The door to my First Alert safe is stuck, what should I do?

This may happen if the bars do not disengage fully. You can try one of the following:

  • Insert your override key (the one with the square top) and while turning the key take a flathead screwdriver and insert it in the crack of the door and slowly pry it open.
  • Another method is to lay your First Alert safe on the right hand side and using the over ride key open the door.
