Ross McLaughlin of CTV News “McLaughlin on Your Side” and Terry Whin-Yates from Mr. Locksmith demonstrtated a security flaw in a line of top selling Sentry safes makes them easy to break into. The issue is that the safes are not security safes but fire protection safes –something many people may not know.
CTV News tested two different fire SentrySafe models, SFW123GTF and SFW123FTC. Security expert Terry Whin-Yates demonstrated how easily they could be compromised, breaking into them in just a few seconds.
Terry Whin-Yates highly recommends a fire-rated burglary-proof safe approved by Underwriter Laboratories (UL). This is a unique product which has been extensively trialled and is not only certified as break-in proof but also fire resistant.
