Nice private safe that is simple to use, set up and setting a security code is simple. The keys provided create opening simple as well. My stuff are secure. This can be bolted down if desired. Holds Rx meds and jewelry nicely, as well as little documents like passports, birth certificates and cheques. Well-priced.
This flimsy safe is sold under false pretenses! There is no method that this safe is "fireproof" or actually secure. One could pry it begin with a hammer and a long handled chisel. If you subjected this safe to a house fire, the contents would be ashes and smoke. Call it what it really is: a private lock-box that can be mounted to the wall or floor. Don't say that it protects versus fire or water rry, this is going back...thanks, Amazon, for having such a amazing return just need to vet the claims of your products before posting them.
I wouldn't shop anything of extreme value in this since there are certainly ways to bypass the locking mechanism. However in terms of a functional digital safe at a reasonable price, this thing is fantastic!
Really poor item description !!!Is not water proof or fireproof as is labeled !!!And if you test to return it is even harder!!!!Think twice before ordering ...
I'm actually surprised that this seller has not been created to correct what is literally false advertisement. This product created me feel foolish for unpacking this safe and not immediately putting it back in the box. Instead, I noticed the huge holes in the sides and yelled to my mate in excitement, "You can mount it!" Wait... pause one minute... HOW IS IT WATERPROOF OR FIREPROOF WITH HOLES IN IT?!?! Well luckily for us, this safe was created with 100% raw Vibranium, mined directly from the lands of Wakanda. THANK YOU BLACK PANTHER!!! King, superhero, AND entrepreneur... a real inspiration. Well, just like my letter to him was returned to sender, so was this safe. The cheap plastic digital panel on the front doesn't help. The childish look and material grade of the key panel makes "My 1st Safe" the excellent name and allows parents to begin teaching the importance of security at any age.I guess the amazing news is that once all your cash and critical documents begin burning, any liquid in arms reach can be poured directly inside and all is forgotten.
Seems really cheaply made! Definitely not fire proof! The sides are about the thickness of dime so I’m almost positive anything inside will burn or melt if there is a fire, But it works fine to hold cheaper valuables in. I mounted mine sideways in a cabinet on my headboard to hold my pistol and a few other things inside and away from the kids. And it beeps really loud when a button is pressed and can be heard from another room if someone is messing with it.
This safe is total junk! There are several plastic components which are not mentioned in the description of the safe. The handle (which is plastic) jiggles when touched. Also, there is no method this safe can be fireproof. It is a very cheap product and I have started the return process.
Pros:Price--I paid $160 for this safe including shipping. This is a very competitive price. Stack-on might be a small cheaper, but has a reputation for not good quality and not good reliability with their biometric readers. Gunvault and Barska are both typically more expensive for a related size. So Viking wins amless welding--more durable, more secure, and looks better. What's not to like?Fingerprint reader--I scanned my index finger in 5 various positions/angles and then tested the safe's ability to read. It opened with my index fingerprint every time, but didn't begin when I tried a non-registered fingerprint. Better reliability than a lot of competing products.LED lighting inside (batteries included)--it's a nice touch and makes it simple to see what you've got stored.Ease of use--it's simple to register fingerprints, to turn sounds on or off, change batteries, etc. The user manual is actually surprisingly straightforward and understandable. I expected some horrible direct Chinese-to-English translation in the manual but it was actually fairly decent English.Fully-carpeted interior--don't wish to scratch the finish on your guns? This has you covered, no need to buy a liner ns:Finish--the non-scratch finish was chipped off in two areas when my safe arrived. Possibly due to shipping damage, but more likely due to not good application. One zone lost about a square inch of finish material on the upper left corner, the other zone was near one of the pre-drilled bolt holes in the floor of the safe--it looked like they applied the finish and then drilled the holds, and the finish had chipped during the drilling. I don't really care if the steel is exposed since I care more about function than appearance for my gun safe, but this may be an problem for some largest complaint, however, was lack of product testing. When my safe arrived I installed the batteries, registered my fingerprint, closed and locked the safe with the key, and then opened it with my fingerprint. Everything went smoothly. Then I tried to re-lock the safe. And nothing. The safe created a small whirring noise briefly, but did not lock. I tried again. Nothing. I referred back to the instructions, yes I was doing it right. I locked the safe with the key, then re-opened it with my fingerprint. No issues. But once again it wouldn't lock on its own. I repeated these steps with minor variations several times, but each and every time the safe failed to lock with its motor, and the only method I could obtain it to lock was manually with the key. Being mechanically minded I opened up the locking mechanism and started fiddling. After a few mins I was able to identify the problem--a little piece of the locking mechanism was snagging on one of the mounting bolts in the door. This needed me to disassemble the locking mechanism, bend some steel with pliers, and then carefully dremmel-smooth some edges. Once I did that and re-assembled the locking mechanism everything went smoothly. Now my safe functions perfectly. Opens and closes appropriately with key, PIN pad, or fingerprint. But it was a hassle getting there. I'm assuming that most people will use this safe to shop guns. If you own a gun, I'm assuming you know how to break it down and clean it. And if you can break down and clean a gun, you can break down and fix this safe no problem. The fix was not difficult or complicated. But the fact that I had to do it in the first put costs them one star in the review.
I ordered this safe a month ago to hold my H&K P2000 from my wife's son and house guests. I found a missing screw, and here's why I still gave it a 5 out of 5 below...After receiving my safe, it looked well, the measurements matched up, and was excellent for what I needed. I registered two scans of two fingers on each hand for both myself and my wife so that no matter what, we can obtain it open. Not only that, but we both know a key code we can share or use in case we're missing a finger. DID I SAY THEIR FINGERPRINT SCANNER WORKS EVERY TIME? DIRTY FINGER, WET FINGER, WHATEVER! I was very skeptical about biometric scanners not working like what's typical on computers.. not this thing, it works great. I would trust my life to it opening if someone broke in and I was going for my gun. The interior light is nice, although very primary in design. The batteries are common (AAA, or AA.. I forget, but it's easily replaceable with one phillips head screwdriver). The safe is very secure, created of thick metal, thicker than your average gun safe for sure, looks professional and high-tech, and even if the batteries die out you can still use a key on top of that.. talk about versatility. You can disable the sounds so that intruders won't hear you, or leave them on. It beeps occasionally if you leave it unlocked, reminding you to lock your **** back up before someone finds it! Comes with mounting screws, and they work well in my headboard's cubby space. Very secure. Size wise, I could lay out four full size pistols in this safe, although it would be tight. I have one pistol, a huge pistol cleaning kit, electronic earmuffs, 2 magazines, and a box of 50 rounds. It's a small tight, but everything fits neatly. The safe's mechanism is very easy if you pop it open, but it's not a military safe, it's an affordable highly secure safe with dozens of features packed in that just WORKS. I swapped out the batteries on purchase with fresh Duracels, just to be on the safe side, although the ones included worked fine when I tested it out. The most necessary thing to me however... was the companies customer service. They were apologetic, and fast to ship out a fresh screw to replace the one missing with my shipment for free, very quickly. Not only that but they maintained contact to create sure everything was going well with their product, that I received the missing piece, the experience with me as a customer as well. Honestly, I haven't felt this appreciated as a customer in a while. I felt like it was that mom and pop store that is excited that you even graced their shop with their presence, and wants you to be their fb mate more than tell you how much their fresh product costs, but they're still talking business too. This safe was the best value for what I was looking for, and now that I've had it for a month, if I had to replace it, I would just order this same one. Viking is my safe company of choice, and I spent a lot of time researching. Also, the packaging was beautiful amazing too.
