A security safe is a handy device to keep valuable items and private documents secure. However, their high security can quickly come to haunt you. If you have lost the combination to your safe, you might feel like you will have to destroy the safe to get to your possessions inside. Luckily, there are other, less destructive, ways of getting into your safe. Tampa Locksmith has experience with this, and we are happy to share our knowledge. If you want to have a certified locksmith handle it, you can call Tampa Locksmith to speak with a staff member and arrange for an urgent dispatch or schedule an appointment.
If the Safe Is Open, You Are in The Best Shape
Though forgetting the safe combination is a bad situation, you are in the ideal scenario if the safe is open. Why? Because, for one, obviously you can access whatever you have in the safe. Also, because a local locksmith can decode or reset the combination. You can either bring the safe to the locksmith or have a locksmith come to your location. However, if the safe is closed and locked, then the process is going to be more complicated. Don’t fret, though. Every problem has a solution.
Use the Override Key
Some security safes come with an override key in the event of situations just like this. Assuming you do not have the key, you can call the manufacturer of the safe to request a key be sent to you. You will likely need to gather the serial number and model to share with the manufacturer. If they will not or are unable to send the key, you can call Tampa Locksmith or any local locksmith to have a replacement key made.
Find the Drill Points
Another method to get access to the safe is with drilling. A certified locksmith can get into the safe without irreparable damage by finding the drill points. These drill points vary from safe to safe so we will need to know the brand, model, and serial number of the safe. The brand name is usually on the front of the lid and the other information can be found on the back of the safe. Call Tampa Locksmith and share this information to see if our locksmiths are able to handle your particular safe. Chances are that we can. Call now to speak with a friendly representative.
Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures
If the safe is inexpensive and easy to replace, you might be best off destroying the safe to get into it. You will have to determine whether it is better for you to spend time and money on professionally accessing the safe or cutting to the chase and breaking in. Generally, you are better off breaking the safe if it costs less than a couple of hundred dollars. Otherwise, calling the professional locksmith is probably worth your time. If you need a reliable and affordable locksmith in Tampa, then call the professionals at Tampa Locksmith.
