Introduction

Wall Safe »
Got something you need to protect? We all do: jewelry, passports, bank statements, legal documents. That's why many safe manufacturers now offer small, affordable safes. Although they're secure from burglary, most home safes—including the one that we installed—are not completely fireproof. You should keep any irreplaceable documents in a fireproof vault or bank safe-deposit box.

Here, we'll show you how to install Sentry's Steal-Safe Wall Safe (Model 7150) into a closet wall. This compact safe, which fits between wall studs spaced 16 in. on center, features all-steel construction and a dual-locking mechanism: You need a key as well as a three-digit combination to open it.
