Step 1 Turn the Dial the Wrong Way
The first step is to find out which way the dial should be turned. It is usually clockwise. Then turn the dial the incorrect way. This is to make sure the "pin" locking the sliding bolt is free to move.
Step 2 Hit the Safe
I admit this may sound silly, but you should hit the safe firmly with either your hand, a rubber mallet, or other object. This will move the "pin" that obstructs the sliding bolt for a split second.
Step 3 Turn the Dial the Correct Way
A split second later, turn the dial the correct way. If the "pin" is down, the sliding bolt will move ad the dial will turn all the way around, opening the safe.
Step 4 If the Safe Does Not Open, Repeat
It may take a few attempts to open because the timing is very particular. If you cannot open the safe by using your hand, try using a mallet.
