can't wait and need your safe opened immediately, you can call a local, certified locksmith or safe technician, who will be able to get your combination on the spot, from Sentry, after you prove safe ownership, or s/he can open it in an alternative way. This would, of course, be a more costly way to proceed, but only if absolutely necessary. You can try any certified, licensed local locksmiths/safe technicians in your local area.

I hope this information helped you, and I wish you much good luck with your safe!
