Wertheim safes are equipped with certified double-bit locks and are delivered in standard with 2 keys. Key locks in safes of grade III and higher are changeable, which means, that in case of a key loss, the lock can be adjusted to new keys without changing the lock (one old key has to be available anyway).
Advantages of double-bit locks
You don’t need to remember any code and the safe can be opened with the key quickly and easily. Furthermore, it is always easy to know who is/are the owner(s) of the keys to the safe.
Disadvantages of double-bit locks
The key storage must be carefully considered. Wearing a safe key on a bunch of keys reveals a skilled thieves eye that you are the owner of a safe. And in case of burglary, the thief will immediately notice that the safe is locked with a key and will search for this possibly. Insurances are free of liability, in case the safe was opened without burglary traces, e.g. with a key.
