That's certainly a situation in which "open carry" carried the day.

I'd suggest contacting the safe manufacturer. Some of them will replace a safe that was unsuccessfully attacked for free if they can use pictures and the story in their marketing materials.

If you can arrange that, it would sharply cut your insurer's payout as well and hopefully reduce any premium increase.
Very good idea - and we started down that path today.

I'd already contacted my safe retailer to figure out some options, but I reached out to the manufacturer today based on your suggestion. They were slow to respond, but I expect I'll hear from the supervisor there tomorrow.
I hope it works out for you.

If you can't get a replacement free, I suggest negotiating for a substantial discount. Your story should be a marketing windfall for them.
