How to Open a Sargent & Greenleaf Safe


At Value Safes, we provide you with everything you need when it comes to fireproof safes, including information on how to dial open a Sargent & Greenleaf Safe Combination Lock.

Try to practice at least five times the first day you get the safe. Then at least a couple of times a day for the next several days. This will prepare you for a number of things that may happen that could hamper your ability to dial open a Sargent & Greenleaf Safe Combination Lock. For example, I have noticed that in the morning my biggest problem is I drink too much coffee, causing me to be impatient and jittery. So, after I dial it wrong a couple of times, I have to tell myself to calm down and focus.

One last item – write down the combination of your safe and keep it somewhere hidden. I write mine on the back of a picture in my office. This way you can go to it if you forget it. It also appears as a random group of numbers with no other info saying what it is. And of course, don't lock it in the safe!

Below are operating Instructions for the Sargent & Greenleaf 6600/6700 Series Three Number Combination Lock:

Turn dial slowly and evenly. Do not turn back to regain alignment if you rotate past number. If an error is made, re-dial entire combination. Do not count turns. Count how many times each number is aligned with the opening index (at the 12 o'clock position). Always view the dial and ring straight on, not at an angle. To open: (Refer to Figure A)

Step 1: Turn dial left, aligning first number with the opening index the fourth time it comes to the index.
Step 2: Turn dial right, aligning second number with the opening index the third time it comes to the index.
Step 3: Turn dial left, aligning third number with the opening index the second time it comes to the index.
Step 4: Turn dial right until dial comes to a complete stop.
Step 5: To relock and secure the combination lock, turn the dial to the left at least four revolutions.

By following these instructions, you should never have any difficulty opening your Sargent & Greenleaf Safe Combination Lock. And remember, ValueSafes is your go-to source for fireproof safes. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us!
