Patsy Bruns

"Jeff from HKS Systems is amazing! We had four safes that had to be opened and three others that were locked open and needed to find the combination. Jeff set to work with an amazing bag of tools. The safes were from Four different companies dating from the late 1800s. Jeff had to drill them and find the combinations. He lets the customer become a part of what he is doing and answered an endless stream of curiosity questions with grace. Jeff is prompt, kind, and courteous. We highly recommend HKS Systems."

Scot M:

"We had a unique Safe challenge of which HKS Systems was put to the task. After many conversations on what our options were, we chose the path of greatest difficulty and not 100% guaranteed to work. We did this knowing there was a perfectly viable plan B, which most people in our shoes would opt for. After a couple of hours, HKS Systems was successful. In the end, it did save a little bit and it could have ended up costing us more. I can’t say how much I appreciate the open and honest communication throughout the whole process. We were well-informed throughout the entire process. I highly recommend their services!"

CJ Pappas:

Jim Burgess

"Jeff came highly recommended, and no surprise. Arrived as planned and did an awesome job unlocking a stubborn safe. Skilled labor is not cheap, but cheap labor is not skilled. Jeff knew exactly what the problem was and fixed it. Worth every penny. I would recommend him to anyone."

Commercial Locksmith & safe opening FAQs

Common Scenarios for Opening Locked Safes

  • Lost combination for dial locks with manufacturer assistance: We can get original combinations from some manufacturers if the serial number is available. In this case, if the original factory-set combo has not been changed, and there is no damage to the safe, the cost of opening your locked safe is minimal.

  • Lost combination for electronic locks with manufacturer assistance: We can get a reset or override code from some manufacturers if the serial number is available. In this case, if the same has not been damaged, the cost is minimal.

  • Numbers are known, unknown dialing sequence: If the safe has no damage, we can determine the opening sequence and open the locked safe at a very small cost.

  • Lost combination for dial lock, no records: We can sometimes manipulate the lock to open by hand or by machine. If the safe is undamaged, the cost will be moderate. If we are unable to manipulate the lock open, we can open the safe by drilling. This usually involves one minor hole which gets filled, and the hole is typically not in a visible location. This safe opening procedure will be a higher cost.

  • Lost keys for safe deposit type lock: We’ll drill through the keyhole; the lock will need to be replaced. The safe will not be damaged, the cost will be moderate.

  • Are "Safecrakers" a real thing?

   YES!-Opening locked safes and damaged safes is a VERY specialized field, beyond the scope of most locksmiths. There are numerous reasons why folks cannot get into their locked safe – lost combination, numbers known but dialing sequence unknown, lock failure, damage from a break-in, dried up lubrication gumming up the moving parts, fired re-lockers, disconnected bolt works, door jammed for one reason or another – the list goes on.

How Long Does It Take to Open a Safe?

The duration of opening a safe varies depending on the type and complexity. Our experienced technicians work diligently to minimize any potential delays. Count on us for a swift resolution and most importantly a USABLE safe!
