Just how safe is a safe?

I caught this story about a young boy who got locked in a safe by his playmates in Turkey. 

The firemen had quite a fight to get him out of there:

Nice to know a safe is still safe … or is this a training video for how to break into one next time?

Of course most banks these days don't need safes, as everything is electronic except for the odd bank note here and there which, of course is on the decline (only 70% of all payments in most countries these days … but only 3.5% in Sweden!).

So it got me to thinking that, as banks have less need for such things and are really cash-strapped, they could make a quick buck or three out of selling these old vaults to you and I.

After all, this video illustrates that over Christmas it would be brilliant the perfect present for any mum and dad, for locking the little tinkers away when they get rather annoying. 

Just make sure you've got the key handy.
