Re: New and Just Cracked My La Gard 3330

Thanks for all the info, Oldfast. Mike right? I'm Brandan. I actually went to Home Depot and popped the hanging Master combo on the first try with your method. Bought one and it took hours. I still haven't gotten the old one I have. I bet it is just worn.

I have really been enjoying the free spinning. It was like you mentioned once one of those stressful things that seems nearly impossible until you dive in and try it. I have freespun more thab graphed now and have yet to fail. I did have one crazy long opening though but by and large been averaging probably 45 minutes. I had one pretty decent opening the other day. Ran AWR and noted a minimal but certainly notable drop around 78. Hoping for a gate signaturw I was dissipointed when there wad nevee a rise. I kept the area in mind though, knowing it is likely a partially shadowed gate. Found an unmistakable gate signature at R13 and tagged it to W2 using your consistent approach high low test, which by the way is nearly perfect! Thanks for that! After having the W2 gate. I went back to 82 on W3 with 1 and 2 at R13 and ran AR and sure enough, now unmistakable gate at 78. Bruteforced wheel one and she popped on 19-13-78 after 13 minutes and 22 seconds.Probably would've taken you 5 but I'm getting faster and am loving it!

Btw. I have a 3330 with an electric locking element (i.e. combination lock will only unlock if the locking element is retracked with a current supply). Does somebody know how to remove it? It is not really provide any benefit for manipulation.

Thanks, for your help! Problem solved.

(I disassembled the lock to make a good photo of this locking element and then the tiny bolt fell out.)

Brandan, spinnin' has brought an immense amount of joy, excitement, accomplishment... even balance into my life.
Ok, admittedly it's brought huge UNbalance to my life at times, lol... but overall it's been a really healthy thing for me.
So it's truly refreshing to see you enjoying it and getting some of this too ! I'm very happy for ya.

To the green, I'll say NOOO, not likely, lol. Though I might have a 10 minute or less opening from time to time...
they're few and far between! MANY of my openings are still a good hour. Some much less... some much more.

20-30 minute times are more than respectable. Now, if you start consistently averaging (across the board), these
20 minute openings; well, then you're in a different class altogether. See, I might crack one in 15 minutes, pretty
impressive.... UNTIL you average in my next opening that took me damn near 3 hours, lol. Then my average
time becomes, mmmm.... not so impressive. No matter, they're all fun as hell, right? Keep spinnin' my friend!
" Enjoy the journey AS MUCH as the destination."

Re: New and Just Cracked My La Gard 3330

Hey Oldfast. Thank's for the info and congratulations. I really am enjoying this! I wish there was a shop close by to me that sold mechanical lock safes so I could go mess around in there. The closest is about an hour away. I had a freespin opening on my LaGard is about 1 hour, 20 minutes, which felt pretty good. This Saturday I am going over my buddy's to have a crack at his safe for fun. It is a LaGard 5148 I believe which from my research is a lesser quality Chinese licensed LaGard 3330.
