    Clean out bottom bolt holes. They get a lot of debris in there dont they !

    Oh and if the safe has been moved has the anchor bolt been refitted. Some are not and this maybe an insurance requirement

    Lubricate hinges.

    Check locks for signs of tampering.

    Check that where dual control (two locks) is employed, that neither key fits the other lock.

    Check alignment of the door and adjust if necessary.
    Inspect boltwork and lubricate if necessary.
    Check action of all keys, i.e. get your hands on duplicates and make sure they all work.

    One thing we had on our sheet was to check the escutcheon! There actually is/was a British Standard for escutcheons which stated that they should close automatically.

    Does anybody have any wisdom to contribute?
