Brattonsound Safe Opening

Brattonsound Gun Safe Opening

Client called early on a Saturday morning as the key to this Brattonsound Gun Safe in Great Harwood was stuck in the lock and he was understandably worried about leaving the house with the key left in the lock. We attended site within the hour and was able to remove the key allowing us to identify with the use of a scope that the lock was ‘half cocked’. These are double throw locks which means that the key needs to be rotated twice to fully lock or unlock it, in this instance the lock had only been thrown once and in this state it is not possible to insert the key. With the use of a specialist tool we were able to reset the lock to the fully locked position and thus enabled the key to be inserted to unlock the gun cabinet.

Post Office Keys Locked In Safe

Post Office Safe Opening

I received an emergency call from a local post office last week, they had accidentally locked three sets of safe keys inside one of the safes and were unable to open the shop until they could access the money. I was in attendance at another job at the time the call came in but luckily I was just about wrapping it up and was able to be with them within half an hour and had the safes open within another 30 minutes.