At this price, you obtain what you pay for. If you have extremely valuable things that you need to store, then you need to obtain a better safe. This works for my purposes. You have to take additional measures to secure it. It's not massive and someone could just carry it off to crack later. I have a shelf built up versus a closed that I use for this. I bolted it to a shelf and then framed it in, just making it that much more difficult to obtain into to steal. It works well, is simple to set up, and is beautiful secure. You'll need to bolt it down to something at the bare minimum
Fingerprint reader works amazing as long as you pay attention to finger placement, the more fingerprints you store, the better it reads, gets you in 95% of the time, and if it doesn't, it just takes an additional second to redo. Thought this product would be heavier, although it's probably massive enough. Don't expect this safe or any other to add protection to your valuables, unless you bolt it down correctly, that being said, there are 2 holes on the back and 2 on the bottom. I think it would have been a better idea to have 4 holes on the back and bottom, as 2 allows a small bit of flex when someone my size tries to rip it from the wall (try as I did, I couldn't). Carpeting is nice, interior light and adjustable shelf is a nice touch. The door is mounted such that if you install the safe on a level surface, when it unlocks, it gently swings open, negating the need for a handle. The mechanism is motorized, which is probably the most necessary part of it, a lot of other safes (like the Harbor Freight, and a lot of on amazon) use the same poorly designed mechanism... If you hit them on top, or bump them as you turn the opener, they can be opened by hand, with no experience. Check YouTube, you'll see. All in all, beautiful good. Had some scratches on the back from the factory, but no biggie.
I thought i'd write a 2019 review. This is the 3rd safe I have ordered from Amazon and I am pleased. For whatever reason the other 2 biometric safes wont read my wife's fingers. Maybe because of short nail extenders, but we plan to use this as a jewelry safe so its beautiful necessary she can obtain in without a key. So the alternate keypad works great. For me I can use the fingerprint, but she cant. Contrary to other reviews the light is fine. If you are looking for something in the back.. maybe a LED flashlight. I love the motorized feature and the door opening by e safe arrived in perfect condition with enough Styrofoam so it would not be damaged. The carpeting looks great. As advertised it appears very sturdy and the key is not the easy round key so it is not likely you can pick the lock with a pen. All i have to do is mount it and it should be simple as it came with four bolts. I know its not water/fireproof and thats fine. There are other containers that suit that purpose. All in all this was exactly what I was looking for and I HIGHLY recommended this over other little safes.
Overall the product is well designed, and well built. But I have concerns about the reliability of the fingerprint reader. After setting up the product, and the combination key. I went and registered my two thumb and index fingers. Alarmingly, my pinky, which was unregistered, was able to unblock the safe. Not with 100% accuracy, But around 1 in 7 attempts. 1 in 7 attempts too a lot of in my opinion. I'm hoping that if the safe is ever truly place to the test, whoever is attempting to break into the safe wouldn't know how passive the fingerprint reader intent was to use this safe to lock up my firearms. If there are young kids in the household, I'd strongly recommend getting another safe, or to try their fingerprints with the safe to see if it will unblock it.
I received my safe today and just finished installing it. I appreciate the solidness of the construction and the biometric reader works well, but I was actually disappointed by the light inside the safe, which is cheaply made. The negative contact spring in the battery compartment is soldered at an angle such that just a small bit of vibration (like when you are putting the light back in the safe) can unseat the batteries - which means you have to take the light out and test to place it back in again without unseating the batteries. Also, the switch to turn off the light wasn't working at all when the door was closed (I confirmed this by recording a video with my cell phone in the safe and closing the door). I had to bend the switch arm to make more of an angle so that there was enough pressure on the mechanism with the door closed to turn the light off. Overall, minor annoyances that do not relate to the true purpose of the safe... but an annoyances all the same.
Absolutely awesome quality. Simple to set up... Accurate fingerprint reader. The motor to begin and shut the safe is quiet too. The fingerprint reader lights up which makes it simple to see in the dark....But you have to press the # key on the board to obtain the fingerprint reader to light up (in total darkness it will be hard to search the # button...So I will just hold a really dim light near the safe). Once it opens... Even in total darkness it's simple to see what's inside the safe with the internal led. It also comes with mounting hardware to bolt permanently in place. I also own a biometric "gunvault brand" which is nice and reliable....But comparing the two....The Viking is far better quality. Could easily fit 4 pistols and mags....Or 2 with mags and 10+ boxes of ammo.
I purchased this safe and after 5 mins of use the biometric scanner and keypad stopped working. I called the company. I missed their call and thus called back and left email address. They sent me some instructions on remedies to the problem. Nothing worked. They sent out another safe. This one worked but the LCD was missing several characters. They offered to send another safe, but I declined. Would hate for the safe to fail at a crucial moment. Amazing price and response from company was amazing but quality control severally lacking.
I bought this based on other network review websites which placed this safe as the best, should have believed the posts from Amazon. I followed the instructions exactly, several times, and it would not work. To begin the safe all I had to do, after following the instructions, was push the * or # button and it would open. I contacted the company via email and they responded the next day with troubleshooting actions, including removing the lock mechanism cover from the inside and doing several things with the electronics inside. I had already returned it through Amazon as they responded immediately the night I contacted them with a return shipping. Perhaps they should verify the proper functioning of their product before shipping it out. Exceptionally not good quality assurance. Will never consider Viking in the future and recommend no one else does either, unless you just like lugging 28 pound safes around for returns, or heavier if you obtain the larger versions. STEER CLEAR.
Amazing small safe.....I just love these safes.... and after looking around at numerous various brands, I always came back to Viking's safes as being the best value for the money... and also because of the quality of their build. Having 3 options to begin them is a amazing feature. And because there is a key option, you won't ever obtain locked out of it, if the electronics ever fail. Being 64, I figured the fingerprint reader probably wouldn't work for me... but happily it did! I used my middle finger because my thumbs and index fingers always obtain cut, nicked, etc. working around the house. Sadly, it didn't work for my girlfriend, but it worked both for me, and my e keys are 4-sided, and very robust... not the kind of lock just anyone could pick, maybe only a locksmith could do it. Keypad works great... and a very nice feature is the LED light inside, which comes on when the door ey've generously supplied some hardware to anchor the safe to the floor or wall, but the idea didn't really appeal to me. You would either have to bolt it to the floor (which is not convenient) or to a wall stud which would not work very well. The little size would let only 1 fastening point, since studs are 16" apart. My idea was to use some 3/16" steel aircraft cable, with a little loop on one end of the cable, feed the cable through the inside back hole, until the loop stops it. I created the cable 12' long. Then I drilled a 1/4" hole through my bedroom floor, behind the middle of my low dresser, through the carpet molding at the baseboard. That way, you can still take the molding off when you obtain fresh carpeting and locate the safe to anywhere on the dresser. I fed the cable into the basement, and secured the end of the cable (near the hole), in a circular fashion, using common cable/wire staples to the 2x10's holding the floor up, after bending the cable in a circle, and nailing the staples over the cable in all the curves. No thief is going to spend that much time trying to either chop the 3/16" cable, or pull out 8, 10, or 15 wire staples (your choice) on the basement ceiling.I happen to have a big, cable-crimping tool myself, and had to decide which sized wire would work for this securing problem. The next size down was 1/8" cable, and there was no doubt in my mind as to which cable was the right choice. The 3/16" cable looks heavy next to the 1/8" cable (as shown in the pictures) even though it's only 50% larger. I have some amazing cable cutting nippers that chop the little items in a snap, whereas they couldn't chop the 3/16" stuff..... even my 18" long bolt cutters couldn't chop the bigger cable. I had to use a hammer and cold chisel, to actually chop the stuff.... Because of the stiffness of the wire, I found that the loop may turn (inside the safe) and cause the shelf to lift. It's not a huge deal to just adjust the cable a bit to cure that, but I will create my girlfriend's safe just a bit different.... rather than making a loop, I created hers with a easy cable stop. These cannot be pulled off by any normal human, but for a bit more "extra" security I place 2 on, instead of ese safes are well worth the money, and their representative Monica was very gracious... she answered all the questions I asked, and even had the boxes opened and quality checked, per my request, before shipment to me. Overall I am very happy with my purchase. I actually bought 3 of them... and everyone loves them.Hope you enjoyed my review.
