Lost combination? Missing keys? If you need a safe or ATM opened, please call! Do you need a combination reset? I can change a safe combination to new numbers in most mechanical dial type safe locks, new or old. I can reset the safe combination in many electronic keypad style safe locks, too. I can work on a safe or ATM... fix, open, repair, make it work! I have been a Certified Journeyman Safecracker (CJS) since 1995, when I owned AAAEconomy Safe & Lock in Rock Hill & Chester, SC. I can repair a safe lock, and change a safe combination.  If you need a safe lock fixed, please call. If you need a safe opened, please call! 

If you need a Sentry Safe opened? Need a tubular key made for a Sentry Safe? Battery changed?  I have numerous methods to open a Sentry.  I am registered with Sentry as a locksmith and they will provide me with information immediately when I call, M-F 9-5 California time. If your combination has been changed from the factory combination I can open a safe by other methods, too.  I strive to take the fastest, most cost effective route possible.

I can change a safe combination to new numbers in most mechanical dial type safe locks, new or old. I also can reset the safe combination in many electronic keypad style safe locks. I can open many different locks if you're locked out.  

Please be near the safe so I can ask some questions and you can see it when you call or text me photos if possible. Descriptions can include items like black dial, silver dial, brass dial, S&G on dial center or label, name, i.e. Mosler, Diebold, Cary, Gary, Meilink, Sentry, Brinks, Sun, Browning, Liberty, Cannon, Kodiak, Big Horn, Fort Knox, Gardall, Winchester, Old Glory, Cabelas, Safari, how old, color, gun safe, square door, round door, T handle, L handle, black handle, plastic handle, metal handle, has wheels, size, is it in an open area or in a closet, etc.  I need the best description I can get over the phone to give you an idea on what avenue to take.. 
If the dial is sticking, tight, loose, wobbly, doesn't always work, clicks loudly, is jammed, or scrapes when turning, please call me to repair it before you have to call me for a lockout! 

I need the best description I can get over the phone to give you an idea on what avenue to take..  I don't charge for an " exploratory  trip" in my local area if needed.  A trip fee may be charged further out depending on the distance I have to travel. Each job is unique. If I feel I can open a safe, I give a solid cost to do the job. It can include different tiers do to "if I find this, or if this happens, sometimes I find this broken" so if this happens, it will cost $. If this is broken and needs repair, it will cost $$. If the lock needs to be replaced, it will cost $$$, etc. I give a solid quote for each possible tier prior to getting your approval starting the job. I brief you fully.

Please message me photos of your safe front i.e. Complete front view, closeup of dial or keypad, closeup of dial/keypad including bolt operating handle, closeup of any nameplates or labels on safe, hinges, wheels, etc., it will be very helpful in identifying it.

Do you need a gun safe opened in Rock Hill, SC or the local area including York, Ft Mill, Chester, and local York County & Chester County?  I can sometimes open a gun safe if you have a malfunctioning lock without drilling. I don't know for sure unless I try. If required I can drill both mechanical & keypad locks for many different models, too. Each job is unique. 

***Please call me before you attempt to take a lock apart yourself!  I have had instances of well intentioned customers turning a molehill into an expensive mountain unwittingly, something I would have avoided. To change the batteries on many models there are methods and precautions I will be familiar with that you might not think of.  It doesn't cost that much for me to change a combination or install new batteries! If you have taken a lock apart, I can usually put it back together and reinstall it. Just please Don't Close The Door with a lock out of the safe. What's called a relocker may engage if you close the door and you'll be locked out, for sure!  Please call me before you attempt any safe repair yourself. Fore warned is fore armed! 

If you want to change to an electronic lock I can do many of them.  It will depend on the present lock used and the configuration of the safe design as to whether it can be done or not.  I consider mechanical locks to be much more trouble free in the long run and can usually install a new lock on a gun safe if it has an keypad factory installed. Some of the economy model safes do not lend themselves to any lock change at all, though. Sometimes I have to actually take the back cover off the door interior to see if it can be done. I do charge when I have to take something apart during an exploratory visit, but the cost is minimal. 

                                                                                              For the Do It Yourselfers: 

1. Follow the directions that came with the safe Exactly! 

2. When you reset an electronic safe combination be sure to Always do so with the door in the Open Position!  If something goes wrong at least we don't have to deal with opening a locked safe with an unknown combination in addition to repairing or replacing the lock when you call me.

3. If you change batteries please do so with an open door, turn the bolt control handle to the lock position With The Door Open, and check operation of the keypad several times,  making sure the handle operates each time you work the combination Before You Actually Lock The Safe With The Door Closed! Proper polarity is always important.

I recommend DuraCell batteries. I also recommend battery replacement at least annually in a home safe. This will also help keep corrosion down.

If you decide to call me to change the combination or change the batteries I will be happy to do so. 

Do Not lubricate a mechanical lock!  
Do Not lubricate a mechanical lock!  If the dial is sticking, tight, loose, wobbly, doesn't always work, clicks loudly, is jammed, or scrapes when turning, please call me to repair it before you have to call me for a lockout! 


I do my own website as a hobby and it changes all the time.  I'm a lot better at locksmithing than I am at webpage design! So please bear with me!  I'm learning!
