Safe manipulation is the type of safe cracking that you see in James Bond movies when a safe won’t open. Unlike in movies, it is less about having a stethoscope, and more about knowledge, skill & practice.
Manual combination locks are the type of locking mechanism that can be manipulated without harming the safe.
In cases that demand more serious techniques, a hole will have to be drilled in the safe. Tools and probes will then be inserted to manipulate the bolt work or locking mechanism of the safe door.
Drilling open a safe
This method is often used when a lock has completely malfunctioned. This is why we recommend preventative maintenance.
If you have made the mistake of purchasing a poor quality safe, or invested in a product that is fire resistant but not burglary resistant, you may be able to bounce your safe open. If your cheaply built safe won’t open by the proper means, it may still open this way.
This method can only be used on safes with functioning bolt work. If your safe won’t open, due to an issue with you forgetting or not having access to the combination, a broken key, or a battery that has died in your digital lock, then it can be assumed that your bolt construction is intact.
To bounce a safe, you simply strike the top while turning the handle simultaneously. The internal components of the locking mechanism are temporarily oriented to their proper opening position, as the bolt work in the door jumps from the sudden impact. A similar principle can be applied when using magnets also. Visit our lock instructions page to view a video of how this is done.
Some electronic locks occasionally have override codes preinstalled by the manufacturer. Some safe brands that occasionally have these are defiance and diplomat.
