I have a Sentry safe with a 3 code combination and key.
I have never touched the combination wheel so I just use the key to unlock it.
I accidently moved the wheel a bit (no more than 40 places out of 100). I have tried moving the wheel back again, but it wont open on any of the number that it could have been on. I presume moving it backwards moved it off the other two numbers of the combination, so I would have to put in the whole combination again. Is this right?
Of course the problem is that I don't know what the combination is. Apparently it was in the manual that came with it, but I don't know where that is - it might even be in the safe.
Sentry have a facility for finding out what the combination was (you have to send them stuff like the serial number and things signed by a notary to confirm that you own the safe, and of course some money), but that would take a long time.
I would also like to try cracking the code by brute force (going through all the possibilities). I know it would take a very long time, but I'm willing to dedicate a few days to it. The only reluctance that I have is that I would like to confirm before I start that there is nothing I can do even though it should have only moved off the correct combination by a little bit.
