No business owners want to really think about the chances of a robbery, and they definitely do not want to consider the problem of employee theft, but these things do happen. A great way to reduce your danger, and increase the safety of both your money and your employees, is to invest in a drop safe.
A drop safe is a small safe that can easily be placed under your registers, so that employees can quickly and discreetly secure money once the balance in their register becomes dangerously high. These safes are especially useful to have if your business sees a large amount of cash flow throughout the day. You business, and your employees, will be much safer if there are not extremely large sums of cash in their tills.
These secure containers have an opening just large enough for the employee to slip funds into, but no items can easily be taken back out. You might be thinking that thieves would simply bring devices to fish the money out of the openings, but drop safe brands such as Protex, Hollon, and Mutual, are equipped with a baffled edge that stops this from happening. The inside of the opening looks a bit like layers of sharks teeth, which makes it impossible to fish the funds out of the safe once they are deposited.
Drop safes are extremely secure devices, perfect for protecting large sums of money throughout the business day, but if you want to protect your cash overnight, you should consider investing in a larger depository safe. These safes are similar to the drop safes, but are reinforced with a drill resistant hard plate, and provide the maximum amount of protection to keep your money safe even overnight. Regardless of how much you trust your employees, or feel safe in your community, you should certainly have at least one of these two kinds of safes to make sure your hard earned profits are protected.
Too many business owners wait until after a substantial amount of their cash is stolen before they think of building up their safety precautions. It is much wiser to go ahead and secure your money, rather than wait to do so in the wake of an incident. You can give you, and your staff, a great peace of mind by simply installing a drop safe and removing the potential for danger.

Either a drop safe or a depository safe will be helpful to small businesses that deal with lots of cash on a daily basis, especially if there are employees that have access to that money. For the most part, the drop safe and the depository safe are the same and serve similar purposes. With either model, money can be inserted without opening the safe door. However, most companies find that the drop safe is perfect for deposits that will be removed each night, while the depository safe gives more protection for those that wish to love money in the safe for longer periods of time.

Most companies find they can get by with a drop safe for daily business, but some might need a little more security. Depository safes can offer a few more security features, and that might make them the perfect safe choice for you. Just like drop safes, there is an opening where you can deposit money without opening the safe. However, this safe is more secure for overnight deposits. Many can be set to a time release, which means it can only be opened at specific hours. There are many other ways that depository safes can give better protection for your assets than drop safes, but they aren’t always the right answer.

What is the purpose of a drop safe? If you are a new business owner, perhaps running a boutique, a salon, or another small shop, then you might not be aware of the importance of one of these safes. When you have cash on the premises after a few hours, you will want to be able to put that cash into a safe place other than the registers. Thieves will immediately take cash from that location when they rob the store. However, with a drop safe, you will be able to take the extra cash from the register and keep it secure.

A drop safe can be a perfect addition to any small or medium-sized business. When you are considering buying a drop safe for your business, you need to make sure that you are buying the best safe for your needs. Each business is different, and not every safe is going to be a perfect fit. Consider the size of the safe that you need, as well as the location in the store. Make sure that the safe is installed properly as well, as this helps to deter would be thieves. Adding one of these safes to your other security efforts is a great idea.

A lot of businesses that deal with large amounts of cash will invest in a drop safe or a depository safe to keep the money safe throughout the day. You should especially consider one of these choices if there are several employees that might have access to the cash. There are not many differences between the two, but the depository safe is usually larger and has stronger security features. If you just need to keep cash safe through an evening shift before dropping it all at the bank, then a drop safe will usually cover it. To keep the money safe overnight, though, consider the depository safe.

They’ve thought of everything with this drop safe. Not only is it designed to handle numerous drops during the day with a quick-entry keypad for managers, but thieves who attempt to figure out the keypad code are locked out for a period of time, making their efforts more likely to be discovered.
The anti-fish baffle completely prevents anyone from accessing the safe through the drop door, making it one of the most secure drop safes you can buy.
If the keypad is pried off, further security measures lock in place with the dead bar, making door removal basically impossible.
While most drop safes are flimsy, and only good at keeping “honest people honest”, this safe allows any manager to have peace of mind that this safe will keep deposits on lockdown for extended shifts, and even overnight drops when emergencies arise. What’s better, the safe combination can be changed in seconds, so places with high employee turnover don’t have to add a lengthy safe process to their bottom line.
Overall, this is a great investment for any business looking for an effective, theft-proof drop safe. These models are also being redone. I will get you more later. But just a peak into the future….largest bolts on a drop safe of this size in the industry plus thicker steel. HDS-2014k

Many companies that employ a fairly large number of employees will invest in a drop safe, such as the Protex FDD3020. These safes are meant to keep small deposits of cash safe throughout an entire shift, and away from the hands of the employees. They have excellent security measures in place, such as penalties for the wrong combination, and spring loaded re-locking mechanisms. Several models even have “shark teeth” near the depository to keep thieves from fishing the money out with their hands or an instrument. Never again will you experience a shortage in your deposit for the day.
