Safe Lock Servicing – The Mechanical safe lock is a very intricate mechanisms that requires maintenance from time to time to prevent failure which would result in you not being able to get your safe open!  I found usually the type of lockout is either a mechanical one or an operator lockout.

Mechanical lockouts could be caused by water damage or a failed part in the lock, possibly the battery needs replacement or something jammed the door.

Operator lockouts are typically caused by dialing the wrong combination, making a mistake in the sequence dialing, or forgetting the combination completely.

We recommend having you mechanical safe lock serviced every 12 – 18 months for those that use it frequently. For the infrequent user every 24 – 36 months is a good service interval. If the safe has become increasingly difficult to open DO NOT LOCK THE SAFE!!! The next time you lock it could be your last!!  Call us for a lock service immediately so you will not be locked out of your safe.

Old Safes Going Digital – Many of you have perfectly good quality safes but turnover of staff means frequent lock changing is uneconomical. By replacing your existing key lock to a modern electric lock sargentandgreenleafusers can be added or removed at the touch of a button. Other benefits can include time lock and time delay abilities, audits to monitor users, single or dual code access.

Service Contracts – Service contracts are offered and advised in high use safes where a lock out situation can be extremely inconvenient. This would avoid lock out situations which would result in loss of trade, possible security risks and a safe opening needed (an un-necessary and costly experience).
