I just installed my new V-Line Quick Vault (Model 41214-S) Wall Safe that I got online for $200.00 shipped. I like it so much that may get another one for another part of the house. Here are some pics:

I purchased one and have been debating where to install it. They are nice.

Just so you realized that's going to provide about 3 seconds or burglar resistance.

I have something like that in my wall that protects my breaker box.

But it sure didn't cost no 200.00.

Was it hard to install ?

$200 is about the going rate I found for quality mechanical wall safes. Installation was easy as it fit perfectly between the studs.

As far as "3 seconds of burglary resistance" is concerned, it's 3/8" thick steel lock block is welded to cover guides and adds strength to the lock bolt and it bolts directly through the inner frame of the case to prevent prying. I also plan on hanging a picture over it for concealment.

That basically means nothing. Sorry, anything that weighs <23 pounds is not going to stop anyone, even a kid, from getting inside, with nothing more than a screw driver. And the first place anyone would look is behind the picture frame... I'm not try to knock you, I just hope you dont get a false sense of security from that thing.

The truth is that if they want in bad enough, a pro or even a determined amature can get into anything. Putting a picture over it is a good start, then don't tell anyone it's there. IF they don't know to look for it, the average crook won't be looking behind pictures for a safe they don't know is there. It's a great idea for a place to store a sidearm when you're home. Personally I'd rather have them in a larger safe or on me when I'm not home. It definitely beats the nightstand drawer!

I agree that it's not going to stop anyone with the right amount of determination, however, I'm positive it's going to take more than a screwdriver to get into this. You'll have to tear down the drywall and cut out the studs; That's the only way this thing's coming out.

No offense taken on the security issue. I welcome the comments. :cool:

I agree on: cover it up, and don't tell anyone about it.
