It meets basic security requirements of having solid construction, easy-to-use keypad operation and positive locking. Mine's mounted in a dark place, which makes the keypad a bit hard to see, but the beeps that accompany pressing the keypad are reassuring.

The lock mechanism intrudes a little into the inside space. It's only just big enough for A4-size documents, but will take a lot.

The installation leaflet was not particularly helpful as it just showed a few tiny drawings. and the installation was not that easy. You need a good quality drill to obtain the depth required for the rawlplugs and bolts. Also the bolts were an unusual design with a screw head inside the hexagonal bolt head. This meant that while you could start with a few turns of a screwdriver you had to finish with a ring spanner. The enclosed space made this quite time consuming. A socket head would be an eas...

Value for money budget safe has excellent storage capacity and looks the part. The walls of the safe are a little flimsy or tinny but overall the product description matches the product I received. The digital lock control key pad panel is simple and easy to use and the back up safe key system is good for peace of mind if the batteries fail on the digital panel. The safe itself is incredibly easy to install and setting key pad access codes up are also very easy. All in all a good safe for the mo...

The fact that it has 2 keys.The last safe only had 1 key which got lost and potentially meant if the batteries went it would not open. You need to put in slightly longer wall plugs.

I would like to install a home safe into a cupboard but the sizes only allow me to rotate the safe 90deg so it would stand on its end - would this hinder any performance of the safe or create any access issues with the door?
Paul, Birmingham
The safe is designed to be used whilst positioned on its base with the door opening out. Though the unit may function perfectly well in a different position it will not have been tested for use in this manner so future issues accessing the safe cannot be entirely ruled out.

When setting the lock code for the first time do you need to press the key sign first? The pictorial instructions don't make it clear other than enter a code enter. The safe I purchased is product code YL-YSV/250/D81.
Ray Mitchell, Taunton
To set your own code you will first press the Programme button on the inside of the safe, the numbers you wish to set and then the ENTER key to Confirm/Set the code (Audible melody). Once a code is set you will enter your numbers followed by the KEY symbol button to unlock. You can view the full user guide here.

Hi, I wanted to buy the Yale Value Safe Home Ref: YL-YSV/250/DB1 but wanted to double check that it was ok to keep outside? It will be under cover and sheltered however may be exposed to some weather?
Anonymous, St Andrews
We would advise against storing this safe outside, even under shelter because of the electronics. The only products we would advise for outdoor use are Outdoor Key Safes.

Is this safe fire proof to any degree? Thank you
Anonymous
This safe is aimed for the storage of small amounts of cash and valuables only, it does not offer any fire protection. We do offer a range of Fire Safes on the website should you wish to consider this option.
