I opened my first safe in 1978, well I was technically an assistant safe cracker. Things have come a long way since then as we now use some very cool gadgets to help open all types of safes. Most modern safes use digital locks and our most common safe problem is either a flat battery or dud batteries. Last month I did a safe opening Brisbane City, it was a CMI commerce and the person who had the code left abuptly. Opening a safe where the code is lost can be a tricky experience. Primarily safes are designed to keep people out. Most modern (good quality) safes have “hard plate” or glass relocking devices. If a criminal or unskilled person attempts to open a safe it can make the job even harder. It always best to let the experts do it.
Safe cracking needs to be done in such a way that the safe is as good as it was before it was cracked. Sometimes I see safes that have been opened and the person uses plastic puty to do the repair. If we have to drill a safe open we will fill the hole with a much harder material. Many safe openings result from a lack of maintenance. Safes are like any other mechanical device and need to be serviced. Digital locks have definitely reduced the amount of servicing we do. However considering the consequences servicing a safe every 2 or 3 years makes economic sense.
Spin combination locks used to be vogue however they only make up 1 or 2 percent of our new safe sales. Digital locks are both far more convenient and reliable than spin dial comination locks. That said Bunnings safes and many other cheap safes use extremely low grade digital locks. These cheap locks are notoriously unreliable and easy to bypass. Youtube has many videos of people cracking cheap safe locks. I cant stress enough that if you need a safe do some reseach. You will soon find that cheap safes are no match for most criminals.
We can open any safe it just a matter of time and money. The highest grade Bankers safes can be cracked and of course we also repair any and all safes. Chubb safe company is probably themost popular safe followed by CMI safe company and then Guardall. We have all the relevant “blueprints” of thse safes which helps us work out the best way to open them.
Most times we can open your safe in a timely manner. The opening can even be done on the same day depending on the safe and nature of the problem. If you want a quote to open a safe send me a photo so I can work out a price. Send your email to [email protected].
