Why Is It Important To Have A Safe?

One of the biggest benefits of installing a safe is the additional security you get. Your valuables will be safe, and your mind will no longer worry about them. You will easily access your valuables, which will be safe even during an attempted break-in.

A safe protects confidential documents, cash, jewelry, family heirlooms, personal papers, and other possessions from thieves and burglars. A safe also protects them from fires or other natural disasters. You can also store external drives and USBs that hold important data.

Some items, like handguns, should not be in a child’s reach. Your licensed weapon should not be lying in the open but stored away in the safe so that it does not pose a threat to anyone.

Experts in Safe Manipulation, Cracking, Drilling, and Repair

Safes have a very solid build. They have a thick cobalt plate present between the wall and the door. The manufacturers do this to stop or slow down the drilling process. Drilling the safe is not the work of an inexperienced technician. We not only excel in drilling and repairing but also in cracking and manipulating the safe without damaging it. Our aim is not to destroy or damage the safe but also to make it usable afterward.

The Safe Drilling Process

Most safe technicians use this method to open the safe door. It is important to drill into the main part of the lock to stop functioning. The locksmith should know about how the lock’s mechanism works so that they drill into the correct place.

Every safe lock is different; hence it is essential that the locksmith first analyze its mechanics and then drill on the spot. A lot of safe manufacturers also place barriers that resist drilling. This requires them to work with special gear to penetrate the safe door. As long as the locksmith has ample experience and knowledge of how to drill correctly, they can easily open a safe and cover the drill holes.

An inexperienced locksmith with poor equipment can damage the safe while drilling. They will also not know that they can repair the safe to make it usable. We have also worked with many safes those inexperienced technicians have already drilled poorly. They will usually leave the process without finishing since they could not open it. This increases in service price since the damage has already happened. Most people do not mention that the safe was badly touched already. Make sure to mention that so that our locksmiths can work on it accordingly.

There are two ways to drill the safe:

Rear Safe Drilling

Our locksmiths use a borescope and a screwdriver to drill the safe securely. The screwdriver unscrews the plate that blocks the wheel pack. After removing the plate, our locksmith moves the bolts and unlocks the safe in front of you. The long-term experience and expertise of our locksmiths guarantee the accuracy and safety of the safe during the drilling process.

Side Safe Drilling

Our locksmith uses a ten-inch drill bit to create a hole in the side of the safe. The size of the drill bit helps us reach the door's bolt. We use the borescope to check inside the mechanics. Once we get the view inside, a punch rod does its work by pushing the door's lever. The safe opens without any damage.

It is the responsibility of a skilled locksmith to know what they need to do. Do not go to an unskilled locksmith. Otherwise, your safe will not be of any use in the future.


This is also one of the safest ways to drill a hole in the safe. Our locksmiths use a borescope in the process to view the internal mechanics of the lock. 'Scoping the change keyhole' is a common scoping method. The locksmith drills a hole that allows them to view the keyhole. They spin the dial, which allows them to observe the wheel pack and obtain the combination code through the movement alone. This is one of the safest methods to open a safe, as it leaves very few chances of damaging the safe and its lock. This technique needs expensive tools and time, so it is difficult for burglars to apply this technique during a break-in.

We are repairing a safe after the drilling process is very important. Our locksmiths ensure that they leave the safe in a good and usable position. Our repair work ensures that we leave no evidence of repairs. Safe repair carbine putty is one of the solutions that we use to repair the safe. It hardens within a few minutes and permanently repairs the safe by covering the drill holes. We also place ball bearings in the holes before applying the putty. This further solidifies the safe. Carbinex putty has a carbide compound in it which makes it stronger than welding. When we apply carbinex, it starts to harden instantly, solidifying completely within an hour.

Lock Manipulation

Lock manipulation is the technical term for the process of opening a locked safe without drilling or harming it in any way. This method is ideal because it only requires a few instruments. It is by far the most discreet technique to open a safe. It does, however, necessitate a great deal of patience. It necessitates a thorough understanding of the mechanical operations of locks in all types of safes.

Safe Lock Change

Safe unlocking, lock replacement, and combination changing and repair are all skills that our locksmiths have. Changing your safe's combination lock is a simple approach to increasing security. Replace the lock and combination when someone with access to the safe leaves your firm for whatever reason. It's a quick, simple, and low-cost procedure that only takes a few minutes. We are distinct from other locksmiths in that we do not break the lock while repairing your safe. We use the safe again, this time with confidence, to open it using the safe opening procedure.

It will be just as secure as before the repairs and opening. We have experienced locksmiths, readily available 24 hours a day and seven days a week to perform complete safe services.