I did a lot of research to test to obtain the best safe of this size at a reasonable price. Since it seems a lot of reviewers are compensated these days I will say definitively that I did NOT keep a discount or a free product for my review. I ordered it at the list price just like anyone else to shop some "machined steel parts" that I'd prefer my children didn't access without supervision.1) This safe has a motorized actuator to retract the deadbolts rather than a knob that the user must twist. This obviously reduces the number of steps to begin but more importantly limits vulnerability to "safe bumping" (look it up on YouTube) which a lot of related safes are vulnerable to. Since the person trying to bump can't load up the knob while bumping it that makes it impossible to bump, at least in the "traditional" manner. It's quick too. Should the mechanism fail the key can be used to retract the deadbolts manually.2) The key mechanism seems very secure. It's a bit hard to obtain in (It only goes in one method even though it looks symmetrical) and you have to remove a plate to access the key hole but it's really just for access in a dead battery condition. It seems like it would be very difficult to defeat.3) The restart button is well protected on the interior. Other related safes have had vulnerabilities where a little hole could be popped in the plastic keypad then a wire could be used to fish around and press the interior restart button, restoring the default codes. This one would require drilling through metal to do 's not an impenetrable fortress obviously, but it's a very amazing powerful box with fast auto-pilot e fingerprint reader is quite good. Not up there with TouchID on an iOS device but close. At first I only enrolled each finger once. This worked well but maybe 5-10% of the time I'd obtain "err" on a registered finger. I opted to go back and enroll a single finger on each hand 5x each. It's near 100% reliable now. On the screen sometimes it will recognize the same finger as one of the other ID#s that it was enrolled as rather than erroring y one minor gripe about the beeper/documentation. It's not loud but it's a bit loud for certain applications. I wanted to turn it off so I consulted the documentation. It stated to press "0 & (*)" which I attempted, numerous times. To me (and I imagine most) the "&" indicates that both buttons should be pressed together so I didn't really even think about it. I spent 5 mins or so doing various combinations. Press both briefly and simultaneously, press and keep 0, then press *, vise versa, etc. As it turns out you press 0 THEN * and it works fine.
I have shopped on Amazon for a lot of years but have yet to write a review, however, my experience with the Viking Safe VS-20BLK Mini warrants a review. I purchased the safe for $129.79 on April 22. 2017 and it was delivered 5 days later on the 27th. Setting up the fingerprint feature was fairly easy by scanning your forefinger several times to enable the scanner to accurately and quickly read your forefinger which causes the safe door to begin (the door bolts are withdrawn from the lock position electrically). To begin the safe you activate the finger scanner by pressing the pound (#) key, then put your finger on the scanner and the door opens. To lock the safe close the door and press either the pound (#) key or the asterisk (*) and the safe locks the door electrically. If the safe door is left ajar or begin after one min or so the safe emits a period beep ter the return window to Amazon had expired, in early June I heard the safe emitting the beeping sound signaling the door was open. On inspection, the door was in fact, closed. On touching the pound (#) key to activate the scanner, the scanner did not activate, but the door unlocked and opened. In fact, I discovered later that pressing either the pound (#) key or the asterisk (*) key would unblock the safe, bypassing the scanner,. I restart the safe back to default setting and again registered my fingerprint thinking this might correct the matter. After about 1 hour, same problem, safe commenced emitting beep sound with door locked and pressing either the pound or asterisk keys, without scanning my fingerprint, unlocked the safe.I emailed my concerns to Viking. On their www service they have a query page for problems that promises a response within 48 hours. It has been about 4 weeks with no response from them. On the manual that comes with the safe each page has what appears to be their phone number. Calling that number has been the best phone screening I have experienced. When the call is answered a voice says "state your name" which I did and absolute silence thereafter. So if you buy this product and have the same experience, and are outside the Amazon return window, be advised you are on your own, there is no warranty if you cannot speak to someone to exercise it, there is no recourse, you are stuck.I have not yet decided if there would be more value to sell it to the local ironmonger for its scrap metal value or turn it on its back with door begin and put a potted geranium in it for some artsy aesthetic value.
I am in law enforcement, and this in my opinion, is a unbelievable safe. Keeps firearms (or anything) very secure. Gives you very fast access with one fingerprint. You of course could use the keypad instead. It has a battery life indicator, so no more guessing if it's going to open. Interior light, as well as two carpeted shelves are amazing features. Fits amazing under a nightstand/shelf. Questions created directly to manufacture company were answered promptly and professionally.
I purchased this safe 2 1/2 years ago and loved it until the electronics completely stopped working. Up until that point the fingerprint scanner always read the first time, the safe is super beefy, and the battery life is amazing. One set of batteries lasts well over a year. Unfortunately after I changed out the batteries this week the LED screen went blank and the finger print scanner won’t light up. I tried various batteries and even took the safe apart to confirm with a voltmeter that the 4 AA battery package was putting out a proper 6V to the circuit board. It’s official.... the keypad and fingerprint scanner are dead. This would be a 5 star safe but for $160 I expect the electronics on a biometric safe to latest longer than 2 1/2 years. I’ll contact their customer service to see if they’ll do anything for me and I’ll modernize my review if I obtain a positive response.
I did a lot of research before buying my Viking VS-20BLX safe. The only negative I have found is the textured paint is so tough and thick it caused the door to be hard to begin once the safe is unlocked. About 2 mins work with some sand paper solved that problem. Take your time and read the directions for setting up the lock mechanism. They tell you everything you need to know in plain English. The safe locks and unlocks exactly as it should. You can turn off the key beeps so entering the combination or using the Biometric fingerprint reader is absolutely silent. There is a very slight gear noise as the mechanism retracts the locking bolts. Its very subtle and probably cannot be heard or identified across the average size bedroom. Overall the safe is well made, very sturdy and a amazing value with none of the security weaknesses of the competition. It's huge enough to accommodate even huge handguns. It can't be opened with a paper clip like one of the top brand safes. An 8 lb sledge hammer would beat the hell out of it but I doubt the safe can be opened that method either. Create sure you anchor it solidly. I didn't like the wall anchors that came with the safe. I could have used them but they were not the best for my installation. A few dollars at the local hardware shop solved that me people have voiced issues with the biometic fingerprint reader. Even the paperwork that came with the safe recommended senior citizens not rely on the reader. Older folks have thinner dryer skin that's harder for the scanner to read. I HAVE DISCOVERED A SIMPLE WORK ROUND FOR THIS PROBLEM. BEING 66 I HAVE THE DRY THIN SKIN. I SIMPLY MOISTEN MY FINGER TIP SLIGHTLY ON MY TONGUE BEFORE PLACING IT ON THE READER. THIS WAY THE READER WORKS VIRTUALLY 100% OF THE TIME.I plan on buying a second VS-20BLX soon.
This was purchased as a gift. I did a lot of research and shopping for a print - biometric before selecting this model. I was not disappointed. This safe is very well constructed, roomy for more than one firearm and opens quickly which was my main concern. It was also one of the best buys for the money, in my opinion. I was surprised by the sheer weight of this safe. The weight is also a positive attribute in my opinion. With a fresh Granddaughter in the household this safe is going to, it will bring some peace of mind to the fresh home of this safe.
I really love this safe. Read reviews on a various brand that was a @#$%!&eaper. Compared the reviews and realized this one has no zone in between the door and wall so it's virtually impossible to pry open. It also has a shelf and a light. It was simple to set up the finger print access and the number code. I'd highly recommend this safe!Update 12/17: ordered 2nd safe as a bonus for family member and they love it as well.
