Do I Need a Safe If I Don't Own a Gun

Every Home Needs a Safe

Every home should have a safe, even if you do not own a gun. Why? Because you have other important things that also need to be protected from burglars and fire damage. It's easy to get in the mindset that you do not need a home safe to protect your valuables, especially if you have an alarm system or your neighborhood has never been hit by burglars.

Here is just a sample of all the things you can protect and have immediate access to 24 hours a day when you buy a safe for your home:

  • Passports
  • Birth certificates
  • Social security cards
  • Life insurance policies
  • Copy of wills
  • Living wills and healthcare proxies
  • Home insurance policies
  • Family photographs
  • Sentimental items
  • Prescription medications
  • Cash and jewelry
  • Banking information
  • Investment records

Protection From Burglars and Fire

Owning a home safe gives you peace of mind knowing that you have the means to protect your valuables, cash, and important documents. Liberty Home Safes are built to keep burglars out with:

  • One-inch thick composite steel door
  • Triple-case hardened steel plates protecting lock from being drilled
  • 12-gauge steel body
  • Defensive barrier on all four door sides of one-inch locking bolts
  • UL™ Listed SecuRam™ BackLit Electronic Lock similar to bank locks

Having a home security safe is not just about burglars, though. You can use it to protect important documents that you would need immediately if your home were to be damaged or destroyed by fire. A Liberty Safe protects its contents for 60 minutes at 1200 degrees with its:

  • 83,000 BTU fire rating
  • Three-layered fireboard protection
  • Palusol™ 7X Heat-Activated door seal that helps keep out heat and smoke

Better Than a Bank Safe Deposit Box

You might think using a safe deposit box at your bank is the safest place to keep your valuables. After all, why not...because banks are protected by 24-hour security and alarm systems. And of course, banks are protected by FDIC insurance, right? But wait, FDIC insurance only covers the money you have in your bank accounts, not the contents of your safe deposit box that might include cash you're keeping for an emergency. Plus, you do not have 24-hour access to the contents in your safe deposit box.

No one likes to think about dying, but if you suddenly become ill or die unexpectedly, your spouse or family will not be able to access your safe deposit box. Once your bank receives notice of your death, they automatically seal your safe deposit box. This could prevent them from quickly accessing your living will, last will and testament, or funeral directive. The only way your family can have your box unsealed is to go through the hassle of having a lawyer go to court to obtain the legal papers needed for the bank.

Buying a Liberty Home Safe is making an investment in protection for your family for now and in the future. Learn how to buy a safe by contacting your local dealer today.
