Most Liberty safes use a key-locking dial to provide extra security beyond the combination lock.

Liberty safes keep a user's belongings out of the hands of thieves and protect the contents from fire damage with a layer of insulation. The basic Centurion model shields a user's property from a fire for up to 30 minutes, while the strongest Presidential and National models provide protection for up to two and a half hours. Most Liberty safes come with two ways to open them: a combination lock and a key-lock dial. This key lock is a secondary measure of security that is used to keep the safe's dial from turning.
