This is an excellent safe for keeping small-ish valuables. I thought the "drawer" function would be a pain but actually, to be fair, it doesn't take up any more space than a swinging hinge door would and it also means you have much easier access to the contents. The drawer also has a light when opened which makes rooting inside much easier. The safe has a digital combination lock with excellently responsive, large buttons (unlike the Yale safes) and it also has a backup key (I don't like the external power source versions as that is fine for dead batteries, but if the circuit board dies you are still looking to break open the safe). The safe also has a felt lining for the bottom of the drawer which is useful if you are planning on putting metallic valuables which are prone to scratching in there (watches, jewellery etc.). I only have this Securikey safe model but if this is a fair representation of the brand, it is INFINITELY better quality than Yale safes which seem to be the cheapest, poorest quality safes you can be unfortunate enough to buy, with a Yale sticker on them. I previously had three Yale safes which came either broken or in such a poor state (i.e. you can guarantee the paint will be coming off or the corners are dented and two of them didn't even open the door as the mechanism was screwed in too tight!!?) before getting this safe and I can honestly say, having bought this Securikey safe, I will be highly unlikely to buy a Yale safe ever again.

Overall, you get what you pay for, this is a reasonably cheap, light-weight safe for storing valuables to prevent "opportunistic" thefts; it is not fire/water proof or of a particularly "tough" build but if your home insurance demands that certain things have to go into a safe, it is an ideal solution for putting in a cupboard etc. without worrying that it will fall through the cupboard/floor as most of the better, fire-proof safes will be 3 or more times the weight of this model.

This is a perfect safe for on a shelf as it has a draw so placing item in the safe is very easy. So this is very good for everyday item you use a lot.

I searched for this type of safe after having one in USA.

My one critism is it is not sitable for a laptop there is a larger version suitable for a laptop but not stocked. That said perfect for ipads smaller notebooks and the like. Using the lock combination could not be easier. A+++
