When installing a Knox Box, consider the following:
- Knox Boxes shall be mounted as near as possible to the primary entry door and shall not be visually obstructed. This normally will be the main entrance door to the business.
- The box should not be located further than six feet laterally from the door.
- The Knox Box should be installed no higher than five feet or no lower than two feet above the ground or walk area.
- The Knox Box for a gate shall be located on the gate or on a fence or wall within six feet of the gate.
