    Rated 3 out of 5 by JohnB from Customer Service I unfortunately did not read the reviews before I purchased...I too had the handle break. The handle design (plastic) needs a better solution. Here's where Sentry saved me as a customer. I contacted customer service (Jessica) and have to say that was an extremely pleasant process. She took all of my information, made me no promises and then let me know the very next day that Sentry would stand behind their product. I'm hopeful the replacement safe has a better handle option. We'll see...either way, I am very impressed with their willingness to keep a customer happy and stand behind their brand!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Jayman382 from Excellent Love the safe it's everything I wanted, it has the built in rails for the file dividers, handles to carry easy, I feel safe and secure with this. I do wish that the handles weren't so shallow because it makes it a little hard to grip, and the inside only fits letter size paper (no folders because that little bit of extra length is too big), lastly the lever feels a little too delicate and it feels like it could break if I use it when it's accidentally locked.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Molly2020 from Strong safe This safe is the perfect size for my documents. I read the product description prior to ordering it and it said it is fire proof and waterproof yet the mini manual that came with it says fire resistant. I did call sentry and was told it’s FireProof. So not sure what it is. I bought it to be fireproof. It’s very roomy. Holds everything

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Lee S from Read poor reviews Wanted to purchase product but read bad reviews. Reviews indicated that the interior release latch brakes, as it is plastic and they could not get into safe. Several reviews indicated, they had to use a crow bar to try and pry open. If fire proof item, why are there plastic mechanisms anyway?. Will not purchase this brand or product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by nevermind from junk do not buy this product. my latch broke in under 2 years. using my key. i then placed two screwdrivers into the safe and was able to break into my own safe in under 10 minutes. not knowing what to do. now i do. yet its junk. buy another brand. the lock worked great. the company should have 3 different locks instead of the latch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by nanniebarb from Heavy, strong It is a great size to keep confidential information (marriage and birth certificates, insurance information, copies of wills, CD's of home furnishings, etc.) in. I was disappointed that it was not safe to keep medication in. Excellent for other uses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by UB Mike from Feels good, but haven't had a fire Very strong, very secure, very heavy. I would suspect this safe would have not problem surviving a blaze. I had a smaller version and love the fact this one is designed to handle file folders. Helps me organize and find what I need quickly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Snarty from Just What We Needed My wife and I needed a safe and secure location to store some of our documents. We found just what we needed in the SentrySafe-FHW40100. It holds everything that we wanted in this safe, and we know it is protected against fire and water.
