    We just got back a safe we sent to the body shop to get painted. This thing's been somewhat of an adventure since the first time I laid eyes on it. A doorway had to be cut in a wall in order to pull this unit from where it was & put the new, larger, unit in.

    It's over 56" tall, though the interior is only 50" high, which means the walls are about 3" thick. However, considering that it's a TL30 with a two hour U.L. fire rating, I'm not surprised. I'd tell ya how much it weighs but it broke my bathroom scale!

    Then there's the one we bought at a garage sale yesterday. That was some sale tell ya what. You see for another coupla hundred bucks we coulda got the Cessna too! Literal garage sale, monster safe that has interior drops with time locks. Very cool to us locksmith types.

    I'm so used to customers exaggerations that I typically blow off claims that seem unusual. This is especially true when it comes to size and weight.

    About a year ago, I get a call from a property manager. One of their former tenants leaves a few safes behind, and the the new renter needs the space cleared for their use. He states that one of the safes is tall, at least 7 feet. We had ruled out that possibility of it being a modular vault or portavault, so I just assumed the safe was taller than he, and a "monster".

    When we show up to remove them, I'll be damned if that safe wasn't 7' tall. I have never seen a safe like this built that tall. Luckily they were going to rehab the entire space, as we had to cut a foot out of the top of every door way to get it out.

    This garage sale safe is a Mosler. It's 62" H X 28' X 28" & is a double stacker. The bottom is a lug door with two drops inside, one of which has a Mosler Defender 1060 timed knob on it. Not your everyday find. Thing probably weighs about 2200 lbs. The bottom doesn't have a U.L. tag on it that I can see, but it's a TL30, top's a B rate shelved loose store cabinet. Still, it's wild to find something like this in a household garage.

    I'm still thinking about the Cessna.

    I probably would have bought the Cessna had it fit on the truck. :D

    I don't think a Cessna will handle a monster like that. Better upgrade to a C-130. :D

    Makes me think of some ultra-industrial grade stacked washer and dryer.

    Are those separately locking compartments inside? That could give some interesting options to the right owner.

    Yes, the lower TL30 safe has two separate drop compartments in it. It's a fairly interesting unit.
