    How to Unlock Your Safe with Your Combination

    There are 4 simple steps to unlock your safe. Take your time, and be precise.

    Use the Opening Index, which is where you line your numbers up, located at 12 O Clock.

    1. Turn Dial 4 Times to the LEFT, then stop Exactly at "Your First Number"

    2. Turn Dial 3 Times to the Right, Passing "Your Second Number" twice, then stopping exactly on "Your Second Number" the Third Time.

    3. Turn Dial 2 Times to the Left, Passing "Your Third Number" once, then stopping exactly on "Your Third Number" the Second Time.

    4. Turn Dial Slowly to the Right until the Dial Stops and unlocks.

              Thanks for the 411. I haven't opened my safe in a while and was befuddled...3 times right? times right etc...making myself crazy. Plus my safe is a little whacky, so even when I do it perfectly it won't open. Anyway thanks for the refresher.

                        This type of safe is so cumbersome and awkward to use. You could have designed a safer and simpler safe without requiring too many complicated turns of the dial which users are likely to find hard to remember.

                                  Wow are the comments here real or sarcastic? I have two dial safes one is 4 digits the other is 3.
                                  One starts to the right the other to the left. And the numbers do not have to be exact, just really close. One is a Honeywell fire safe that in addition to the dial it needs a key as well, the other is a liberty made in America safe.

                                                  Thank you so much for making this clear. We have had this safe in our basement for many years and it has been a bitch to open. There is a keyhole on the lock. Is there a way of getting a key for it and what is it for? Thanks.

                                                                                          do they always start CCW?
                                                                                          When you do the last step, do you have pressure on the main handle? (I don't understand why the dial would stop... does it stop hard, or could you accidentally go past the spot?)
