No. 4

The lock and dial on this LG 3330 was mounted very well. Unfortunately it took me 3 hours to open it. The gate on W1 was actually the first which I had.

The story of the safe is a very common one. It sat around for some years unused and unlocked. Then somebody spinned the dial.

I am considering getting safe stickers for my car. One sticker per opened safe.

Three hours is fast.........for me anyways.
I like the sticker idea.

Fantastic!!

Now the dial - that looks much different than what we're use to seeing.
Is that normal there to see that type of dial connected to a LaGard?

From what I can tell from your pic, it looks ike it could make for a
more time-consuming manipulation than would the usual 1777 dial.

It probably comes from the Mauer-part of the company from what the name sounds:

So it might be only old here in Germany or Europe.

I am not a good/fast dialer, so I am not the best person to make a statement regarding dial usage, but using the tiny knob in the middle was IMHO not comfortable.

Vistaprint makes stickers for windows, but they have only 75ppi.

Btw. this safe has already been manipulated open about 10 years ago by the person who passed this job to me. So this safe evaded already two times a forceful entry.
