What’s up YouTube this is Jacob from International Precision Engineering. Today I thought I would show you what’s inside this safe, how it works, talk about what the mechanisms are. If you knew what was inside it, how you could beat it, pick it, crack it, whatever you want to call it. The story on this safe is a little bit interesting. And some good news for you guys, I’ve been poached! As you’ve probably seen there’s a lot of buzz around Intel – well… we negotiated and I no longer consult, even if I wanted to I couldn’t. It’s gonna be a lot a lot better for you and I could do a lot more projects like this that might be more interesting to a YouTube croud. Anyways – We bought a house here in Phoenix and this safe came in it. I ripped it off the wall because I couldn’t find any information on it. I don’t even know how much it’s worth, where you would have gotten it, how much it would have cost. Especially for this company Century, which is in every Home Depot. I mean this is kind of the go-to cheap safe for homeowners, so it’s amazing that I can’t find any information on this model. The only thing that I was able to find was an in-wall safe, that would let go behind a picture, that has this dual lock – So it has this key to open it instead of a handle – and it has a combination lock. Like I said the only thing I could find was the in-wall safe and even with that, nobody showed pictures of what’s behind it, the lock mechanism, absolutely nothing. So I even to do the “put-your-ear-up-to-it and-spin-the-dial” and things. You know, I’m not a locksmith, so in the end it’s probably a one-hundred to three-hundred dollar safe. So I just ripped it off the wall, and luckily it wasn’t into any studs. They just had it into the drywall, but they screwed it into a finished cabinet that was in the closet. Not only did I ruin the wall on the back because I couldn’t get to cut the screws, it ruined the paneling and the whole shelf. It’s kind of disappointing that they didn’t just put a post-it note with the combination. Anyways, Bonus to you guys – Let’s cut it in half and check it out! All right here’s what’s inside! We got the key, which directly actuates the bolt. We’ve got the combination lock that turns your dials [gates], and what’s removed here is this little tin shield that’s really just for aesthetics. If I were going to crack this lock, after looking at it, I would 1) drill a hole here, 2) drill a hole through the tin cover and 3) pull this pin out. Then what would happen is the bolt would come out far enough to go past the … I don’t know what they’re called … the disks here [gates]. 1) The bolt would come out, 2) it would slide out, and 3) the door would open . All I would have to do is, 1) know where this pin was, 2) I drill two holes, 3) pull the pin and 4) the door would open. Even if you didn’t have the key, because the key actuates through this little cam thing and if this came out, it would just open even without the key. So really having having drawings or images of this safe you could in twenty minutes, if you had access to the top, you could you could defeat this safe. But again, like I said, I couldn’t even find any information on the safe whatsoever. So the likelihood of finding drawings or what mechanism are in the safe is highly unlikely. Zooming in on the combination lock you can see that the back wheel is connected directly to the dial. These pins are what turns the separate wheels so you can move the pin around to change the combination. There’s probably instructions how to do that, which I don’t have! What you have to do, for example, to get the safe to open is line up all the deep slots … like this. Now you can see – all three slots are in a line and the bolt can slamming in. Looking at this closer there’s a couple interesting features: 1) this back wheel is bigger than the other two, so if you come in here and turn this and then tension the key and try and listen for the pin to drop, the only thing you’re going to feel is each of these three slots in the back wheel. You could feel this by just tensioning the key. The only plausible combinations for that last wheel are each of these three spots. So now if there’s a hundred points on the dial, it takes the it [the combination] down to 3 possible numbers. Another thing you can do is turn the dial and feel how much play there is and find out that -oh- I’m looking at about five digits on the combination of play. Now each of the hundred spots on my dial really turn into twenty right. So I can be plus or minus two and a half off and still have this work. Another thing you’ll notice is these are tapered on the correct ones to help you out and they’re not over here so there’s a lot more play when the combination is right then when you’re just at a false. Because this wheel the back wheels bigger you can’t really sit there and listen for pins to drop like you could in a key lock or things like that so having knowing that if there’s 20 possible combinations on the first two numbers 20 times 20 is 400 – so 400 possible combinations and 3 on the back so 1200 possible combinations to open lock. Now I could probably run through that in a couple hours just doing it. The problem is you have to clear the lock every time. You have to come back, you have to pass the second number, and if you do it wrong it’s, well… you won’t know, so you really got to be good and patient, take your time – But you could do it, you could definitely do it!
