How to Get Replacement Keys for a Sentry Safe

Updated February 21, 2017

SentrySafe manufactures a wide variety of safe products including chests, file safes, personal, home and home/office safes, security safes, gun safes, gun cabinets and commercial safes. Besides key-only locks, some Sentry combination and electronic safes also use keys as a secondary locking mechanism. As people often lose or misplace keys, Sentry provides customers several methods of getting replacement keys -- you can order online, via telephone or through the mail, depending on your safe model or the lock type.
