    This pisses me off. I can't remember it for the life of me. Anyone else ever been in the same boat? [laugh]

    Now imagine trying to open that in the middle of the night, under pressure, while you are half asleep.....

    This is why I took the manual with the combination in it and put it into another safe that I can open with a key. [laugh]

    BTW if you call the manufacturer and give them the data, they can tell you how to get it in the mail... I think you will have to fill out a form and get it notarized though, and you may have to show proof of purchase.

    It depends on the safe. If it's a mechanical S&G or LaGard, there is no record once you change it. If it's a name brand "Group I" combination pad, there *may* be a non-resettable override code specific to the lock.

    If it's a Group II or IIm dial and you have 30 hours, get your hands on an ITL auto dialer.

    If you want to open it in 15 minutes, and it's a S&G or LaGard Group II (but not IIm or I), get a Mas-Hamilton soft drill (which is just a fancy term for their autodialer)

    I was at my cousins and he was going to show me some stuff. Problem was he forgot the password AND how many turns in each direction ( lol ) . Took him along time to get around to doing it. I'd be on that s*** the next day.

    Once you figure out the combo, email it to yourself at a Gmail account (or leave an unsent email in your draft folder).

    I forgot the combo to a safe that I hadn't opened in about 6 months. Figured it out eventually, but it took awhile.

    You could try hypnosis. That might help.

    Or you could get one of these:

    Rob, I was thinking more along the lines of a Sentry or some "typical gun safe" lock, where the manuf keeps the combo on file. (and I don't think the user can change the combo, at least not without going out of their way to do it.. and if they did, they'd probably write down the new combo. :)
