This Fichet-Bauche Egide safe utilises a key lock and a very clever C2CP combination lock, alternatively called the rotating toilet seat lock due to its design. We were called to this one in Kirkham Lancashire as the key would no longer open the safe. We discovered that the combination lock had mysteriously been locked and the combination was unknown. We were able to determine the combination through a surgically placed 6mm hole which was easily repaired to put the safe back into service for the customer.
Another company advised that the relocking devices had fired on this Chubb safe and it would need drilling open. We correctly diagnosed that the combination lock which they had never used and didn’t have the code for was locked. After manipulating the combination lock to determine the code the key opened the safe as it always had. No drilling required and a significant cost saving for the customer, feel free to phone us for a second opinion.
This Dreadnought Dauntless under floor safe would not open despite them having the key. We correctly identified a boltwork failure over the telephone and gave our quote to open and repair the safe. Once on site we were able to confirm our suspicions, get it open and back into action.
Our client had lost the keys to his Brattonsound gun cabinet and required a professional opening and replacement keys. We attended the job in Manchester and picked open both the external double bitted lock and the ammunition safe lock inside. Both locks were replaced and new keys supplied. The client commented that the cabinet operated smoother than it ever had.
These two SMP safes were locked shut and needed removing as part of a shop refurbishment in Chester. The safes were bolted to the floor so required opening prior to moving. We picked the locks open on both the safes for the client.
We were called to open this lovely old Samuel Withers safe in Wales as part of the key had broken in the lock. We extracted the offending part and opened the safe non destructively.
The keys had been lost to this Leabank Royal Safe at a chemical plant in Wales. We picked the lock open and provided a new set of keys so the safe could continue to be used.
This Church Tabernacle had become very difficult to operate after many years of service. We completeley stripped down the lock, replaced all the worn parts and provided a new set of keys.
The combination had been lost to this Fire Fyter FF150 safe which we were called to open at a home near Skelmersdale. Opening combination locks isn’t quite like in the movies with the safecracker sanding his fingers and putting on a stethoscope. We do have the skills and techniques to open them however which comes from years of practise and dedication.
Here is a perfect example of a quality safe doing what it is supposed to do. Thieves had pounded on this Churchill safe lid with sledges, tried to dig it out and even attempted to cut through it with a disc cutter with no luck. All they had managed to do was make it more difficult for us to open when we were called to this job at a petrol station in Ormskirk.
The owners keys would no longer open the lock and the bashed lid without a handle was going to be a bit more difficult to open than a simple lost key job. Despite the extra work, we were able to get the lid off to find the contents still safely inside.
Given the extent of the damage we advised a replacement safe was required in this instance but it had more than paid for itself keeping the bad guys out.
