How a Locksmith Gets into a Safe

Although opening a safe with lock issues may seem unfeasible, locksmiths have specialized equipment that can open most safes. The specific method for getting into the safe will depend on the type and complexity of the safe. Often, a locksmith will be able to open the safe within 30 minutes. The more complex safes, however, will take longer to access. 

There are several methods used by locksmiths to get into a safe, including: 

  • Lockpicking – Locksmiths are often able to open the lock by picking it. If keys have been lost, new keys can be cut for the lock, or the locksmith can change the lock. 
  • Code resetting – To access an electronic safe, the locksmith will need to use a device that can electronically retrieve the code or reset the lock back to its default code. 
  • Scoping – When a safe has added security measures, the locksmith may need to drill a hole in the safe and then insert a borescope into the hole to find out how to open the lock. 
  • Drilling – Some occasions require that the safe be drilled to get it open. Following the drilling, the locksmith would carry out the necessary repairs. 

Cutting – As a last resort, the safe can be cut open using a torch 

Can a Safe Be Rekeyed?

Although it is possible to replace a safe lock, in some cases, rekeying it might be the better option. Rekeying a lock involves swapping out the pins inside the lock with new pins. Once this is completed, a new key can be made to open the lock’s new setup. 

Typical situations in which rekeying a safe lock is a valid option include: 

  • The safe key has been lost and could be found and used by others 
  • The safe owner wants to prevent a key holder from accessing the safe
  • The safe owner wants a single key for multiple safes 

AAA Safe & Lock is here to help home and business owners determine the best options for accessing their items in a locked safe or vault, whether through repair, replacement, or rekeying.
