Safe-Cracking Made Stupid Easy: Just Use a Magnet
SentrySafe puts all sorts of measures in place to protect your valuables and important documents. This particular SentrySafe has an electronic lock, four 1-inch bolts to keep the door firmly in place, pry-resistant hinges, and it's able to withstand drops of up to 15 feet.
Nowadays, most rare earth magnets are made of neodymium, but there still may be some from the '70s kicking around which were made of a samarium-cobalt alloy. The magnets are fairly cheap and you can pick one up on Amazon for under $20 (you can get them at Home Depot, Lowe's, and even Michael's too, but those are usually under 1 inch in diameter).
Just be warned that neodymium magnets are extremely powerful, and can quickly wreck your electronics (seriously, they'll destroy and hard drive or phone almost instantly), or even lead to bodily injury or death if you're not careful.
Now, watch as Mr. Locksmith gets this thing open in no time.
- Grab the gym sock.
- Grab the rare earth magnet.
- Put the rare earth magnet into the sock.
All you have to do to open up the safe is take your trusty sock and magnet device, then attach it to the safe. Well, it's actually not quite that easy.
Many of these inexpensive safes use a nickel solenoid to activate the locking mechanism. So, you'll need to locate the solenoid. There isn't too much surface area to these safes, and it should be on the front door, so just slide the magnet around using the sock until you're able to open the safe.
You used to have to bounce these kinds of safes around to get them open. That was simple enough, but this method is quieter and won't leave any signs of damage.
Now, you might be wonder about why we need the gym sock at all. Technically, you don't, but these magnets are very strong, and the sock makes it easier to move the magnet around and detach it when you're done. If you've ever had a small neodymium magnet on your fridge, then you know what I mean.
And speaking of careful, once again, neodymium magnets are extremely dangerous—we literally cannot stress this enough. They are very powerful, and can quickly do harm to you or others around you, so stay focused when you're using them.
Well, that's all you need to go out and get cracking. Just don't be dumb and do something illegal. And if you decide to do something illegal, 100% of your own free will, don't be an idiot and get caught.
