hello. My name is***** can help you with your question.

It is possible that the combination was somehow reset or set by mistake. But each one of these saves does have a master combination that will always work. If you still have the original manual, this master combo will be in the inside of the cover of the original manual. If you no longer have the original manual, you can still get the combination by filling out a little bit of paperwork with the manufacturer. They just need to verify that you are the owner of the safe and then you can get this master combination from them. To do that, just go to the following page and fill out the form and submitted to them.

please let me know if you still have any questions.

Hello, and welcome!

My name is ***** ***** if you're sure of your combination, but not the dialing sequence (it seems that you have a manual/dial safe), I can help you with that. Here is the correct way to dial a 3 number combination for a Sentry safe:

First, 'clear' the dial by turning it a few times, all the way around to the left or the right, gently.

A. Start the dial at zero.

B. Turn the dial to the left. Make sure ZERO
passes the pointer at least THREE times. Then stop
at the first number of your combination.

C. Turn the dial to the right. Stop the SECOND
time you reach the second number of your

D. Turn the dial to the left. Stop the FIRST
time the pointer reaches the third number of your


I hope this helps to get your safe open!

If the problem is that you don't know your original combination, then follow Michael's directions, above mine.
