    I wouldn't put it on the wall unless there was no other option. It would be much more secure anchored to a floor. Also this is just a common sense tip, don't place it out in the open.

        Surely that has to be the worst position to mount the safe? Lots of room around to swing a hammer at it, get a pry bar behind it or other implement? It should be also fixed to the floor where possible and mounted in a low corner.

          The weight of the safe will wear out the anchors. Don’t install this way. Just no.

            I don't have masonry in my house, would using hefty anchors and bolts into studs be a secure option?

              Don't drill into the mortar - drill into the brick. Much stronger!