The biometric lock devise never worked properly (slow), then just over two months, stopped working altogether. Had to use key to begin which is totally unacceptable. Have removed and replaced with another make. Would like to be able to return this safe if at all possible.A very disappointed customer,R.W. Burroughs
What the heck? I understand a lot of things have expiration dates, but the BUYER / USER??? I read the information on Amazon carefully before buying this safe, and had the recommendation versus using the biometric (fingerprint reader) feature been prominently displayed, I would not have bought it (being age 61). We'll see if my ancient fingerprints work, but hold that user-set PIN (and factory supplied keys) nearby (assuming one's aging mind can remember....). In the past reviews, here is a portion of the users who buy the product who can't obtain the biometric feature to work correctly. I wonder if they too are Ancient Mariners (over 55)? I'll bet a LOT of the buyers don't read the manual carefully and see this warning. AMAZON - MAKE THE SELLER PUT THIS WARNING IN A CLEAR PLACE BEFORE AN ORDER CAN BE PLACED.
The size just fits in the closet and unlocks. It takes two ways to compare it with the rigorous home! There are also fixing holes that can be fixed on the wall.
Love it. Spacious, amazing material and simple to mount. Comes with the tools, bolts and batteries. I have one more safe but that is small, this on the other hand has more room and look rough and tough.
We recently moved from our old home where we had a huge and massive safe. I was looking for a more compact safe for our fresh smaller home that would also provide some security for some valuables and necessary documents. I ordered this safe and am happy with its design and ease of use. While it is compact - there was more than enough room for a dozens of valuables. In order to further deter theft of the safe itself, I took the opportunity to bolt the safe to the floor with the included hardware.
I have never owned a safe before. This one was simple to setup and I've been using it to shop jewelry and necessary papers. I'm in and out of it often. It has mounting brackets, but I just hold it on a shelf. Changing the combination is a bit tricky because your have to hit restart which is in the battery compartment (otherwise I would give it 5 stars). It seems like amazing safe at a reasonable price.
Just received the Digital Safe Box Brand:YincuiokMaterial:High Quality SteelDimension:13.79 (Length) × 9.84 (Width) × 9.84 (Height)",0.74 Cubic ems as described tho I thought it would more substantial. My bad! HOWEVER...the first instruction is to begin the safe by inserting the emergency key by first removing the lock cover. It takes a hex key to begin the cover. NO HEX KEY INCLUDED!!! NO INFO ABOUT WHAT SIZE HEX KEY IS NEEDED!!! Had to go out and buy a set. VERY BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE.
This safe is perfect. It is super simple to program and has no problems reading the fingerprint unlike my iPhone. Comes with an 18650 battery and has charging capabilities so you don't have to worry about it dying on you and having to search the key in the junk drawer.
I love this safe, modern technology meets the amazing old fashion steel safe. It is created of harder carbon steel weighing about 9 lbs. There are basically 4 ways to unblock the safe: 1. backup key, 2. master pin code, 3. finger prints or 4. Use an app. I would than tie down the safe with a amazing old fashion steel e fingerprint biometric sensor is accurate. It is so simple to setup, in fact if you have an Apple Touch ID on a iPhone or iPad, it is exactly the same concept. It unlocks instantly each time by fingerprint, your finger has to be dry. I had no issue at all, it unlocks so fast. The craftsmanship is superior.A light comes on when the safe is opened. It uses a standard rechargeable 18650 Lithium Ion battery that just cost a few dollars these days to replace. Battery is recharge by USB or I can use my own charger.If a wrong entry is made, it times-out for 5 mins and the only method is to use the key without waiting.
This is a amazing small biometric safe. Keeing in mind this is barely a theft detterant but instead a means to safely shop a firearm. For that purpose it fits my needs. The lock is instant and there os amazing speed in using the biometric to begin as you can see in my video.
Got this to lock pistol away from keeps things locked safely and provides simple access quickly when has a lot of options to open, keys, pin code, fingerprint and bluetooth application as shown in the is is little enough to hold in vehicle and comes with a locking eat safe with a lot of features and functionalities.
This gun safe seems to be well made. It has two latches on each side of the lid and has a positive click when you close the ere is plenty of room for a 1911 and additional magazine plus room for another smaller pistol like a .ry happy with the room inside. It does have a little LED to light up the interior. Programming the unit seemed simple with the App. I did test a manual setup with the buttons inside and it took longer to set up. But the Application was very simple and I recommend just using that. The fingerprint scanner works well. I don't have to always keep my finger in the exact same position to have it recognize my fingerprint. I can have my finger at an angle on the sensor and it opens. As noted if you have a dry finger it may not work well but you can always input your code can also be opened with the 2 keys that come with it.I charged it up with my cellphone charger and the front LED will change from red (charging) to green (fully charged). Also the Application will present the charge remaining. The Application only works when you wake up the safe by pressing any button or opening it. Otherwise the Application will not wake up the safe's WiFi.
Excellent safe for handgun. .Very solid built. The metal seems to be very thick. Simple to setup code, fingerprints and app. Fingerprint function answer very fast, that is very necessary when you need your gun. It has enough room for two handguns. The led lights turn on when it's begin is also very helpful. The safety cable can prevent thieves from stealing the safe. I hold this safe by my bed so I can obtain access to it faster. Highly recommended.
Great product. Sturdy and give me an ease of mind making sure that my child won't messed up with it. The fingerprint is very sensitive. Had a small issue with the application but finally worked after restarting the safe. Simple to install
It is amazing for fast access, and has foam padding that keeps everything in put better for if you're moving the safe. Amazing for keeping small fingers off my bedside pistol and simple enough that my wife who stays home has fast access. And the coolest part is the lift mechanism, which quietly opens the top for you when you enter the code! You don't even have to lift it! The construction is massive and solid. The lid has a downward angle that makes it nearly impossible to pry begin (not that I tried....but it looks hard!). Overall, I'm satisfied with the case and will continue to secure my firearm inside of it.
You will be satisfied with this purchase. The BILLCONCH Biometric Gun Safeholds almost exactly a Glock 19, three magazines, and a speed loader, which should give you some idea of the size. It comes with everything you'd want: Security cable, two keys, Lithium Ion battery already charged, charging cable, mounting screws, additional battery compartment screw in case you lose one, and clear instructions. That would be amazing for most gun safes at this ever, the compelling thing here are the electronic features. This has a tablet application with which you can begin your different BILLCONCH Biometric safes, see the battery life, adjust the brightness of the interior light, and it notifies you if the safe has been tampered with. The keypad has 5 backlit buttons, numbered 1-5, and allows a 4-8 digit security code. It reacts instantly, and backlights when your hand comes close to or touches the unit. It locks securely with pins on both ends of the ing the keypad, you can also check different functions; battery life, toggling sound on/off, tampering, etc. I like that it has a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery, which is so much better than regular batteries. The RECHARGEABLE LITHIUM-ION the intelligent biometric safe battery is provides power up to 5-6000 times use, and charges in 2.5 hours with the included micro-USB charging kit and a port on the outside of the BILLCONCH. The bluetooth is paired through the app, not the phone's bluetooth settings. You can Obtain in fast when it matters most using the rapid backlit keypad，spare key or biometric fingerprint scanner. It has LED LIGHTING so in low light situations so you can locate your pistol safe with the backlit keypad and easily view your safe contents with interior LED light . You can also set the silent mode, don't worry about making a sound when unlocking on nightThe BILLCONCH has a substantial feel to it, a healthy weight, as though no corners were chop in the manufacturing. If I had any complaint, and it is hard to search one, I would question that the battery indicator on the keypad shows 75% charged while the Application says 100% charged. Even with that, this just seems like a superior product to the cheaper safes out there, offering so a lot of more features, and giving you everything you need in one package. It is clear that BILLCONCH is working hard to make a amazing product.
