What is a Relocker?

Whats a relocker?

A relocker adds reinforcement to the safe door when under attack.

It's a bolt within the door of your safe normally located behind the fire proofing material and within the security area of the dial or keypad. (It's NOT the large locking bolts of the door that you can see.) If a safe is under attack by tools such as drills, hammer, crowbars or what ever is available. The impact of these tools on the safe can trigger the spring loaded relocker bolt thus adding reinforcement to the bolts in the door to keep them from being breached. Note that once a relocker is fired you will have to contact an ALOA locksmith member to gain access for you. Just dialing the combination will NOT get you into the safe. Most are made of metal and designed to trigger once a metal piece is broken within the lock or wall of the safe. Which brings me to a glass relocker.

A glass relocker is more sensitive to impacts from a crow bar or sledge hammer smashing this glass part of the safe. This is why you normally see glass relockers in higher end safes. For those of you that purchase one of these safes there is a small cotter pin that must be removed once the safe is in place.(this is only in with safes with a glass relocker) It's import to remember to save the cotter pin by taping it to the inside of the door so that you may reapply it when you move the safe. Your safe will come with instructions on how to remove and apply the cotter pin. You will often hear me say "time against theft and fire" on our website. Once the relocker has fired the thief will have to spend more time to gain access to the safe. Time is not a luxury that a thief has when he is robbing.

At this point it is important to point our that most Home Safes, residential safes, Sentry Safes, small metal boxes or safes, fireproof home safes, and most inexpensive models don't have a relocker. If you are not sure if the model you are looking at has a relocker please call us. But as a general rule. A safe without a Group ll lock is a safe without a relocker.

High security safes, 2 hour fireproof safes, office safes, gun safes (such as Cannon, Diamond Back, Honeywell, and American Security) , any safe with a group ll lock like a depository or floor safe, safes with Sargent & Greenleaf locks, safes with LaGard electronic keypads, and Fireking safes all have relockers. Also, TL rated safes often have multiple relockers within the wall of the safe. All cause the thief a huge burden of time in trying to break into the safe. Your security is important to us so feel free to call and discuss your situation with us. Thanks, Zack and your friends at 866-841-3790
