With Rights Come Responsibilities

Our friends at Gander Mountain are running a great sales campaign right now about rights and responsibilities.

And it’s been a timely alert, too.

A recent Gander Mountain customer responded to that campaign after he inherited his dad’s gun collection. He found in a Liberty safe exactly what he needed.

“My two boys (9 and 12 yrs) are very excited about learning gun safety and hunting. I did not want their enthusiasm to get carried away to handling them without permission or to be influenced by friends to make bad choices, so locking them up is the safest way to keep them out of curious hands.”

He wasn’t disappointed and gave the safe a five-star review: “To my delight I stumbled across Liberty at my local gun store,” and made his purchase.

That’s why Liberty keeps building the best-made safes in the world at a rate of one quality job completed every 90 seconds. It’s the attention to detail that makes all the difference because at Liberty we firmly agree with Gander Mountain—”With rights come responsibilities.”

Be prepared by storing guns and ammo, Wall Street advisor says

What does chaos look like? People don’t have to go far to see examples of societal meltdowns in recent times:

In the last five years, massive riots involving millions of people in dozens of countries have hit the streets demanding changes in economic polices, austerity programs, race and religion issues, entitlement programs, and NBA finals. In total, thousands have died at the hands of police or military forces. Businesses, banks, homes and private property have been attacked, people injured, robbed, assaulted, and beaten to death. Governments fell in Egypt, Libya, Syria, with more teetering on collapse elsewhere as elections swing against incumbents.

These are no apocalyptic fantasies from a “last days” Hollywood disaster movie, it is a reality in today’s destabilized world.

Could America be next on the chopping block for massive social upheaval?

A Wall Street advisor sees similar explosions coming to America (click here for an interview of David John Marotta published in The Washington Examiner). Marotta says the culprits include the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), NSA’s spying, rising taxes, and unrecoverable debt and spending by the federal government. He calls it a “financial apocalypse” for which all Americans should get prepared.

“A bug-out bag is a good idea depending on where you live,” Marotta said,” even if the emergency is just power outages, earthquakes and hurricanes. And with your preparedness you will be equipped to help others,” he wrote.

It is a well established fact that such a tinderbox of rage will flare hot and fast in America should any national disaster or upheaval strike. Recent proof includes the hurricane damages along the Atlantic seaboard (not to mention Katrina, etc.) that triggered looting and crime, the rioting after the George Zimmerman trial, the flare-up over Detroit filing for bankruptcy, or any singular NBA or Superbowl championship. Imagine what a full-scale economic meltdown would create?

The financial apocalypse that Marotta warns of begs the question: What is the average American doing to protect his or her own valuables at home?

Marotta suggests storing guns and ammo for protection. That’s where Liberty comes to the rescue.

“Be prepared,” he wrote. “Especially because it keeps you from being scared.”

To keep your guns and ammo out of the hands of rioters or thieves, and to keep all other valuables safe in the event of storms and fire, look to Liberty Safe for real peace of mind. That’s what Liberty sells better than anybody on the planet—Peace of mind no matter what happens.

How to Stay Cool When the Heat’s On

Is your home safe going to let you down in the event of a fire? That depends on how much you understand about the basics of fire protection.

When a safe displays a sticker saying it is rated for “60-minute” or “90-minute” protection, it means it will prevent the inside temperature from rising above 350 degrees F. for the stated time period, even if the house around it is blazing away at temperatures as high as 1200 degrees F.

Why 350? Because testing by Underwriter’s Laboratory found that standard paper will start to become unreadable around 350 degrees, chars at 400 degrees, and will ignite at 451 degrees F. (remember reading the book “Fahrenheit 451”?). The 350-degree standard is used because many people use a safe to store a variety of valuables, but especially important paper items such as cash, stock certificates, wills, legal documents, contracts, etc.

What about things that would be ruined at temperatures below 350 degrees F., such as that stash of Swiss chocolate, your original 8-track tape of the Beach Boys, or grandma’s 80-year-old photograph collection?

