After following a few simple directions and practicing a couple times, you should be able to open your Sentry 1250 safe with ease and store or recover your valuable items.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Get the three-number combination for your safe if you have it written down and not memorised.

  2. 2

    Twist the dial on the safe counterclockwise twice past the first number of the combination, then stop on the number.

  3. 3

    Twist the dial clockwise past the second number, then stop on that number.

  4. 4

    Twist the dial counterclockwise to the last number and open the safe.

Tips and warnings

  • This can take some practice, so if you miss the first time around, just spin the dial counterclockwise five times and restart at Step 2.
