Brinks is a well regarded home security company that manufactures home safes, among other products and services. Safes made by Brinks come in different models, from fire-proof, to combination, or key operated. In the event of a lost key to Brinks Home Security safe, don’t worry, there is a procedure you can use to get a new copy sent to you.  All you need to do is get in to contact with First Alert, a different home security company that handles Brinks safes because Brinks no longer manufactures them.

Replacing Your Key

First Alert will replace the forgotten combination or lost key to brinks home security safes for a fee that is spelled out in the owner’s manual of your safe.  In order to claim the replacement, you will need to write them a letter including the key, model, and serial number for your safe, as well as contact information and your address.  You will need to get this letter notarized by a registered notary public.  Once you do, send the letter with a signed check or money order for the amount listed in your owner’s manual. This process is difficult, but it is worth it if you want to continue using the Brinks safe.

Additional Help

If you have a Brinks/First Alert security safe in your home, contact the manufacturer for any issues with replacing the key or combination. A professional locksmith who is not licensed with Brinks or First Alert will not be able to replace a First Alert key for you. However, a locksmith will be able to break into a safe for you if you cannot get the key replaced. Breaking into a safe would void the warranty and destroy the safe, so you would have to buy a new safe for your items. Only do this in the most extreme cases.

For any general problems with home locks or lost keys, just use TalkLocal.  All you have to do is enter your name, contact info, and a short description of your problem and TalkLocal will automatically connect you to a quality local company within minutes.

    I have a brinks home security digital electronic safe model # 5072 for at least 6 years and have never changed the batteries. It took many tries to open it but finally succeded. I assume batteries were the problem. Do I need special batteries and must I reenter the combination. Thanks
