To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
El producto es bastante estable y util para guardar cosas pequenas como dinero, pasaportes o documentos. Cabe una caja chica, pero no mucho más. El sistema de cierre electrico necesita dos baterías y funciona sin problemas. Ofrece la posibilidad de escoger un codigo de 4 o aun más caracteres. Una caja fuerte especialmente con medidas chicas deberia ser instalada a un mueble o un muro. Hay cuatro agujeros para instalar la caja fuerte de manera fija. Los tornillos que vienen con el paquete son para muros fuertes, pero no sirven para muebles. Se recomienda comprar tornillos y tuercas que solo permiten abrirse desde adentro.
I needed a secure place to keep Confidential documents. I looked at locking mini filing cabinet which were to bulky. This is small and secure. Not super sturdy, definitely not fire or water proof. But works for my needs.
Have been using safe for several months now with no issues whatsoever. I used the included screws to attach it to wall studs in order to secure it. I have not had to change batteries yet and it comes with backup key. Changing the code is quite easy and there is plenty of space for your valuables.
It serves my purpose well. The size matches my needs. However SentrySafe publishes the weight as 19 lbs for an X055 and my X055 only weights13.8 lbs. I still like it. You can draw your own conclusions.
Good little safe for home use. Good privacy measure for the entire family. Secure small amounts of cash, costume jewelry, secret candy stash, maybe a journal or diary from prying eyes. Might even provide some level of protection from the quick in quick out smash and grab burglar provided you bolt it down. Keep in mind NONE of these budget safes can be considered secure from the determined burglar. They are not difficult to break into for someone with modest skills.
The safe works as intended. You can consider this more of a "lock keeps an honest man honest" type of safe. If someone really wants to break into this, it would not be overly difficult. Does a great job of keeping things out of quick grab reach. It would not keep out someone with true intent. Works for my purposes of keeping moderately valuable stuff. Be good for a dorm or a place with domestic staff to prevent the random moment of opportunity snatch and grab as you can bolt it down via the back, bottom, or both. If you truly are storing high end valuables, you should probably step up your game and get one that could hold up to a beating. I don't think this one would handle much if someone really put some effort into it.
I have two of these boxes now that are bolted to either a wall or shelf. One in the bedroom and one in another part of the house. I keep a couple handguns locked up. These safes are easy to program and are very secure from the standpoint it will keep kids and other unauthorized individuals from accessing handguns, pepper spray, ammunition, etc.
The box will not withstand an actual theft attempt. I believe with a small pry bar and hammer that I could get into this less than 60 seconds. I could be wrong, if not bolted down or screwed into a stud, then the box could just be carried off. Regardless, the point of this safe is not to withstand a home burglary, where the bad guy has minutes to locate and work on getting into the safe. If bolted down, the bad guy may clean out the easy stuff and get out.
What this safe will do is give peace of mind to the responsible gun owner. Change the factory default code, don't write it down for kids to find it, don't make an easily guessed code, etc., and there will be no worries about children getting hurt by handling the firearm without adult supervision.
The number one safety precaution is knowledge. We have one college student who when was very young we started teaching firearms safety. Take away the mystery, teach the Eddie Eagle (google it) safety principles. We lock up our firearms, but that doesn't mean every other house our child visits does the same! We are teaching the same thing to our youngest and she is learning that a firearm is a tool just like the kitchen knives, tools in the garage, the stove, lighters, etc.
Little off tangent there, but there should be zero child deaths because kids found "hidden" guns.
I give a four star, just nit picking, but the buttons for me could protrude just a little bit more, they are a little mushy and I find the knob a bit small for my big paws.
The keypad does not light up.
I unlock the one in the bedroom at night by opening the door and with the door open turn the knob to extend the two locking lugs. Now the door can not close, there is no way in the middle of the night in the dark that one will quickly access this box.
If looking for those features, i.e., lighted pad, big knob that won't slip out of your hand when in a hurry, then this is not the safe for you. I am in the routine for over 15 years now that I put my wallet and keys on my tall dresser by this safe, so when I wake up in the morning, I unlock the safe, close the door and then turn knob so it is secured until bedtime.
