Do not trust just any safe to keep your important papers safe, trust a Sentry Safe.
Secure your Irreplaceable Items in a Sentry Safe
Having your home broken into and burglarized is not a thought that many of us would like to consider; however, the possibility is real. It is a scary thought indeed for most people, and we want to make sure that our home is well protected. While we use locks and security alarms on our doors and windows, a thief can readily disable these preventative measures we take to avoid this occurrence. Once a thief is inside your home, it is a free for all. You can replace some personal possessions, but others cannot. This stresses the importance to have a home safe where you can keep your important papers such as your passports, birth certificates, Will, and the like.
For years, I did not bother to consider the possibility of having my home burglarized, but then it happened. Fortunately, the approaching police department dissuaded the burglars quickly, and while the burglars did help themselves to some of my household possessions, I was fortunate enough not to lose any of my important papers. You see, I stored all my important papers in a little blue wooden box. Yes, I know, that was not one of the smartest decisions on my part, but I was young and making ends meet was hard to do. I did not feel that I could afford to purchase a safe. Of course, with age comes wisdom. Now, I know that you cannot afford not to have a safe in your home to protect your important papers and other belongings you need to keep secure.
Sentry Safe was kind enough to allow me to review one of their home safes. More specifically, the safe is a SFW123CS model.
Not just any safe will do when it comes to protecting those important papers of yours. You need to look for a safe that is dependable, and you get that with any Sentry Safe product. You will need a safe that is both fire proof and waterproof, in the event of a fire or water damage in your home.
The key features of this safe include:
- Combination lock;
- 4 Large live-locking bolts;
- Pry-resistant hinge bar;
- Steel construction; and
- Multi-position shelf.
Note the “pocket” on the inside of the safe door, as well, where you can place items that need to be readily accessible. Made in the U.S.A, the Sentry Safe XL Combination Fire Sale is UL classified to survive in a fire for 1 hour in temperatures up to 1700ºF. In addition, Sentry Safe offers you $50,000 insurance when you enroll in the Fire Protection Guarantee. Further, if this safe is in a fire, Sentry Safe will replace your fire-resistant product.
In addition to the fire protection, the Sentry Safe Company also offers you water protection in your safe. This safe is ETL verified water resistant in up to 8 inches of water for a period of up to 24 hours. The Sentry Safe Combination Fire Safe is impact resistant, as well, and provides reliable protection in the event of a fire and it happens to fall through the floor. The best feature that I love about this safe is that it has a combination lock instead of a key. Should you forget your combination, Sentry Safe is able to assist you in recovering the same, if you previously registered your safe combination.
