Abusive Damage Resistant Linkage By Eliminating All Unnecessary Moving And Problematic Parts
 Sturdy Safe is the only gun safe company currently manufacturing that eliminated the need for problematic clutches and shear pins that are designed to break within the safe when force is applied. By doing so, we have removed the possibility of getting locked out and needing a locksmith entry or repairs if they somehow break by simple everyday use or even a little abuse, such as, accidentally clamping down on a strap from a rifle, or minor jerking on the handle while locked. The only reason a Sturdy Safe owner would need a locksmith entry, is if they lost the combination, or if the dial was struck hard enough to break it. To circumvent the need for a clutch, it is necessary to make the linkage and the lock so strong, that no amount of human force applied to the handle shaft can damage either like shown in our video. Sturdy Safe has about 80% less moving parts than other safes on the market. Less moving parts means less parts that can potentially break or slip. This gives us the advantage of making what's left over 4 times stronger than it needs to be.

Proof Linkage Problems Exist In Competitors Gun Safes

Look at a safes full warranty to see what voids it, because it will state something like: *Don't slam the door. Extreme shock can damage the lock or jam the bolt work. *Don't shut the door with the bolt work in the locked position. Damage to the bolt work and marring the safe’s finish may result. *Don't stack contents of the safe so that the door must be forced shut. Jamming of the bolt work may result.


Watch as this Sturdy Safe, with 2 deadbolts removed on the attacked side, gets pry barred. The only other alteration made was creating a small notch to allow the door to accept a crow bar.

8 Unbendable And Undamageable Fully Supported Deadbolts That Clamps The Door Shut

Sturdy Safes' deadbolt housing helps guide and reinforce the moving deadbolts to align properly no matter what's in the way. Even with tremendous amounts of force, our deadbolts will not deviate from their alignment. Shear strength of our 7/8" dead bolts is about 30,000lbs (8 deadbolts total). This means, no amount of prying will cause the deadbolts to move out of position or to bend like they did in this prybar video. If someone was to accidentally clampdown on a rag or a strap from a rifle while trying to close the door, Sturdy Safes are unaffected. Accidentally jamming the deadbolts on most of our competitors safes in this manor can cause the clutch to slip (which locks you out, and requires a locksmith opening). This video will show how to test you safe for dead bolt support strength. Be leery of companies who boast of how thick, long, or how many deadbolts their safes have. 8 deadbolts are more than enough to secure a door on a safe that's using thick steel. View how Sturdy Gun Safe tests a safe for damage resistant deadbolts, and more example of what we are talking about.

Watch as Terry beats the deadbolts of a Sturdy Safe with a 9lb. sledge hammer! It remains locked, and he's still able to open the safe afterwards.You can't do this to any safe on the market without damage to the linkage, clutch or shear pins, which will require a locksmith to open it and repairs.
Free of Servicing And Repairs
Sturdy Safe linkage will never need to be serviced, nor will it break, even with years of abuse. We offer a lifetime warranty to back up this claim. Even in heavy use environments (like sheriff departments), with 20 or more openings a day, our safes have never had a single failure in 30 years. The only thing an owner might want to do after (many years) is oil the deadbolts, if the handle bar gets stiffer over time, or replace an electronic lock after 9-12 years.

Sargent And Greenleaf Premium Grade Group II Combination 
Sturdy Safe use a UL rated group II premium grade, commercial combination lock by S&G (model "6730"). All group II S&G dials are NOT the same. S&G recommends this model to be used on all gun safes, however, few do because of the cost. This combination is key changeable, it's easy to set the combination number. It's bolted to a proper raised mount, with a relock and hardplate that slipped in between. Guaranteed for a lifetime to work.
2 Independent Re-Locks
 Sturdy Gun Safes' patented, pressure activated relocker cannot be easily defeated. When one is involved in a crash in a newer model car, the car will collapse in a very predictable way; this is because the engineers have designed the car to do just that. In much the same way, Sturdy Safe has designed their re-lock system to engage in a particular manner. The re-lock engages in accordance with the amount of force being used in the attack. It's a smart relock design because it will only fire when it's needed, therefore, it will not lock you out (requiring a locksmith entry) with minor abuse, or everyday use. It's also protected behind the hard plate, so once engaged, it's difficult to disengage. The other re-lock can be found the S&G combination box.
Combination Deadbolt Reinforcement
 Sturdy Gun Safe does not rely on the strength of combination box for the needed strength of the lock system like most manufacturers do. Instead, we install a combination deadbolt reinforcement, which strengthens the lock system to 16,000 pounds of resistance. This helps make our safe the most durable, abusive-resistant safe on the market.

Drill Punch Resistant Hardened Hardplate Backed By A Relocker

Sturdy Safe has a properly mounted hardplate that helps protect against drilling, punching, or manipulation of the combination box, or the re-lockers. Our oversized hardplate also helps protect the primary piece of linkage that is being locked out (by the combination box) all the way to its source. In addition, it's not just thick, it's hardened all the way through.


This is how easy it is to break into some 10 gauge imported gun safes.
