A Sentry safe with a key is usually small, fire-resistant and made of steel, which protects your valuables from theft and fire. Sentry safes in the home let you have your valuables available at a moment’s notice. Maybe you want to have cash readily available for an unforeseen emergency. Perhaps you want to keep important financial records in your home office protected from the prying eyes of house guests. Of course, at some point you'll want to get those valuable from the safe--so you'll need to open it.
Place your Sentry safe on a sturdy surface. Make sure the safe is facing you. The safes can be bulky and a little heavy. Be careful when handling the safe.
Insert the key in the silver lock, which is located under the lid in the middle of the safe.
Turn the key to the unlock position. Lift the lid of the safe. You have access to your valuables.
