Other Transporting a Safe
Whether you are transporting your safe to a different location of the house, or moving across the country, the idea of moving the heavy object around, with or without things inside, can be a daunting task, especially when stairs are involved. Our safes can weigh well over a thousand pounds, for a couple of different reasons.
Why they are heavy
In most situations, a large gun safe isn’t attached to the wall or floor in any way, but is just placed on the ground. The locking mechanisms and thick door will keep potential thieves from taking anything out, but this will do you no good if they can easily pick it up and take it out, leaving themselves more time with the safe. When burglars break into a home, they are looking for the easiest targets, and won’t linger at a heavy safe.
Not only is your safe more protected because of its weight, but the elements that go inside it are heavy. It takes a lot of strength to be impenetrable. Just by the locking mechanisms, and tough exterior your safe has, the pounds really pack on.
Transporting your safe can be difficult. Before you order your safe, find a place for it in your home, and commit to keeping it there for the duration of your time in your home. Avoid having to transport it. As much as we try, things happen, and it may be necessary to have your safe moved. Have the resources you need to get the job done safely.
Invest in a furniture dolly. This is a small investment for the help it will bring. Learn how to use them, and use it to transport the safe. Although this won’t do you as much good going up stairs, it will help immensely when moving across a flat surface.
Enlist the help of others. Whether you get a group of friends and family members, or hire professional help, this is not a task you should take on alone. Be sure to assess just how big your safe is, and how many people it will take to move it. If you are going to need to move it in a particularly cumbersome place, make sure to get the right help.
Before moving your Cannon Safe, find out the details about it, such as weight and dimensions. This will help you move it in a safer and more efficient manner. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, to keep from harming yourself during the move.
Other Why You Need EMP Technology
Your safe is all about keeping your belongings protected. It is crucial to get the best safe technology available to ensure you won’t have any problems, from break-ins to young hands. For your next safe, consider investing in one with the EMP locking system. This will give you more peace of mind than anything else.
What is it?
Electronic-mechanical protection is the best way to keep your electrical lock protected. The biggest threat to your lock comes from an electromagnetic pulse. This can be caused by a number of different things, most dramatically nuclear detonation, but in some situations, smaller things can cause problems such as floods and other natural disasters.
To prevent these events from disabling the lock on your safe, consider investing in the EMP technology. This will prevent you from being crippled by the situation. If this should happen, your safe will have a second EMP lock that will allow you to manually use your combination to unlock the safe.
Why choose it?
Homeowners know that in emergency situations, you may need access to your safe in a short amount of time. This means investing in the fastest and most reliable lock available on the market. Before the emergence of EMP technology, homeowners were taking a risk with a fast and convenient electronic lock. There was always a chance of an electromagnetic pulse making it impossible to enter the safe.
With this new technology, a mechanical lock can be used in the worst emergency situations. You won’t have to feel nervous that your safe won’t work when you want it to. Instead feel confident that if one mechanism fails, you have a guaranteed backup ready for you.
The dual-access locking system is the easiest way to feel confident that in any situation you will be ready; whether that includes an intruder entering your home unexpectedly or natural disaster calls for quick evacuation. Not only will you get your items as quick as possible, but, in the case of natural disaster, should these weather conditions ever damage the electronic lock, you will have a second entrance into your safe.
Don’t be caught off guard when it comes to the protection of your belongings. Invest in the best technology, and the best safe. At Cannon Safe, we offer EMP technology with the Armory Series, and Cannon’s Commander. Decide which safe best fits your situation and being protecting your belongings and family from harm.

Other Famous Safe Cracking Scenes in Movies
Some of the most dramatic movie scenes come from cracking the case. All throughout the movie, the mystery remains, until everything comes together. Some of the most intense of these scenes come from those cracking the code on safes. Various movies have tried different ways to show breaking into safes. Some force entry by determining the combination, or finding the key somewhere convenient. In these methods, usually a listening device is used to hear the clicks of the rotary combination on the lock. Other films show well thought through plans that involve defacing the vault to enter, sometimes using explosives to reach the contents.
Ocean’s ElevenOcean’s Eleven is one of the most iconic comedy-crime films today. The 2001 remake depicts some of the same elements as the original produced in 1960. With a full cast of criminals ready to break into whatever they can, there is no shortage of attempts to break into safes in this movie, and the two following it. The recruits that Danny Ocean brings to his group after being released from prison work together to commit crime. Through social engineering and physically sabotaging security systems in the film, they are able to break into the safe.
The Italian JobIn The Italian Job, the whole plot deals with trying to break into a safe. John Bridger has put together this final job, along with his daughter Stella. The safe they recover is worth millions in gold. Although they are initially able to steal the safe, they run into unexpected problems along the way. By the end of the film, Stella is able to crack the safe. Those individuals remaining as part of the team split the money in equal proportions and go their separate ways. Although these movies are fun to watch, nobody wants a safe that can be broken into, even by professionals. Give us a call to purchase some of the most secure safes available. Keep your belongings safe no matter what happens. By Cassie Costner
