And then write it down somewhere and/or tell someone you trust the combination.

It has happened to me. I have several safes and even more combinations, codes etc etc in my head and drew a blank on one. I had to go to the manufacture and provide them with a serial number and an affidavit from the dealer of the safe that is was mine and they provided it. Of course when they did I remembered the combo instantly. It happens so donít feel like the Lone Ranger . I soon will have a vault door that will have 2 more combos the remember.

Did I miss if it was combo or electronic? If it’s combo you should be able to call cannon with the serial number on the back of the safe, they can give the combo from that.

Yeah... Not sure how to prove Proof it’s yours though...

This is good if it is a manual dial. Not if electronic.

Probably going to have a locksmith see if they can open, or drill it to get in and replace the lock.

Going through this process now with a cannon safe. I've got quotes from 350-750 for a locksmith. They don't pick it they drill it out. To go through cannon you fill out a couple forms with serial and model. One form gets notarized and you send them 30.00. Then they send you a master code for your safe. I got the code and it will not open for me. But I'm getting closer.

Get ahold of the guy you bought the place from and write it on the back of a picture frame in the house.

Went through the same thing. I was able to call Safe company and they helped me out , since I knew the first and last number. I now have it written down in garage so that it looks like some measurements. Good luck

Try this.
3 X to right to 12
2 X to left to 24
To the right to 12.
If that doesn't work try a different you only have about a million more combinations to try. This combination works on mime every time.

All my safes have the same combo. I change all of them to something that I can remember. Easy to change the combo with a special key you can buy on amazon.

I think it cost me about $125 to switch from a locked manual lock to a new electronic.

You might try this and see if it worx


Type in the existing 6-digit code (for new safes preset code is 1-2-3-4-5-6), turn the handle counter-clockwise and pull the door open. With the door open, put the safe in the locked position by turning the handle clockwise. You should be able to see the bolts on the safe door.

*Note: If there is 1 long beep after entering the code, the lock did not recognize it and please slow down.

Press and hold the number ď0Ē until you hear a double beep.

Type in the current 6-digit code (for new safes present the code is 1-2-3-4-5-6). You will hear a double beep.

Pick and enter a new 6-digit code. You will hear another double beep.

Re-enter the new 6-digit code. You will once again hear a double beep.

*Note: If there is a long beep, the old code is still valid.

Keeping the safe door open, test out the new combination.

Hmmmmm In post #12 the OP stated that itís a combination lock and not a electronic key pad. I often wonder if people actually read the all postís before replying?

You know some gun safes are REVERSE Dials.

Lets say your combo is 10-20-30

Normally you'd go to 10-R, then 20-L, then 30R

However SOME (And I think Cannon is one), are reversed. You need to do 10-L, 20-R, 30-L

Obviously not. We are not as smart as you. Plus we have better things to do than read every single word of every single post. Can't imagine how it feels to be so perfect.
