    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 1 out of 5 by losangeles from plastic shell is coming apart after 2 years Bought my safe in march 2019, and after 2 years, indoors in a normal environment, no fires, no excessive heat or cold, no moves or anything, the plastic shell has extensive cracking, there are long cracks running the length of every side of the shell. I can probably peel the shell off by hand. The interior is some kind of dusty white material, like plaster, and the safe is shedding dust on the floor. Was really expecting the safe to last longer and not need replacement every couple years.

    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 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 1 out of 5 by Benben from Bad customer service I love the safe but the in-lid straps are not included. That's very confusing since many websites show pictures with it I tried to order them so that I can use my sagfe at its full capacity. Storing papers in the main compartment and passeports/hard drive in the lid was the goal. Unfortunately they don't ship the straps to Canada. Contacted customer service, they confirmed they shipped a pair of straps 5 weeks ago. Since that no news, sent them 3 emails to inquire about at least a tracking number, they never returned my emails. This is becoming ridiculous and very frustrating. I'm returning my safe just for that. Yes it's a bit ridiculous but this is very disappointing.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by anonymous78735 from Good While It Lasted I got this for my important documents and liked that it fit file folders to keep everything organized. It was the perfect size to fit in a small space. However, after just a few months, the lock became stuck and wouldn’t push up to unlatch. Nothing was stuck and even tried when it was empty… the lock was still stuck and we couldn’t open it. Currently, I was able to take out my documents but now it’s stuck shut and the pop latch won’t open. I’ve had this less than a year and opened it maybe once a month. Having this break so early on was a waste of money especially since the entire mechanism is plastic.

    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.
