We used to have an old tin box for important papers, but when making our wills we were advised to get the waterproof fire chest.

It’s sturdy and heavy, and looks the part, but we haven’t tried flooding the house or burning it down in order to test it!

The documentation is adequate, and it’s easy to extend the warranty and register for a free replacement after a flood or fire on-line

It’s quite heavy, but the in-built handle is more than capable of lifting it.

The only drawback is the key; it’s not impressive (but it works fine).

The unit is supplied with two keys. As we have two Executors, we’d like to have been able to get an extra key (one each, and one for us) – whilst this is possible, it costs around £40! When I contacted Masterlock about this, they said it’s a security issue. So one Executor has a key, the other has instructions to buy a cheap drill and open it by drilling out the lock!

Apart from the exorbitant fee for extra keys, it’s good value.

J'ai choisi ce modèle de coffre Master Lock car conforme à mon souhait (Protection du contenu en cas d'incendie et d'inondation).

Les premières impressions, après la sortie de l'emballage, sont :

- Le poids (À la réception d'ailleurs),

- La qualité de fabrication et,

- La sécurité qui se dégage

de celui-çi.

Je fais et, poursuis ma confiance en la société Master Lock.

Je formule le souhait de ne pas à avoir à constater la véracité des capacités au feu et à l'étanchéité citées par le costructeur.

À ce stade, je recommande ce produit.

Cordialement à vous,

Does exactly what it says. Very solid build quality, smooth locking mechanism and the perfect size for holding important personal documents. Hopefully I never have a need to test out its fire and water proofing. More importantly the service provided by safe.co.uk was second to none. Although there was a mistake on their website which meant I initially ordered the wrong product, they arranged for a speedy replacement and a discount for the inconvenience. They even went out to the warehouse to double check the measurements on the replacement to make sure it was exactly what I needed!

The safe is a very good size and serves our needs completely. There was a fear it would be too heavy for my wife to pick up and carry about. We are pleased to say this safe is very manageable. We are also pleased it has a key to lock it instead of a combination.

It would be very nice to have had the option to write what is in it and to have a convenient place on the safe to place the note. For example Wills, Power of authority, etc. Our main thrust is to protect against fire and keep it personal.

I am very pleased with this product. The build quality is very good and it feels solid and secure. Storage accepts A4 paperwork which is the size of most documents.

My house has not yet caught fire or flooded so I cannot comment on its fire/water proof qualities.

This is a well built waterproof fire chest. I have to be perfectly honest, I have not tested it with fire and water myself, but it is very, very sturdy and I trust that it will do what it is supposed to do. I did a lot of comparison before buying and these seem both very well respected and also decent value. As other reviewers have mentioned, I do wish the inner dimensions were just a tiny bit larger all around, as if your documents are bound, or put in a plastic pocket for example, they are just a little too big. This is rather annoying as, if you have a number of different types of document and want to keep them separate, you need these dividers.

Overall fairly satisfied with product in terms of capacity and price. Downside is that, every time the safe is opened, the cement mix used as a filler flakes out from the seals into the actual safe and over the floor and requires vacuuming up after each use. You'd have hoped the manufacturer would have sorted that design flaw before producing them.

Product as described and arrived promptly. I find it quite difficult to unlock but my partner manages it fine. All our important documents fit inside and our hard drive. Product looks good and is small enough to fit in a cupboard. Cannot confirm if its firw and water proof as we haven't had a fire or a flood.

The Masterlock waterproof fire chest is appropriate for our needs. It takes 3 A4 documents of several pages without bending them. The build appears strong and sturdy and hopefully it works but thankfully not tested re fire or water. It is fairly heavy but able to be moved quite easily from one area to another within the house..it comes with a set of keys that are easy to use. For in house general security of documents it is ideal and good value for money. Theonline site was good and delivery was efficient and on time, overall a good product for the price.

It was bought for an elderly gentleman and his medication to be kept safe so that he could not find it and throw them away. It has worked and he is unable to get into the chest. He has a history of breaking containers for his mediaction.

I am looking for a Waterproof Fire Chest that is not easily "picked" but that can actually withstand burglars as well. I like this one but is it secure?
Anonymous
Fire Chests are designed to protect documents and sometimes digital media from fire and water damage. Although they have a lock, they are not deemed particularly secure. Additionally a potential thief could easily carry a fire chest away.

Ideally you should consider one of our Waterproof Safes. These include fire and water protection, a much more secure lock and include the option to be bolted to the floor.

Would drilling holes in the base so that it can be bolted down with a heat resistant sealing washer under the head of each bolt be acceptable? Would this affect the water-proofing and fire-proofing capabilities of this safe?
And would the product warranty be voided?
John Burt, Bridge of Weir
Drilling holes in the unit would compromise the fire and water protection and would also invalidate the warranty.

How do I open my safe, when I turn the key it won't unlock?
Jeff, York
Downward pressure needs to be applied to the top of the safe whilst turning the key to release the latch mechanism.
