Two Fichet Carat grade 5 opening

Fichet Carat grade 5

We had these two Fichet Grade 5 safes to open and remove in London, both Fichet safes were dual locking and had been in the building in Knightsbrige for a number of years and the combinations and keys had been lost over that time, the combi action lock is a 7 number fichet clicker lock, and the Key lock is Fichet M3b style locks, we had to drill a small hole to decode the combinations and then picked the two high security Fichet safe locks.

The customer also require these safes to be removed from site so we ara ged for them to be removed from a basement area.

Chubb Bankers Safe Lost Keys

My main skill is opening high security safes and vaults, so I also open safe within the Trade for other Locksmiths or Safe companies. This safe was a Chubb Bankers and also known as a Chubb Isolator. The way this safe works is the handle is free spinning and when the locks are open they engage the clutch mechanism that then engages the handle so can retract the bolts. As with most safe the vital parts are protected by a Glass plate that is connected to the anti burglar devices. There are a few models of the Chubb safes that use the same setup these are Chubb Bankers, Chubb Bankers Treasury, Chubb Monarch, Chubb Renown, Chubb Resolute, Chubb Sovereign, Chubb Trident, Chubb Vanguard, Chubb EDR, Chubb Financier. The differences are the barrier materials inside the wall and door to hinder drilling, cutting or explosive attacks. On this Chubb Banker Safe the digital safe lock was defeated and key lock was picked open and new keys were made and digital lock was replaced.

Anti Burglar Devices inside safes and vaults

Above is a Anti Burglar device as found in some old Ratner safes. Anti burglar devices are found in most safes and vaults. Modern anti burglar devices include glass or a thermal link to stop.an inexperience thief, Locksmith or Safe Engineer from opening the safe or vault. If these devices are set off by an inexperienced person. Then the safe will lockup further and require a real Safe Engineer to come and open it. At Key Elements Safe Engineers we specialise in opening safes and vaults and have done so for over 25 years. kelocks1@gmail.com

Unknown code on Fichet Safe

This Fichet Carina safe was left inside a property in London and when the new owners took over they were unable to open the safe. On arrival the safe was upside down so we turned it over and opened the Fichet digital safe lock and replaced with a new lock. If you need a safe open please email kelocks1@gmail.com

Tann Bankers Quality Safe

Had this Tann with two 10 lever locks where the keys had been lost. I picked open both locks so no need to drill this safe. Picking the lock is a better option than drilling as Tann safes fitted anti burglary devices to there safes such as glass an thermal links. Although Tann is not a house hold name it is known in the trade for having g made some of the best safes and vaults around. I make a lot of my own safe picks so for this lock it is two foot long so as to be long enough to open some of the thicker vault doors. If you need a safe or vault opened please contact us at kelocks1@gmail.com
