    Some of the older locks if in good shape you can open them by feel. Spin the dial a few times to the right adn then you turn slowly to the left till you feel the click and go the other way.. and so on.. Write down the numbers on each click.

    If you don’t have any luck call the local locksmith. They have books with all the needed info and will only charge you maybe 50 bucks to open it if you take it to them.

    Is this lock a dial combination or is a 3 or 4 digit number that has to be entered by moving individual wheels to give you the combination, If its the dial one try a bolt cutter!!!!! But if its the other one sit down in a comfortable chair and start at 100 and work your way up till you get the number why 100? most people like to start their combination a little bit into the 3 digit numbers

    Did you try contacting the manufacturer? I think Yale is still in business. Give them the complete details, including a serial number if the safe has one. Take some digital pics, including a closeup of the combination dial and main door handle.

    I saw a demonstration on how to break open a combo lock on YouTube. The guy has a system that greatly narrows down the possibilities.
