Locksmithing/National Association wall safe


QUESTION: I have owned my home for 17 years now - in my bedroom closet there is a small (maybe 10-12" long by 5-7" wide) wall safe - here are the details that I'm able to read from it (the serial number plate doesn't have a number on it) - Diebold Safe and Lock; National Association; Canton; Group 12 SPEC M1 - I would really like to open it, it says that it requires 2 keys - any ideas or local guys (Cleveland, Ohio) that could help me would be appreciated. thank you.

ANSWER: Hi Christina. Any chance you could post a pic?

It sounds like the old safe deposit type of safe.

Actually, we're in Cleveland also.

So I'd be happy to quote you on putting it back in service for you.

QUESTION: Hey Dan - thanks for the quick reply.  Here is the picture of the safe, I've found your company website and I will contact you.

Hi Christina. It takes a safe deposit type lock. The locks range in price from $75 to $175 depending on whether you want an original Diebold lock or one from an aftermarket manufacturer.

Trip charge in Cuyahoga county is $65, open and repair is $95 plus parts.
