What is safe cracking?

safe cracking methods Safe cracking is the process of unlocking a safe without the key or combination. Safes are usually being cracked after a lost combinations, lock malfunctions, fire or burglary attempts.

Who unlock safes?

Thinking about safe cracking probably wakes up memories about those crackers in the movies. Actors veritably able to crack safe using a stethoscope without any brutal break in and entry tools. Well, this is not impossible, but the safecrackers who have masterminds that skill are very few.

In reality, in most cases, the skill set required to unlock a safe with no damage will cost more than the safe itself. For the average locksmith, restoring the safe combination or key can take hours which is very expensive.

How to unlock a safe?

Different methods exist to crack a safe, depending on its security level and the condition of the locks:

  1. Lock manipulation - Is the process of unlocking a locked safe without defacing or drilling the safe. Instead, you use the combination lock against itself to track down the code.
  2. Try-out combinations - Most safes initialized by the manufacturer with try-out combination by the industry standard. The safe owner should reset the numbers after purchasing the safe. Many owners simply buy the safe and never change the code. By contacting the safe manufacturer, the safecracker can get the try-out combination.
  3. Day Lock - Many safe owners keep their safes a 'day lock'. To unlock the safe users need to dial all the numbers of the combination. However, to close it many times they cancel only one number. This means that to open the safe, the safecracker just need to guess the last number of the combination.
  4. Drilling - Is the most common method used to manipulate and open a sized safe. The most direct method is to drill into the lock face to reach the drive cam or lever. Then using a punch rod to bend or push them out-of-the-way and release the bolt. Many safes use heavy cobalt plates to slow down or prevent drilling. Therefore a diamond or titanium bit used and sometimes the process might take hours to complete.
  5. Torching - This method uses the heating of Oxy-acetylene, Plasma cutters or thermal lances torches. The safecracker bore a holes into the safe to expose the lock mechanism or the safe contents.
  6. Explosion - Using nitroglycerin jam shots to blow open a safe. This method is low on discretion and high on success, quick and effective. However not every content of the locked safe can survive an explosion.

However for many safes in the market, the type of ability required to unlock the safe with no damage might cost you more the safe itself. Therefore it might make more sense to destroy the safe which will be less pricy and buy a new one.

A second option will be safe manipulation that designed for recovery. This method involves drilling and maybe partial dis-assembly of the safe. Then the safe recovered by welding, repair or replace the drilled/broken part of the safe.
