Cool Console Vault Installed - Full Floor Console

Received the Console Vault today and decided to install in the 100+ degree Texas heat.

While ordering you can choose between 3 lock options, Barrel key, 3-digit combo, or 4-digit combo. For some reason I thought it said 4-digit digital combo, meaning without looking I could press the buttons in a specific order, open the safe, and shoot the crap out of you.

This is not the case, it's just an extra digit on a simple combination lock.

The unit is advertised as a simple install that takes 10-15 minutes. You simply set the combination (extremely easy) and set the unit into your console. It comes with 4 "self-tapping" screws that you screw into the ABS plastic of your console from within the vault.

Sounds easy. It's not. The "self-tapping" screws don't really tap themselves, rather, just move the plastic away. So my little brain thought - C-Clamp, more pressure for the screw to have against the plastic.

Nope.

So I pre-drilled the areas using the vault as a template after about 20 minutes of awkward bent wrist agonizing twisting.This made the install more plausible and "simple".

The vault.





The Victim



Drop the vault in.



Begin to screw in screws per instructions









Drill it like it owes you money.



Screw it again.



Profit!





Seems pretty secure. Enough space for important things like the VMDS
