many years of experience as a locksmith, many people ask me questions how to
bolt down their safe. Follow these simple instructions below, and you will

locate the mounting hole. They are usually found in the center of a fireproof

is complete, I take the safe and move it out of the way. For those with carpet,
you’ll want to cut a hole around the size of a half dollar in order to get to

bolt. It will need to be turned several times. This will ensure that everything

lift the safe, but now they have to lift the floor’s weight too. If you have
