Cobalt Safes SB-04c Fireproof Safe

 The SB-04c from Cobalt Safes. Fireproof Safe. Burglary Safe. Whats not to like?Â

Cobalt Safes model SB-04c Fireproof Safe with Burglary Safe.  Has a lifetime fire warrenty and a 5 year warrenty against manufactures defects in labor and materials.  This is an extremely good warrenty in that most manufactures will cover similar but Cobalt Safes goes the extra mile and sends a locksmith to your location to repair.  Most manufactures are also only 1 year in coverage.

First take a look at the door, you will see that it is open. There are two major parts,  an outer door and then a bolt assembly behind it.  This gives it a solid 5 inch thick door on the  Cobalt Safe SB-04c.   Take into consideration that when  the average thief breaking into the average home.  He is coming into the house with empty hands and wants to leave with them full.  Chances of him bringing tools such as a  crowbar or sledge hammers are not the norm.  If he does find the safe he will most likely be too unprepared to even beat on it and will quickly move to everything else we leave available in our homes that is easy to pocket and easy to pawn.  Such as our laptops, tvs, dvrs and even my son’s Nintendo! (God forbid that gets taken)

Now for something hypathetical. Lets say you left the a crow bar and sledge hammer next to it and a small sticky note that says “beat me” on the safe.  The SB-04c fire safe is going to hold up.  The outer steel wall, which is an extreme thickness of about 1/8 inch steel is reinforced by a cement based fireproof wall with another steel wall on the interior.  This makes for excellant strength against common tools.Â

The 5 inch thick door is also too thick to get a crow bar down deep enough to actually gain enough purchase to even begin to start using a crow bar on the door.  So in my opinion the SB-04c Fire Safe is one of the best buys on the market today.

Combine this with a 2 hour fireproof  and a center bolt down (so the safe can’t picked up and carried away) for a sturdy little fortress of protection.Â

I also like the size.  Though it may be too large for most home situations it does offer good room to grow into.  The last thing most of want to do is purchase two safes.  I often advise to purchase 1 during your life.  But make it something you can grow into because this safe is designed to last a lifetime.  See more details at Cobalt Safes SB-04c

Cobalt Safes SB-02c Fire Safe and Burglary Safe

Cobalt Safes model SB-02c Fire Safe /Burglary Safe.  Comes with a lifetime fire warrenty plus a 5 year warrenty against manufactures defects in labor and materials.  This is a very good warrenty in that most manufactures will cover similar but Cobalt Safes goes the extra mile and sends a locksmith to your location to repair.

Lets start at the door of the safe. There is an outer door and then a bolt assembly behind it.  This makes for a hefty 5 inch thick door on the  SB-02c.   When we examine the average thief breaking into the average home.  He is coming into the house with empty hands and wants to leave with them full.  Chances of him bringing a crow bar or sledge hammer are slim to none.  If he does find the safe he will most likely be too unprepared to even beat on it and will quickly move to everything else we leave available in our homes that is easy to pocket and easy to pawn.

Now for something hypathetical. Lets say you left the a crow bar and sledge hammer next to it and a small sticky note that says “beat me” on the safe.  The SB-02c is going to hold up.  The outer steel wall, which is an extreme thickness of about 1/8 inch steel is reinforced by a cement based fireproof wall with another steel wall on the interior.  This makes for excellant strength against common tools. 

The 5 inch thick door is also too thick to get a crow bar down deep enough to actually gain enough purchase to even begin to start using a crow bar on the door.  So in my opinion the SB-02c is one of the best buys on the market today.

Combine this with a 2 hour fireproof  and a center bolt down (so the safe can’t be picked up and carried off) and its looking even better to me.

But wait, it gets better! The lock is a Sargent & Greenleaf group II dial lock.  Made in the state of Kentucky by real American hands.  The design and quality of these locks last for 100 years (warrenty is only like 5 but they are very well built).  Includes an extra sensative “glass relocker” on the safe to keep out the intelligent thief that may show up with better tools than a crow bar and hammers.

Last I want to point out the hinges.  Notice they are of a monsterous design.  That is because these are ball bearing hinges just like you see in bank vaults.  These keep the door from sagging after decades of use.

