    Rated 2 out of 5 by Tazmanaz from Product quality has really gone down Really disappointed in the quality of these products. Bought the larger chest first, but the latch would not engage and the front latch mechanism fell off. Bought the next size down, the CHW 20101, because it looked similar to the one I bought several years ago. It’s however smaller in a critical dimension, that prevents you from easily storing folders. The rubber seal on the lid also came off the first time I closed it and was creased between the lid and base. I would a different brand if there was something similar in this price range, but there is not. I would have gladly paid a little more to get a better product. At least I get basic fire and water protection.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by smitty04 from "Inner size" dimensionally a little small. Overall, I like the unit, and obviously made the purchase. This is in addition to a small-sized safe purchased years ago. I made this purchase online at a well-known product distributor without personally seeing beforehand. I am satisfied with the product, but wish the inner size not only accommodated letters, but wish the inner width was expanded to be dimensionally adequate to fit the folders letters are often slipped in to separate by "files" without needing to bend the manila folders sideways prior to closure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveInk from Larger than I thought. The Safe was larger than I thought, I was debating the chest size verses the file cabinet size. I was impressed by how much it would hold. The Registration took longer because I wasn't sure if I had the correct serial number. The Sticker inside just shows "NO.". The Sticker should state Serial Number, I double checker the inside and outside several times to make sure I had the correct number. See attached photo. "NO." should read "Serial Number".

    Rated 5 out of 5 by thehalls from Just what we needed! Our old safe was on its last leg and we needed something new. After looking around and considering a number of different safes, we decided on this one. It was a perfect choice! Meets our needs, easy to carry, and does not take up a lot of room in our small condo.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Deacongy from Fire Safety Too many stories where a house fire steals a life time of memories. It is important to protect your hard drives of a life time of pictures, and important documents. I am not too happy with the condensation build up, so I have to open the safes for a few hours every week or so to allow them to vent. Other than that, these safes play an important part in the safety in your home.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by ALANp from Looks clean and was affordable. Like the size, price, look and door latch. My last senrty broke at the hinge when i was moving it. The old safe did not have the latch to hold the safe shut. When dropped the door opened and the hinge broke. I hope not to drop this safe but if I do, I would think the latch will hold the door shut and not compromise the structural integrity of the safe.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by ADon from Lock didn’t work I locked things inside and then was unable to unlock the safe. I was told by phone support to use WD40 on the lock and then gently tap with a hammer to get the lock to work. This worked. When I tried the lock again, the same thing happened. Support line (after being on hold for 40 minutes) told me to do the same thing and if that didn’t work, I should DESTROY the safe and send in pics and receipt for a refund! I was finally able to open it and I returned it to the place where I bought it. Very disappointing!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Fred62 from Works as advertised. I wanted a safe for wills and a backup drive. It will work fine. The letter sized wills fit on their own but with the folder they came in, don’t lie flat. Solution is to remove the folder. Not worried about locking it just making sure it is closed and does the job if there is a fire.
