Hi Tom, and welcome back to Just Answer!

You will need to contact Sentry to obtain information about your current combination if you have registered your safe, or on how to reset or change your combination after proving ownership of the safe, by submitting a notarized letter. You will find directions to obtain this information from the manufacturer, at the site below:
