The jackscrew that pulls the lock stripped out, but not completely, do I sat there and kept actuating it.

It finally caught and I was able to open it up.

Then getting the safe company to send me a replacement part was almost impossible.

"WE have to do the installation.."

"No, you really don't..."

I eventually won and replaced the part.

I was told that Home Owners Insurance covers safe cracking (by the safe company that moved my safe to our current house - 1700lbs). I don't know if that is true or not.

You must have that HULK grip, stripping a jack screw takes a formidable amount of twist strength...glad you were able to get it fixed.

When I first got my safe I spent a lot of time fiquring out how to defeat the locking mechanism in case the lock failed and I had to break in.

That picture above?

It's a little TINY screw that pulls the locking tab. Honestly, pretty disappointing given the grade of lock and safe.

Fortunately I have not needed to find out. I know exactly where to drill a 1/4" hole through the door to block the re-locker and then remove the lock to access the safe.
I ordered the safe with a basic numeral pad and later converted it to a bio-metric pad. Mine is a BSL 0608, apparently it has been upgraded to a
