Safes are often used in offices and homes to protect valuable goods from third-party access. But it’s not rare when the owner may lose keys, so they start to pick the lock on a Sentry safe.
There are only three types of lock for a Sentry Safe: the key (physical) type, electronic option, and combination type. The most common is the basic Sentry safe key. But if you want even more protection, you can choose electronic or combination type.
There are even options when you can additionally incorporate a physical key mechanism into those models. It's recommended to have multiple locking options. Rarely, the physical lock may glitch, leaving you no options to open the safe.
If you lost the key or forgot the combination to the electronic lock, contact Sentry representatives. Beware that you need to verify your identity and confirm the ownership. Otherwise, they refuse to help you unlock the device. It’s a security measure for a Sentry safe key replacement.
You can order multiple Sentry safe keys while buying the safe. Check if you have spare keys or buy replacement keys at Sentry Safe. Multiple third-party shops may try to sell you different replacement keys, but we don’t recommend buying them there. There are no warranties that they are genuine.
If you use your physical Sentry key, but the safe refuses to open, you face a damaged keyhole. It can signal two things: someone has tried to crack the lock with external tools or the tumblers inside the keyhole were harmed by a severe accident.
