Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. You will have to apply formally to the company that made the safe. If it is a Sentry Safe, there is a good established procedure for doing so. (If it is some other manufacturer's safe, though, it may not be so easy and established.)Proof of original ownership (e.g. a bill of sale for the safe) is most likely to be required by any maker of safes. (Please be advised that a safe is just that: if well-designed, there is no fast way into it without the combination/code/key.) https://www.sentrysafe.com/CustomerCare/Lost_Your_Combinationis the page that instructs the owner how to go about getting the combination back, for the safe. I hope that this advice helps. (If it's not a Sentry Safe, let me know what the maker's name is, and I will try to find appropriate advice.)
