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.
A Home Safe Designed to Stop Break-Ins
The Liberty Presidential 50 has a UL Residential Security Container (RSC) burglary classification. This classification was awarded by Underwriters Laboratory (UL), an independent third-party testing organization founded in 1984.
It weighs an impressive 1,585 pounds and can hold up to 39 long guns. However, the Presidential 50 comes equipped with Liberty Safe’s patented 4-in-1 Flex adjustable interior, allowing you to customize your storage solutions.
