    Just out of idle curiosity is there any sort of maintenance one should plan on for a safe?

    All of my safes are S&B mechanical locks and frankly nothing has been done to them in years. I don't open them often but I am curious if one should ever do anything to them.

    Peter I have a Browning Pro Steel door on my vault and it's been in place for more than 35 years. Never done any maintenance and don't plan to.

    All mechanical devices require maintenance, or the risk of failure increases.

    We still maintain locks on high end units that would be very expensive to deal with in the event of a failure. The lower end lock prices have dropped low enough, that it is almost as inexpensive to replace the entire lock than it is to properly service it.

    I usually advise users to pay attention to how your lock operates. If the lock gives any sign or symptom out of the ordinary, have it looked at right away.
