A combination safe is an essential piece of equipment for any small business that deals with cash on a daily basis. An owner or manager must remove cash from register drawers and add small change dozens of times a day, and a safe is the only secure place in which to keep all that cash. People unfamiliar with combination safes may find a professional version complicated to use, but following a few simple rules will make the process quick and confusion-free.
Turn the dial to the right three or four turns and stop on 0. Find the first number in your combination. Turn the dial to the left, passing this first number two times and then ending on it the third time around.
Find the second number in your combination. Turn the dial to the right, passing the second number once. Stop when you hit the second combination number the second time.
Turn the combination dial to the left and stop on the third number in the combination, without passing it at all. Slow down turning the dial when you near the third number. If you accidentally pass the third number you foul the combination, and will have to start all over.
Turn the handle after the third combination number has been reached, then pull on the door to open it.
