We were called to this Chubb Eurosafe at a pub in Bootle, Merseyside as they could not get it open despite having the key. They had been struggling to lock and unlock it for some time and today it had completely jammed up. After a good fight we got it open one last time and decided that the lock was long overdue retirement so we changed it for a newer model.
Emergency call out today to a pharmacy in Liverpool as they could not open this B&Q safe. There was only one key available to the safe which upon inspection had a broken key bit which was the cause of the issue. We opened the door none destructively only to have the door nearly fall on us as the top hinge had broken. You can see the drag marks at the bottom of the door showing that this has been like this for quite some time. Given the low value of the safe we advised that it was beyond economical repair and a replacement should be purchased.
The owner of this Secure Safes (Coventry) Ltd floor safe could not get it open despite having a set of keys. We headed out to the job in Derbyshire and after a two hour drive we got it open without having to damage the safe in any way.
This Rottner Comsafe Monaco safe would not open despite the customer having a working key. We made the trip up to Cleveleys in Lancashire and identified the issue as a disconnected bolt which we were able to resolve and opened it without any damage. Having reconnected the boltwork we put the safe back into service for another very happy customer.
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.
We were called to a club in Chorley as they could not open their Dominator Under Floor Safe despite having the key. We determined that the safe had failed mechanically and proceeded to open it for them. Once opened we repaired and serviced the safe lid to put it back into action.
The key would no longer work in this Fort Knox Exchequer under floor safe in Ashton-in-Makerfield, Wigan. We decided to bring it back to the workshop for an overhaul. With a replacement lock, a service and two new keys she’s good to go again.
Despite having two keys the owner could not gain access to her Securikey Premier safe at her home in Knutsford, Cheshire. We attended her home and opened it nondestructively.
The owners of a restaurant in Haydock, St Helens couldn’t use this Chubb Europa safe as it would not lock with the key. We identified the problem as a worn out lock and replaced it for them so they could secure their takings once again.
This Dreadnought Defender ABP underfloor safe at a petrol station in Bromborough, Wirral would not open with the key. Initial inspection showed that the lock was loose and we could see that one of the three relocking devices had activated which meant that this was going to be a drill open job. Having drilled through the extremely tough lid it became apparent that all three relockers had fired which meant a second hole had to be made to deactivate them and finally allow the bolts to be withdrawn to open it.
