Externally a very solid key safe with good storage space.

The instructions for setting the code are poor. You are provided with a piece of cardboard for turning the dials to set the code. This bends and comes apart after a couple of uses and the plastic dials are so weak that they are easily damaged if you try to use anything else to turn them. I purchased this key safe for a holiday cottage and want to regularly change the code to prevent large numbers of people having access to the keys. Considering this is meant to be the highest security key safe on the market internally it is of very poor quality and is not robust enough to change the code on a frequent basis. It is now jammed in the open position and I have bought a cheaper but far more robust safe to replace it. An expensive mistake and I would not recommend the product.

Very sturdy construction. Even the carers said it was the best one they had seen on their rounds in looking after the elderly and infirm.Capacity of key chamber is more than adequate for the two front door keys. A failing with some other makes.

Since most doors and windows today are white uvpc, I did think that a white rubber cover option for the safe would be good. It would blend in better with adjacent fittings

I would 100% NOT recommend this product at all. How it is endorsed by the Police I have no idea.

There are 2 reasons why this product is BAD.

1. You can put the code number in in any order and it will still open. For example if you number is 25387 you can put in 53782 and it would still open.

2. Once it is open, the person who has opened it can easily change the code and not tell anybody. What use it that.

Useless product. I did complain, company did nothing to help me.

Looks like a well made product and is easy to use and doesn't use any batteries. The only snag I've found is that combination numbers can only be used once each. The fixings appear to get a good fix into the wall and where I've put mine it misses the rain but the weather cover should be useful for a fully outdoor site.

This is a very robust key box with the added advantage that it is quite widely used by older people, so visiting carers are familiar with how to operate it. The reset button and open catch are not the easiest to use - would recommend a re-design of these. Also the key hook is set a bit low inside the box making it harder to hang five lever mortice keys, which have to go in at an angle (it's fine for the shorter cylinder lock keys). Strong, well made, and the weather cover is a really helpful feature. This was the best option I could find when researching it online. It also seems very secure, but the security is only as good as your wall fixings, so it is important to ensure a close fit to the wall with strong screws and plugs.

Excellent product, it has made life much easier, should have bought one years ago Having to look after elderly relations prone to misplacing their keys and not hearing the doorbells, or to maintain secure access for carers and paramedics, it has been a real bonus.

Easy to install and operate. I recommend this to others with similar needs.

instructions were easy to follow - just make sure you drill the holes plenty deep enough (doh!). feel sturdy, weighs quite a bit. full body construction so even if someone can get it off the wall, they can’t get to the keys. buttons/mechanism can be a little stiff at times but maybe it’ll ease up over time. more expensive than a number of other keysafes but undoubtedly more secure - hence the Sold Secure rating - but does mean it is bulkier than some others, so make sure you have the space for it. would definitely recommend to anyone looking.

Can the combination number be changed? So, after each user the number is changed so the last user can't get access again.
Clare, London
The code can be changed and is easy to do. Once the code has been changed the previous access code will become obsolete. If you are worried about unauthorised code changes, you can add an Anti-Tamper Code Cover to your order, meaning only you will be able to change the code by removing the code cover with a small screwdriver.

I am interested in the C500 for domestic use. However, I have read that push button systems are limited in that the right buttons but pressed in the any order will allow access..... 12345, 54321 and 45231 etc will all allow access. Is this the case with this key safe? Thanks
Keith
Yes, this is the case. It is called non-sequential PIN entry and means your chosen PIN code can be entered in any order providing the correct digits are used.

This system applies to all mechanical push button locks. The only alternative is a Dial Combo Lock Key Safe. The lock is similar to a bike lock with a PIN that must be entered in sequence.

It says that this lock will hold up to 5 Yale keys - would it hold one Yale and one Chubb key or is it too narrow?
Christine H, Cheltenham
The internal measurement of the C500 is 79 x 50 x 22mm (HxWxD). This would most likely be sufficient but I would advise measuring your key to be absolutely certain.

The reviews mention it comes in black but is advertised in 'sand' - can you choose?

Is fixing okay to reconstituted(flat) stone block rather than brick - will self-tappers supplied, cope?
Andrew Turner, Newport Pagnell
This unit only comes in one colour which is the light grey finish, there is a dark grey plastic cover and this goes over the key safe to provide protection.

The fixing supplied with this unit are okay to affix to stone or brick.

Standard Key Safe Installation

We offer professional installation on our complete range of Key Safes.

Our experienced engineer will complete a brief site inspection and then discuss their findings with you to agree positioning of your key safe.

Your installation will include fixing the key safe to an exterior wall using the fixings included with your key safe. The fixings are designed for use with a solid surface such as brick or concrete.

The position of your key safe will be governed by safe site access, and other obstructions such as submerged pipes or cables within the wall.

The engineer will carry out a final assessment to ensure the key safe is secure before providing a brief demonstration of your key safe and confirming the installation has been completed to your satisfaction.

Non-standard Installation

In some cases, it may be necessary to install additional materials or provide extra resources (manpower) to facilitate an installation in a safe manner.

If additional costs are likely these will be discussed with you prior to installation. Reasons for extra costs might include:

  • Specialised access equipment and permits such as hoists, lifts and cranes.
  • Outside of normal hours working (Mon-Fri, 9am to 5pm).
  • 4x4 Vehicular access requirements to remote rural sites.
  • Road closure including necessary permits.
  • Additional manpower to overcome technical, lifting or safety access issues.

We offer installation throughout the UK mainland, however some more remote and rural post codes in the Highlands are subject to a surcharge to cover additional fuel and traveling time costs.

The following areas will incur a rural travel surcharge:

£55.00 Surcharge Areas

  • PH 1 - 26 (No coverage in other PH postcodes)
  • PA 1 - 19 (No coverage in other PA postcodes)
  • KA 19, 26
  • ML 11, 12

£105.00 Surcharge Areas

  • IV 01-17, 30,31,32 (No coverage in other IV postcodes)
  • AB
  • DD
  • TD
  • DG
  • KW

These additional elements are deemed to fall outside the definition of a 'Standard Installation'. If you feel your installation might be non-standard please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.

If applicable, additional costs are to be paid before installation begins.

Warranty Terms & Conditions

Our installer provides a standard 12 month warranty on all new installations and a 3 month warranty on all materials provided during maintenance visits.

Note: Existing system components and pre-supplied equipment are not included in the installation warranty as these elements are covered by the Manufacturer warranty.

We reserve the right to undertake an ‘Assessment Call’ without prejudice to investigate any complaints relating to materials failure or poor workmanship to assess if the complaint is valid. Please note that remedial service calls generated by elements outside of our sphere of influence or due to different fault conditions will be chargeable to you at an agreed call out charge.

In scenarios where you request a post installation service call and our assessment identifies the fault condition or cause of the fault falls outside of the limitations of the standard installation warranty (Force Majeure, different fault etc) a call out charge will be incurred for the visit.

Assessment calls raised for reasons outside our sphere of influence or responsibility and not covered by the standard installation will incur a call out charge for labour and additional materials.

The following are examples of when a call out charge would be incurred:

  • Accidental Damage
  • Malicious Damage
  • Materials or Manufacturer Failure
  • System Modification
  • Incorrect User Diagnosis
  • Broadband Related
  • App Related
  • User Error
