Between 1990 and June 1993 a couple of thousand man hours was invested in the design, material selection, manufacturing techniques and testing of what we originally named mk2 Hide Away Safe. In 1993 after nearly 3 years of research and development the Australia designed and manufactured mk2 Hide Away Safe became available for sale.
The Hide Away Safe designed to be installed in a:
Then in early 1995 we read statistics about the increasing theft of laptops being stolen from homes and cars. We looked but there was nothing sold world-wide to specifically secure a Laptop when left unattended in a Vehicle, Residential Home, Office including a Caravan or Motor Home.
So we decided to develop a larger version of the mk2 Hide Away Safe, it took a year to develop it, make the moulds and test. Then early in 1996 it was available for sale.
What did we name it, you guest it we named it Laptop Safe.
Later in 1996 we had enquires for the Laptop Safe but not to secure a Laptop and decided to create another name for it mk3 Hide Away Safe. We use this name when we are marketing it to secure Cash, backed up data (opens in a new window) or any other small valuable items people want to secure in their Home, Vehicle, Caravan or Work Place.
Both mk2 Hide Away Safe and mk3 Hide Away Safe:
Take the Laptop Safe to another location where you have previously installed a Docking Station eg. in your Vehicle or Office then slide the Laptop Safe in and lock it with the supplied High Security Abloy Key.
The only difference between an mk2 and mk3 is the Dimensions and Weight, the mk3 is five times the size of the mk2.
When the Safe Box lid is closed and locked you can carry it like a brief case and any item in the insert boxes will not fall out because the convoluted foam on the lid covers the top of each insert box.
Flocking is a heavy duty automotive grade velvet/suede finish, used on past Ford LTD range on selected internal fixtures. The flocking is electrostatically fired into a special adhesive resulting in both a hard wearing and protective coating that puts a beautiful finishing touch to selected internal parts of the Hide Away Safe.
NB: The measurements in inches have been rounded off to the closest 0.25". For the exact size use the measurements in mm.
As you have previously read this High Security Safe is made from Lexan and comes in two parts, the Hide Away Safe and Docking Station that is installed to almost any flat surface on any angle even up side down then, the Hide Away Safe slides into the Docking Station and locked with the world's highest security Abloy Lock.
Lexan being Light-Weight and Virtually Indestructible and the method used to lock the Hide Away Safe in its Docking Station allows you to secure your valuables where you live, work or in any Vehicle.
Please Note: Install two or more Docking Stations allows you to move and secure the Hide Away Safe from one Docking Station to another eg, Home to Car, Car to work place and vice versa.
