Opening Stuck Safe A friend passed away a few years ago and his wife did not know the combination to his gun safe. We found the original card with the combination after going through a lot of papers. The safe had a S&G key locked dial type which I was familiar with as I have a similar unit. Trying the combination in every manner possible would not unlock the safe. I worked on this safe many times over a period of weeks. Even called the safe manufacturer to check on the combination. That is not easy to do either. The last time I was trying the combination, I smacked the front of the door in frustration and something clicked inside the safe. Then the dial would turn and unlock the safe. Everything was fine after that and the safe combo worked every time. Took his guns out, inventoried everything, and finally sold the safe for his wife. So trying the smack method may help!
