Great safe with plenty of space.You can program two codes and it comes with two keys. Looks and feels strong, not easy to open, like some people on you tube show how to crack open safe. Reset button on the inside has a cover,so you can not just put coat hanger through the back hole and press reset button for the code. I personally really like this safe and would buy it again. I took this safe apart and just for curiosity, the spring that hold locking mechanics is strong and it hold locking mechanism well. You can not open/hack into it just by hitting hard from the top like some youtube videos show for these kind of safes. Buy it and you will like it....

I received this today. I was fairly certain it was small based on Amazons description and reviewers comments. The first thing I did was to try to get a good idea of what the inside dimensions might actually be. Only due to the mechanism on the inside of the door. This does stick out a bit. As best I could tell, the dimensions (when door is closed) are 12"w x 5"d x 7"h. Granted, not much space, but then again it's not a big safe either. The door opening (a swag) appeared to be approx. 5.375" x 7.75" so items will have to be angled in if it's longer than the opening size. As in Amazons description, mounting is an option. Depending on your actions, the hardware supplied might need to be augmented. The two keys with this safe had 4 numbers inscribed on the round shaft. The last 3 of these were inscribed on the hole the key fits into. I do not know if this is standard information on all keys or if the locks are individually coded. I have plans on another purchase of this safe in the near future and can update this review at that time. It's possible another reviewer knows and can enlighten me in regards to this. Setting the codes was easy for the most part. The Reset button has a plastic cap on it to avoid pushing it by accident after the codes have been set. Can tell you, when keying in the combination, it will be on the noticeable side. I can not make a statement on battery life yet. I reckon it will depend on the keypad usage. All in all, the safe seems to well built and solid. I would definitely recommend this item.
I purchased this safe after buying a $17 safe off of Amazon and being completely dissatisfied, it was a piece of crap. I guess that's what you get for $17 so I decided to step it up a little and this gets the job done for a small at home safe.
If someone really wanted to get in it I'm sure they could and, but it deters people from messing with your stuff, it's pretty sturdy and decently heavy as well.
1-YEAR UPDATE: 10 days from the year, safe is still in good standing. One thing I would recommend though,
**DON'T USE THEIR BATTERIES, USE HIGH QUALITY BATTERIES THAT WILL LAST A LONG TIME.**
The batteries they gave me died in the first few months, and, while initially I had no issue with the keypad and my PIN, after I had to change the batteries, my PIN didn't work. I also had issues setting a new PIN.. so I had to reluctantly use the factory PIN.
Then, for some reason my old PIN started working again.
Hopefully this doesn't happen again, or to you, but do yourself a favor and use high quality batteries the first time around.
I've had it for 2 weeks or so and the setup was super easy, the keypad works great I put the keys somewhere where they can be found and have just been using that to get in, and I have to use it everyday as I keep medication in there.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars was the handle does seem a little flimsy, maybe not flimsy but just a bit cheaply-made I guess is more of what I'm getting at. I don't feel like it's going to break off, but just when you turn it, it doesn't feel as premium as it should when the rest of the safe is built of better material.
Good products, don't spend less than 40 bucks on a safe, if you really want that piece of mind at least step it up to that, those cheap safes for $15 or $20 are exactly that, don't waste your time I sent mine back 10 minutes after I got it.
This isn't meant to safeguard your children's inheritance & protect your every valuable, but it serves the purpose for basic protection of a few small items. It gives me peace of mind by safe keeping things like medication, so it's not lost or misplaced & jewelry, cd's & small electronic items that might walk away in a group of teens! It's also an excellent means of concealing gift cards & other small birthday, mother's day, father's day or Christmas day presents from curious family members! It opens smoothly. The alarm does go off if the wrong combination is entered 3 times. There's an ample amount of space and properly hidden & secured, it could adequately protect any number of items. It's not going to stop any determined thief but it could play a fine role as a diversionary safe for your primary security needs.
I ordered two of these and got them the next day. I was very excited because due to some personal issues in the home medications and such must be locked away. As I putting the batteries in to the back of the digital pad, the little plastic thing breaks and makes it impossible to use batteries and therefore I cannot use the digital pad at all. On the second one the pad didn't work even with the batteries in. I was perplexed that it broke the minute I touched it. It is very cheap thin plastic on the inside of the door. It's essentially a paperweight or garbage at this point. I decided to keep them and use the key feature because I keep them high up Out Of Reach. If you truly need to keep something safe or dry or Fireproof this is absolutely a terrible purchase. Cannot believe how much I paid for them. BUYER BEWARE!!!
