How to install a key safe by yourself?

Firstly, make sure you have the correct tools, which are listed in the instruction leaflet found in the outdoor key safe box. Please note that, as the UK’s most secure mechanical devices, our Supra C500 and P500 key safes boast an independent security accreditation from the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB). It is important that you closely follow each step of the installation process set out in the instruction leaflet, as this will ensure that your device maintains the LPCB attack standard. 

To make your key safe setup as seamless as possible, we supply all the accessories you will need, including a template and four self-tapping masonry screws that remove the need for fiddly wall plugs.  

If you find that you don’t have the right drill bit to hand, no problem! We also offer a separate fitting pack which includes a masonry drill bit and a torx head screwdriver so you’ll have everything you need. 

Home keysafe installation should be quick and easy but if you do need some extra assistance, we have created a handy installation video which you can follow, step by step. If you have any additional questions around Key safe installation, or anything else, take a look at our FAQ page.