For items sensitive to temperatures below 350 degrees F., the prudent safe owner will purchase a firebox or media cooler to put inside the home safe. These containers offer additional temperature protection for things like diskettes, CD/DVDs, backup hard drives, photographs, etc. There are several on the market that will do the job.

Be careful that you don’t fall for the trap your neighbor steps in with, “Hey, why buy a big Liberty safe when I can get all the fire proofing I need with a much smaller and cheaper fire box?”

The answer is simple: For every house fire, there are 5 burglaries. Thieves really appreciate home owners who put their valuables in fire boxes, even those that are bolted to something. Why waste valuable time beating, whacking, cutting, torching and prying at the mighty armor of a Liberty safe when you can pop a fire box off the floor with a crowbar and walk out with it in your arms?

When you shop for the right fire rating, always buy more fire protection than you think you need, especially if you live far from the fire department. Also, placing your safe on a cement floor or against cement walls improves the performance of your home safe in a fire.

Tokyo Rose and Liberty Safe

On September 26, 2013, Blaze TV featured Liberty Safe, and teased the viewing audience with a brief glimpse of the inside of Glenn Beck’s personal safe in his studio.

The 90-second report includes a look at Beck’s recent acquisition of the actual microphone used by the infamous Tokyo Rose during World War II.  He uses it on-set for his daily program, and locks it away after each show.

TV and radio host Glenn Beck returns for safe keeping in his Liberty safe the actual microphone used by Tokyo Rose during World War Two

Tokyo Rose is the collective name given to a dozen or so Japanese women who broadcast propaganda to Allied troops during World War II. Beck acquired the microphone because some of the broadcasters were secretly delivering vital information to the Americans without the knowledge or awareness of their military overlords. Beck wanted that piece of history preserved for display in his own studio.

Blaze TV also revealed other priceless items that Beck keeps in his safe, but you’ll need to watch the video to find out what those are. Click here.

What is this priceless treasure that Glenn Beck keeps locked up in his Liberty Safe?

 

Don’t Tangle with a Liberty

The whole point of a quality safe is to protect the owner if the unexpected happens. That’s why Liberty receives fan mail all the time, expressing astonishment that the safe performed as advertised and stood strong in a disaster or attempted break-in.

A recent thank you letter came from Marjorie who returned home to face the shock of a burglary, but then that great flow of relief when she discovered that they couldn’t get into her Liberty. Here’s her story in her own words:

“We were burglarized today — broad daylight. The burglars turned over our Franklin model purchased in 2006 — all 700 lbs of it! They used every power tool in our garage — drills, saws — and then hammers and various prying tools to try to get that safe open. The hardware is gone and they turned our house upside down — dumped every single drawer — looking for the key. But that safe held. Thanks Liberty Safes!!”

What more needs be said?

As shown in the photo, the thieves tipped the safe over onto its side to make the attack more effective, but to no avail. Even lying down on the job, Liberty is the best.

Fortunately for Marjorie, Liberty protects buyers with a lifetime warranty. She will be receiving her replacement safe shortly, and then? And then she’ll have that patented Liberty Safe peace of mind.

Liberty Safe, makers of the best-built safes on the planet.

Liberty Engineering Holds Up Under Pressure

Everyone who purchases a safe has something that they value and want to protect.  Whether it is guns, valuables in the form of jewelry, gold or silver, or even family heirlooms and pictures, Liberty Safe understands that it is their job to give you peace of mind should the worst case  scenario arise.

This worst case scenario happened for William from Illinois after a weekend away with his family.  He returned to find their home had been  burglarized.  It was in complete disarray—drawers dumped out, belongings thrown in piles, evidence that the burglars had systematically ransacked the house looking for valuables. Unfortunately, a coin collection and three firearms that had not been locked up had been stolen.

Tools taken from the garage to attack the Liberty safe.

