On the 1310 Sentry safe door there is a black metal cover. Remove that and you will find the locking mechanism.Just turn the dial while your looking at the inside and you will find out where the number meet up

I bought my sentry safe at a garage sale. It is a sentry model s3110. My nephew accidentally closed the door and locked the combination lock with the combination written on a piece of paper inside

Due to the nature of safes, you will need to find a locksmith to have the safe opened, otherwise everybody and their brother would be asking for the combination to a safe that does not belong to them !
God bless your efforts.

How to open sentry valueguard safe 1330 1744403

I do not claim to be an expert, however I recently opened a valueguard 1330 that had been sitting at work abandoned and forgotten for sometime. I used simple hand tools for this, this method is crude but it worked. The underside of the safe has a plug in it which is where the factory fills the safe with an insulation that sets and hardens giving structure and weight. I imagine there is a better way to remove the insulation but at this time i used a hammer. It looks much the same as chalk with a harder consistency, a minute or two of hammering broke up most of it which was then cleared out by hand. underneath is a plastic liner and the inner floor of the safe. Once again I just had hand tools at the time, I used a hammer and punch to perforate the steel in a circular pattern. once this was finished a few solid strikes should be enough to bust through. Please keep in mind a drill would have been optimal, also the hole needs to be large enough for you to put you arm in. On the inside portion of the door there is a cover over the lock assembly held in by one screw, on this safe it was a combination flat head 1/4" drive screw. With the cover plate removed you should now be able to see three plates on a central axis, each plate has a slot that needs to alined with the lock assembly for it to travel. This is incredibly easy when working by feel alone. With all three alined you should be able to turn the handle on the outside counter clockwise and open your safe. I hope this helps anyone not wanting to pay a locksmith or sentry, your safe should still be viable except for the arm sized hole. I would suggest a new safe. Enjoy!
