 If you decide to install a safe, you need to consider several factors. For example, look out for a reputable brand, in this case, brand name does make a difference. Also, make sure there’s no big space between the body and the door, it makes the safe vulnerable. Any holes that have been pre-machined into the safe's body are another void to be concerned about. There are usually mounting holes that will be filled with bolts to prevent the safe from being moved. If these gaps remain unfilled, the safe becomes more vulnerable to moisture, heat, burglary, and other threats.
