In SAFE CRACKERS, the contestant is shown two prizes, both of which are locked inside a giant safe. The three-digit price of the smaller item represents the combination of the safe. The digits in the price of the smaller prize are shown on each of three dials; each digit appears only once in the price. The contestant must set the dials to the price of the three-digit prize to open the safe and win both prizes.

Let's Open the Safe! It's a Magnavox Home Entertainment Center with TV, Turntable, AM/FM Radio and an 8-Track Player. She can also win a pair of Brumby Rocking Chairs. It's a prize package worth $2,811! Let's close that safe!

The combination of the safe is the price of the two rocking chairs. The numbers on the dials are 1, 3 and 6. Carolyn must use the dials to put in the price of the rockers.
