Family Watch

security safe

My great grandfather’s pocket watch is one of the few family heirlooms that we as a unit cherish.  We want to keep this watch for a long long time.  In fact, some who have seen the watch wonder why it isn’t in a museum somewhere marking the history of a past generation. 

But I think the best way it is going to be appreciated is in our home.  We bought a security safe specifically for the watch and I think it was a wise investment.

Safety First

When it comes to your valuable possessions, don’t just leave your stuff lying around.  Put it in a place where you know there will be nothing to worry about.  You don’t have to be concerned that your valuables are floating around in unsafe places around your house with a depository safe.

With a top of the line protection device, your goods are safe and sound and your headache is gone.

Fire Fyter Fireproof Safes

I have been writting recently about Fire Fyter’s Fireproof Safe manufacturing being stopped in the USA and being moved to China.  The models that are listed on ValueSafes website are currently as of this writting made in Ohio.  As they sell out of stock we will be marking them as sold out until they get the Chinese models shiped. 

So you have a limited time to get a made in the USA safe.  People have asked if the prices will go down once they are in stock from China.   I don’t know that answer on these fireproof safe models.  However, if its like other things they may drop a bit in the begining just to get the brand moving again. 

We are still waiting to see if our favorite made in the USA fireproof safes will be of decent quality once shipments start coming in.  I will remove the made in the USA label once they are in so as long as you see the label and its in stock you will know they from Ohio.  Until then you can check them out here Fire Fyter Fireproof Safes.

Cobalt Safe EM-020 Fireproof Home Safe

Cobalt Safes model EM-020 fireproof home safe is favorite size of mine though not the most popular of this series.  It has a relatively convient weight in that it is easy to move for a home safe and yet large enough to hold the typical household paperwork.  Such as passport, wills, deeds, trusts, etc.  If you are a pack rat though you may wish to consider a larger model.  

1 hour fireproof safe protection.  Good protection from a “sticky finger” thief and pry bar resistant…… you know I just looked at the picture again and it looks like the Em-015 but know that this picture doesn’t seem to do it justice in regards to the size.  Its good one and you will not be sad you purcased the EM-o20 from Cobalt safes.  To see one or purchase one see the EM-020

Cobalt Safes model EM-016 1 hour fireproof Safe

 Cobalt Safes model EM-016 1 hour fireproof Safe.  Is designed the exact same as the SM-016 1 hour fireproof safe.  Except it has a keypad on it.  You will notice on the left is the turn handle to pull back the bolts.  On the right side of the keypad is the battery compartment.  It holds 4 AA size batteries.  Also has a non volatile memory.  Which means if you remove the batteries and then put them back in, you had better remember the combo because the keypad will!  Great theft deterant.

Fire Fyter Safes moves manufacturing overseas

Fire Fyter Safes announced it is moving manufacturing overseas.  We will have to stay tuned to see if quality can be maintained.  This will take a bite out the back sides of the people in Ohio and I’m feeling pretty let down regarding Fire Fyter.  The were the last entry level safe to be made in the USA.

We will have to stand by and wait to see if things go well for Fire Fyter Safes after this move.  I know it doesn’t help the USA.  But I have yet to see the Chinese version. I will let you know as soon as I know.

Fire Fyter Safes

Sad news hit me last week regarding Fire Fyter Safes.  They are shutting down their manufacturing facility here in the USA.  Ohio will be a little worse off as unemployment will rise.  Fire Fyter is shutting down its products and starting to import the safes from China!

So they are going from making a high quality product made by American hands to importing a Chinese knock off.  We will have to wait and see if they can maintain quality standards.  I’m a bit depressed about this because Fire Fyter safes were in high demand.  Quality was there.  Why move it over seas?  They were the last low end, affordable, made in the USA safe.

Time will tell and I will let you know the quality results as they come in.
