Safes Lock Defeating

The methods available for defeating a safe depend on the locking mechanism that is used in securing the safe. Modern safes have identified most of the lock defeating systems and safeguarded against them, in order to increase the security and defence against scrupulous safe openings by robbers. However, if you have lost the key or the combination code, then service of a professional locksmith firm to help you open your safe, is your best answer. An expert lock defeating technician will try to aim for the use of non-destructive techniques, depending upon the safe you need opened, however many times the only way out is by drilling the safe and disabling the bolts.

Types and more

Opening Rotary Combination Locks

AMost of the older generation safes are built with rotary combination mechanisms. Defeating these locks is done by manipulating the feel or sound of the lock to arrive at the combination. Modern safes counter this possible defeating technique with lightweight wheels and false tumbler notches to give off misleading combination codes.

Combination Padlock mechanisms

Safes with this locking mechanism is often opened by the safes expert using leverage application on the shackles while turning the dial to determine the combination.

Combination Locks

These modern lock systems are harder to unlock and the locksmith needs to try out every possible combination until the right one is determined. It is however a relief for the technician that most safes operate with a “slop” in the setting of the dial. This makes it necessary for the locksmith to identify only a subset of the combination, reducing the needed number of trials. Generally 2 digits out of 6 digits are set as “slops”, or redundant in the combination.

Auto dialler equipment

Regardless of the type of locks in place, auto dialler equipment can provide greater efficiency and more precision in exhausting the possible combinations, by replacing the human mind with mechanical dialling. This equipment is now made even more effective with computer-aided software to make logical decisions regarding the combination that can speed up the process of code isolation. If you have secured safe opening services of a professional locksmith firm, then your job will be supported by such expensive equipment, which laymen locksmiths will not have at their disposal.

As evident, defeating and opening a safe without causing damage to your valuables as well as your safe is not an easy job. Even when you have to drill through in order to open a safe, there is a professional way to do so, and many times to save the safe from being too damaged or make your safe irreparable for future use.
