large safe purchase...


I know this may not be the place but I am just wondering if anyone has bought a Cannon Safe before? If so, are you happy with it?

Costco has one that looks pretty nice and browsing around the web it looks to be a pretty good deal. Costco usually carries pretty good quality stuff and I am in the market for a big safe to store all kinds of stuff in. Here is the one I am looking at:

I don't have one. But, here is the same safe on Cabela's Website (at $899.00) with 5 reviews of it showing a customer rating of = 5 stars.

Cannon is a good brand name

The UL rating only applies to the Sargent and Greenleaf lock made in good ol KY USA.

Make sure you bolt the safe down only thru the holes provided since its only 450 pounds.. UL says bolt down on anything under 750.

Get the dehumidifier or poly bag anything that will rust. Fireproofing emits moisture... Open the safe once a week for awhile to let it dry out.

This safe will not protect computer media in a fire since it needs a much higher protection rating.

Fixed sleeve anchors work best for your bolt down versus lags and bolts if your bolting to concrete. 1/2" or 5/8"

Good luck!

By fixed sleeve, you mean like the RedHead anchors you pound into the hole and use a bolt to screw into it? I used them for my JD Squared tube bender and they work great:

I like the fixed sleeve anchors [I think they call them dynabolts in Red Head] since they are all one peice versus a drop in anchor and seperate bolt. It allows you to do it all thru the hole in one application without having to move a 450 pound safe.

My safe bolt down guys used to use the drop in anchors but prefer the fixed sleeves for ease of use.
