      So do you get paid by Fort Knox Safe Co for promoting their products I do not see you mention anything about Chubb or CMI I find Fort Knox safes look too shiny and gimmicky Chubb is BIG and solid no fancy shiny surfaces just security which is all I want. Your "education program" on security is very limited to guns nothing about what sort of safe one uses for HIGH security that would be a floor safe more secure than a vertical box safe unless at the top end of the range a Bankers/Jewellers Safe weighing in at say 2,000kgs and cost $60,000 I think a security room with a vault door might be the better answer

          Do not buy any safe unless it is handmade. Also the Steel must be 10 gauge or less. Mine are 3 Gauge. The lower the gauge the thicker the steel. 1/4" body is really what you want plus all the best fireproofing.. 1/2" to 3/4" door, etc.....No chinese steel also BTW.

          Very impressive safes, love the seal. I'm still going to attempt the John Wick concrete sealed floor safe.

                There has been not one word on the material changes that happened when the safes were mass produced. They went from using concrete to sheet rock type materials. The big problem with that is the chemical leaching that absolutely nobody wants to talk about. That is what I want to “ask the expert”!

                      My Winchester electronic lock failed on the inside. They sent me a piece of crap plastic NL to replace piece of 💩 Lagard keypad but that did not work. The main problem with these people is you can't get to customer service when electronic lock stops working. I will do a video of the safe getting drilled and opened because I can't get any help. I will then weld some plate tool on inside of door where it was drilled and then I will replace the key pad with SafeLogic Xtreme emp resistance electronic and mechanical lock. I urge anyone thinking about buying a Winchester to call them first and see how many days and calls it takes to talk to someone.

                        dudechuck82 And that goes to show you something about consumers: an upset customer will tell anyone/everyone who will listen. A happy customer will often only tell a handful of people, if any. Funny how that works.

                              @Weapons Education " Check on the gauge of your steel, only buy 3 gauge," you said this and i know its thinner. so im asking why do you even sell 10ga if that is how you feel? will a die grinder cut open the 10ga on the side of the safe?

                              @Big Sean247 10 gauge is obviously thinner steel. Less protection.

                              @Weapons Education you say only buy 3ga but you sell 10ga? so is the 10 not good to keep someone out of it?

                              Also you probably have Chinese steel, mostly sand....Not true 100% USA Steel. About 50% less strength.

                            I got a lot from Your first video with the Florida vendor (Fort Knox vaults). The major problem You have with Your old Fort Knox safe are the gaps which could allow heat into the safe and harm the contents — I guess. Obviously this new fellow's safes are nicer, but does that really make the Fort Knox safes so inferior? (I doubt it, and I'd be very glad to have a Fort Knox, well, for my meager purposes.)

                              I believe You made a video about Your company. I don't know what 'military grade' means, but it sounds impressive. Thank You so much for these videos, what terrific information, You really filled an important void.

                              Fort Knox is twice the price and I have my own personal manufacturer now. Military grade. not the company in this video.

                              Jesus Christ, I cannot afford even the eco-line. What is a person to do when they are looking at spending $600? There has to be a decent option. I don't even need anything big. Maybe 8-12 long rifles simply as a reference.

                                The only way you get something of decent quality at a reasonable price is to buy small and only store Mooney and jewelry in it. If you need to store rifles then it needs to be around the 2000 mark.

                                dreydin I'm thinking the same but from everything I'm learning 1000 is the bare minimum for anything worth a damn.

                                That's why I said "F___ IT" and bought a high quality used commercial grade safe. Pull out the shelves and it holds an arsenal, and it still sleeps 4 soldiers.

                                    How would you bolt down a safe in a double wide trailer. I was going to put it in the master bedroom bathroom walk-in closet... Female on a budget living alone so I will need it installed. I would like to lockup my video cameras DVR inside the safe as well. I don't have a week I guess a 16 or 24 gun safe would work. Does the safes have a integrated hole in the back for electronic power cords. They way in the break in they can't get the DVR video footage.

                                      My rule of thumb on how much you should spend on a safe is this; You should spend 10% of the amount of valuables that you will store in the safe, on the safe. In other words, if you are going to store $20K in valuables, you should spend $2K on the safe and so on.

                                            Weapons Education hello my name is Kevin Douglas and I own a jewelry store. And I was interested in a high security safe. I have a question regarding the limit of steel you're allowed to put on one of the safes. For me and my Business we need a safe that has 2 inches of stainless steel on the body and 3 inches of stainless steel on the door. Can your company make this kind of safe?

                                              The one downside to safe's is they do tend to broadcast "something important is in here". which is why you also need to buy a quality one and have it installed properly. All that being said, anything that is made can be unmade, if the thief is determined and well equipped enough they'll eventually get in it. Really the quality of the safe just buys you time and is a deterrent, most criminals are smash and grabbers and wont waste time on any safe.

                                              What likely happened in your fathers case was the freight company that delivered your fathers safe had some crooked guys working for them. Or a neighbor saw the safe being delivered.

                                              SUPERNOVA could you elaborate. Did they ever catch the person? Did the thieve know him and knew he had bought a big safe are overhear in a conversation about the safe.

                                                      I love your video, but I do not have that many guns and valuables to spend $1000.00 or more for a safe. I was looking at a winchester safe for around 4 to 500.00. I was just wanting to store my guns in to prevent someone from getting to them to easy. We have two German shepherd to get past first. I know most people will find another house after they hear them at the front door greeting them. Again love all your videos. We live just north of you up by Tampa.

                                                        I have a honest question.....If I bought your safe and my house burned down and the articals in it were destroyed, how could you know and back your gurentee? The average house fire comes no where close to the temps you claim to protect?

                                                          @Weapons Education why do i need these kind of safe if my property is not protected? I thought having a safe like these is to guarantee of what's the content of the inside of the safe? What am I missing here?

                                                          +Daniel Lee The safe is guaranteed not your belongings obviously, get insurance for that.
