Safe’s are awesome because forced entry is not an option like is is for almost any house-based lock or padlock. The only way to crack a safe is to input the correct numbers in sequence and you know what that means, time for some math baby.
Just Use a Magnet
That all sounds great, until you find out that you can open this safe and pretty much every safe like it—in a matter of seconds using only a magnet. A rare earth magnet, to be precise.
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 in the stores such as Amazon, Home Depot and Lowe’s for under $20.
Just be warned that neodymium magnets are extremely powerful. It 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.
What You’ll Need

- Gym sock or something similar to handle the magnet with
- Device you need opened (safes, hotel doors, push button locks, etc.)
- Enemies (optional)
How to Build the Safe-Cracking Device
- Grab the gym sock.

How to Crack the Safe
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. 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. Because the magnet is very strong, the sock makes it easier to move the magnet around and detach it when you’re done. In addition, if you’ve ever had a small neodymium magnet on your fridge, then you can use that.
Not only does this method make it easy to bust into a safe or a standard push button lock on a door, it also won’t leave any trace of intrusion, as long as you’re careful.
And speaking of careful, neodymium magnets are extremely dangerous. They are very powerful and can quickly do harm to you or others around you. Therefore, stay focused when using them.
Well, that’s all you need to go out and get cracking. Just don’t be dumb and do something illegal. If you decide to do something illegal, 100% of your own free will, don’t be an idiot and get caught.
