This Burton Consort Safe contained all the keys to the exhibits at a Cheshire Museum. When the safe refused to open they were forced to close the attraction for the day. We were eventually contacted to get the safe open so that they could reopen on Monday.
Who do you call when the only key to your strongroom breaks on a Saturday night? Paladin Safe Services of course! With access urgently required by Monday morning we agreed to head up there straight away to relieve our customers stress. Another very happy customer and safe engineer.
Fort knox underfloor safe picked open. Neither of the keys which I was told were 100% the right ones would work despite some effort. Luckily we don’t need keys!
All those years playing “Operation” paid off extracting a very stubborn broken key from this Burton Watchman Safe. Didn’t even buzz once!
An old George Price safe picked opened in Worsley, Manchester. Clever little lock with an anti-pressure device to frustrate picking. A lot more thought went into these things back in the day.
If there is one bit of advise I could give to safe owners it would be to never force anything. If your door is hard to close there is usually a reason. Coins, paperwork or in this case a bag strap can make it difficult to get the door shut and even more difficult to get it open again. Luckily we were able to get the door back open without any damage on this Dudley safe.
The owner couldn’t open this Chatwood-Milner Duplex safe despite having the correct key. We attended the job in Halifax and was able to get the door open. After a good service the safe was put back into action.
When the staff couldn’t open this SMP Community safe in Southport they new who to call. We had previously attended a problem with the bottom lock which we fixed three years ago. This time the top lock would not open despite them having the correct code. We managed to get it open non-destructively and put it back into service for them.
The new owners of a house in Bolton discovered this Securikey Safeguard under floor safe and wanted to be able to use it. We opened the safe and provided a new set of keys.
A garage in Liverpool were unable to open this Dudley under floor safe even though they had the key. We determined that the lock had become disconnected from the safes boltwork so there was no way for the lock to pull the door bolts back. We opened the safe and made the necessary repairs to get it working again.
