Key Safes

Updated on June 19, 2013

Key safe can save you from calling a locksmith

Are you the type of person who continually locks their keys inside their house or unit. Well our latest stocked product might be just what you have been looking for. Direct access key safes are a small lockable safe, just big enough to fit a set of keys in. They can be installed by a locksmith on a door or wall and can be used in an emergency if you ever get locked outside your home.

Key Safe for the Elderly

Key safes can also have other uses. They can be used to hold an emergency key in the case of an accident. Keys you do not want the general public to have access to, but need to be able to access in a hurry are kept safe in a key safe.

A security safe is useful for the elderly, disabled and people in need of outside care. A carer can be given access to the key safe to get the key to unlock the door. Simply removing the container or removing the keys inside will ensure access in no longer given. Using the safe this way ensures multiple care givers can open the doors and the keys are kept safe and secure.

Many uses for Industry

There are many other uses. You might want to install it next to a gate. Anyone who can open the safe can then open the gate. Remote areas, where it is not practical to give people keys are a good use for this product.

Mining and industry can also use key safes when they have multiple workers who need access to a door, gate, area or machinery. This cuts down on the number of keys required to be cut for any one lock. It also makes knowing who has access to the keys much easier.

Have a Key Safe fitted by a Locksmith

Key safes are available in either a bolt to the wall design or in a padlock type design that can be attached to something solid. The wall mounted design can be anchored to timber or a metal frame with screws on tho a concrete wall with masonry bolts. The padlock design can be attached to the grille in a security door or some other attachment. A security eye can be installed to attach the padlock mounting if needed. When installing it is always good to check the anchoring material to make sure it is sturdy enough to securely hold the safe in position. Poor anchoring would not be advised if it holds a key to hour home.

      Hi Alexi,

      Some of them are a bit ordinary. You probably would not want to lock up your keys in one on a regular basis. Some of the combination boxes are fairly easy to break into.

      Be a bit careful with them.

      How safe is it to use these things? I mean can my neighbour open it without me knowing and get my apartment key? I want to let my brother into my apartment when he comes, but do not want to let in anyone else. i have the good locks fitted to the doors. Should I trust these things really?
