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.
All those years playing “Operation” paid off extracting a very stubborn broken key from this Burton Watchman Safe. Didn’t even buzz once!
There will be very few people going to the pub today since they have been forced to close due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Taking all necessary precautions we were able to attend this job at a pub in Preston. The keys were lost to this Burton safe and the pub needed to bank their last takings. The lock was picked open non-destructively and they are hoping the keys will turn up before they are able to re-open for business.
We were called to this Burton KG 3000 Keyguard Safe at a care home in Southport. Part of the key had broken off in the lock and although they had managed to remove the key they were unable to open the safe with the spare key. We identified and resolved the problem by modifying the broken key to reset the lock and allow the spare key to operate the safe once again.
