Safes of all sizes have become readily available for use at home. Whether you are looking to safeguard valuables, weapons, or paperwork, there are many factors to consider when choosing the type of safe your will purchase. Take the time to research this information before you shop!
Once you have the safe, you need to properly secure it in your home. Most safes are designed to be bolted down to floors, heavy duty shelves, or some stationary object like a wall stud. It is important to secure the safe in order to discourage removal from the location. Just like your home, you want to harden the target and make it as difficult to open or remove as possible. Unfortunately, our officers have taken burglary reports where home safes have simply been lifted up, easily removed, and then taken from the location by the thieves.
An online search will reveal many companies offering constructive suggestions and instruction on how to secure a safe within your home or business. Tips on selecting a location can also be found. Bottom line…if you invest in a safe, take the steps necessary to properly secure it in your home!