My teen showed me how to "break open" the safe.1. Obtain on your knees facing a couch.2. Keep safe with front facing to right 12 inches or more above couch cushion.3. Press your hand versus the lever and apply pressure counter-clockwise.4. Drop and allow bounce off couch. On the upside of the bounce, if you maintained your pressure on the lever the door will w her do it on one try. Saw three tries.Looking for fresh safe.
The overall build quality is ok, and it looks amazing if a @#$%!&eap, but the materials are lackluster. First there is NO fireproof insulation in this safe. It is solely created of plastic and steel, and as a effect has no certification for e safe walls are very thin, (~1.5mm including paint) not 2mm as advertised, the door is just under 3mm, again including the paint. At the least this is misleading. Normally the thickness measurements are on the bare metal. As a effect the safe is vulnerable to prying attacks, or even a cheat saw, or hammer could be used with minor effort, to expose the contents. As a result, it is very light, even for a safe this sized. It should be properly secured, using the bolt holes provided, on the back and bottom. If not it could be simply grabbed and easily opened e hinge is recessed but is very lightweight and with no bolts on the hinge side is vulnerable as e locking mechanism is standard for a safe in this price range and the backup key is adaquate. The handle is nice and huge and is simple for an older person to closing. If properly secured it should resist your standard smash and grab robbery but that’s about it. I bought this for my father-in-law to shop his medications and a bit of money in, and it is more than adaquate to discourage nosey houseguests from pilfering. For the price, it’s not bad, but I have bought better for around the same price point.
This product is created of maybe 1/16" steel, hardly reinforced. The door is thick and heavy, though. There is no fire rating for this safe, nor is there even a mention of it being fireproof in the manual/documentation. There is no insulation whatsoever on 5 of the 6 sides of the cube that it is.I would imagine if you place this product in an oven set to broil that your precious documents would burn, your credit cards would melt, your money would be lost, and your herbs would be smoked.
I bought this to shop private valuables. It's intent is to hold honest people honest. We have housekeepers, service people, mate of friends, etc. visiting our house. The lock is simple to use. I actually have gotten more rotation of my dress-up jewelry because it is no longer stored in my husband's gun safe. I have my own small spot for my private stuff. I would recommend it to all you ladies looking for a secure storage solution with simple access.
Would have been amazing if it wasn’t so cheap and if it worked. The handle is created of super cheap plastic, feels like I could rip it off at any point. When I opened the batteries there was battery acid all over them.I tried to set the code a lot of times but it won’t work. It beeps but it doesn’t save the code so I have to use the n’t great
Definitely worth the money. I expected it to be a small bigger and if it wasn't for the fact that I already know about safes, I wouldn't have created heads or tails of the instructions. I'm using my safe for sensitive medications. I live in an apartment complex where the maintenance guys and the property manager are able to enter the troops whenever they want, plus there are unit inspections biyearly and HUD inspections yearly. The method I see it is better safe than sorry.
This safe did everything I was hoping for its amazing for cash and documents and it comes with bolts to place in the floor it comes with 2 keys and batteries for the tuch pad the tuch pad is water resistant so no problem there and it's just little anof to fit eny were you won't
I have only had this for just a few days but so far so good. It’s a decent small safe for the price it is. If you are wanting something just to hold some little things in, or out of reach for a kid and your not wanting to pay those huge prices then this one should do you well. It comes with the screws to bolt it to a surface as well as a small lining for the inside which I thought was nice. The set up is super easy! The only con that I have so far is that the door handle isn’t as sturdy/ tight as I would prefer. It has a bit of a wobble so that makes me a little bit concerned as to if it will break after some usage or not. Other than that I am very impressed with the quality and the ease of use/set up. It fit my needs perfectly and I would recommend it to others.
If I had looked a small closer at the overall size inside this safe I probably would have ordered a bigger size. We were able to fit all our papers inside with very small zone left over. Will be more observant of measurements if I decide to obtain something bigger. Over-all this is a amazing small safe with a secure locking system and will be relatively simple to hide away, But, I should have created a more informed purchase, my bad.
This brush protected the bulk of my money while traveling in Nicaragua. One night we had a break-in, and the money in my wallet and purse was stolen--but the cash stashed in this was protected. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, especially if you are traveling and need to carry a huge amount of cash. I could fit about 12-15 bills in it.
Not only worked as a diversion safe but, for me, it worked as a brush too! I just have a simple, short, guy haircut so this was a double-duty item. But - even if you end up bringing two hairbrushes, it's still going to be effective. No one is going to steal the brush for the [email protected]#$%!&?'s not that ere isn't a whole lot to say here but I noticed there weren't any pictures in these reviews so I'm here to provide them!TIP: Test it out at home to determine how a lot of bills you can place in it and still obtain them out with your finger. When I first used it, I rolled up too a lot of bills, I couldn't obtain them out without the support of tweezers to carefully extract the roll. When I limited myself to four bills, I could stick my pinky finger it and draw out the bills. Just don't create your first attempt to use this when you are in a foreign country without a toolset to pull the bills out.Hope that helps!
I bought this brush for an extended overseas trip where I required to carry a huge amount of money due to unreliable access to ATMs. I stayed in hostels and primary accommodation without a safe during my trip, without incident. I had researched travel safes but the cheaper options all seem to be easily broken into. Since they are no deterrent to a determined thief, I would rather not draw attention to where I am keeping my valuables. I decided a cash belt, some creative hiding places, a easy lock on my suitcase (and a cable to secure it while staying in hostel dorms) and this incognito item was the method to go. It fit 13 tightly rolled bills - although I had some difficulty removing them. Test to leave a "tail" that you can use to fish out the entire roll or just use tweezers. I considered buying one of the larger brushes that shop up to 30 bills but they looked comically huge and this option seemed more discreet. I used it as a normal brush for a week before I left so that it looked well used and was indistinguishable from a normal hairbrush.
Amazing for kids to have a small additional money in their bags. I bought it for my daughter to take in her bag with a 20 inside. Kids are sometimes mischievous and might look into her bag to steal something, nobody would steal a hairbrush with hair on it.... amazing idea..
So I went on vacation back in May and didn't wish to just leave cash laying around cause there was no safe in the condo I stayed at. So I bought this hidden cash brush and I was very impressed. Like others said before, it's actually and nice brush to use and you can't even tell it has a hidden compartment. I will be taking it with me on every vacation now, thanks.
I love the brush and it’s brilliant multifunctional/ multipurpose design helps divert others attention and helps with easily being able to stash/hide away valuables and gets “them” stored discreetly and safely. At the same time it’s not so noticeable; yet it does whats it really is too... a hair brush!! This nifty brush has actually been a hold instrument in helping “save” me a few times if you know what I mean...lol :-)Who ever thought of this *Kudos* to you and thank you for a unbelievable item!Extremely useful, helpful and budget effective too! If the red colourful one is good, imaging how much more effective and better that black colourful one is! That’ll be my next purchase lol
I used this on a latest trip through Africa. The hiding feature worked amazing - I was able to fit 14 tightly rolled US bills into the handle. It looks like a true hairbrush. Just don't use it as one!!!! The handle snapped off the hairbrush after 3 days of use - rendering it completely useless (and me without a hairbrush). I wound up throwing it out after only 3 days of use. If you purchase this, run it through your hair a few times to obtain some hair in it, then don't use it again. However, then you have to bring a second hairbrush which might look suspicious. With that said, how a lot of thieves are going to count the number of hairbrushes you have?
