    These fire safes are designed to melt around the edge when exposed to high heat. They are not designed to prevent picking. If all else fails you should be able to pry right at the lock and pop it open. You will probably ruin the safe but as a last resort keep it in mind.

    I opened a safe like that by drilling the Hinge pins caps off then pried from
    the hinge side. It was left behind in an Apt., the guy was a Pro Gambler.

    The guy I opened it for sold it broken to the landscaper. LOL

    It had Herbs in and NOT the cooking kind!

    so, just a thought, ever see the trick where people were opening bike locks with the casing from a bic pen? Might as well give it a try.
    I have not tried that, so definitely something I might try! It does sound empty, but the story I read about the guy selling what he thought was an empty safe for $100 that had $26,000 in it, makes it impossible lol I have to know now!

    I picked up a safe just like that. We drove a Crowbar into the opening side with a sledge and just pried it open. Took less than 5 minutes. The safe sounded empty but there was an envelope with over $600 bucks in it. Cha ching! Must open it before you let it go. Was quite the surprise for us and the guys got a little bonus at the end of the day.

    Small thermonuclear device. 3-5 kiloton range. Don't do it in your garage, though.

    Deleted post...

    Added.....Nevermind...I was reading through fast and misunderstood.....

    Beat the lock off....Stick a punch in the remaining hole or something and drive the rest of the lock out that is on the inside....
    Just throwing out random ideas! It would have been driving me insane by now! Get tough with it if you haven't gotten in yet! I wouldn't be able to sleep until I was in that thing!

    Or....get the drill and camera out(the kind on the flexy shaft) and unlock it by using the dial and camera...I saw it in a movie?

    Long story short.....We had a gun safe we didn't want ruined, we cut the bottom open, pulled the shelves out, I crawled up in side, removed the pad on the door, took the lock apart, and opened it. redid the combo. welded a plate on the bottom, and I'm still using it today. Everyone wants to go in the door, on even the better safes the bottom or back is easier. Especially, if you want to save it. Your past that, just throwing it in here incase you run into one you want to keep.

    I have used a Milwaukee cutoff grinder with metal cutting blades, get the thin ones, the cutters, not the grinder. Start with a small square, so you can look inside without all of the effort.

    Yep, this is the way I'd go. A few rips with my Makita, and done.

    I guess your still trying to get this puppy open? If you don't mind destroying the safe a hand full small cutoff wheels from harbor freight and the air grinder will do the job.

    Or just drill a 1/4" hole on the face next to the dial at the 2 o'clock position. so you can see where the gates line up. Them fill the hole with JB weld, the same thing works on master locks (but drill from the back side), but for them I prefer the rubber hammer and and rope to keep it under tension during the strike to open them (at this point you need do do a little math to get the master lock combo).
