Flatirons Locksmiths: How Safe is Your Safe?
Using a safe is one way to keep your precious belongings as secure as possible in your home. The combination is usually something easy for you to remember, but hard for anyone else who has no business being in your most prized possessions. But what happens if you happen to inherit a built-in safe when you move into a home? Do you trust the previous occupant to hand over the combination and trust them to forget it once they leave? How many people know the combination to the safe? What if they come back to see what you might have sealed up in there for safe-keeping? You need to ask yourself how much you might miss it once they are gone?
As outlandish as this may sound, consider this scenario with something more plausible and unfortunately more common. What happens if you have just gone through the process of a recent divorce? Already, you have probably run the gauntlet of emotions, the fight over custody and property, as well as the stress of dissolving a marriage that was probably not ideal to begin with. Do you trust that person to stay out of your personal belongings? What if they consider the things kept inside as still being their property? What is keeping them from walking in and taking everything? Just how “safe” are the things you are keeping in your safe now?
Keep the possessions you hold most dear close and as secure as you could ever hope. Just because things in your life might have changed recently doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice security. If the trials and tribulations of your experience has taught you anything, it is probably that it’s better to be safe than sorry.

A personal safe is something that is designed to hold the most important family heirlooms and documents. Whether it is the deed to a home, a Will, birth certificates, firearms, jewelry, or other other items of great value or importance, you would probably rather not have to drive across town to a bank just to access these things. You want to keep them close, in a context that is considered home, not some sterile box in a vault at a downtown bank you never visit. These items are yours, so why keep them at someone else’s “house?”
So make sure the things you treasure the most are protected, especially when things in your life change. Continue keeping your possessions safe from others, even if you never once thought you had to protect yourself or your family from them.
