Wall Safe WS-DIY & WS-DIYe

ws-diy-x.jpgWall Safe model WS-DIY is from Fire Fyter Safes. WS-DIYe is the same safe but with an electronic keypad. This is one of the few 1 hour fireproof wall safes on the market.  This first thing you will notice about it is that it has a much deeper depth.  Better find a really good place for it with a lot of available depth. I does come with a good set of instructions on how to install it.

This wall safe comes with mounting brackets and an adjustable shelf.  Mounts flush and is easy to hide with a picture or wall hanging of your choice.

I often get questions regarding if a dial or keypad is better.  Well, there are two points of view.  I have copied a paper from Valuesafes that covers this very well.

Electronic Keypad VS Dial Combinations

Why an electronic keypad?
Convience is the main reason for selecting a LaGard electronic keypad. If you are opening the safe several times a day, this is well worth the money. I have found that if someone doesn’t like the process of dialing the combination then they will quit putting things inside the safe. Thus defeating the purpose of having a safe.Many people ask “Which is a better lock, a dial or an electronic keypad?” Good Question. I have found through experience in safe cracking that both are VERY difficult. Electronic keypads have a 4 consecutive invalid code “lockdown”. This makes the keypad inoperable for 5 minutes. After the end of 5 minutes you get two more tries or it goes back into lockdown for another 5 minutes. Thus virtually eliminating random entry of the code.

“What if the battery goes dead?” There is a battery door compartment on the outside of the keypad. Just open the door and change the 9volt battery. The computer chip maintains the combo at all times and will not default because of no battery.

Here is something else that many don’t consider, changing the code on the keypad. It’s easy and can be done when ever the current code has been compromised. Your safe will come with instructions on how to do this but I have included some general notes below.

Press release for Safes

Below is a press release from Valuesafes. In case you want to read it. It just talks a little about Valuesafes and who they are.  Nothing of grand importance, like SAFES,  just tidbits of info about them. When I started locksmithing I didn’t know anything about Safes but now after so long and seeing so many models…like which always needed repair, which safe keeps out the bad guys and which one only makes you feel secure.

www.ValueSafes.com opens a new informational blog to help customers understand the importance of choosing the right safe, backing that knowledge up with an impressive selection of safes for all needs.

Corpus Christi, TX (PRWEB) May 15, 2008 — After 10 years as a locksmith, the Value Safes owner has learned more than a little bit about the importance of finding the right safe. “My customers were wanting and needing better advice,” explains the owner, who has owned and operated www.ValueSafes.com with his wife Jessica for over 4 years in addition to operating his locksmith business. “They were finding just cheap, bottom-of-the-line safes at department stores, bringing them into our locksmith shops, and saying, ‘I lost the key to this’. I’d literally stick a bobby pin into the slot and pop them open. I’d turn around — we never look into the safe — and say, ‘Please tell me you don’t have money in there’, but people would put ten thousand dollars in there and not even know.”

Protecting one’s valuables is a vital part of personal security, but oftentimes customers don’t even realize the true value of their possessions. “Let’s say you bought a gold necklace ten years ago, and you paid a thousand dollars for it,” he explains, giving a prime example. “The price of gold has gone up three times in ten years, and now it’s a three thousand dollar necklace. Along with the current gold rush is the rush to purchase a safe to put it in! We sell a lot to coin collectors who wake up one day and realize their collection has gotten pretty heavy, and it’s time to bump up and buy a real safe.”

My customers were wanting and needing better advice

Giving people a better selection of safes to choose from became one of his goals, but recently he’s focused on providing them with better information, as well. In opening his new blog at www.SafesBlog.com, he is using his experience as a locksmith and seller of safes to match customers with the safe that fits their needs. “There is no Consumer Reports out there that grades safes,” he explains, “so I plan on taking each model number that we carry and basically putting a general rating system on it. This is both the way I see it’s constructed and the comments that my customers leave. Has that particular model of safe ever been broken into? If so, how? What’s the safe’s best use? There are some safes just made for fireproofing or waterproofing, but a waterproof, fireproof safe is not made to keep a burglar out; it’s just made to keep your documents from burning or getting soaked. The customer needs to know that, and I don’t want them to purchase an item thinking they’re getting everything they need if that’s not the safe’s intended purpose.”

