Why A Safe Alone Isn’t Safe

Criminals break in to safes all the time. And we’re not just talking about cheap safes. Just last month even in the news Alanis Morrissett’s bedroom safe was stolen resulting in $2M worth of stolen jewelry.

The reason why closet safes are so often broken in to is because a safe is NOT secret. On the contrary, a safe points criminals directly to where your valuables are. That is why actually hiding your safe, such as in a closet, is critical.

A non-hidden safe isn’t a problem just for when a criminals breaks in to your house, but for all the normal hours of the day when your neighbors, repairmen, housekeepers, etc. are passing by your stash. When visitors see your safe sitting there, they can’t help but imagine (and talk about) what great treasures must wait inside of your safe! Even if they aren’t criminals, they may mention their observation to the wrong person.
