How to Mount a Safe to the Floor

Bolt Down Kits and Mounting Brackets
Many businesses and homeowners have the need to bolt down a safe to the floor or attach it to the wall for security and theft reasons. There are several drop safes and depository safes that come standard with "bolt down kits" to easily add this burglary protection.

As an example we will take a look at the Fire Fyter Wall/Floor Safe instructions shown in the image above.

Some Safes You Shouldn't Bolt Down
Keep in mind that if you purchase a fire safe that it's not advised that you drill holes in the sides or bottom to bolt it to the floor or wall. This will not only void your warranty but could make the fire rating null and void. Only bolt down a safe that has holes pre-drill in the base or attached mounting plates!
