Lock It Up Safe Company opens in Edmond

With a bright yellow 10-foot-tall safe on display, it's hard to miss Lock It Up Safe Company, a newly opened business in Edmond.

With a display of a bright yellow safe more than 10 feet tall by the front door, it’s hard to miss one of the newest businesses to open in Edmond. Lock It Up Safe Company opened in May and offers safes from seven of the nation’s leading brands. While the Big Yellow Safe is not for sale, the new company’s owners welcome anyone to take a picture with it when visiting the store.

“We have the largest selection of safe brands offered in central Oklahoma, including American Rebel, Dakota, Black Diamond, Badlands, Champion, Superior and Safeguard,” President and owner Stephen Hall said. “We’re a full-service, family-owned company that will help with selection, installation, and even moving. We’re so humbled to be supported by these great brands.”

Hall has years of experience growing up behind the scenes at H & H Shooting Sports in Oklahoma City, and for years he has also run Hall-N-Hall Consulting to help optimize and increase profitability in shooting sports stores across the country. 

Co-founders Sam Hixon and Kent Swenson also bring years of experience in the retail safe business. 

“The response we’ve seen from customers has been fantastic,” Hixon said. 
The Lock It Up Safe Company’s mission is to provide peace of mind for the material items customers treasure most. The owners believe a safe should be treated like an appliance, and there should be one in every home. The store is located at 716 W. 15th Street. Learn more at
