First successful attempt at safe manipulation

So tonight I was at the shop waiting for a customer to call me back to give me the go ahead on beginning of making keys for his car when I started playing with a Sentry 3 wheel safe. (Yes I know it's only a Sentry) I started by taking the wheel around about 10 times to the left and listening for drop in points. Then I went 10 times to the right listening to the same thing and averaged out where my numbers should be by the tolerances for a Sentry (Approximately +/- 5 numbers). I knew I had the right sequence in mind when I started getting a lot of drag and a loud clicking for the final turn to the right to unlock. I kept working the dial a little further to the left by about 2 numbers each time and then back to the right expanding by about 2 numbers each time in a back and forth motion. Eventually I got it to grab. All in all it took me about 25 minutes to open it, and I had no previous knowledge of any of the numbers of the combo. It was a pretty damn nice feeling even though it was just a Sentry.

Opening a safe blind regardless of the brand is still amazing. Damn fine work! Makes me want to give my POS safe a go at it.

I've worked on a couple government safes and I don't like it. I would love to own one because they are stout etc. but I hate working on them.

Re: First successful attempt at safe manipulation

I'm a couple months late on this post... but great job Matt! Sentry or not, how exciting!

I'm also one of those people very interested in learning manipulation, but never have.

Might have to try cracking my Sentry gun safe... Never thought of trying that before, but now I'm intrigued.

Thank you. That was a year ago now and I have not given a serious try to manipulating any more safes. At my new job though we are taking old safes and practicing drilling and opening. I love learning new stuff and I love that the new job offers so much more.
