Why Are You Locked Out?

The precise nature of the safe lockout has to be uncovered in order to get back into your locked safe. If your safe opens with a key and you broke the key off in the lock then remove the broken key and have a new key made in order to see if the safe opens or not.

Similarly, you can’t open the safe if you have forgotten the combination or code to the safe. Check the safe literature to see if there is a reset code to perform without opening the safe.
