On the top of a Fort Knox safe there is a perfectly round hole with a hex screw located on the outside top of the safe.  What is that used for?  Is it part of the manufacturing building process?

Is it for a power line to be run through? I don't have your safe but my Liberty has a plug on the back for  a power outlet to be installed.

It's for hoisting it around the production floor

I spoke with a dealer about it once, he claims it is what they use during manufacturing to move the safe around with, they screw in a piece on top and can lift it anywhere.

It's how the souls of your guns escape to the heavens after being smelted inside the safe during a fire.

FT Knox mentions its for lifting the safe and somewhere in their paperwork when I bought my first Ft Knox safe. It also mentions the proper size eye bolt to use for this and states it will take the full weight of the safe with just the one bolt.
