I have a Major safe company safe and had not used it in

Customer Question
I have a Major...

I have a Major safe company safe and had not used it in several years. I have the handwritten combination that sent with the safe. It says "57" then "21" or "25" then "74" or "79" and finally "6" or "4". Please help me!

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

We've owned the safe for about 45 years. It used to open then.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I live in Honolulu, Hi and been unable to get someone to work with.

Dear Jarrett,You did not answer my question. Can I email the combination to you and you can decipher it and give me the combination?
Home Improvement Expert: Jarrett Baker, Building Inspector replied 7 months ago

I am not skilled in deciphering combinations. I can only advise you that I still think that you should call a lock smith. I do believe that there are software programs for deciphering combinations, but you will likely pay a lot for it, versus a lock smith. I hope that you understand that it would take a person with some very special skills, to be able to look at your combination and decipher it. I hope this helps you.
