Opening a safe without breaking it: Previous considerations

Some can be opened with the methods that we will teach you below; but in the case of the most sophisticated, the safest thing is that you will necessarily have to resort to the manufacturer’s technical service or to a qualified professional locksmith.
To begin, you need to know the different ways in which we can open a safe:
- Opening the safe without breaking it: The main characteristic of these methods is that they do not need to inflict any damage on the structure of the safe. So we proceed to open it, using alternative methods.

How to open a safe without breaking it
In the event that you find yourself in need of opening your safe using unconventional alternatives, it is best to start with non-invasive methods. These will allow you to preserve the integrity of the safe, so you can continue to use it as usual in the future and you will not have to purchase a replacement.
METHOD 1. Tubular pick
To apply this method, you will first need to purchase a tube pick. This tool has retractable pins that adapt to both the depth of the lock and its internal shape. Therefore, the pick is molded to the cylinder and a kind of key is created.
Insert the pick into the keyhole and gently turn it from side to side until it finally opens. Use the special button, located at the end of this tool; to set the combination you have acquired when inserted into the lock. In this way, you can open and close the safe as many times as necessary.
METHOD 2. Pick the lock with picks
Insert the tension rod inside the Borja type lock, and add 3 counterweights to start. As you progress, you must place the counterweights that you think are necessary. Then, position the tensioner correctly and proceed to insert the rotary tool (also called drawer) on the opposite side of the keyhole. Now, slowly turn the spinner from one side to the other; what we are looking for with this action is to touch all the saddlebags of the lock. Repeat the work, until the first level of the locking rod security system is unlocked.
Continue repeating the above process, until you retract all the rods from the lock. As you progress, you should be placing more counterweights. Once finished, proceed to remove the slip and once achieved, the lock door will open without any problem.
METHOD 3. Combination by stethoscope
This technique is perfect for safes, whose opening mechanism consists of a dial. Possibly the only way to open this model (without using brute force) is by using a stethoscope. The method in theory is quite simple; since you will only have to look for the combination that allows you to open the safe.
To begin, you will need a stethoscope and a quiet location. Once the space is conditioned, proceed to turn the dial several times to the right; what we are looking for is to return the lock to its original state so that the dial wheels are disengaged.
Now, put the stethoscope in both ears and place the bell in a place close to the dial. To find the best space, you will have to do a couple of tests; the best place will be the one that gives you good acoustics. Then turn the dial slowly to the left; in the process you should pay close attention to two clicks that they come very often. The first clicks will sound at a uniform interval, so you will know how to distinguish the variation. Once you hear the first double click, you must move the day 180 °; exactly in front of your face.
Now turn the dial to the right again and listen carefully each time it passes the point of origin. You should be careful to listen every time that point is passed; since it is the place where the wheels park. Keep turning the dial and take note of the number of clicks you hear. Once you have stopped hearing clicks, see how many they have been. With this you will know how many digits the combination of your lock has.
Get the combination
Thanks to the previous process, now you know how many digits you are looking for; so the task will be a little less complicated. To get the combination, draw a statistical graph like the one that we will point out to you below:
- Draw a horizontal line and name it variable X, in it you will place the values that the dial has indicated. Starting from 0 to the highest value you have.
- Now, draw a vertical line and call it Axis y. Here you will mark the number of the dial in which you hear the double clicks.
The best option is to repeat this procedure 2 to 3 times. With this you will be able to compare the points in which all the graphs coincide and thus, you will surely locate the combination without so many problems. In the event that you cannot find the password, set a 2-digit margin of error to the numbers located.
On the other hand, write down all the combinations that you have entered and cross them out once you have verified that the door does not open. Don’t forget to try to open the door with each test; since this step is often forgotten.
The goal of this article is to provide you with a free, quick and easy alternative; to people who need to open a safe, in order to solve a problem.
Apply these techniques only in safes that you own or with the explicit authorization of their owner. Also, take into consideration that performing these methods in public spaces may be frowned upon by other people or by the authorities. Remember that damage to private property, theft, theft and misappropriation; they are criminal offenses.
