Default Found a Floor Safe

Pulled carpet up to replace and found an old round defiant floor safe underneath. I drilled a hole to stick a camera inside to see if it was worth my time. Turns out it does have contents. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get the top off? Itís over 2Ē thick.

I believe the company that manufactured the safe has been out of business for 40 years.

My buddy had to open an old safe at work.

I believe he called the safe company and had to prove that his company owned the safe.

In your case it may be hard to do.

Maybe call a safe company or a locksmith.

A local locksmith was making me some keys last week. While we are talking, he talked about knowing guys that can open safes by listening to the tumblers, like in the movies. He also said claimed the government has parachuted the guy in behind enemy lines to break into secure locations.
