Simple and effective. Key operated safe locks allow a simplistic method of opening a safe as there are minimal moving components that needs to function to allow the lock to open. It is extremely important to note that not all key locks are equal in the level of security they offer. Many cheap safes will utilize imported or inferior key locks that are able to be easily manipulated or picked open, allowing entry to the safe. High security key locks, such as those made by K.J Ross in Victoria, provide exceptional precision and security, which translates to an effective and reliable key locking solution. There are many different types of key locks that are commonly adapted to safes, however all safes sold through Safe Central will use only the highest security models and brands. When considering a key lock on your safe, think about the way you will handle the key, whether it requires carrying it around at all times, or if you will need to pass the key between users to allow access. Due to the thickness of the safe door, safe keys can be required to be up to 200-300mm in length and may not be easily carried. Also, it can be difficult to control the number of keys in existence as duplicate keys can be produced.
