Small cabinet safes give you the perfect means of securing valuable items in a small footprint. Think about how you plan to use the safe to find the right model for your needs. Some cabinet safes have interior shelves that work well for organizing items. But the shelves limit the size of the items you can place inside. A cabinet safe with shelves is a good option for storing papers and documents. Larger items may require a cabinet safe without built-in shelves. Some cabinet safes have both fire and water protection, but some only have one. If you need this protection, look closely at each unit to understand its protection ratings. Cabinet safes use a variety of locking mechanisms, including keys, keypads, combination dials, and biometrics. Some of these safes can be bolted to a wall, but others are free-standing.