Every house I have lived in the past 20yrs (4) have had this safe. Latest week my house was broken into. The thieves that broke into my house tried to use a grinder, a hammer, and a drill to obtain into my safe with no luck(good thing they didn't bring a sawzall). Even after that hit the key pad with a hammer, the key pad still worked!The claw hammer they used broke off inside my safe as you can see by the picture below those two metal objects are from the hint of the claw hammer that broke off inside my safe. I Can't say enough about this product! I highly highly recommend it. This safe is an exceptional value for the dollar
Ordered this Paragon wall safe for a mate of mine and it seems like a beautiful amazing safe, but there is something you should know about it before you purchase e quality seems fairly amazing and it weights about 37 pounds. The door is about 0.2 inches thick (I was unable to measure the box part of the safe). It is not a fire safe. The electronic locking mechanism works well and is an make batter from the Paragon 7700 model. There is a beep when you press a key but I didn't think it was excessively loud. There are 2 keys included in case the batteries run down. There are 2 shelves included which are held in put by 2 little bolts, so they can be easily removed, but the brackets are welded into put so you can't readily change the shelf height. If you plan to mount the safe in the floor, then you'll probably need to drill a hole or two in the door and mount some kind of handle in order to lift the door.What you should know about this safe is that there is not as much zone inside the safe as it appears. (See the images I've uploaded.) The safe is about 3.75 inches deep. The problem is that the locking mechanism takes up a lot of space. It's nearly as wide and tall as the zone between the two shelves. And the locking mechanism is nearly 2 inches in depth. So given that the safe is about 3.75 inches deep, the zone you'll have between the two shelves is only about 1.75 inches in depth by 7.25 inches high by 14 something inches wide. So basically you've lost half of the zone between the two are some hints on installing a wall safe: You may wish to be sure you have a zone to install the safe before you order it. Note that the door hinge is on the right side. You'll need to chop a hole approximately 14.25 inches wide by 20.5 inches tall (be sure to measure your safe, excluding the front lip). To search a zone between the wall studs you may need to use a magnetic or electronic stud finder. When cutting the hole be cautious because you don't wish to chop any electrical wires in the wall. And you probably should avoid cutting sheetrock on walls that have the exterior on the opposite side because they will likely have insulation between the studs. Six bolts are included to bolt the safe to the 2x4 studs. If you use these bolts you'll need a 10 mm socket.
I got this safe and installed it fairly quickly - within two hours (and not working very hard on it). Note that a huge portion of the center section of shelving is consumed by the lock mechanism, but I suppose that is what you wish when you buy a wall safe. The idea being that it should be hidden behind a huge e Photos:1. Using a stud finder, identify the zone of two studs. The exact horizontal areas wont be precise, but don't worry about that. Just tag where you wish the top and bottom inner lip of the safe to be (ie 2 horizontal lines - one on top and one on bottom). Locate the studs using a sheetrock saw, and draw your box on the wall starting from the top or bottom lines. Then saw right down versus your studs until you reach one of the horizontal lines.2. Remove any insulation that may be in the wall and be sure your chop lines are straight.3. Put the safe into the hole you just chop and using a pencil, tag the studs through the screw holes in the side of the safe. Drill out the holes you just marked. Be sure to use a drill bit that is a tad smaller than the shank of the provided wood screws. This will create it a lot easier to screw in the screw.4. Put the safe back in the hole and use a ratchet to fasten the wood 5 is a shot of the installed safe. Note the battery compartment door on the door. I did have a bit of problem getting the batteries to initially stay put, but haven't had any issues since. The doors are spring loaded and will pop begin when 6 is a shot of the combo restart button - be sure to use it as mentioned in the instructions. Not being one to fully read the instructions, I set the combo several times and it seemed like it was accepted by the safe. I restart it several times because it never would begin - I was thinking I will have to return this darn thing until I broke down and fully read the instructions. The red button needs to be for the rating. I really do like the safe, but I believe it has a potentially risky flaw. If the batteries go dead, you can begin the safe with the provided barrel shaped key (?) and I like that fact that is one of those round keys and should create it a bit less susceptible to lock picking attempts. Here's the issue - the key lock is hidden behind the combo key pad and is secured by a Philips head screw. I am thinking that the time I REALLY need to obtain into this safe ASAP, the batteries will be dead and I will be fumbling to search a screwdriver. Sure, I can hold one near the safe, but why should I have to?
When the unit arrived one of the shelves was detached and the bolts to secure it were missing. After installing the unit on the wall the locking mechanism was not working. I decided to take a look inside the mechanism by removing the back plate and disconnecting the battery package from the circuit my surprise the locking solenoid was hanging from one lose bolt and the other bolt was missing. I was able to attach the solenoid with a metric bolt that I had. The unit then operated e quality control is non-existent and the engineering ,The interior mechanism is the flimsiest you could imagine, it is truly pathetic and I very much doubt it would keep up to a crowbar.I would have returned the unit if not for the fact that it was already on the wall and a replacement would be the same is is a locking box but a SAFE it is not!The box itself seems ok but the lock is a joke. If you are looking to hold a gun away from kids it should do the job, If you need to protect anyvaluables you need to look elsewhere.
This thing is solid - seems to be 1/4" plate steel. It's massive and I'm confident that should it be installed, it would deter thieves. Now, the poor - it will also deter the owner of the valuable contents! it's not functional. The rotating lock/unlock plastic knob simply broke off in my hand rendering the lock moot. The "multi-product all purpose" directions were clear in that a key required to be inserted in the mechanism, but no lock exists that would let the key to be inserted,...very weird. And I ordered it NEW and it was delivered clearly USED - very irritating. This would create a amazing boat anchor. I am rarely THIS disappointed with an amazon purchase.
First of all, everything you need to know was in the description and in the pictures. I installed this in less than 30 mins and that was including vacuuming up the sheet rock fore you test to install it, read through the instructions and obtain down the process of locking and unlocking. It tells you not to lock the keys in the safe, so don’t. Try out your codes and create sure both work. Once you obtain that down, you will be fine. Yes, you have to remove the small screw to begin up the panel to access it with the key. You may wish to search a little pocket screwdriver to hold around the safe should you need it.

You may wish to search a little pocket screwdriver to hold around the safe should you need it.1) if your house is a newer construction from the latest 20+ years, your wall studs should be 16 inches apart. I would use a stud finder, available for less than $10 everywhere, to tag the edges of your studs. Once you do that, quickly measure to see if they are close to 16 inches.2) next I used a level and marked a line straight down on the edge of one of the studs. I then chop that line out what the sheet rock saw available for less than $10 and any tool store.3) next I chop both the top and bottom horizontal lines after I measured them. Then finally I chop out the other side vertical line.4) I remove the piece of sheet rock and said that on the side. Then I placed the safe and to the opening. Once I’ve verified I had enough clearance, I did the code and begin the door.5) i’ve then, using a pencil, marked the three holes on each side of the safe where the screws will go.6) next i used a drill bit, smaller than the diameter of the screws, and drilled my six holes.7) I then installed all six per only complaint is that I would like the beeping sound to be turned off so that I could access in secret. Another person stated he removed the beeping mechanism from the circuit board. I may test that.
Fit for purpose and robust, but limited zone inside. Fast and simple installation - read the reviews on how to obtain to the key slot to begin it before you activate the combination lock. Maximum useable depth is 3.5 inches. But the locking mechanism protrudes into the storage zone with the effect that a bit less than 1/3 of the inner zone has a useable depth of only 1.5 inches. Also, the keypad on the outside protrudes about 1/2 inch, so you have to work around that if you wish to cover the safe from view with something like a picture. Loss of the inner zone is apparently the price you pay for the robust locking pins. The middle and upper shelves are removable but not height adjustable (with a drill and two L brackets it would be simple to change the height of the shelves but the inner lock mechanism will limit how much you can move them). I used some narrow drawer organizers to place things in. Its surprising how much you can fit into the tight zone if you use it wisely.
