Those Diplomat safes are quite typical to find in residential houses here, plus all the knock-off variants of it. The Diplomat is nice in that you can get the key made for it just from the number on the lock itself and the combination mechanism can be examined for a minute to give you a list of all the possible numbers for each wheel, thus making the opening quite easy.


Cheers! And heippati vaan right back at ya :D I still have the safe in hand for a while, I guess I should take a look at the locking mechanism one more time to write down the number possibilities, just in case there's a chance/need to open one of those again in the future. The key-operated part of the lock actually made me sad, I was planning to have a fun little evening pick with it, but the lock opened by just entering the picks into the lock :???:

With locks of this type I formed the habbit of not bothering with the key anymore, but to just use a jiggler.
