Re: Cole file cabinet with safe

One more question: Where are the contact points? On mine they are at 99/11 and due to the square spindle +25, +50, +75. I suspect, that they vary from lock to lock, or perhaps more likely from dial to dial.

Re: Cole file cabinet with safe

Hello, I bought a Cole file cabinet with a safe door inside a locking door for $20.The safe is currently open. It has a 3" dial and inside the second drawer is the number N-359535. It would be nice to be able to use the safe portion if someone could help me decode this somehow. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Cole file cabinet with safe

Hello,

My grandmother recently passed away and left behind an old Cole Steel Equipment Safe inside a locked cabinet. My father asked me to take a crack at the safe, but I’m not following how to do this myself. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

The safe has a 3” dial and has what I’m guessing is a serial number of N-502669. Is there a directory of combos based on this information? Or could I solve this myself with some type of decoder pin.

Any guidance here would be much appreciated.

Best regards,
HT

Re: Cole file cabinet with safe

Does it work also on other safes?

Not to my knowledge but someone will chime in with their ring decoder experiences.
