Are Liberty Safes Used Only for Guns?

No question that when most people hear “Liberty Safe,” they think about keeping guns locked away and secure. Sure, America’s #1 safe manufacturer produces the finest gun safes money can buy. But Liberty also offers several models that are explicitly used for securing household valuables that you don’t want getting into the wrong hands or damaged. 

From the Home Safe 8 to the Premium LX Home Safe 17, there are seven different models to consider if you’re looking to protect important documents, jewelry, collectibles, or any other types of household items. Below, we’ll touch on what each model can offer and discuss some essential belongings that every homeowner should store in a safe.



No matter what model you choose, your Liberty Home Safe will provide unmatched protection from fire and theft. You’ll also get the best security features on the market, including a digital lock and backlit keypad for easier access at night. And these safes look really, really good. Your Liberty Home Safe will add appeal to any room or office thanks to contemporary styling and practical sizing. 

Let’s take a quick look at the various models so that you can determine which one will best meet your needs:

Liberty Home Series 

The standard Home Safe series is an excellent security choice for the home or office. With each model, you’ll get an 83,000 BTU rating and 60 minutes of fire protection at 1,200° F to go with a UL security listing. The three models are broken down by size (exterior cubic feet): Home Safe 8, 12, and 17. 

The Home Safe 8 is small enough to hide nearly anywhere, and it works great for storing jewelry and other small valuables. The Home Safe 12 is large enough to hold documents and smaller firearms, but it can also fit seamlessly into any space. If you want even more storage space, the Home Safe 17 is your best bet. 

Liberty Premium LX Home Series

Security and protection go even further with the Liberty Premium LX Home Safe series. These UL-certified models are rated at 95,000 BTU and provide 90 minutes of fire protection (1,200° F). While Liberty gives its standard Home series a Level 2 security rating, it rates all Premium LX models at Level 3. These safes come with a thicker steel body and larger bolts, among other features, and they simply wipe out the competition across the board. 

You can store the petite Premium LX Home 05 in a closet or cabinet. The 08 and 12 can be easily concealed in most spaces, and the 17 is the ultimate home safe for securing long guns, rifles, and bigger household belongings. 


Every home could benefit from having at least one dependable safe. Whether or not you’re a gun owner, you likely have belongings that you want to be secured and protected from damage and destruction. 

Maybe you have collectibles, family heirlooms, photo albums, or external hard drives that contain essential information. Maybe you have pieces of jewelry that are sentimental and/or worth more than your house. Or perhaps you invest in precious metals, have a safe deposit box key, or keep a stash of emergency cash. All of these are things that you want safeguarded from theft, fire, and other risks. 

Finally, a home safe is the perfect place to keep important legal and financial documents. Here are some types of documents that are worth protecting:

  • Social security cards
  • Birth certificates
  • Property titles
  • Passports
  • Wills and living trusts
  • Health care proxies
  • Medical and emergency information
  • Insurance policies
  • Financial account information

While these are some general ideas for what you can keep in a home safe, the possibilities don’t end here. Every household is unique, so it comes down to what the most valuable and priceless items are to you and your loved ones. 

The Bottom Line

Safes can be used to store a lot more than just firearms. If there are any household items that you want to protect or limit access to, then investing in a reliable home safe is the way to go. And it doesn’t get more reliable than a Liberty home safe. Built to withstand unbelievably high temperatures and impact, every Liberty safe is guaranteed to provide unmatched protection.