William’s peace of mind came when he discovered that the thieves had failed to break into his Liberty Safe. They tried everything at their disposal from a shovel, a hatchet even a pair of scissors. William reported that, “About the only thing they managed to do was to nick up the safe.”

Anyone familiar with the Liberty Safe brand is probably not surprised by this story.  For 25 years, Liberty has led the industry in fire protection as well as innovation to make their safes secure so that Liberty customers may have peace of mind about their valuables. What may surprise people familiar with Liberty’s quality safes is that William’s Centurion was made in China.

William's safe suffered some minor damage, but his investment is covered by Liberty's life-time warranty.

What makes Liberty Safe’s imports rise above the other imports in the market?  While Liberty Safe has turned to international craftsmen to keep up with the ever growing demand, Liberty has refused to abandon its dedication to quality. Liberty Safe engineers work hand in hand with their import manufacturers to ensure that each import safe matches the same fire protection and security measures that 1.5 million customers have come to expect from their American-made products.

All Liberty Safe imports are backed by a lifetime warranty. That’s why William doesn’t need to worry about going out and buying a new safe, because Liberty has him covered. Although he did admit, “I guess I need a bigger safe to hold everything.”

 

 

Fascinating new details about Moore, OK, tornado

As we mentioned three months ago (June 18, 2013), one of the Oklahoma homes demolished in this summer’s terrible tornado season, had everything but a Liberty safe destroyed. The safe was the only thing left standing there, bolted to the cement floor, as recommended, and everything else gone.

Since we first reported on this event, the home’s owner wrote to provide more detail. See his letter below:

August 27, 2013

Dear Liberty Safe,

About three years ago, I bought a Liberty Franklin 50 from H&H
Gun Range in Oklahoma. I had them bolt it to the floor in my garage when they
delivered it. The safe has worked great for those three years, and even more so
when we had one of the worst tornados in our history hit our town of Moore,
Oklahoma.

On May 20, 2013, I went to work about seven miles away from
my home. I was going to drive my Corvette that day, but when I heard there was
a hail storm in the forecast, I left it in the garage. News came later that day
that an F5 tornado had hit our town. We knew it was bad when the news came out
that many people lost their lives that day.

We were not able to get to our homes right away because of
all the destruction and downed trees. We couldn’t even drive in. We had to walk
two miles in to reach our home. I was shocked at the power of that tornado and
the devastation. We finally made it to our place. Our home was a 3800 sq ft house
and it was completely leveled to the ground. To our surprise, the Liberty safe,
which was bolted to the concrete, was still sitting there. My Corvette was even
still there, with its windows blown out. We were shocked. An Oklahoma
University meteorologist informed us that our home was 30-40 feet within the
center of the tornado.

I thought to myself, “What am I going to do now?” In the next
couple of days we salvaged what valuables we could. We noticed that some of our
things around the safe actually were protected. The Liberty Safe stayed where
it was suppose to stay. Two weeks went by, and after all the clean up around
property, we finally decided to see if we could open up the safe. I put in my
combination and it opened up. The very first time, too. We were also surprised
that it was not even wet inside, as about ten inches of rain came down during
the past two weeks. Everything in the safe was the same as I had left it.

I’ve never seen anything like this.
The tornado tore cars apart. There was an 18-foot boat and trailer together
before the storm. Now there is no boat and the motor was 300 feet in the
opposite direction as the trailer. While we were cleaning up, another neighbor,
asked if we had seen a 2.5 x 2.5 safe anywhere? We told him we hadn’t, but we
told him insurance would cover it. He said that he had a lot of valuables
inside and they’re all gone; they never could find it.

I am a big believer in Liberty Safes. I have sold several of
them since this happened. Mr. Hall at H&H Gun Range has been wonderful to
work with. They have picked up the safe and are keeping it in their showroom.
They are letting me choose a new replacement safe. It’s a good product. If it
is installed properly it can withstand an F5 tornado. It did what it was
absolutely supposed to do!
