View Full Version : Any experience with these chest safes?

I was looking at getting one of these

I'm looking for an alternative to the regular standup safe.

I believe it to merely be a regular safe laid on its side. I think the site says that somewhere, that it is the same as a stand up safe. That price also doesn't include the wood outer case and cushion.

I saw one once several years ago.
You could say it's basically an upright safe on it's back, but there are differences.
I can't remember what the one I saw was like inside.

These have some means to help raise the lid as with the example I've linked. That one has two hydraulic lifts.

The inside layout would be different also.

I'm just curious about the weight of the door, how the arms stack inside, things like that.
I'm wondering if they make the door lighter so it's easier to open. If this is the case, is it still as strong somehow, as the other safes?
