While it took some struggle to assemble, the final product does not appear too secure, in this writer's opinion. The top of the cabinet can easily be pried off by hand. We are seriously considering welding it if the metal will hold up to the procedure. It looks nice but if someone really wanted to get into it and steal or use the guns stored there it would not take much effort. If all you want it to do is keep small children away this gun cabinet is fine; but theft prevention is not among its qualities.
