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.
This rusty, seized Fort Knox safe was found at a B&B in Morecambe. It gave a good fight but we still managed to free the lid to find the remnants of the water from a previous flood.
A pub in North Wales were having problems with this Master Lock safe, the keypad had become unresponsive and they had lost the override keys. We opened the safe non destructively so that they can continue to use it.
We were asked to open this Chatwood-Milner safe at a residence in Cheshire. The safe had not been opened for about twenty years and had been left outside for a number of years during refurbishment. With the odds against us we still managed to get it open and back into service non-destructively.
A pub in Stoke-on-Trent lost their safe keys during refurbishment. Luckily they employed the services of a professional safe cracker who picked open the safes key lock without having to damage it. Once open we were able to supply a new set of keys ready for the grand reopening.
