SentrySafe is the type, it was bought at Aldies..the brochure I have has no other such information

We just arrived back in Florida put my valuables away yesterday, and of this morning it seems the battery is dead

The number you sent above is your serial number. The model ix X055.

Unfortunately on this model it is not possible to access the batteries from the outside, which means you would need the override key to open it and then access the batteries inside.

On the front, to the left of the keypad (between the keypad and the knob you turn to unlock it) is a horizontal teardrop shaped gray plastic cover, which you can pop off to access the key slot. You will need to find your keys though or obtain a replacement key to get it open.

What you'll need to do is fill out a form, have it notarized (to prove ownership) then send it in (along with a check) to Sentry. They'll mail you back the original keys

You can get the form here: https://replacements.masterlock.com/media/resources/notary-form.pdf

There are instructions on it for sending the info in by mail, or you can pay the fee online and fax/email the form after it is notarized.

I'm sorry there is not a quicker resolution possible, this process is in place to ensure security, so that not just anyone could get a code or key to your safe.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

Thank you, ***** ***** a nice day,

Nathan
