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.
Bought this to replace my elderly mom's old Sentry box that had a broken lock. The new box was shipped to my elderly mother, who found it so heavy she couldn't lift it from the floor. Closing the box is unbelievably difficult. It takes considerable pressure to get the closing latch to engage. After it's engaged, it takes a feat of strength to unlatch it, which usually also feels like you've sheared a layer of skin from your hand after gripping the latch so hard to unlock it. Bottom line - poorly designed, poorly built product. We won't buy anything with this brand name again.
Great little safe, holds the truly important papers and valuables. Living in earthquake and wildfire country this safe is easy to grab and toss in the car. The only problem is that I couldn't get it registered with Sentry...their website was not functional and I gave up.
I had a Sentry Safe fireproof and water proof safe for too many years to count. The locking device was starting to go so I bought this one. It was impossible to get to lock. After almost one hour of trying I just gave up. I will stick with the old one and return this.
