Safe Services

Change Safe Combination

Change the combination of a safe to prevent the old combination from working and keep out anyone who shouldn't have access.  Electronic safes can typically be changed by in house, but mechanical safes require a safe technician.

Locked Safe Opening

A safe can be locked up for a variety of reasons:  lost combination lost keys, faulty locking mechanisms, fired relockers, etc.  Each type of safe has different methods to open it.  Some can be opened with minimal damage but some need to be drilled open and replaced.

Lost Safe Key Generation

Safe keys can come in a variety of forms:  tubular, double sided, flat safe deposit, cruciform (four sided), etc.  Some keys can be generated from scratch, some made by  a code on the face of the lock, and some have to be drilled off and replaced.

 
 

Safe Repair

Safe repair can involve different solutions depending on the situation.  Dials and keypads can be replaced if the safe will not open properly.  If it has been drilled, the holes can be patched.  Broken handles can be reattached or replaced.

Safe Installation & Bolt Down

If you can put a safe in, a burglar can take it back out.  Stealing the whole safe allows them to get in and out quickly, and then break into it at their leisure.  Bolt down a safe to secure it to the floor and help prevent a thief from easily stealing it.

Safe Dial & Keypad Replacement

Many safes have dials (mechanical or electronic) that can be replaced.  This allows faulty dials to be replaced.  It also allows mechanical dials to be replaced with electronic (and vice versa).

Safe Deposit Services

Safe Deposit Key Duplication

Duplicating safe deposit keys is a bit more complex than copying standard house  keys.  These types of locks are used by banks and safe manufacturers because they are harder to open, and the keys are more difficult to duplicate.

Safe Deposit Lock Opening

When all copies of a safe deposit key are lost and the lock has to be opened, the easiest method is to drill it out and replace it.  This can be done if the renter key, the guard key, or both keys are lost.

Safe Deposit Lock Replacement

Safe deposit locks used by banks and depository safes can be replaced when faulty or if all keys are lost.  If the replacement has to be operated by a specific guard key, the lock can be rekeyed as necessary.
