Some of the other methods employed to unlock a safe might cause some forms of minor cosmetic damage, but these are only used if there is no success using the first few methods.

We implore you to be patient with them while they work to get you back into your safe.
Should I attempt to break into my safe by myself?

We understand just how anointed you can feel when you are locked out of your safe. However, instead of breaking into your safe, reach out to a safe locksmith and they will be there in no time to help get you back into your safe.
What do I do if I’ve lost my keys or forgotten my combination?
