The product itself. Nice solid unit. Compact, easy to install, only took 2minutes!

External dimensions: 110x224x46mm (HxWxD).

There are 10 small hooks on the back plate. It can accommodate more than 10 keys!!

there is a 20 hook version with the same dimensions. The additional 10 hooks are on the inside of the door plate.

I managed to fit allot of keys into the unit, I wish in one way I purchased the 20hook/key version. This is because the hooks are spaced very close to each other. For this reason I gave it 4/5stars

What comes in the box?

Helix key cabinet with cylinder lock

2 x keys

10 coloured key fobs

Numbered sticker to put over the hooks

Helix Sticker table (to write what keys correspond with the number)

2 x screws

2 x wall plugs (approx. 30mm x 6mm)

Installation

It’s a doddle; it took a couple mins to install. I did however use a 5.5mm drill bit instead of 6mm as I think the fit is better. Find a suitable location to install the cabinet, mine is under the stairs. Ensure there’s enough room for the unit to open and close properly. Using a spirit level ensure the unit is flat. using a pencil, mark two corresponding holes with the unit. Drill through those holes, Insert the wall plugs. Place unit on wall and tighten the screws using a screwdriver.

What tools are required?

Drill

5.5mm or 6mm drill bit

Philips screw bit or screw driver

Pencil for marking hole

Spirit level

How much protection does it offer?

it's a cabinet but it can keep your keys safe from losing them.

In my view it doesn't and won't offer protection against a career criminal. It could easily be ripped off the wall and with the right tools opened quickly.

For me its not a problem, i just need something to store my roof box keys, roof bars etc but i am a tiny bit worried about the keys to the vault i have built in my underground bunker housing gold bullion and jewels. ;-)
