Safe Lock Manipulation Service in NYC by Sherlocks Locksmith
Lock manipulation requires a level of intelligence and intricacy that other safe opening methods don’t. You’ve probably heard of the terms “going the high road” and “taking the low road.” Many locksmiths consider lock manipulation to be “taking the high road,” because lock manipulation is the purest form of safecracking. The technical word for the technique of opening a locked safe without drilling or damaging it in any way is lock manipulation.
This technique is perfect since it requires very few instruments. It is by far the most discrete and safe opening method. However, it does need a lot of patience. It requires a complete understanding of the mechanical movements of locks in different safe variations.
Sherlocks Locksmith trains their locksmiths with modern and updated equipment and techniques. Our trusting relationship with customers and years of experience prove our expertise. We are available 24/7 all over New York. Call us to get a free consultation!

Why Should You Keep a Safe?
It is critical that you protect your valuables from any dangers or threats. Safes provide the level of security that you require. You can install them into walls, underground, or as a standalone safe. Safes are gaining immense popularity as they safeguard your belongings from fires, floods, and other natural catastrophes.
Our services differ from those of other repair services because your safe stays secure both before and after we operate on it. We move, fix, and open the safe without damaging or destroying it, preventing the need to buy a new one. After completing all of the steps, you can use it as safely as before.
Our locksmiths undergo a rigorous background check, so you can sit back and relax while they work on your safe. We work hard to maintain a trustworthy connection and high-quality services so that your safety is our top priority.
How Safe Lock Manipulation Works
Our locksmith first establishes the lock’s contact points. Like the wheels in the wheel pack, the drive cam has a notch. When it comes around, though, this slot slants to allow the lever and fence to pass through. There is a tiny click when the lever’s nose makes contact with this slope. Our initial goal is to locate this item. We can learn which numerals on the dial face correspond to the left and right sides of the diagonal notch by listening for the click. This is the contact area, and it is the first step in figuring out the combination.
Any number between one and eight is in the combination. A wheel corresponds to each of these numbers. Our next goal is to figure out the number of wheels in the pack; because the safecracker knows the contact area, he dials opposite numbers. The dial is then let to rest. This area is “parking the wheels.”
We now are aware of the wheels and contact area, so we reset the lock by turning it many times to the right and slowly rotating the dial to the left. The locksmith listens for the sounds to learn the location of the contact area. The safecracker records this on a graph and then repeats the process. The contact area will change somewhat each time the operation initiates from a different point. The locksmith repeats the technique in three-step intervals.
The final graph depicting the contact points will converge on itself at various points. These convergence locations should correspond to the number of wheels. The graph then shows where the wheels should align, but it will not show what sequence they should align in. We then call all possible combinations of the numbers till the safe opens.
Manipulation of electronic safe locks for a forgotten combination is futile. At best, we can extract a list of the most often used keypad buttons. Then, we note the list of numbers based on those most frequently used buttons.
This method is nearly useless as electronic safe locks sometimes have a standard time delay option and failed attempt lockout duration. Unless the manufacturer shares a factory reset code, drilling the safe is frequently the best solution.
This is where Sherlocks Locksmith can help. We offer no excuses to provide the best services to our clients. Our vast network and relationship with manufacturers helps us perform solution-oriented work.
The most often used mechanical safe locks for commercial and higher-end domestic safes are Group 2 mechanical safe locks. Experts can modify these locks with enough effort, tools, and expertise. In some situations, the safe opens in as little as an hour, but it can take as long as four to six hours. It depends on the numerous mechanical variables that each lock contains. Some modifications make manipulating the lock easier, while others take more effort and time.
Typically, the expense of opening a safe, whether through manipulation or drilling, is the deciding factor. To manipulate a safe, a locksmith usually charges by the hour. Drilling a safe is often charged at a set amount that includes skill, time, equipment, and breakage.
Manipulation should, in theory, be less expensive than drilling to unlock a safe. There isn’t much of a difference in practice. Safe lock manipulations are normally reserved for less complicated safes. In this situation, we give customers a flat rate.
Auto-dialers are costly, but they can recover a secure combination in around 13 hours. The safe connects to the units configured to run. The computer generates 100,000 combinations automatically and detects when the lock is open. It then saves the combination, locks the safe again, and sends an email to the locksmith about it. The computer does not show the results and operation to prevent unauthorized access.
We keep the auto-dialer and safe in a secure location to protect data. Auto-dialers are often ineffective in high-traffic places, such as cash handling safes in high-volume retail or restaurant, unless the locksmith operates on them outside business hours.
Consider the following essentials when opting for Safe Lock Manipulation Service
- Using safe lock manipulation to unlock a safe is a real alternative.
- The charges of both manipulation and drilling are almost the same.
- Electronic safe locks are routinely drilled if the electronic issue cannot be externally rectified or the factory reset code isn’t accessible.
- Auto-dialers are fantastic, but they aren’t available in every lock store. They are not used on manipulation-proof locks because of the lock’s design. They also won’t work with direct drive safe locks.
- It is very easy to manipulate direct-drive safe locks, and they can usually open in under half an hour. It takes roughly 15 seconds to pry open the safe.
- Users sometimes forget their combination. You can either memorize the combination or keep it extremely safe where no one can know. Some users keep the combination somewhere safe, while others encrypt it digitally.
- A lot of safes are manufactured in other countries, too. The safe price may differ depending on the services.
Several factors prevent lock manipulation:
- Many GSA-rated safes prevent lock manipulation
- Failures due to mechanical issues
- Older, badly maintained locks might obstruct proper functioning, making manipulation more difficult
- Poor engineering
- When a locksmith make changes to the lever or lock wheel
- Altered and damaged locks
- Time constraints also prevent lock manipulation