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 Safe SS-031D Fireproof Safe

Cobalt Safe model SS-031D. Is the most  popular in the line up of Fireproof Home Safes.  Its also the largest.  Why is it so popular? I’m not 100% sure.  But the comments I get on it range from “Most size for money”, “Pull out drawer and adjustable shelf”, “Its big but its not too cumbersome”.

I will say this, the picture is a fairly acurate picture of the safe except you can’t see the black pull out tray that is also included.  You can see the adjustable shelf with the door open.  You also get a good view of the bolts on the door opening side.  However, there are also fixed bolts on the hinge side to add support and strength against crow bar attacks.  Though its primary purpose is not strength against burglary but it is strength against fire!  A solid 1 hour fire rating. 

The Cobalt Safe SS-031D is steel lined hole in the bottom of the safe to bolt down to your foundation to keep the safe from being carried off.  It is important to note that when you buy a safe you are buying “Time” time against fire and time against theft.  If you live in a high crime area and you want to keep 50k of cash and jewelry in this safe, then this is not the safe for you.  This safe is made it hold important papers, some cash, some jewelry, a pistol or other medium size items.  It will hold up against a prybar attack in that it would be classified as “resistant” but not for an extended period.  You will notice I like to “under sell” most safes.  Which means I’m not going to push a safe like some kind of late night infomercial selling Ginsu Chopping Knives!  But hopefully give you as realistic picture of the safe and its intended purpose. 

That being said this is an excellant Fire safe to protect against fire and protect against “light” theft or sticky fingers as I like to say. Go here to see a model SS-031D or the rest of the fireproof home safes.

Fireproof Home Safe SM-030 by Cobalt

 

Fireproof Home Safe model SM-030 by Cobalt is the same safe as the model SM-020 only its put on its side and the hinges are are now on a different side.  Still uses the key to pull back the bolts after the combination has been dialed open. Don’t loose the keys.  I have also noticed some people leaving the safe dial in the dialed open position and only using the key to get in and out.  Though this can be done its not good to not relock the safe with the dial.Â

There is also a handy pull out platic tray on this model and comes with a bolt down kit.Â

Cobalt Sm-020 Fireproof Home Safe

This is a picture of the Cobalt SM-020.   One hour fireproof safe.   Comes with a steel lined predrilled hole in the center and mounting hardware.   Dial lock is secure but it is not a Group II lock.   You will not be able to change the combination on this lock easily like a Group II.   Though it can be changed by a locksmith but not set to any specific group of numbers.   It just comes up random because the way the safe is designed.

You will also notice it comes with a key and no handle.   This is because the key acts as a handle and adds an extra security measure to the safe.   Security aim is to keep sticky fingers off your schtuff!   It will hold up to a small tool attack but that is not its main purpose. Fireproof and stopping sticky fingers is.

Fireproof Home Safe model SM-016 from Cobalt

 

Fireproof Home Safe SM-016

Fireproof Home Safe model SM-016 is from Cobalt Safes.  You will also find this safe under a variety of manufactures. Such as Gardall Safes and Adesco.  However, you will notice that we have them at a much more affordable price.  You will also notice a different selection of paints on each brand because they all have a contract with the manufacturer to paint it in their colors. 

Its important to point out that this is the same safe as the SM-016.  Only its turned on its side and made to open up a different way.  But other than that it has the same dimensions.

Which ever manufacturer you purchase this safe from you will be getting a great quality Fireproof Home Safe.  Factory tested for 1 hour with bolt down hole in the center.  It even comes with the bolt to bolt it down.  VERY easy to do.  I have included a paper on our website that teaches how I do it.  

I get a lot of questions about burglary resistant.   Well, its designed to keep out “sticky fingers” (sticky fingers are people that would break in a safe but would help themselves if tempted)and it can hold up against small tools.  I would not qualify it as a high security safe.  Though it is well made.

You will notice that it comes with a dial or electronic keypad.  The dial is not a group II lock but it is a good one.  I have noticed that the dial works more like a locker lock that you may have had in high school.  I would suggest to elderly and impatient people to choose the keypad.  Its just easier to get in and out of….and if its easy, you will use it more.?
