6b. Locking Mechanism Benefits
BENEFITS of Liberty's LOCKING MECHANISMS
- The direct-drive cam mechanism (entry level safes) is a smooth direct-drive connection from the mechanism to the door bolts. It's simple, yet very effective in locking the safe.
- The DX-90 Monster Mech, over-center cam mechanism BETTER protects against side-bolt punching. The over-center cam removes all pressure from locking bolt with a unique "dead lock" system. This new mechanism is standard feature on all Liberty Tough Doors™ (Franklin and above safes).
- The GX-480 Monster Mech, adds a gear-drive feature to our BEST lock for gun safes, preventing s side-bolt punching and a smoother touch and feel in its operation.
All safe lock mechanisms include Liberty's slip-clutch feature. If the handle is torqued by a heavy pipe or wrench, the handle shaft "slips", releasing lock pressure and keeping it from breaking.
