When shopping luxury brandkast the selection of the lock is an important decision. Once you have chosen a good quality home jewelry safe and determined what size safe you need it is time to consider the lock. While locks can be changed later on it is in your best interest to select the most appropriate lock for your jewelry safe right up front.First, be sure you are only considering locks that are Underwriter Laboratories (U.L.) listed as high security locks. These are the only locks that will provide the protection you want for your luxury safe and the jewelry inside! There are three different styles of locks that may listed by U.L. as high security, the traditional combination lock, the electronic lock and the biometric lock
The traditional tumbler lock has a solid look that many folks feel comfortable with. But more important than look is functionality and for the less experienced home jewelry safe user these locks can be quite cumbersome to open. The high security combination lock typically has a three digit combination. The tumbler is typically rotated four times left to the first number, three times right to the second number and two times left to the third number finishing with a turn to the right.
While this is not necessarily difficult, it is time consuming and must be done with precision. Many of us need glasses to accomplish this task as our eyes need a bit of help to see the small tick marks. The combination lock provides reliable and secure access to home safes but is not the fastest way to get into your luxury safe.Electronic or digital locks are very popular due to the quick and convenient access they provide to the contents of jewelry safes. Along with your home jewelry safe you will receive lock instructions that guide you in simple instructions on opening your safe and setting your own combination.
