The First Alert 6740F 7.7 Cubic-Foot Protector Executive/Gun Safe protects your valuables from theft and fire. This durable safe offers plenty of storage space while preventing children, thieves, or anyone else without combination from accessing your firearms. The safe features a combination dial lock for entry. The Safe also comes equipped with 5 Live Door Bolts, Pry- Resistant Concealed Hinges, 2 Adjustable shelves, and removable 12 to 14 gun rack. The safe comes fully carpeted with a rubber floor mat and all the necessary mounting hardware. With the uncluttered, modern look of an updated storage locker, the 6740F is an attractive unit that's ideal for storage in basements, garages, attics, or storage sheds. Its forest green color and four-sided design gives it a sleek profile, while its heavy-duty steel construction ensures years of reliable use.
Thieves often disable and gain entry to a safe by prying it open at or near the hinges. Because of this, the 6740F boasts concealed interior door hinges to prevent thieves from using a crowbar or other device to reveal the contents of the safe. To ensure optimum security, the 6740F includes five live-locking solid steel bolts that secure the door and protect the seal.
One of the 6740F's key protective features is its ability to maintain a safe interior temperature even when fire rages outside the safe. For example, if the surrounding temperature hits 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, the interior of the safe will remain below 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius) for a full 20 minutes, helping to prevent serious damage to your valuables.
The 6740F offers ample space and several storage options to protect your items while they're locked away. The safe is fully carpeted and includes a rubber floor mat, helping to protect your items from accidental scratches or wear. Two adjustable shelves combine with an adjustable gun rack to hold 12 to 14 guns (depending on size). For added convenience, there's also a key rack on the inside of the door, and the included mounting hardware lets you lock down the unit by securing it to either a floor or wall.

Quality Safe for the Money - 01/28/2016
Reviewer: Christopher Marciano
Overall, Its a solid safe for the money. There are those on the internet that make it seem like anything less than a $5,000 safe is a waste of money. No safe will keep out a determined thief with infinite time on his hands, but this will certain keep out the riff-raff looking for an easy score. DIY Improvements: The safe is small enough that you can put it in places like a closet that make it harder for a thief to use a crowbar for leverage or have room to swing an axe. In between the safe and the wall, I also filled the gap with cement board, which will improve the fire rating. With correct placement and a little DIY, you can reduce the threat from thieves and fires. Construction: I wish the had stated thicknesses in the description. Id have to re-measure to confirm, but I believe the front door plate is about 1/5 inch thick and the sides are either 12 or 13 gauge steel. The combination dial works well and smoothly. Door opens smoothly. The dimensions are accurate i.e., it is 21.00 wide, not 21 1/4 and the depth includes the handle. Space: It is a billed as a 12-gun safe, and like every safe, that means it could hold 12 Crickett youth rifles or 12 breakaway .410 shotguns. In reality, itll depends on which guns you have. I could see being able to store 9 guns, where 3 of them have optics. Shelves: It comes with a rubber floor mat and two adjustable shelves. Shelf height in the attached photo allows for rifles with up to 24 barrels. The shelves are easily adjustable with the clips. Moving Around: It is quite heavy, but manageable. The delivery guy helped me in the front door with it. By myself, I was able to get it off the pallet. I put some self adhesive felt furniture pads underneath it, which allowed me to easily slide it around. Mounting: There are two floor mounting holes and two rear mounting holes. The holes in the back are not in the middle of the safe, but on the sides one is on the near the top and the other is near the bottom. The holes are 5/8 wide. It came with two 3/8, 3 lag screws and two drywall anchors. These are useful for the rear holes if you are not lined up into a stud. There are some who dont like mounting to a wall in addition to the floor, but everyone says mounting to the floor is the most important. I went out and got two concrete anchors. Move it into place before drilling. Drilling into concrete is tough work so make sure you have a hammer drill. If you have a post-tension concrete slab, dont drill into it. Basis for Star Rating: I wouldnt give a $500 safe a one-star rating because it isnt as hefty as a $5,000 safe. Thats silly. Overall, I am pleased with the safe. The only thing I didnt like was that the holes in the fire protectant material was off-center from the holes in the steel.
