Locksmithing/Safe dialing



Safe 2
Safe 2  
I have a double door herring hall and marvin safe. Combination is written on the floor joist above, just need to know the dialing sequence on this particular safe. I have pics if that will help

This was around the time that Diebold bought HHM. It probably has a Diebold lock in it.

I would go with 4 times left (counterclockwise) to the first number, 3 times right to the second number, ( do not worry about passing numbers etc. just go to the second number 3 times) 2 times left to the third number.

Then turn slowly right until the dial stops and won't turn any further. Probably around 85 give or take a couple of numbers.

Then turn the handle and pull.

If that doesn't work, let me know.
