Hollon Fire and Burlary Safes – Now with Combination locks

Hollon safes primarily only sold safes that had electronic keypads, except for a few drop safes or home fire safes.  They just recently introduced the option to purchase the Hollon Fire and Burglary safes with combination locks.  Some people prefer the dial lock over the electronic version and feel safer having it so they decided to start offering it to their customers.  They will set the combination to the code of your choice so if you want it something special and don’t want to have to pay a lock smith to change it after wards make sure to note it on your order.

This is an excellent expansion of these safes and I’m excited to be able to announce the change.  It will be an option soon offered on the website for a small fee to upgrade to the combination lock.  So you can better understand why there is an extra charge I would like to provide an insight on the safe ordering world.  When the safes are made by the manufacturer overseas they will generally put an electronic lock on the safe at no extra charge but charge more for a combination lock.  It is as if they have accepted the fact that electronic locks are the new most popular lock option so they make it as a standard option.  To those that still want the combination locks they charge a bit more, so it passes on to the consumer.

Gun safes makes sense

Gun Safes

Gun safes make sense.  They protect children by restricting access to your guns to only authorized persons.  And they can protect your valuable guns from theft and from damage due to fire.  Gun safes are available in two types – pistol safes and cabinet style gun safes for rifles and shotguns.  The pistol safes a really just designed to restrict access to the guns.   They are small chest-type safes which can be placed on a bedside table or under the bed.  But they can be carried of by burglars.

The cabinet-style gun safes can be used to protect your guns from fire and burglary as well as to restrict access to them.  Be sure and check and make sure that the gun safe you are looking at is burglary and fireproof rated.  Typical burglary ratings are UL TL 15 and UL TL 30.  Typical fire ratings are 1 hour fireproof and 2 hour fireproof.  Also, make sure the gun safe has enough room inside for all of your guns – don’t forget a shelf for your pistols and ammunition.  For more information on gun safes.

It’s a good idea to keep your guns in a gun safe these days

Gun Safe

Recently, many states have passed laws making it a criminal offense if someone gets hurt with a gun that you are responsible for.  These laws are aimed at protecting children from playing with guns.  They make good sense, and can help keep more restrictive gun control laws from being passed.  So you should consider keeping all of your guns in a gun safe.  Gun safes range in size from small, chest-style pistol safes to large, cabinet-style safes for shotguns and rifles.

Gun safes are designed to restrict access to your guns to only authorized persons, and can help protect your valuable guns in the event of a burglary or fire as well.  Look for a gun safe that carries a burglary and fireproof rating.  Keep in mind that the small pistol safes are just designed to keep unauthorized persons from accessing your pistol(s) – they won’t help against burglars because they can be easily carried off.  For more information on the gun safe.
