This is an excellent safe!

Finding a safe designed for a laptop is a problem in its self I was concerned that my laptop which is a 17.3" Vaio would not fit (door opening, not the internal space) however, placing it in at an angle worked perfectly.

It is very easy to use and the fixing bolts supplied and used to fix the safe to a concrete floor are substantial but could perhaps be a little longer.

The LED light is perfect as the safe is installed in a rather dark area. There is lots of space even after the laptop is stored inside too!

The service from The Safe Shop is excellent and delivery was swift and on time and I would not hesitate to recommend them or this excellent safe.

Nice strong safe. Hard to install safety upstarts because most walls are breeze block and weak. So I put my one in the empty airing cupboard (small walled place, so hard to get at) and connect by the back and the bottom.

Extra Items required (Ebay) - two 5*50mm flat iron bars, 8*6mm bolts with security bolts to join the, angle brackets 4* 80mm/80mm 4mm, 4*8mm (about 25mm long) bolts with plastic inserts tops, to connect inside the safe to the iron bar(and you can remove if the safe breaks) - 8*5/80mm (about 15mm long)screws to fix the angle brackets to the wall. 1* 8mm and 6mm Cobalt drill bit (drill very slow and press hard with a drop of oil, else it will go blunt). A lot of planning to get the hols in the correct spot :-) and about 8 hours if you have never done anything like this before, like me.

3mm body and 8mm door. Seems more like 2mm / 6mm. But seems strong and the way I have it fixed in, it would take alot to open or remove.

Nice and secure, easy to hide if you've got the space. A nice piece of kit. Didn't like the bolts, but hey for a couple of quid you can pick some decent ones from Wicks.

This product could do with a shelf so that you can put laptops on one level and all the other important stuff on another level.

This is a very solidly-built and stylish product which is big enough to hold my 17' laptop whilst still having room for many other small valuables. It's the perfect size for fitting inside a wardrobe or cupboard and is light in weight and simple to install. The keypad is easy to set up and security seems to be very good. It's just perfect for my needs!

Very easy to use. Internal light is a nice feature. It switches off on a timer if the door remains open to save battery life. The door opens on a spring which is good if you want this feature; not if you don't. I would buy this again because it feels really solid, is stylish and good value for money IMO.

The fixing bolts are enormous and only just fit through the wholes at the back / bottom (maybe they're supposed to be really tight?). This can slow down the install though.

Before buying this product I did some research. For the specification and price it was the product I chose, and decided to buy from Safe because they had the most competitive price.

The product was delivered next day and packaged well. The instructions were clear and all the fittings I needed were included in the box.

I drilled four holes in the solid brick wall to ensure I had a good anchor point for the safe. The safe itself is very sturdy and solidly built.

Once installed I ran through the set instructions and had programmed it within minutes to my desired code.

Overall I'm pleased with my purchase and hassle free shopping experience with Safe.

This is a very good product for ensuring that your laptops are secure.It is easy to install.

After installing the safe (securing it to a wall) we found that the display was defective. there were two 7's and no number 3!!! By that time it was too late and we are left with a strange display. The lesson that we learnt was to check the display BEFORE you install it.

Great safe and perfect for my requirements. Very easy to use + back up key just in case battery runs out.

I also bought a fireproof pouch for documents. Plenty of space for Dslr camera and 15' laptop. Very happy with my purchase, highly recommended.

An excellent product that I have had for three months now. It was easy to fix to an outside wall with the fixing kit provided. I am sure that somebody determined enough could remove it, but it would take time. We have an alarm and do not need to store anything that would make the effort worthwhile.

It is so quick and easy to open and shut using the key code that we store a number of things in it that we did not originally intend to. Including car keys. My car has keyless entry. As well as the spare key, I store the main key when I am not using it. Being in what is in effect a Faraday cage should prevent my car being stolen using the latest wheeze of a repeater. This has the other advantage that I always know where they are.

The one problem that we had was the spare master key. We have that being held anonymously for us over 100 miles from where we live.

I think this is a good product and I bought at a great price. I found the safe easy to install and easy to set up the user and master codes, although the instructions could be clearer. As you would expect from Yale, it appears to be well constructed and solid. There is more than enough capacity for all my needs, including my laptop and documents, and room for valuables from the rest of the family. It is nicely lined and comes with a very useful interior light. It has the added bonus of being a certified safe and the override key gives further peace of mind.

