A surprising amount of internal space despite a small footprint. Very easy to use and the added advantage of being able to bolt the unit to the floor.

Great peace of mind for storage of data back-up hard disks and paperwork, valuables etc. Excellent value for money and well worth purchasing. You can't put a price on the security of precious items and valuable data.

Initially had a bit of a problem getting the safe open but soon realised that that rechargeable batteries we were using were able to power the display but wouldn't activate the door opening. Alkaline batteries solved the problem however.

good size for cost and easy to use. Proved relatively simple to move with a trolley. installing batteries was awkward as it took some effort/grip to untwist the keypad.

This product is value for money. It is easy to use and not at all complicated. The safe itself is solid and the material it is made from will last forever. The interior is large enough to store plenty of documents and things that are worth money. The instructions that come with the safe are easy to follow and it didn't take us long to set it up. We trust the safe completely now and would have no qualms about recommending this product to other people. Perhaps the only criticism is that it came in a box advertising that you have bought a safe, then people think that you have a lot of valuables to put in it

This safe is heavy and well built the instructions are clear and precise, the electric door lock works well and the dual lock function adds to security. The only gripe I would have is the security bolts and plugs supplied did not do the job they were to short so you can wobble the safe and they just worked loose I guess a bit of

12mm re bar will do the trick. And a bit of chemical cement which is available from most good diy stores b and q etc. The handle was a bit stiff to open but a bit of wd40 done the trick.I've not been unfortunate enough to experience how good the safe is against fire but it looks like its up to the job if you want a good home safe then I would recommend this one.

Very heavy and sturdy construction.

Easy to operate.

This model has both a key and a digital code entry giving me twice the confidence in it.

Tons of room inside for all my paperwork - the sliding shelf supplied is also very useful, as is the door pockets for passport and bank pass books etc.

The product came with a bolt down kit with some serious looking screws but I haven't used them yet - I doubt anyone will be running off with the unit - it's very heavy which to me is a good thing.

The fire and waterproof feature gives me great confidence that my stuff is protected.

I didn't know at the time I bought it but there is also a lifetime replacement so should something should happen (like a fire) and the unit needs to be opened by a locksmith it will be replaced. This is good to know.

Ordering was easy and delivery fast.

This was bought to replace a previous version of the safe. It has worked as expected but door hinges look to be the same construction which unfortunately broke on our previous version so slightly marked down on build quality.

Safe is excellent value for money. It is a manageable size to move around and position, even getting upstairs. The instructions are easy, but you need to look out for the grub screw on the keypad for remocal, not easy to pick out from the handbook. Safe is quality build and has a good layout for various storage requirements. The dual key and code gives peace of mind that access is pretty secure. Would recommend this product, value for money, good design, excellent security controls, easily hidden based on size and secured to infrastructure.

After a bit of research I came to the conclusion that thus was the right safe for our family. This safe ticks all the boxes for my family. I run a graphics studio, my wife is an avid photographer so we need reliable fireproof storage for equipment and hard drives etc. This safe is perfect - not too heavy so I could get it positioned in its new home. It's simple to program, has plenty of space for our requirements. I like the coding feature, it's great to have more than one code - for a busy family like ours this feature just makes things that little bit easier.

The inside is a little bit "cheap" and plastic like compared with the solidity of the outside. Also it is a little on the small side since we have found that we know want to store other things including important family documents which are just a little bit larger than A4 when you factor in folders or presentation material which are an integral part of the document. My advice would be to perhaps consider a larger model from the same manufacturer. But these may not be so much criticisms of the product as failure on my part to appreciate how I would use it. Love the fact that it is waterproof noting that we are more likely to suffer water damage through flooding or over exuberant firemen than fire damage!

Interior disappointing - a comment already posted on website.

» Ask Question   

 
Does this safe have wall fixing holes? I do not have concrete floors and would need to secure it to a wall.
Anonymous
This safe does not have pre-drilled holes in the back of the unit to allow wall fixing. This is due to the fire rating the safe has. Any safe with 60 mins fire protection or more is floor fix only. We do offer a range of 30 Minute Fire Protected Safes that would allow a wall fix should you wish to consider these.

What happens when the batteries come to be completely discharged and the door is locked? How do you get the door open?
keith, York
In the event that the batteries run out of power the safe will indeed lock down, however the batteries on this unit are changed on the outside by removing the keypad. Once the batteries have been replaced the safe can be unlocked using the code that you have set previously as normal.

Can the mechanical lock be used instead of the keypad, or do both have to be used to unlock the safe?
AA
This is a Dual Lock safe using both an electronic keypad and a key lock to access the unit. The safe cannot be accessed without the key and electronic combination being used.

If the safe is subjected to a significant fire, would this damage the keypad? If so, how would you open the safe when you need both the keypad and barrel key to unlock. Is there an after fire procedure to unlock?
David, Manchester
The keypad includes some plastic and rubber components that would be damaged in the fire. The safe would need to be broken in to in order to retrieve the contents. Master Lock will then replace your damaged safe for a brand new one under the warranty.

It states this safe is not suitable for tapes or film, and for digital media only. Would it still be suitable for keeping paper safe in a fire?
Afraz
Yes, paper has a much higher temperature tolerance than tapes, film and digital media. This safe would provide the full 120 minutes fire protection for any paper documents.
