Liberty Safes


any of you have one? likes/dislikes?

i have a free safety deposit box at the bank, but there are things i think i'd like to secure at home. i demo'd a house that burnt once, and the guy had a "supposed" fire safe. all the documents inside were toast. he had it in his basement mechanical room close to the furnace and hot water heater "natural gas fired".

listening to glenn beck show and they advertise liberty safes all the time. that biometric opener sounds interesting. i have some antique rifles/shotguns/pistols that i'd like to keep secure.

Re: Liberty Safes


I know not all fire safes are the same. Usually, when purchasing one, the manufacturer usually is pretty clear on what the safe will and will not do in a fire. Some will not keep papers and such from becoming toast. Ones that will are quite a bit more expensive than those that don't.

Re: Liberty Safes


and that's what's scary. i'm becoming of the opinion, that i'll need to spend about $4k for the safe to do what i want it to.

Re: Liberty Safes


Liberty has a good rep but half of their line is made in China, the higher end ones are made in the US.

If you want to spend the moon on a really secure safe look at Graffunder, if you want a high end but not insanely priced on get a Fort Knox. If you want something plain but really sturdy look at Sturdy.

Re: Liberty Safes


I have two Liberty safes.

The maroon one is the size of a refrigerator.

When I bought my two I bought 6 more for friends.

Did a fire job where a Liberty was involved, that convinced me.

If the items to be protected aren't particularly cat-burglar level, you might be better served by building your own "safe room" for them, tailored to the likely hazards rather than an off the shelf job that may be overkill in some respects and underkill in others. Just a thought...

Re: Liberty Safes


I have a Liberty "FatBoy" safe, and have two issues:

I did not trust the electronic lock, so I have the combo, and it is a b i t c h to open. You have to be dead on the money, and count a lot of turns......

And, I didn't buy the largest safe I could. The FatBoy is big, but it is not deep enough, or tall enough.....so the plan is to build a cabinet for it later, and install a larger safe to take care of what I do not own.

I would buy the electronic lock next time, everyone tells me they are fine. I have a drop box under the bed....four fingers will open it in the dark, keep small hands out, and a Redhawk resides within to discourage late night visitors.
