The safe was a perfect size for the available gap as I only had room for a very narrow unit. This was due to it having to be fitted next to an existing gun cabinet. The supplied fixings were not substantial enough for the securing of the cabinet and more substantial wall bolt fixings purchased.

I have only three suggestions and improvements that would have made the unit perfect and help the ease of use score,

1) The key is too long and can only be removed when the door is locked in the open position in my case the door opens directly against a wall and the key has to come out to open the door to remove the rifle.

2) There is no provision to easily mount an alarm security contact to the door or frame.

3) The internal top lock box opening is too small and with big hands is difficult to pick up ammo, magazines or the bolt through the narrow slot, another 2.5cm height would certainly help.

Finally the installed cabinet easily passed the Police inspection.

Delivery was very quick from placing the order on a Sunday and the unit well packed with no damage when opened. It was very substantial as indicated by the weight and even with two adults a considerable effort required to install.
