The Yale safe can be used to store valuable personal documents and is ideal for businesses that need to store large amounts of cash. Many Yale safes operate with a combination lock, protected by a four-digit combination. With the combination in hand, you can operate your safe and have a secure place to store your valuables.
- Skill level:
Rotate the dial on the front of the safe twice, once clockwise to the right and once counterclockwise to the left, stopping the dial at 0.
Rotate the dial in a clockwise direction, passing the first number of the combination four times. Stop the dial on that number on the fifth rotation.
Rotate the dial in a counterclockwise direction, passing the second number of the combination three times. Stop the dial on that number on the third rotation.
Rotate the dial in a clockwise direction, passing the third number of the combination twice. Stop the dial on that number on the second rotation.
Rotate the dial in a counterclockwise direction until it reaches the fourth number of the combination. When the dial reaches the last number, you will hear a click inside the lock and the safe door will open.
Tips and warnings
- Some Yale safe locks use an inverse order. If your lock does not open using the above instructions, reverse the order of rotations. Instead of an order of right-left-right-left, try left-right-left-right.
- When counting the rotation, do not count the revolutions of the dial, rather the times that the combination number passes the index mark.
