Question on dehumidifier install on a gun safe.

Hello all, I just recently took delivery of a Liberty Colonial, and I'm trying to install a golden rod into it. I've found the plastic plug on the back of the safe, but when I stick my finger in there, I encounter fireboard. Am I correct in that I need to drill a hole into this, to get the wire through there? Should I be feeding the line anywhere inbetween the fire board and steel? Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't use a drill, as it will grab that interior fabric and tear up the interior of your safe.

We take a phillips screwdriver from the back and work it through the fireboard until it's pushing the fabric. Then we go around to the front, and push it through from the inside. This makes a nice clean hole without making a mess of the fabric.

ok, I didn't know the fireboard was that soft. Either way, I'm on the right track. Thanks a lot!

Just wanted to reply back that the screwdriver tip worked, and I've now got a working golden rod in my safe. Thanks!
