I was at my fathers house this past weekend, and when he bought it (prior owner was a jewler), it came with a Meilink safe. Nothing of value in it now, and he generally leaves it unlocked.
But you know me, I decided to take the door apart. There was a UL tag on the back of the door mentioning relockers, and sure enough, a simple inspection revealed a spring loaded device, that if released would lock the bolts permanently.
But what I did not understand was what would it take to get this thing to release. It was an L shaped affair that appeared to be spot welded together.
Anybody know what triggers this sort of thing?
