Liberty's Response:Sounds like you are having some issues that we need to get fixed up for you. You are right...it should not have made it past inspection that way. As you know from your other 2 safes, we build a quality product and will get your safe up to the quality standards that you/we expect. A customer service rep will be in contact either today or tomorrow.
Liberty's Response:Glad you like your safe AHAB. You're right, it's discouraging to have to wait so long for your Liberty. Demand for Liberty's have been so strong, the lead times were extended in 2013, selling out for most of the year. Nevertheless, we should have done a better job in communicating the status of your order. We will use this as a training issue with our dealers. Thanks for letting us know. The Franklin safe is one nice safe. We're glad you are happy with it.
Liberty's Response:Yes, gun capacity varies based on size of guns, barrels and scopes attached. It may be helpful to turn the stocks of the gun slight to help fit the front row better.
That said, I'm wondering if I made the right decision in the end with the Liberty Franklin 35. I haven't even had it for a week yet and have serious doubts.
The locking hub is cosmetically damaged upon delivery. They are supposed to be fixing that so I'll let that one slide but my largest concern is the door. The door is warped or something and doesn't close flush against the jamb. When the top corner of the door hits the jamb the bottom of the door has almost a half inch gap. The safe was delivered missing the door adjusters but even if it had them I will have to always use my foot to press the bottom of the door closed in order to turn the spokes and lock up the safe...not really something I'm looking forward to for the life of the safe.
I noticed last night that the felt liner is starting to fall already like a 15 year old car head-liner and the fire seal on the door has sections that keep coming unstuck from the jamb surface.
The quality is not near what I expected especially after waiting for it 7 weeks. For those who got a perfect one...congratulations. I've had several emails back and forth with Liberty and I do not think anyone "gets it" yet or understands my issue with the door not closing properly and it will never seal the way it is now. I wish the shipped product was as good as all the floor models I looked at.
Liberty's Response:Wow, it's very unfortunate and rare someone has this kind of experience with a Franklin safe. First off, we'll pass this information on to manufacturing and quality control so they can review. Then, let's see what we can do for you to resolve your issues early in the week. Can you send over the serial # and who you have been working with in our customer service department; that will help us to get the history on your safe. I'm going to forward to our customer service manager so we can review and get back with you. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience. You pay good money for a quality safe, let us see what we can do to make it right.
UPDATE: JUNE 24, 2013
So I made the original purchase Dec 27 and the original safe was delivered in late Feb. You can look for the original review on Feb 22,2013. Finally got the replacement in. It appears to be what I originally expected. Seems to be a very good quality and everything in working order. This one has all the parts and pieces included and/or installed and the door works perfectly. The hub on this one even spins easier and feels better that the original. If you are thinking of a safe, you cannot go wrong with Liberty...as they proved to me that even if you happen to get one with issues and are not 100% satisfied, they will make it right. I think I just happened to get one during the "peak" sales due to the governments' current views and their QA got a little loose or hurried...but it did seem to be a very isolated incident. I am glad I chose this one over the thinner and/or China made ones.
Liberty's Response:We agree, issues like these shouldn't happen. Our locksmith is apparently currently working with you to figure out the combination mis-dialing. We also have some new velcro we can send you for the lights. Let us know if everything works out.
