    I just wanted to pass this along. I was looking for some lighting for inside my safe -- something that didn't involve drilling holes! :eek: So I picked up a set of these motion activated LED lights. I have a larger (15") version over the door from the barn into the house and they work great.

    In any event, I installed them and they provide a perfect amount of light inside the safe. They are rechargeable, so when starts to go low, just throw it on the cord (included) for an hour or so. How long they last depends on how much you open the safe. They come with a magnetic strip with a tape backing, so they are easy to install and remove. They worked so well that I got another set for the closet where I store my gun gear!

    My Liberty came with two battery operated LED light (motion activated); with the thin pins, they easily attach to the fabric lining inside the safe

    I found a under cabinet LED light at the $5 store. I put some velcro tabs on the back so it attaches to the carpet lining of the safe. It runs on 4AA batteries and has 2 switches. One keeps the light on, the other is a 1 minute timer. Nearly any light will work as long as it is bright enough.

    Stick on LED with remote. Switched out the 3 AAA batteries with wired dummies and wired them to a usb phone charge wall plug. Running 9 lights on one charger. Do same for curio cabinets.

    I think I bought (expensive) browning led lights. Motion activated and plugs in which is nice. Lights up the whole safe. Can position them how you want them.

    Mine arrived yesterday, and I got them installed this morning. I like the effect. It may need more tuning so that they don't interfere with each other.
