Hello, and welcome!

Is your safe manual (dial) or electronic?

It's a Sentry safe, correct?

Are you 100% sure of your combination?

Does your safe also require a key to open, along with the combination?

When was the last time you opened the safe?

Thank you for all your additional information. After you reply, please allow me some time to read through it, compose and send your detailed answer.

Best regards,

Cher
