Re: Cole file cabinet with safe

Try again, slow down dialing speed. Look into the peep hole on back, slowly turn your dial Left (Counter Clock-wise) minimum of four full rotation. If you don't see your gate pass under the fence, you should keep spinning the dial until you find the gate. If the wheel you're watching is not moving.., lock may be broken, or you have not made enough rotations in the same direction. Let us know what you observe.

Re: Cole file cabinet with safe

Actually start right/clockwise. That is easier in the end. Latest when you made three full turns there should be movement visible.

I've done both left and right turns, slowly, for many rotations in each direction. Beginning to think the mechanism is broken, but I appreciate all the help that was offered!

In this case you will find your answer only when you remove the back cover of the door.

Re: Cole file cabinet with safe

Hello all!

I am new to this site so before I ask my question let me introduce myself. My name is Zack and I have a cole steel company safe. I got it from a habitat for humanity restore that I used to work at. When I got it the safe door was open and I was able to figure out the combination. Since then (about 3 years ago) I have lost the combination and have been trying for a few days to open it. Inside it are a few savings bonds given to me as a kid and I think a watch which I would like to get out (and just have to combination so I can use the safe).

If anyone on this forum can help me decode the 6 digit number that is on the inside of the middle drawer that would be greatly appreciated.

The number is n100853

Again thank you in advance to anyone that can help.

Re: Cole file cabinet with safe

I just stumbled across this site tonight and signed up so I could get some info on a Cole steel safe that’s at my work. I’m a cop and the safe has been locked without the combo since the 90s. I can see there is some things in the safe from the peep holes on the side and I need to get those things out. If someone could please help me with figuring out how to decipher the numbers on the back of the safe I’d greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
