    Rated 1 out of 5 by MA59 from Mechanically Weak in handle/latch - Broken I purchased the LH4 in July 2016 from Target. This week the handle/latch broke and the safe failed closed (locked). I called Sentry and they told me how to get the safe open (making it permanently non-operational). They also told me the design hadn't changed since I bought this safe. Once I got it open, and after further inspection, I noticed the interior portion of the broken handle/latch is made out of plastic (picture). It engages with a metal latch so I don't understand why Sentry didn't design it with a metal handle/latch, since it is mechanically stressed when the safe is opened. It also fails closed meaning when the handle breaks, you can't get it open, the safe is locked. It should fail open so at least you could get the contents out. We had not used this safe that often, maybe open once a month. It was out of the one year warranty. Sentry told me they couldn't help me further.

    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 4 out of 5 by Turk from Good product This safe is a good buy but in this year I noticed it has developed a crack on the outer skin of the safe I only had it for three years because of this I cannot give it a five star review

    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 1 out of 5 by Megan from BROKEN I would not recommend this product. The bottom half of the locking part has come completely off. I can push it back on, but it's loose and will just fall off again. I had this happen just after one year of use.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by Frank Worsham from Good for documents I never owned one of these before, previously relied on a safety deposit box. It seems to be adequately fire resistant. It doesn't hold as much as I first thought it would - maybe about 5 or 6 inches of paper including hanging folders. And it is heavy due to fireproofing materials. It could be improved by making the handles deeper. They are hard to grip and when the the file box is full the weight makes the grip feel kind of risky for my old arms. The box isn't that secure - the lock could easily be pried open but I didn't intend to use it as a safe.