Arrived quickly. Was simple to install. I first located the studs and chop a little hole from side-to-side to create sure there was nothing in the way. Then chop the hole the size of the back of the safe. Marked holes for bolts. Pre-drilled. And finished attaching it to the studs. Voila!
I bought this as a hidden thing that is a deterrent. I am not operating Fort Knox. For the cash it is a amazing value so at 4 stars I am rating it as a thing at this will wish to buy something to keep documents folded and vertical. ~1/3 of alleged volume is filled by lock mechanism, but I knew that and bought and it works for me to keep some things of value. I used cash clips, epoxied a magnet, stuck them to back and door. This then holds my $millions and passports and credit cards. Voila.Damn near impossible to install with door on. I took it off before I even tried. Dimension of outside of box is utter CRAP to fit the 14.5" width that occurs between wall studs. So, buy some shims and figure out how you will obtain them in the wall, CUZ YOU WON'T DO IT EASILY. I will go so far as to say the average FIY guy won't obtain this into a wall covered in gyp board. I can build a house so I was successful stly, it looks to me to be secure enough for "normal use", but, give me 15 mins and two tools I could obtain at Walmart and I'm in it.
I bought this safe because it was the best one for the cash I found at the time. Massive steel construction, took 1 hr and lots of drywall dust to place up. Per recommendations of other people, I bought 6 hex head screws and used drill and a socket wrench to install safe to studs. Overall, I am very satisfied with the quality and free shipping from Amazon. I place some electrical tape along the inside closing edge of the door. This was enough to dampen the metal on metal sound when closing. Also, as I did not wish any noise when entering my code, I removed the small beeper from the circuit board. Lights still work. I was able to enter two various codes without problem. Instructions are vague how to enter codes, disregard reference to master code and user code. You have two codes, both have same functionality. One code requires xxxxA, the other is xxxxB. Hence the reason you have A and B on the keypad. Try out functionality of your codes and key operation of safe PRIOR to installing. As others have said, remove door to ease installation. if you do remove door, be careful not to lose the 2 ball bearings, which fall out when you remove the hinge pins. Ball bearings go at top/bottom of hinges, with hinge pins installed next. I noticed when the safe was locked, there was some play in the unblock handle which allowed slight movement/opening of the locking rods. I opened up the inside cover by removing the 4 screws. Yup, it was misadjusted and some of the screws were loose. Easy mechanism to adjust. Tightened up all the screws, checked for correct operation. This lock mechanism and electronic circuit is used in a number of safes, all from fact, Amazon has a number of vendors who sell this exact same wall safe under various names. Wish to save $30? see Harbor Freight Tools and their Bunker Hill wall safe. Look familiar? Only the names have been changed to confuse the naive.
Coming from a Sentry fire proof safe to this was like night versus a bright sunny beach day!The craftsmanship of this safe is that of a preschool/kindergarten welding class! Super thin, as if constructed with scrap metals then spray painted with melted crayons!!!From the locking mechanism, to the supposed to be digital keypad (barely works/batteries shift) to the backup safety key hole, that seems to be the only method to effectively begin this thing, it’s not even worth $60 bucks!Disappointed & now reinvesting in another quality Sentry brand safe instead.
Nice small came with batteries for the keypad and 2 little does feel like a tougher file cabinet but I search it safe enough just to hold my gun and whatever family documents and money I need to stash in es with holes in it so it can be mounted as well to the floor or wall
So I was using this safe as a hidey put for necessary documents, the body seems certainly sturdy. However, the keypad mechanism doesn't give a user confidence that someone couldn't break in. I've only rarely required to access documents or my checkbook, however the latest time I got into it, I noticed it wasn't locking. After opening the safe getting what I needed, I couldn't obtain the safe to lock closed. I left it in the normal locked position of the dial thinking maybe after ten mins it would lock up. Fortunately for me, no one would know I have this safe, and its in the attic because that was two months ago. I just went back to place my tax return copies in there and lo and behold it's still unlocked, not requiring passcode. The dial still moves the bars that would normally lock in put preventing access, but it doesn't lock in place. I have honestly used (unlocked and closed back up) this safe a handful of times, no more than 12. I am the only one who uses it, no children to mess with it, I didn't fuss with it or break it myself. Batteries are fine, I can still push the buttons, lights light up, and the code and buttons act like I'm unlocking it, but it remains unlocked to this day, awaiting something... somewhere... *spooky sounds* Honestly would like a refund but I originally purchased this a small over a year ago, so thanks for the rip off.
I just got my safe and not only did it come early, but it also came well packaged and in excellent condition. I had absolutely no problems with opening it, resetting it or setting the code. All the lights work properly. It's created from a thick metal, not cheap quality materials. There is a TON of room on the inside, more than enough for everything I need. If it stays at this price point, I will definitely be buying a second one.
I went to walmart and checked around other locations before I decided to go on here and search. The only difference is basically size and price. Most of the safe's I looked at were not any thicker than this one. So for half the price it's a amazing deal. It is doing it's job nicely and I am pleased. The pad and everything works just fine.
I liked the size and the durability of the shell. However, by possibility I discovered that the knob that opens the door can be chiseled out (not that I did) exposing a hole that would permit your to use your finger to manually begin (avoid the locking mechanism) the door. This is a major flaw and prevents real security of the Cabinet Safe. For general security (not for protection from real thieves) it provides a deterrent protection from thief of a relatively honest person.
Amazing for the price and if you are just trying to hold others' eyes off of things. But, if you are really worried about security, you may wish to invest in a heftier model - the thin metal and the lock can easily destroyed.I did not even bother with the keypad. It was very loud, and I did not understand how to set it up immediately. I simply hold using the "emergency key", which is a very primary key that bypasses the keypad entirely.
This is not the strongest most secure safe you can buy. It is sufficient for the needs I have. I attached it to my truck bed under the locking lid. Not the most secure set-up, but more than average for gun transportation.
Received my safe today! Outside box intact. The manufacturing box inside was destroyed! The safe was locked, dented, chipped and scratched. There was no instructions book. The key was show but did not work. Why would the pack a product to ship in this condition? It was obviously dropped! But they still place it in the shipping box and sent it to me!!!!!!!! Would give the company negative stars of possible but had to give one to write comment!!
We bought this safe latest summer for our 6yo son to use. He had had a blast with it and loves to stash his “valuables” inside. I’m sure it’s durable as it’s been moved all over our house and again, child tested and approved! 🤓I’m not sure I would purchase this for our private use....hmmm...I suppose if you bolted it in put it would be more secure.
Cheap is cheap.. Don't waste your money. It worked fine for a few months until the top lock stopped locking.. After contacting Paragon Lock & Safe, I was told that it was a commonly defective part and to send it back to them so they could send a ter two months, still no part. And guess what!?! The bottom locked stopped ragon's solution to the problem...? Send the other broken lock back in even though they still haven't "fixed" the I have a safe with no locks... What is the point of a safe with no locks?Just don't buy this safe unless you are using it as a decoy safe and wish Someone to be able to break into it.
It's a amazing product for the price but after a year of usage, top parts knob broke and would have a hard time opening. Then we got robbed latest night and they chop it begin like it was butter.
THIS IS THE WORST SAFE EVER. As a business owner, I too searched for deals on a double door safe for internal and external theft control. First sign was that the keys did not work properly so I had to install the batteries. After 3 days the bottom dial SIMPLY STOPPED TURNING and would not lock! I tried to fix it by twisting the knob to and fro and it began to work for a few days when during this time the top stoped working as well! I tried to take out the batteries and use the key way again to troubleshoot but the key did not work either. The bolts just dont turn in or out anymore and this safe is useless at this point. Please just dont cheap out especially when it comes to your business and buy this safe. IT IS HORRIBLE!!
