How to Dial Open a Combination Safe Lock How to dial open a group 2 mechanical combination safe lock, the easy way. Works on all Group 2 from Sargent & Greenleaf, La Gard, Kaba, and most others.

40 years of telling people how to open locks over the phone, I hope it works as well on youtube.

For decades group 2 locks like the S & G and LaGard type were the locks of choice virtually every safe manufacturer in the world, including American Security (Amsec), Cannon, Browning, Fort Knox, Liberty, to name a few.

Hi, my name is John Dean and I'd like to show you an easy way to open up a group two lock whether it's an S&G, Lagard, Kaba, doesn't matter. All the group two locks open up exactly the same way. Now the first thing I want you to do, trick number one is I want you to write down left, right, left, right and then next to that, four, three, two, one, that's the sequence that we are going to be using to dial this safe open, right now.

To follow our sequence first thing you do is, you turn it four times to the left. You sneak up on your first number, in this case it's fifty, and you want to make sure that the crows foot is directly above it, ignore the other mark, this is the one that counts.

Our second number is twenty-four you pass Twenty-four once, going to the right, pass it twice, and we're going to stop at twenty four our third time. Bang there we go. Our last number is sixty-five you pass sixty-five, once, you stop your second time.

We're almost home.

Now you go to the right, and right about, somewhere, between ninety-five and five, it kind of pulls itself in, and you want to pull it a little further, it'll stop somewhere between eighty-five and ninety-five, now that's retracting
the bolts, at this point this safe is unlocked, and you just open it up.

Now one last note in locking the safe, all group two locks, you must turn them to left four or more times, if you don't do that you're safe is a really locked and it can be easily manipulated opened. Now by the way, if you want these instructions in PDF form, I'm going to put in a link over here on the information thing, on the little more info, so you can go directly and print down a PDF.

Watch the video couple of times you'll get the drift of it, it's pretty easy to do.

Thank you very much

YouTube is a beautiful thing! Not only can you go there for entertainment
(i.e. raywilliamjohnson, Smosh, Mega64, College Humor, etc.) but you can go
there to learn a plethora of knowledge (i.e. everything from how to install
a car radio to setting up a Minecraft server). I, like you, always knew
this, but I didn't realize how much I appreciate this until I needed to
learn how to open a dial safe at 3am in the morning!!! LOL!

Thanks for the video. Very instructive. Can you recommend a resource for
information on antique safes? A friend has a very old (late 19th C.)

is purported to be the correct three-number combo, but we have been unable
to re-open the safe. Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

what is the combo pattern for a sentry safe? i have the combo but can't
getit open. where do i stop on the last turn?

Author DeanSafe (2 years)
@Karen77001 Its a simplex lock and most locksmiths can pick it for you. The
factory code is 0-0-0

Author DeanSafe (2 years)
Chances are you have the wrong combo, or even a malfunctioning lock, It's
time to call in a pro

Author DeanSafe (1 year)
Save your money. Star round door safe opens the same way except after you
go to the last number of the combination and before you all-the-way to the
drop in point you stop at "0", push and hold dial down, while holding it
down continue to turn to the right until it stops. That it, good luck, John

Author DeanSafe (2 years)
@cherrle310 Sorry to hear that, but it can be opened by a good safe guy
with technique known as manipulation. In Los Angeles we charge about $300
to do this and we're successful about 95% of the time. If manipulation
fails, drilling is the next best alternative. Good luck, John

Sorry, I cant speak for them but I've received combos many times in the
past. Maybe they changed there policy..... I just asked they still do but
they only go back a year (that's new).

Author Izzat Ishak (2 years)
why if u missed alinged one of them. how to restart?

Author DeanSafe (1 year)
Your best bet is to call the manufacturer of the safe they may still have
the comb. if not you're going to need to call a local safe guy.

Author DeanSafe (2 years)
You need to call a good Safeman in your area to manipulate or drill it
open. sorry no easy way on this one. John

Author DeanSafe (1 year)
The Key is not an override so you'll need to dial it they it likes before
it will open. I don't remember what the opening sequence on sentry's are
but give them a call I'm sure they will help you. thanks, John
