How to easily open hotel/home safe.

Post by huahin4ever » Sat Feb 04, 2017 9:05 am

We moved into our house here in Thailand and the house have a hotel style safe. We didn't know the code or have the extra key to unlock the safe when you don't rember the code. Well I forgot all about this safe since it is in one of the guest bedrooms, until yesterday when I started searching the web forba solution on how to get it open. Well, it isn't actually science, but shockingly easy to open. As you can see from the Youtube video, the solution I used was to hit on top of the safe and at the same time try to twist the knob to open position. Did it a couple of times, and voila, my safe is now open.

After this I changed the batteries and reset the codeby using a switch on the inside of the door.

Well one thing is for sure. I do not think of hotel safes as much insurance for my valuables anymore.

Frightening when I think I have a very similar safe at my house. The hardest job would be for the thief to get to it across all the junk kept in the room.

Well, and do not order a locksmith in Thailand to try to open/replace the lock on your safe. They will only completely destroy it!Image

It was a friend of mine, and he had to pay 500 baht. And of course the cost of a new safe and removal/installation he has to pay himself. TTT!
