In the twenty years of offering safe service and being a locksmith for Cartersville, Kennesaw, Acworth, and surrounding areas we have opened thousands of safes. We do Sentry safes, Winchester safes, Cannon safes, Brinks safes, and probably far more Safe openings than what I could even begin to list.
How much is a safe opening?
This depends on the safe, but Sentry safes are $150 Some of the Cannon safes are about $200 but any safe that has hard plate will be more expensive. Hard plate is a drill-resistant plate of steel and they’re normally three or four of them. Drilling through hard plate is very labor-intensive. When it comes to this kind of safe service you can usually expect to spend somewhere between $350 and $500 depending upon the quality of the safe. However, most of the time good quality safes are repairable after they’ve been drilled.
How hard are safe openings if I’ve lost the combination to a safe?
When you lose a combination most safes will have to be drilled open. Unfortunately, there is a reason why they call them safes, and it’s definitely not like the movies. You can’t simply just use a stethoscope to listen to this face of the safe and do some magic dialing. You certainly can’t use a high-powered magnet or anything like that. Although I did just recently see a compelling video on YouTube using a tennis ball to open a safe. After this silly method did not work the customer drilled his safe into Swiss cheese. When they finally gave up they called us to open the safe.
In this case, a picture is really worth a thousand words. Luckily we were still able to get into it because we have the tools for safe openings.
