Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

If your model has a key with it, that is the emergency unlock key. It is to be used to open the safe in the event of the combination not working or being forgotten.

You may have to contact your local Elsafe representative about this problem, also.

What model is your Elsafe, please? recovery procedure would vary according to model # *****
