Need a gun safe secured with dynabolts


Kensington VIC, Australia

22nd May 2023

We need a handyman to install a Sandleford 1450 x 250 x 250mm 3 Gun Safe (see link for reference). The bottom of the gun safe needs to be affixed (we presume dyna bolted, as that is what is supplied with the Safe) to a concrete floor. The rear of the safe needs to be affixed (though we are not sure if this involves dynabolting, or some other type of fixture) to a supporting beam, like a wooden post. This is a common Safe. Looking on the Bunnings website, previous purchasers of the Gun Safe have stated (and complained?) that the bolts supplied with the safe do not fit through the pre-fabricated holes. As such, it may be necessary to either drill out the pre-fabricated holes to install it securely or to obtain other fixtures to make the thing secure. Gun safe: https://www.bunnings.com.au/sandleford-1450-x-250-x-250mm-3-gun-safe_p4211460 - Due date: Needs to be done on Tuesday, 23 May 2023
