What does the VAULTEK VT20i have to offer when it comes to security? Short answer: a lot of good stuff. In fact, you will rarely see this many security features packed into a safe of this size.

Heavy-Duty Carbon Steel Construction

It’s built with 16-gauge carbon steel that gives the safe a sturdy and protective exterior. It has a weldless unibody design which eliminates weak spots and strengthens the safe. To make the exterior more durable it has a beautiful black powder coat finish.

Anti-Pry Construction

One of the most popular ways to breach a safe is with a crowbar or other types of prying tools. How does the VAULTEK VT20i combat this common form of attack?

They added protected hinges and anti-pry bars. Simple, yet highly effective. Protected hinges simply mean that the hinges are located inside the safe, hence can’t be breach from the outside.

The anti-pry bars adds additional support to the locking mechanism. This tiny feature will increase the strength of the lock by up to 400%.

Remember, if you ever plan to pry a VAULTEK VT20i – make sure to bring some serious tools.

Easy, Reliable & Quick Access

We just covered the security features and we could reveal that there are plenty of them. So, it would only be fair if there were plenty of ways to access the safe as well?

Well, that happens to be the case with the VAULTEK VT20i. While most of its competitors have at best three ways to access the safe – this safe has FOUR!

The main access points are the biometric fingerprint scanner and the electronic lock. The high-resolution biometric scanner offers quick and ridiculously easy access with your fingerprint. You can store up to 20 unique fingerprints and set two administrators.

Fully Equipped

To maximize your experience you will also get a bunch of awesome accessories. The laser cut keys, we mentioned earlier, will make sure you always have access to your safe. The steel security cable will allow you to secure the safe in your car when you are on the move. If you want to prevent the safe from being stolen, you can bolt it down with the mounting hardware provided.

The backlit keypad is awesome if you want to access the safe in a low-light situation. Add to that the interior LED light that will illuminate the interior when you open the safe.

One of the best benefits with the VAULTEK VT20i is the rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Most safes force you to buy a new set of batteries every time they run out. With this battery, however, you can charge it with the USB charging kit. It will only take you 2.5 hours to fully charge it and then it will last you up to 4 months!
