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.

Dudley Europa Grade 0 Broken Handle

Dudley Europa Grade 0 Broken Handle

The handle on this Dudley Europa grade 0 safe had been broken off during a robbery at a hotel near Kirkham in Lancashire. Their local locksmith was called to help but knowing that a safe engineer was needed for the job he called us to get it open. Despite them having the key for the safe it will not open without a turn of the handle which was now laying on the floor. Once we were given the go ahead to open it from the crime scene investigation team we were able to open it around them whilst they continued collecting evidence. It wasn’t known for sure until we got it open but they were relieved to find the contents of the safe were still safely inside.
