Product Description

An interesting antique ‘Sentinel’ Alarmed Strong Box, which was produced around 1910 in the USA.

It is steel and rectangular in shape, with a chromed finish on the outside and painted orange-red in the inside. The box opens by means of a double-edged security key. On the inside is a small tray and beneath that is a storage compartment. The inner base has 2 nuts that undo to reveal the electrics and dry cell battery compartment for the alarm system. The alarm switch is a spring mounted bolt that fits through a hole in the floor, and when resting on a flat surface would stop the electrical contact. As soon as you try and lift it off, the alarm would sound. There is a small lever on the inside that allows the user to move the box without triggering the alarm. The brand name of the box was the SENTINEL and it was manufactured by the Steel Products Company, Inc., Kansas City, Missouri.

The Strong box is in good condition, but alas, the electrics are not working. The chrome finish on the outside shows wear from age, but is nearly all intact.
