Methods on How to Open a Fireproof Safe without Key
Unlocking a Safe with Rare Earth Magnet
Opening a digital or Sentry safe is effortless as long as you already have Neodymium Rare Earth Magnet. With this, you can already open your safe in just a few seconds. If your Neodymium magnet has a pulling force of 120 to 300 pounds, you do not need to try other methods. If you do not have this at the moment, know that you can purchase this for under 20$.
However, it would be best if you were careful in using this since it is powerful. Please do not use it near household utensils, electronic equipment, pacemaker, and other magnets. Also, do not put your finger between the magnets as you might injure your finger severely.
All you have to do is place the Neodymium magnet on a gym sock then attach it to the left corner of the Sentry safe. After that, move the magnet back to the right side. If it still does not open, move it around even more to see results. If you are trying to open a digital safe, all you need to do is place the magnet underneath the safe just below the solenoid, and you can see that it immediately opens once you do that.
Using the Bounce or Smack Method
You can only use this method on how to open a fireproof safe without a key if you have a digital one. The first thing you need to do is to put your safe on a surface that bounces. Hold the safe up by about two feet from the surface with two hands. Place one hand at the backside and one at the front side while trying to open the door. Do this a few times and see if it works for your safe.
Another method you can try is smacking the top part of the solenoid with a hammer. Do this gently while you are trying to open the door at the same time. You may try this a few times.
Using a Nail Cutter Filer
Nail cutter filers are commonly used in opening safes with lost keys and forgotten combinations. This is probably the first method that came to your mind while looking for ways on how to open a fireproof safe without key. In using this device, all you have to do is insert the tip of the nail cutter into the keyhole and push it up and down. Rotate the filer counterclockwise until the pin is released.
Using a Screwdriver and a Knife
Once you find a screwdriver or a knife, insert its pointed tip into the keyhole then slide its sharp side downwards. You may also rotate it counterclockwise. Make sure that the pointed tip of the screwdriver or knife fits right into the keyhole. This method is almost similar to using the Nail Cutter Filer and is the most suitable for sentry safes.
These are the easiest methods on how to open a fireproof safe without key. You may try all of them, but as much as possible, do not lose your key. These methods might damage your safe or lessen its efficiency in safekeeping your goods. If you are not confident enough to open a safe on our own, better call a locksmith or the manufacturer of the safe. Find out more about Fireproof Safes.
