Your home is your castle, and your valuables are part of your kingdom. You protect your home with locks on the doors, security systems, window locks, and maybe even a family dog. What happens when the locks are broken, the security system is disarmed and the dog is out with you? Your highly valuable items are left out in the open for anyone to see and take. These items are irreplaceable and no amount of money will make that feeling of loss go away. However, a safe can add the extra security that may make the difference of items stolen and items kept.
One option for a safe is a floor safe. These safes can be small and lightweight with a combination or key opening or both. They may also be safes that weigh over a ton and have both a key and combination to add to the security. The options for a floor safe are endless and are directly related to the level of security you are looking to have. A lightweight safe may be a general deterrent for an average home invader looking for the easiest and quickest items to take and sell for a profit. However, if you have a home that would be targeted by career criminals, a lightweight floor safe would not be a good deterrent. In these instances, you hope a large fireproof safe would be a great deterrent but some career criminals are capable of cracking any safe they see.
For those valuables that need to be hidden and stay hidden from anyone looking to rob you blind, a wall safe can help provide extra peace of mind. Wall safes are typically protected by a combination lock and a key and can fit right into the wall so that they can be hidden by clothing or a picture. Because they are hidden from view, the average criminal will not think to overturn every picture and article of clothing to find it. Additionally, if properly installed, they are not easy to remove. Therefore, a criminal who is pressed for time cannot simply remove the safe and open it at another location. While nothing is foolproof, wall safes provide the extra security needed to keep your valuables safe from thieves and crooks.
Items To Keep In Your Safe
Of course, your first instinct would be to put anything and everything in your safe to protect it. This is not the purpose of a safe. Insurance will replace most things stolen from your home, so you do not need to protect everything by putting it in the safe. However, there are some items that are irreplaceable or can lead to bigger problems if stolen. Items such as birth certificates, passports, social security numbers, and legal documents should be kept in your safe for security and to prevent identity theft. Other items, such as family heirlooms, expensive jewelry, and even cash are also great candidates to be put into your safe.
