    I have no experience with that particular safe.

    I do have 2 safes in the basement. One sits directly on the concrete floor and the other I have sitting on a couple of 2x4's. I can't remember why I put the 2nd one up on the 2x4's.

    Not sure why you would want to put the safe up on the mudflap, but it shouldn't hurt anything if you do. As for the best way to bolt them down. There are several different types of concrete anchors. Pick which ever one you like. I bought some stainless steel expanding anchors at Home Depot.

    I haven't had any issues with my safe that is in direct contact with the cement. But I have a very dry basement.

    I can't see where the mudflap would hurt anything.

    Also I was just thinking, I used the stainless steel anchors on the safes. But when I put my shed in I used some Tapcon anchor screws. Shed hasn't blow away yet and they are much easier to use then the anchors.

    I think that you putting it on mudflaps would be good . I think it would reduce the cold and ability for the cold to come thorugh the floor and make the safe "sweat" :cool:
