Safe Opening Methods
At the safe owner’s discretion, due to time constraints, or based on the issues with your safe, there will be a specific method of entry that works best for opening your safe. Very rarely will there be multiple options for opening a safe, but when there is an available set of choices, All Safe will make you aware of the pros and cons that exist with each scenario. For the basic breakdown of the most common safe opening techniques, you can read on, or call Locksmith Pros USA and find out more about what your safe needs.
Drilling – One of the most popular solutions to a safe lockout is to drill the safe. It is a quick solution that works almost universally. The damage from drilling can often be repaired or covered up so it will not be targeted for exploitation. If you want the work done as quickly as possible, but you do not want the safe to be broken, drilling is the preferred method. This is also true for house lockouts.
Drilling the safe also allows a locksmith to gather information about the device, decode the combination, etc. If very little, or nothing is known about the safe, drilling into the safe may be the only recourse for discovering a way to get inside.
Drilling will often lead to some form of internal manipulation, but it is not the same as the surreptitious entry method commonly referred to as manipulation. Because this city is filled with oddities and people who are strapped for time, drilling is a very popular way of opening a safe in Los Angeles.
Manipulation – Safe manipulation is a surreptitious entry method, which means there will be no visible indication at all, even under close inspection, that the safe was opened without the proper protocol. Only certain safes can be manipulated open, but this is the least harmful way to open a safe. In order to have your safe manipulated open, you need to call the most experienced safe locksmiths in Los Angeles.
Prying & Cutting – Opening residential safes in Los Angeles with prying and cutting is popular among safe owners who have very cheap safes. Most cheap safes can be replaced for less money than it takes to get them open with more complicated methods. If you are under severe time constraints, prying and cutting are also very fast.
The safe will be unusable after either cutting or prying. This is not a decision that you want to take your time to consider. But some safe owners have no interest in using a safe after it is opened. If someone inherited a safe, and owning a safe does not fit with their lifestyle, the cheapest and fastest entry method might be preferred.
