A safe (also called strongbox, coffer or kist) is a secure lockable box used for securing valuable objects against theft or damage. A safe is usually a hollow cuboid or cylinder, with one face removable or hinged to form a door. The body and door may be cast from metal (such as steel) or formed out of plastic through blow molding. A less secure version (only suitable for petty cash) is usually called a cash-box.

Famous quotes containing the word safe:
“Fences, unlike punishments, clearly mark out the perimeters of any specified territory.

“This day is called the Feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day and comes safe home
Will stand a-tiptoe when this day is namd
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours
And say, Tomorrow is Saint Crispian.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
