Customer Question
I lost the key...

I lost the key to my Sentry Safe lock-box. Would it be possible to purchase a new key from Sentry. I do have the lock no. We bought it at Staples in Plaistow NH.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

It is approx 3 years old, it's a fireproof lockbox, has the no. 11 on the bottom and the letters 3F2 on the lock.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

We went to open it yesterday to store some additional documents and can't find the key. We need a new key.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

No thanks, that's all.
