Liberty Safe Thwarts Robbery | Northwest Safe

Our Master Safe Technician helped a customer regain access to the contents of their Liberty safe after an unsuccessful robbery attempt. 

The Liberty Presidential 50 withstood an estimated 8-9 hours of attack from the would-be thief. While the customer was at work, the thief tried to smash, pry, and grind their way inside. A 6-foot digging bar, 24-inch pry bar, angle grinder, and mini sledgehammer were all used during the attempt — all of which were the customer’s own tools.

During the attack, the thief broke off the electronic lock keypad and 5-point ship’s wheel handle. They cut through the external 7 gauge steel using the angle grinder and pounded through the fireboard. But, they were unable to breach the internal 7 gauge steel. 

The safe was installed in a daylight basement and bolted to the floor. Bolting a safe to the floor is an extra security precaution. It prevents a thief from laying the safe on its back so they can use their body weight as leverage to pry the door open.

However, the Presidential 50 comes equipped with Liberty Safe’s patented 4-in-1 Flex adjustable interior, allowing you to customize your storage solutions.
