The key and combination were lost for this Cock safe in Rugeley, Staffordshire. We travelled down on a Sunday to avoid the traffic and to get the job done at a convenient time for the client. We picked open the key lock and with a bit of combination lock manipulation we had the door open without any damage. If you need a safe engineer or safe locksmith in Staffordshire then please get in touch for a no fuss service.
The combination had been lost to this Dudley safe at a business in Northwich, Cheshire. We opened the safe by manipulation so as not to cause any damage and reset the combination. If you need a safe cracker in Cheshire then please give us a call.
The combination had been lost to this Phoenix 2500 DataCombi data safe at a facility in Skelmersdale, Lancashire. Fortunately we were able to get it open without any damage so that it retained its fire rating and could continue to be used.
The combination had been lost to this Eastcom Potevio 8100 ATM cash machine at a business in Skelmersdale, Lancashire. We opened the S&G lock and set it to a new combination.
The combination lock had accidentally been locked on this Dudley Europa Grade 1 safe at a pub in Wythenshawe, Manchester and nobody knew the combination. We opened the combination lock without any damage which enabled them to use the key lock to open it once again.
Having opened a Phoenix Titan 1250 Series safe at a business in Wigan we were asked to have a look at the safe next to it. This one was a Phoenix 1253 Titan for which the combination had been lost. Once again we opened it without damage and put it back into service allowing the customer to set a new combination of their choice.
The key and combination had been lost to this Hilka Digital Home Safe S-50EA(II) in Lytham St Annes due to a bereavement and we were asked to sort out the problem. We picked the lock open and changed the cylinder to provide a new set of keys and reset the combination to put it back into service.
We were called to open this unusual Fichet-Bauche safe at a residence in Ormskirk due to a lost combination. The lock uses four separate clickers to set the combination after which the key can be used to retract the boltwork to open the door.
Fichet-Bauche is of French origin and came about through the merger of the Fichet and Bauche companies in 1967.
The Crado Hideaway is a rather unique under floor safe which has three separate dials which can be independently set to a number ranging from zero to nineteen. Each dial must be set correctly in order to retract the boltwork and allow the lid to be opened. The safe was made by Crado Devices Limited which were a London based company incorporated in 1975 but who unfortunately went into liquidation in 1981.
Although we were aware of this safe we haven’t to date been tasked with opening one so when this unit came up for sale we just had to have it out of professional curiosity. Safe engineers are a rather strange breed, we just love to tinker and see how things work so when this arrived in the workshop we were all over it like kids at Christmas. It didn’t take us long to set a random combination and open it using existing knowledge and techniques but it was still a great pleasure to finally see exactly how they work and to ultimately be able to use that knowledge to open them non-destructively.
So if you have a Crado Hideaway safe that you require opening then please do get in touch as it would be a pleasure to be able to open it for you.
After an unfortunate hospitalisation of several years the owner of this Brattonsound gun safe could no longer remember the combination to open it. With a firearms inspection due it needed opening urgently so we headed to the home in Bolton to open it up for him. It is unusual to find these with mechanical combination locks but we got it open without any damage as we would have done with the key locking versions.