Looking out for customers’ needs has always been the Value Safes owner’s priority, and he is hopeful that proper information is the answer. “There’s a lot of confusion out there in the retail market,” he says. “Safes have not been readily available to people, and that limits understanding. At the big box retail stores, people go out and think that all safes are made from plastic because that’s all that is on display. Now, because of the Internet, the customer has a source to go to, and they can get opinions through our blog. I want people to leave opinions; if your safe was broken into, let us know how it was broken into. I want to hear about that.”

Wall Safe SW-1214c

sw-1214c.jpgThe Wall Safe model SW-1214c is good model. Easy to install and hide. Depth is larger than 2×4 stud wall.  So find a deeper spot than normal to install it.  This is not a high security wall safe.  Only the Group II combination lock keeps this safe closed.  It will hold up okay in an attack but not as good as one that is secured with several bolts. See the picture above to see how the locks bolt keeps the door closed. While you are looking at the picture, you will see two holes in the side. That is where you will send two screws through to attach to the studs in the wall. (If it were me, I will drill a third hole in the center so I would have three screws in each stud for extra security)

 This safe is not fireproof.  It is designed to keep your shtuff hidden and out of the hands of thieves.  So find a good hidding place for this safe. Don’t forget your attic, there are many spaces in the attic to attach a wall safe too. I have never heard a home owner complain that a thief took ANYTHING from an attic. It is very inconvient, which makes it a good hiding spot for your wall safe.

  • Hidden hinges
  • (1) Removable shelf
  • 9″ x 9″ door clearance
  • 3/8″ solid steel door
  • 1/16″ solid steel body
  • S & G Group II combination lock

Hayman Safe MV15-2618 TL 15 Fireproof Safes

TL-15 High Security Jewelery safe.  TL 15 safes are normally found in jewelry stores, coin dealers, and check cashing stores.  You insurance company may insist on the purchase of one of these safes if want to get a rider policy for home jewelery as well.  Very important to chat with your insurance company to find if it is a money saving purchase.

In regards to TL 15 safes, they are the more common of TL rated safes.  You can find one used every once in a great while.  Best place to check is your local locksmith.  If he has a used one, make sure he puts on a new lock before you take delivery of it.

Speaking of locks.  TL-15 safes are almost always equipped with an S&G Dial or you can upgrade to a “radiation attack resistant keypad”….which is really any battery operated keypad.  This option for radiation proof is too keep someone from using x-ray equip,ent from trying to break into your safe.  Personally I have never heard of anyone doing this…But there is always someone that “knew of someone, that knows someone, that read someplace, that this could happen. Go figure.  The unit is equipped with spring loaded relockers and drill resistant hardplate hidden with the safe.

The hardplate cannot be drilled through, only melted.  Limiting the amount of time a thief would want to spend in front of it.  It normally takes me around 30 mins to get my equipment set up and the safe prepped before I can even start working on a TL Rated safe.  Note that the door is 5 inches thick and body is two inches think.  Most thieves when they see a safe like this just go past it and try for easier pickings.

Fireproof Safe of 1 1/2 hours UL listed and rated.  This is important.  Often times a UL fire label of 1 1/2 hours is better fire protection than a “factory tested 2 hours”.  (Sounds odd I know but let me explain) UL is a non-biased testing center based here in the US.  While a factory test is done in the factory in China or Korea.  They have a vested intrest in the safe being fire rated for longer.  I have heard of some factory tested safes that were tested for two hours BUT UL only says they are one hour! That should make you stop and think a while about what you are buying.  Please note that while I am on the subject of quality.  Buy from American Manufacturers not from overseas makers of TL rated safes.  Because TL15 rated safes are hard enough to work on WITH help from an American company.  I have seen too many people purchase an affordable overseas safe just to have the import company close down and leave zero information or help when it comes to servicing your safe.  The safe ends up locked up and being expensive to get into and then its normally ruin and unrepairable.

This is why I have chosen to sell only Hayman Safes.  Gary Hayman is the 2nd generation of designer and manufacturer of safes in the Hayman family.  They are available with support and service and have been for decades!  The reason I’m telling you this is because the MV15-2016 is designed to last a lifetime.  Sure it may need some repair or adjustment from a locksmith years from now.  But this is really made to pass down to the grandkids.

One last thing, this model is made with two predrilled bolt down holes.  So that it can be attached to the foundation.  Most safes only come with one.  But this one will be twice as secure so rest easy with one of these.  You can see one of these Magna Vaults at www.valuesafesinc.com or just follow this link to go to the right page: SAFES
