This is a unique strong box, with instructions to arm it as a home alarm! (Wire the bottom leads to a trip wire and place it behind a door so if someone kicks the door or moves it, the alarm goes off) This could have been floor mounted, and If an attempt was made to lift the box, it would set off the alarm. This box is unique in that it is complete (minus of course, the battery and probably some of the alarm components) however it does have the cover for alarm, the battery door, instructions for setting the alarm and also the safe tray (which is often missing in many safes). The paper labels are even still present on the tray and very legible! It was made by Steel Can’t-Steal Box Corp, New York. There is even information about registering it with your local police dept. The outer casing is solid heavy duty steel. The door closes from the top and locks down with the turn of a key which is present. The key works as it should. There is chipping of the interior red paint, there is some minor surface rust/patina to the steel casing outside, and I’m not sure if the the entire alarm set up is present. The box weighs 12 pounds. It measures 9.5 inches long by 7.5 inches front to back and 5.5 inches tall. It is in excellent condition for it’s age and will make a nice addition to your collection.
