Locksmithing/Finding a safe that doesn't lock out after wrong code entered


I need to purchase a safe with an electronic keypad lock that will allow unlimited incorrect 4 digit code entries without locking up for 5 minutes.

This is for a radio promotion where we will be inviting people to "crack the code" to win the cash inside the safe.

I can't find anyone who can sell or make me such a safe in Australia.

Nobody can sell you one because they don't exist.

However, a qualified safe technician can mount an auxiliary keypad on the safe and put a solenoid inside or use the existing solenoid.

Look for someone that specializes in safes. Here's two that I know in ACT

Hope this helps.
