We’ve added the Safe Deposit page to our newly launched Safe and Vault section of the Library. The Safe Deposit page is dedicated to safe deposit boxes, locks, and parts. In addition to our usual list of current manufacturers, we’ve included a list of safe deposit manufacturers that have either been acquired, discontinued, or went defunct. These manufacturers include: Corbin Cabinet Lock, Eagle Lock Company, Herring-Hall-Marvin (H.H.M.) Safe Company, Ilco, L.L. Bates Company, LeFebure Corp., Miles-Osbourne, Mosler Safe Company, Precision Products Inc., Victor Safe, Yale & Towne Manufacturing Company, and the York Safe & Lock Company.
There’s also plenty of supplemental material in the Resources tab, including:
- Sargent & Greenleaf Safe Deposit Glossary
- TimeMaster Inc. Safe Deposit Lock Reference Guide
- The Legal History of Safekeeping and Safe Deposit Activities in the United States by Richard A. Lord, Campbell University School of Law
- The History of the Safe Deposit Box
And as always, we’ve included Manufacturer’s Literature and Manuals, this time for BlueGrass Locks, Bullseye S.D. Locks, LLC, and Sargent & Greenleaf.
