    Rated 4 out of 5 by Brian D from EXCELLENT "FIRE" SAFE Bought this fire safe to protect important documents from fire. It is just the right size to store papers and file folders without folding them. Saw other reviews about problems with the key, but mine worked fine had no problem at all. Also saw some negative reviews about the lock being able to be picked. Keep in mind that this is a fire safe meant to protect contents from fire not a security safe. The only negative I would give it is, it really needs a set of handles. I was going to put it on an upper shelf, but at around 28 lbs. it would be hard for the wife to get it down. Put it on a lower floor level shelf so it can easily be slid out. Definitely recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Harl from It worked! My house burnt to the ground and my safe worked great. Car titles, Car Keys, passport and documents were in perfect condition. You would have to see it to believe it. We’ll worth the investment.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by DanielTN from Not Ergonomic The safe certainly serves its intended purpose. However, it's heavy. Being heavy and slippery, it really needs handles to pick it up and carry it. Other than that, only minor issues. The label on the inside was peeling off upon arrival. I took it off and attached it to a piece of paper since it didn't have a prayer of staying on the inside cover and I didn't want it to fall off and get stuck to papers I put in the safe! The key lock isn't a lock, more like a latch. It's not for security, it's for fire safety so don't expect top security. The file folder rails are built in but the description isn't clear. It's a very good value if all you want is a fire safe.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Tmb5374 from Broken Already! Got this as a wedding present a little less than a year ago and last night the lid fell off! Never any excessive force used - simply the normal opening and closing of lid. Extremely disappointing that we have to look for another safe already. Check the reviews on here and on Amazon before buying - this is not an isolated occurrence! With how easily this safe cracks, I would highly doubt if it works as far as being fireproof...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Tammy Carey from Would give it zero stars if possible You would think that if advertised as fire proof they would also realize that water gets sprayed to put out fires and normal people assume that it's somewhat waterproof as well. Not the case at all as I found out the hard way this past week. It was completely useless when my home was destroyed in kingsland tx flood. My one glimmer of hope was this safe and the contents but when I retrieved it yesterday it was equivalent to having my possessions in a cardboard box.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by Poco from Very Heavy & Questionable Payment Method This safe works well for my needs, however I had no idea it was so heavy. But my greatest concern is the method of payment. I don't now recall how it happened except when I went to pay for it, some credit card middle agent--don't recall their name--"grabbed" my info for payment. I had to call my credit card company and intended on cancelling my order, since your method did NOT call for my card number. There are many complaints by customers who do NOT like the method you use...and I wonder if you are even aware of this. I will likely never order from you again unless you arrange for directly using my credit card. Next time, I plan to order from Amazon or Walmart instead of Sentry. This should not be.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by FamilyMan001 from Perfect Personal Fire Safe File I've had one of these for over 20 years now, and it is a great fire safe for your most important documents, such as wills, birth certificates, passports and insurance papers, etc. etc. I just bought another one for my daughter to start filing her own personal papers. Paperwork is unfortunately a fact of life here in America, and keeping those papers safe is vital. Most are lost in fires or floods. This safe is only for fireproofing your documents. Thus, it is not as heavy as the flood proof one. If you live on a hill, this one is all you need. Holds about 20 file folders.
