    I have a winchester big daddy safe with electronic keypad. It has locked me out. I have called the manufacture mad they said it was either my relockers or possibly a nut came loose inside the door. I don't want to spend the money on a locksmith cause I have another safe and this safe is just full of personal belongings. I wanted to cut it open or drill it out but also be able to fix and use it after I perform surgery on it. Any advice or drill points? Thanks

    I would cut the back out. Patch it up and no one will ever know.

    My buddy had one in a fire and we cut through the door face out and manually unlatched it. It was a pain but everything inside was fine. It was already trashed so we weren't gentle.

    Little searching online seems to suggest waiting a while for the lock to reset. If that doesn't work, then to try the factory default code. Also, I'd suggest changing out the battery before trying again.

    Ya I have tried all that it still won't let me in. So far the going guess from licensed locksmiths is 1) re lockers went off or 2) a nut or a connecting rod got loose and has the bolts jammed where I can't open it.

    Thought about that too. But I don't think I could get the door off since there is 20 1.5" bolts around the door.
