Drop Safe Depository Safe Models RC-01k & RC-01c are the same safe but with different locks.Â The “K” stands for key and “C” stands for combination style lock.Â Many depository safes come with a choice of a dual key model or a combination model.Â The combination model can also be upgraded to an electronic keypad for faster entry to the drop safe.Â However, the key model can not be upgraded to an electronic keypad because of the way the bolt work is set up to take the dual key lock.
You will notice that it is a rotary hopper design.Â Which means put what you want in the top round tube then roll the handle and it will drop down below.Â Many depository safe makers believe that this is a better system to prevent theft from fishing.Â Which is taking a coat hanger and putting something on the end to make it sticky and “fishing” out dollor bills.Â Which I will grant you it does prevent that VERY well.Â However, there is a negative side to this type of system.
If you try to deposit something light, such as a single piece of paper, it may not fall out of the cylinder to the safe below.Â Because there is not enough weight in it.Â The other thing I have noticed also is that some people may have a large deposit that they want to drop and they will cram it into the cylinder.Â Then when they rotate it and want it to drop it won’t because its cramed in too tight to fall below.Â So you see, even Superman has kryptonite!
It is a very well made B Rated with drill resistant hard plate in the door and 2 1/2 inch thick door.Â Solid steel body and an extra 1/2 inch steel plate for the door.Â Take the extra step to bolt this to your floor and you have a fantastic depository safe that is ready for almost anything.
The lock on this unit is a Sargent & Greenleaf dial which is one of the best locks available in the world. Made in Kentucky by real American hands!Â
I give this drop safe a good thumbs up.
