    The interior door swings inward and the outer 'door' (3' beyond) is an armored shutter that retracts into the ceiling to create a Sally port. The interior door has a gun port

    Ah but do you, like myself, have a 17th century cannon inside your front gate, defending against the Spanish or other pirates coming up the drive?

    Default One King West - Remote Combination Viewer Display

    One King West has made their Safety Deposit Vault an interactive experience. They replaced the steel panel on the Remove Combination Viewer with plexiglass and added a placard near the RCV titled 'Take a Closer Look'. Unfortunately, the lettering is too small to read but I assume it describes the inner workings of the RCV and may even allow tourists to flip on the viewer light and spin the combo dials.

    Default Cleveland Federal Reserve Vault Door - Bolt-Throwing Door Pins and Jamb Pins

    Here is a single photo showing the Cleveland Federal Reserve's vault door bolt-throwing door pins and jamb pins. The door pins appear to be 'pig nose' security bolts; perhaps the jamb pins are as well.

    I know (and can see ) the push pins you are referring to, but what are 'pig nosed' 'security bolts' that you're saying they appear to be?

    The ends appear to be the same style as pig nose security bolts. These tamper resistant bolts have two indentations that require a special wrench; they are also known as 'two hole' bolts.
