Summary

Long time ago I owned a Safe Box made of wood pieces. I redesigned it to a printable version.

Instructions

Additional material required:
1x tube or bolt dia 4 mm x 13 mm
1x bolt dia 5 mm x 7mm
1x hex screw M3 x 16 mm

  1. Print 1x SafeBoxB, 1x SafeBoxM, 1x SafeBoxT, 1x SafeBoxCover and 4x SquareBolts.
  2. Press 2 SquareBolts into the 4mm holes of the SafeBoxB (using a small hammer).
  3. Press the small SafeBoxM into the SafeBoxB (hole Inside).
  4. Press 2 SquareBolts into the 4mm holes of the large SafeBoxM.
  5. Press the small SafeBoxT into the SafeBoxM.
  6. Take the tube or bolt dia 4mm x 13mm and press it into the lateral hole of the large SafeBoxM.
  7. Put the large SafeBoxM over the SafeBoxB.
  8. Put the bolt dia 5mm x 7mm into the SafeBoxM hole, it should move easlily up and down through the SafeBoxM and the SafeBoxB.
  9. Put the SafeBoxT over the SafeBoxM.
  10. Tighten the M3 screw.
  11. Insert the SafeBoxCover lateraly into the the SafeBoxT.

How to open the SafeBox? That's secret :-)

I just made one of these. Really like it!
I used an M3 screw not an M4 to make the pin that goes through the slot. Also got confused about terminology, the 5 x 7mm bolt I took to be a bolt, as in 'nut and bolt'. When I used a dowel (well length of silver steel actually) it worked much better!
Thanks for the design

Put the bolt dia 5mm x 7mm into the SafeBoxM hole, it should move easlily up and down through the SafeBoxM and the SafeBoxB.

It should move freely up and down, as in it can move completely out one and into the other, or should it always remain in both pieces?

Also, can this just be printed, as it would be much easier than trying to hunt down something 5mm x 7mm for me?

"It should move freely up and down, as in it can move completely out one and into the other, or should it always remain in both pieces?"

It depends on "lock" or "unlock"

"Also, can this just be printed ..." yes, you can print it.

thx for the design. I really like it.

Where are you folks getting the hardware for this? I have home depot, lowes and even fastenal in my area and nobody seems to carry these exact metric dimensions..

Hi AJMeta87

What similar dimensions are available in your area? I had to cut the bold dia 5 mm to the length of 7 mm and the bold/tube dia 4 mm to the length of 13 mm. The hex screw M3 x 16 mm should be available or you can cut one to the length of 16 mm.

I will soon try to design a new version without any hardware.

I got some hardware with 1mm off dimensions than what you have listed. Just for clarification, Is the bolt supposed to just lie loosley in the M and B box? (for turning upside down perhaps?)

Correct, probably a bolt of dia 4 mm will also do the job.

wow.PLEASE SHOW ME HOW TO OPEN IT
