Sentry Safe makes a variety of safes for home and business use. Combination safes allow the user to open the safe without the need for keys. However, in cases where the owner forgets the combination or an emergency situation where the owner is unavailable, certain Sentry Safes are designed to function with a special override key that opens the safe without the combination. Using an override key is the only way to open a Sentry combination safe with only the key.
