A Safecracker also known as a Safeman or Boxman is a professional who opens safes when the owner can no longer open them. It is not uncommon at all for people to suddenly forget the combination to a safe they have owned for many years. Maybe the combination to the safe was lost, or maybe a burglar tried to break into the safe and broke the dial or handle off or both. Perhaps the combination just stopped operating all of the sudden due to a malfunction. You may have obtained a safe from a garage sale or auction and now want it opened to find out if anything of value was left inside.
A Safecracker can open your safe with the least amount of damage as possible, remove any broken parts, and install a new lock or locks if needed. Many safes only require a small 1/4″ hole to be drilled into the lock in order to unlock them. Some safes also have a key which in some cases may require the cylinder to be replaced unless we can pick the lock open. If we can pick the lock, then we can usually rekey the lock and cut new keys.
Our Safecracker can:
- Open safes regardless of what type of safe you have. (Many safes can be opened with no damage at all, others must be drilled and then can usually be repaired and put back in service.)
- Repair your safe if it stops functioning properly or gets difficult to operate.
- Service your safe to help prevent a costly lockout situation.
- Move your safe no matter how big or heavy it is, to a different location and bolt it securely to the floor if necessary.
- Change the combination on your safe. (Electronic locks and Dial locks)
- Install electronic push button locks on many safes if you prefer not to have to dial a combination, then you can just enter your code into a keypad and then open the safe door. (We do recommend mechanical dial locks over the electronic however.)
Call us for all your safe needs, such as:
To purchase a new or used safe.
To have your unwanted safe just hauled away.
Your safe becomes difficult to open or close. (NEVER slam or force a safe door closed… if it is difficult to operate at all, just leave it open and call us, it will save you the additional costs to get it open.)
You begin having to dial the combination more than once to unlock your safe.
The safe has not been serviced within the last year. (Two years if the safe is opened less than once per month)

You have only been turning your safe dial a couple of numbers each day to lock and unlock it, and now somebody came along and turned the dial all the way around and you have no idea what the combination is or how to unlock the safe.
