The combination, as written on the masking tape stuck on the safe,
slightly modified to preserve all numbers order, is as follows:
L 47 3 turns
R 25 2 turns
L to 0
However, the safe would not open. I was once shown that the combo
works, however, I cannot redo it. The safe is still open and I would
like to figure it out.
If anyone can help me, it will be GREATLY appreciated!
Mosler usually has a set number of turns on the first number as well.
Plus the directions shown look backwards.
Try Left 4 turns to 63, Right 3 turns to 47, Left 2 turns to 25 then
right 1 turn to 0 continue turning to the right till the dial stops and
you can open the safe.
Maybe you have seen it already...
There is an old Clint Eastwood movie from 1974 called "Thunderbolt and
They used a rather interesting way of opening/getting into the bank
vault. Didn't have the action, special effects like nowadays, but I
rather enjoyed it :)
If there was, you would have had at least seven threads here asking
what kind of gun:
1: How to mount it.
2: What gauge of wire to use.
3: Whether you should use a servo, solenoid or stepper motor. This would
spawn multiple sub threads, as well.
4: What metal to make the mount with.
5: Where to get the cheapest bullets.
6: How to make it self destruct before the police arrive.
7: How to explain why someone broke into your building and shot
themselves several hundred times, along with all the damage to the safe.
You can't have a sense of humor, if you have no sense.
As Richard Feynman showed, a 3-digit safe can be unlocked in minutes
even if you don't know even one digit of the combination. 5-number
combo safes take a little longer, he could usually get them open in
It isn't that hard to change those IF you needed to (I would since the
original owner knows the current combination)
You need the correct change key and the correct directions. Or just pay
a smith to change it.