Ours arrived quickly, 2 days after ordering standard shipping. We bought it for our squads to drop cash, checks and credit cards into. For our use it is fine but I don't believe it would stop a determined thief with a regular tool e largest reason it looses a star is that the drop slot is smaller than described on Amazon. Amazon states "Slot is 8.75 inch x 1.25 inch on top of safe" In actuality it is 6.0 inches by 0.5 inches. You could place cash through the slot but not a thick envelope or bundled bills (see pictures for details). The also contain instructions which are intended for this model and another but the instructions are not clear about the differences and there are a e other reason for loosing a star is the huge main compartment has no method to add shelves. You basically have to stack everything in a pile in your s:Dual use compartmentsReasonable priceDepository style without having drawers that could jamCan be mounted to the floor or wallConsDrop slot is MUCH smaller than describedNo shelves or method to install shelving in the huge safeDoors rattle and don't seal tight when lockedInstructions say you can choose a 4-6 digit code but you have to use all 6 digits with this model
The safe only worked on day one. Day two the top safe would not begin at all. The key did not work and the code did not work. The lock was just stuck shut. Day 55 the bottom safe start to obtain stuck when opening. I am afraid to place anything in it because it may not begin again.
You obtain what you pay for. If this suits your needs, it's a bargain. It's not fireproof. It will deter thieves because it is relatively heavy. A burglar would wish a dolly for this one. If you bolt it down, you'll create it difficult for the run-of-the-mill house burglar. Holes are pre-drilled: two sets in the MIDDLE horizontally at each side end on both the floor and on the back wall of the safe. Ideally, the safe design should have had four pre-drilled holes in the CORNERS of the floor. A determined thief could conceivably jerk a safe back and forth from the top and sheer the floor bolts off its moorings. Extra bolting of the back wall of the safe will further secure it. However, at least one bolt should be a strong, thick and lengthy wood screw going directly into a stud. The other can simply be a powerful anchor bolt through the sheet anding alone, I consider this model top-heavy and consequently a hint hazard for an inquisitive young kid who might be attracted to play on it after he gets tired of pushing the buttons and activating the lights on the combination key boards. If you have a young one around, you could shop it on its back until you're ready to bolt it down. You won't wish to use it in this position. Opening the massive doors to the safe is almost impossible when it's on its back. In it's regular vertical position (unbolted), it's even more of a hint hazard with either or both safe doors e bottom safe is huge enough for a very little kid or pet to fit into. Hold the children and critters away. Don't allow them play with this. Don't allow older children know the combination or have key access. Create sure that curious cat of yours doesn't sneak into it before you close the door.
Well I like that the safe I receved lets me place 1 user code and 1 master code for each door. So 2 codes te I did not obtain the one I orded though. Mine did not have the anti-fishing teethed slot as described and shown above. Mine just hade a short strate in drop slot. I orded the one with the teethed drop slot but got a difrint model.I did obtain my order faster that I thought I e safe I got came with 4 keys. 2 for the top door and to for the bottom door. Both the keys and the key-locks are numbered.I can tell you that the one I got came with instroctions that did not create a lot of sence untel I re-read them like 7 to 10 times. Thy were poorly worded and had sevrel mis-wordings and mis-spellings. And I know I can't spell very well but even I know how to type instroktions that create enough sence to where thy can be read and understould. Despite my poor spling. so this tase is not deep-enough nor wide-enough to keep a 5 bill chash box or chash can keep a 4 bill tray or money box in the bottom but the doors locking bolts obtain in the method of leting a 4 bill box or tray from fitting in the top box of the safe, and of litting more then one 4 bill chash box fit in the bottom is safe need to be like 1 to 2 inches deeper or about 5 inches is safe is not idel for a lorg buissnes but should be OK for a little buissnes that is just startting r a bussines makeing like $2,000 - $5,000 or more per-day or $10,000 - $15,000 per-week I would say definetly obtain a better safe!An for a little bussines owner I would say that I think you should test to hold only just enough cash in a safe like this one just to be-able to create change for your customers. If you are a little bussines owner that I would say that you should test to hold no-more in the safe then maybe $75 per chashyear and maybe at the most $300 for the mane chashyear for on the very busey days.
We received it and realized it was not going to stop anyone if they really wanted what was inside. After having it for about 3 months the top keypad stopped working so we were using the key and the whole mechanism stopped working, so we were mainly using the bottom which also gets stuck in the begin position constantly. We close it turn the handle and wait in hopes that it will lock but it does not. Now it only works about 20% of the time.
Having issues with top door. 1) it is uneven 2) the key lock will not let the battery to fit as it should. Door is not leveled, rubbing on the left lower corner. Battery won't fit right because of the key lock being our to ller hasn't contact ne as of yet
I bought this safe over two years ago. For the first year, I didn't have any issues. However, after a year, it started failing. First, the bottom lock wouldn't lock at all. Then the top lock had problems with the electronic pad and wouldn't stop beeping (replaced batteries, tried all various ways) so we could only use it with the key. Now the key won't even work with either compartment. Everything that's in both compartments is now locked in there and I can't obtain it out.
This is not a bank vault. If that is what you need I suggest you look ever, if you are looking for a high-quality medium duty depository safe this is the best deal for your cash then this safe is for first depository safe was a Barska but since it stopped working I decided to test the fresh Viking depository safe. Since I already own a Viking 52BLX in-wall safe and It is of amazing quality I decided to take a risk on buying their fresh depository safe. I Gambled and Won with this Viking safe! It cost a small more than the Barska safe, but the quality is SO MUCH eck out some of the differences.1. Viking’s weight is about twice what the Barska’s safe weight is. If you bang the top or sides of the Barska you can sense how much thinner, it is.2. The Viking Safe has a light to create sure you leave no deposit bags behind. The Baraka has no light.3. However, the MOST IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE IS the Viking has a long protective chute that prevent fishing out deposits. The Barska has a BIG gap that allows wires etc. to be used to pull out money. (Pictures to follow) As you can read in Barska reviews multiple people claimed cash "mystically” disappearing.4. The Viking doors are laser chop so you cannot pry it open. The Barska has a little gap that may let it to be pried open.5. The Viking keys are high security Keys that are B-rated. They are long double sided keys, looks like 2 keys in one. The Barska has cheap barrel keys that can be opened with a paper clip.6. The Viking has 25 mm looking bolts and a MUCH stronger hinges. This can prevent a hammer attack. The Baraka just has two little hinges.7. Viking comes with an LCD screen - Barska does not.8. Viking has a spring opening door. Barska requires turning of a wobbly handle to open.9. Viking has motorized opening and closing. Barska requires the cumbersome wobbly handle which is the part that ended up breaking.Oh! one latest thing, they also have a larger model for those that need more space.
The main reason I bought this safe is because company employees had somehow been stealing cash from our old depository safe.I did not know how at first because the safe seemed perfectly undamaged. It became obvious once I looked on the internet on how to steal from a depository safe. Look up mailbox sically place duct tape to a string and pull the stuff out. Our old Barska safe had such a huge gap I was able to pull things out in less than a minute. Took me awhile to obtain the string and obtain the tape but once I had it going it took forward to the Viking box. Largest reason why I bought it was because it's supposed to have the best anti-fishing design on the market. I was skeptical at first but the results were great!As soon as I got it, I did the same try I did for the Barska depository safe. Although I was able to obtain the tape and string into the safe, every time I tried to pull something out it would be yanked back in! No more fishing!The safe seems beautiful massive duty. It's not a vault by any stretch but it gets the job done. It has some nice additional features like a spring opening door.Ability to have a master code was also necessary so I can allow employees begin safe but they can never lock us out if they me other nice additional touches that I’ve found - LCD screen, motorized opening and ambient lighting. The latter is much appreciated for it does support in making sure nothing gets left behind.I’ll highly recommend buying the Viking VS-40DS depository safe. The additional cash you pay is well worth it and will be easily paid off by not having any cash stolen.
