Dorm or RV Safe

Video Transcript:

Hi, I am John, with Dean Safe Company. I just want to show you dormitory safe and some of the features. It turns out that this is the only safe that was actually designed specifically to go into a college dormitory. Because of that, it also turns out it works great in RVs, and under your desk, and a lot of situations where a conventional safe might not be quite as good.

I want to show you some of those features right now. One of the unique features oddly enough is the size, a lot of so-called dorm room safes are horizontal which means if you put them on the ground or bolt them onto the ground, you literally have to get on to your hands and knees or your belly to see what's inside. So this gives you a much better view. It also takes up less square footage, that's why it is so ideal to put into an RV, or into a dorm room, or under your desk. The depth of this is fourteen inches, it is the same depth as a hanger is long. So it will go into a closet quite handily, and if you can get a hanger in there, this will fit in there. I think that's a pretty good feature.

I would like to show you the lock. The lock is very unique, it can be opened three different ways. One way is with the driver's license or a credit card. Which is really kinda neat. That makes sure that you are the only one who can open it up, or at least the person with the credit card. You can also use a credit card and four digits, or you can just use four digits. You would hit one-two-three-four, (or hit your four digits which you are going to program in) and then it opens up. I would like to point out that it takes a standard nine volt battery, available from the outside. Which is much better then having it on the inside. If it is on the inside you always need a key to override it, or something to get into it. Keys can be lost, then you become vulnerable.

The inside has a lot of nice features. It has got some rubber coating on the floors of the three shelves, and on the edges, so you don't have any sharp edges to damage your good stuff. You can see a whole lot of stuff, I have a seventeen inch laptop in here. My favorite little laptop. It looks like it can actually, probably, fit a nineteen inch laptop in there. You get three separate shelves to keep everything separated, put your passports, your credit cards, throw your purse in there, whatever you need to put in there.

You have instructions on the back, on how to reprogram, because once you program, you probably tend not to do it for a while. You may forget how to do it, so it is always with you. Here is your programming button. You have two locking bars, which come out. You have a light interior, so it is not like you looking into a cave. This makes it really handy, particularly if it is under a desk or if you have it in the closet. I would also like to point out there are wire holes here, and the wire holes are here for a couple reasons. You may want to charge your laptop, or your camera, whatever else you have while it is in the safe. You know the bad news about a laptops is that it they are portable - that is also the good news, they are portable, and they will take off. This way you can secure the product while you're putting some juice to it, which is really nice. You can put a power strip in there and just leave it in there.

You can also secure it with cables. Could you hand me those cables over there. There is all kinds of stuff on the market, that actually works pretty good. Here is a little one by Master and you can run this around some pipes or whatever. There is all kinds, here is another one, by Master I actually use this a lot. I have got on my bicycle, to keep my bicycle helmet secured. There are some heavier duty cables, just in case you cannot bolt them down.

Now the safe is actually designed to be bolted down. It does come with a bolt downplate and the plate is bolted into position, and this slides on, and is screwed on, and that locks it down. Because even though this is steel, it is not all that heavy, and somebody could pick it up and carry it off. So you do need to secure it. There is no doubt about that. This plate cannot be accessed from the outside, only from the inside of the safe. So you are pretty safe there.

I just wanted to show you this product. It is selling very well to a lot of colleges and universities, but not all of them have it yet. So if you're sending somebody way to school, this would be a great gift. It is more expensive than the plastic ones. But it is designed better, it has more features, it is stronger and blah, blah, blah. It is a good little unit. Thank you.
