Any Locking UV Protected Display Options For High End Books?19344

Collector 00slim private msg quote post Address this user
It’s a shame to have my ultimate grail sit in a box. But I’d course, UV protection is a huge concern. And while I shouldn’t have to worry about being ripped off in my own home, I’d like to have it locked up.

Have you guys seen any options for this circumstance?

I have a frame with UV protection that holds a slab. It is from Crafticomics. I generally like their frames for displaying raw books (UV protected options there too) but find the slabbed version too bulky. Also, as noted above, UV treated windows as well, for an added layer of protection.

What I don’t follow is your second point on locking/security. What do you envision there?

I assumed he meant something like the box around the Mona Lisa.

I think he means something secure.
Like they use for the Declaration of Independence.

Could probably hack it to display a different book each day.

Occasionally, friends of ours with kids come for a visit. They’re supervised most of the time. But I’d like the added peace of mind.

Something like this, but deeper?

Since it's more to keep kids out than thieves, I'd consider something like this from Amazon. The shelves are removable, but you could use one to set the slab on.

Edit - the inside is one inch deep.

Okay, if we are talking a way to secure against opportunistic (still criminal) behavior, something simple makes sense. But if locking a grail is the intent, a displayed piece is going to be easy to rip off the wall, for most types of locked cases. Also, the more secure, the more it likely detracts from presentation.

My preference would instead be lighter security on the item but more focus on process (when out of house, house security and cameras etc). Maybe a small sticker saying “smile you’re on camera” right below the piece would be deterrent enough.

As long as your house is reasonably secure, the best thing to do to protect a comic display room from theft or damage (visiting kids can do both but the latter is more likely), than just putting a lock on the door of the comic room makes the most sense.

We have cameras on the outside of the house and an alarm system in place. And my collection is insured.

The UV protection is certainly the main thing keeping me from just putting my AF 15 on a shelf.

I’m not really expecting anyone to grab it and walk out with it. This is more like, “hey kids, look, don’t touch. Oh, but even if you wanted to, you can’t”. 😌