This product fulfils the brief very well, its made to a very high standard of quality with strong materials, I like that you have the option to use either the key or code choice to operate, neat fob cover for key entry interior carpet lining is practical for any delicate items to store , plenty storage with both hight and width.

Laptop storage works well and still plenty of room for other items of storage.

Yale is a reputable name and this has been proven with this item, it is a brand I would look for should I need to make any further purchases.

its totally solid, but the keypad was not properly fixed to the safe. Because I didn't think it was a security risk, and I needed to use it urgently, I didn't send it back, but I would have done if I'd have had more time.

I was a bit apprehensive about buying a safe and having it fitted because obviously I had never made a purchase like this before and had no experience with websites of this type. But the website was easy to navigate and the information was clear and easy to understand. I rang the helpline to get further information and found the agent very helpful with concise information in answer to my queries. the fitting also went like a dream.The fitter arrived on time and in a little over forty five minutes had installed the safe with no mess and no fuss. He answered all my questions and I was able to set up and operate the safe in a couple of minutes. Overall I was pleased with how smoothly the whole process went from purchasing the safe to having it fitted and I was also pleased with the price, particularly the cost of fitting which I thought was extremely reasonable. If only plumbers rates were that reasonable! I rate the whole experience as five star.

I bought this safe as I had been recommended to have an electronic safe to store the keys for my gun safe so that opportunist burglers would not be aqbloe to find the gun safe keys and steal the shotgun. Then I thought storing two laptops would be a good idea when we are an holiday as well as all the othe small valuables. This is well made and works really smoothly. The wall fixing is easy, but you have to support it when doing the job. I built a wine rack underneath, practical and uses the space!

» Ask Question   

What happens if the batteries run out of power. Would that mean that the pin number you have used would not work and you would not be able to gain access?
Bob, London
If the batteries run flat the PIN number is retained in the memory but the keypad will not work. You should open the safe using the override key so that you can insert new batteries on the inside of the safe door. Once the batteries are fitted you can use the safe with the PIN you originally set up.

I have purchased a Yale Certified Safe from you, can you advise if it is OK to bolt freestanding on a wall using bolts supplied, or does it need to be supported?
If installing to a wall we would recommend that the safe be supported by a shelf or plinth to distribute the weight of the unit. Should the weight be focused entirely on the fixing bolts they may eventually fail and cause damage to the wall itself.

The cash and valuables rating: are these still applicable if the safe is installed by myself? Presumably these ratings are what my home insurance provider will uphold for that particular safe?
The security ratings on this safe would still be applicable if you were to install this yourself, providing the safe is installed as per the manufacturer instructions. The cash and valuables rating is an indication of what an insurance company would cover in the event the safe was broken into or stolen.

Before I buy this product I'm wondering if I can fit it inside my bedroom cabinet? I'd fix it to the base of the cabinet which is of wood construction and sits on floorboards. There is no void between the cabinet and the floor boards. Will the bolts suffice? Also will they lock in place? I could also fix on to the back wall at the same time but I believe the back is of plaster board than a void before it goes into breeze block. Is this possible?
Ideally the Yale certified range needs to be installed into either solid concrete/brick or wooden support joists to allow the 4x 70mm fixing bolts to be fully secured. I would not advise bolting the unit into plaster or breeze block as this could cause damage to the walls.

Can this item or any item in the series be fixed inside a closet, fixed to the floor of the closet which is wood? I think this provides extra security and no need to cut carpet etc. Can you also please tell me the length of the bolts needed.
Avis, London
The Yale certified range are designed to be installed ideally into a solid concrete floor or brick wall. Fixing to wood is generally not recommended, especially if the wood is relatively thin. However, if you have no other alternative it is certainly better than no fixing fixing at all. If you fix to the floor of the closet I would advise trying to secure through the closet and into the floor joist. The length of the bolts supplied are 60mm, but they are not designed for timber so would need to be replaced with heavy duty timber screws.

I would like to wall fix my safe and I would like to understand if your shop can do it for me? If not, who should I ask?
matteo, london
This safe does not have the option for a delivery and install service. The safe is supplied with the fixings and there are pre-drilled holes in the base and back of the unit so you could install this yourself, alternatively an engineer or local tradesman should be able to carry out the installation for you. We do have safes of this level that do offer an installation service such as the Chubbsafes Water 30E should you wish to consider this.
