Entirely and only made of wood, this set includes everything you need to make your own safe: quality parts (and several spare parts) and easy to follow, step by step, detailed instructions.
Build your own safe with a personal lock combination and store your precious items in it (jewelry or chocolate, your choice) and then forget your combination to test your safe-cracking abilities! Follow the handy steps in the instructions to master the mix of slow knob twists and careful listening to tumbler movements that will open the lock. Will you retrieve your items, or will you have to hire a locksmith (not really, don’t worry, there’s an emergency procedure if it ever happens)? Try it and see.
Rules of the safe opening:
At first you should renew the lock’s code: twist the knob safe counterclockwise (left) to one-two turns. You can now dial the code:
1 – Scroll the knob counterclockwise (left) to the first digit from 1 to 9. Stay on it.
2 – Now turn the knob clockwise (right) to the number zero. After passing zero continue to twist the handle to the right to the second code digits from 1 to 9. Stay on it.
3- Again turn the knob counterclockwise (left) to the third digit.
If the combination is correct, your safe clicks and opens itself on the third digit. (Briefly : twist left to the first digit, then right to the second zero digit and then left of the third digit).
To re-close the safe – close the door, scroll the knob counterclockwise (left) – the lock closes itself.
Non toxic, doesn’t require glue or any special tools.

Additional helpful materials: for the best assembly results and to ensure the correct fit we recommend checking each detail for flaws and removing imperfections using the finest grit sandpaper. If connecting of certain parts appears difficult, try using household candle wax to lubricate the parts. If you experience difficulties removing a part off the board, simply use a cardboard box opener to detach it. If you desire, you can paint your model; watercolor, gouache or mordant are recommended. Take note that a thick layer can interfere with gears working.
Can the code of the ‘Safe’ model be changed?
The code is set up during the assembly. The instruction provides you with three sample codes or you can set one up of your own choice. Once set and fully assembled, the code cannot be changed.
