safe dial lockYou just bought a safe and had it installed in your home or business. The locksmith or sales rep went through opening the safe with the combination a couple times. But, now you have this beautiful safe and you have tried to dial it open a couple times but just aren’t having any luck.

You are not alone!

For almost every safe we sell, half our customers call back after a month or so asking for assistance dialing it open.

Here are four easy-to-follow steps to dial your safe open.

For this example we are going to use the combination 20-40-60.
