Opening Locked Security Containers
There were a number of times that I was asked to open security safes and security cabinets, especially in Saigon.
Capt. Ajj. Lee allowed me to go and do a safe cracking course for a week.
I was attached to a Top Sergeant Stone in Saigon. He taught me to open safes using psychology. For example
- Find out the regimental number, birthdate etc of the last person responsible
- Look in the draw of his desk, take out the draw, look under and at the end.
- Use the Manufacture's registered number. Stone had a list of all the Manufacturer's safes numbers from when they send them out.
- If all that failed he had a set of most used numbers.
I opened a few without trouble; I found most people would not bother to change the Manufacture's number as it's too much of a hassle
