Locksmithing/Seargent & Greenleaf safe


I read your advise on the data safe the guy had in a house he bought.
I have a safe we (at work) wanted to save so I cut the back and the combo was on a paper in the safe and nothing else.
Now with the combo I still cant get it open!!
The combo says R-4-0, L-4-56, R-3-27, L-2-62
This dont match the 4,3,2,1, that you told Jorden.
I have tryed every possable combo 5,4,3,2, and 4,3,2,1, still no luck
I think Im having trouble clearing it and or where dou you start the combination at 0 or just clear it by going back and forth and go from where ever to the first 0 and that is 1-0 then go 2-0, 3-0, 4-0 and that is the first number!

The dialing instructions you have are confusing.

Can you send a pic of your safe showing the whole front of it and one showing just the dial and handle?

It may be a 4 wheel safe lock. In which case it might be 5432 last turn to 0 and then turn handle.
