Do they own a drill rig?
A drill rig is a fixture designed to hold a drill while boring a hole. Using a drill rig is debateably the only way to drill a hole in a safe because not using one can cause unintended damage to internal components. This can result in unnecessary replacement of expensive parts. We own and use the full arsenal of Strongarm drill rigs-the best in the business.
Manipulation of a safe lock is opening by only sight sound and feel. You might consider asking the tech if he can manipulate a safe. If the tech says “oh that’s just a waste of time- we just drill them”, consider that there are times that the preferred method of opening may be manipulating. Higher quality safes often have glass inside. Again, an unprofessional attack can result in expensive consequences.

Common Tidel problems:
Many of the most common problems can be solved with a “reboot”. When power is interrupted (when you remove the fuse) the cradles which hold the coin tubes “realign” themselves, and the logic “Clears itself”. This is useful if a cradle is jammed, or if the unit is acting unusually. To reboot, simply remove the fuse (Located under the control panel), wait 10 seconds and re-insert. Never put unrolled coins in the safe. Use only rolled coins in the provided vend tubes. If a tube gets jammed, sometimes you can dislodge it with a screwdriver from underneath, but use extreme caution, as the cradles are made of plastic and they are very easy to break.4178
