Feature of a good safe
Some of the points to keep in mind before going to select a safe are
1.)It should prevent unauthorized access ie,it should have a proper lock mechanism which can be opened only by you.So choose your locks wisely.For ex:It would not be a very good idea having keys for your lock if you can afford a better lock like combination lock or digital lock ,biometric etc which are better option.To know about locks see post on the various locking mechanism.
2.It should be thin and portable enough so that it can be kept under the car seat or any other small place which will make it safer.
3.It should be strong enough difficult to break break or drill.
4.)It should be easily accessible.The number one reason is for your own safety.Consider the case when you want to reach your gun and you have to use keys to open it or if its dark and you cant read the combination
When you have made your mind to finally get a safe there are certain things that you should be clear with before you can make a decision and finally buy one. They are as follows
First Select your price range/budget.It is very important because by doing this you narrow down you search to best available product in this range. When it comes to gun safe you really get what you pay for but still it doesn’t mean that at low range you don’t get anything. It depends on your application.However there are many very expensive gun safes that don’t even provide the same features and durability as other safes in cheaper prices.So consider looking at its safety and protection features too.
Second Select the type of safe. There are diifernt types of safes available in market.They all have some advantage over other.So be clear with their selection keeping in mind that it depends on your priority of the feature it can provide you with. These are
Third Choose your safe size.
Security – .The safe we have listed are far better from the un selected ones in our database.But we don’t want to give false idea about any safe in terms of security as it is a serious matter and you should be as careful as you can about it no matter how secure the safe is advertised.Since no safe provides ultimate security in all situation most of the safes have been given value as moderate Security of a small safe can be judged based on how easily the safe can be pry open specially its door and not the body. You know like kids who will try to open it without any trail marks or a casual thief who is trying to open it silently. However one cannot be assured of security against a theft or robbery when you are not present at home.In that case no small safe can offer unbreakability. A hard blow with a hammer or cutter can open a small safe anyway. In case you leave it in your car security will be defined against smash and run situation where thief do not have enough time to pry open with paper clip or run countless combination.He also cannot make much noise to actually cut open the safe.In that case you mostly cannot avoid the unwanted. PS Electronics locks are easy to open and information about it is all over the youtube.But there are solution to it by adding some modification.When it comes to gun safe you really get what you pay for.So depending on your needs spend accordingly.
Reliability in need
Reliability is measured in the situation when you want to urgently open the safe.Some add thats it should be open in dark and provide stealth and not make noise but that totally depends on you.
