Safes are very tricky to open most of the time, especially because they hold delicate and important items such as property papers, jewelry, money, and much more. Many people think that there is a magic solution, that you can just stick a paperclip in the lock and that’s it, but let’s consider that we are talking about a real safe that is made not to be destroyed or breached, but opened by a real professional.
If you want to open your safe effectively, without risking yourself or the items you keep there and still be able to get them and in some cases even reuse your safe, call a locksmith. He will tell you what he can do depending on the specific case, for example:
Open a safe without a key.
If you have lost the key or combination that opens the safe, then it is best to have the locksmith use a lock pick to do the job. This item is one of the most commonly used by both locksmiths and professional criminals who already have experience. The locksmith will put the tubular lock pick through the corner of the lock and its retractable pins will adapt to the depth and geometry of the box to allow it to rotate and fit the lock from the inside, which will make it open without much trouble.
Doing this on our own can cause us to damage the internal lock and even hurt ourselves if we apply force and the tool does not seat. Also, among the benefits of having a professional do this is that they can repair your safe and then create a key.
Opening a locked electronic safe
In the event that you have locked your safe in some way or another by putting in the wrong combination many times, a locksmith can help you open it as long as you provide him with a certificate or letter stating that you are the full owner of the safe.
Most safes can sometimes have two locks in case of a lockout, but only a locksmith will know how to open them.
Opening a key and combination safe
If you have the misfortune of not being able to open your safe because you need a key and combination, and you have forgotten both or one that prevents the other from opening, a locksmith can help you depending on your model to be able to open them so that they can function properly.
Opening a safe without knowing the combination
In case it is only by combination, it is quite complicated to open it without damaging it a little and having to change it. But it can still be opened and important objects can be removed with locksmith tools that will prevent them from being damaged and everything will go as planned. With this type of locks you have to be very careful because they can be easily blocked and the security system puts much more effort to make it impossible to open them.
