    Rated 2 out of 5 by Mirek from Hard to open The chest's major flaw is the issues with opening it. The keypad is unreliable, and there is no overriding mechanism. Pulling up the latch and pressing the top are difficult to do, and often fail. You must sit on top of the chest and fool around with the latch to open the chest> I called Sentry Safe, had to wait 40 min to get advice, and was told the issue was common with the product. It does look fire and water proof. I have three other SentrySafe product, and am satisfied with them. This one has a disappointing locking mechanism

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Unable to open safe. I am unable to open my safe and when calling Customer Service was told to 'place 10 to 15 pounds on the lid for 30 minutes because oftentimes the seal expands making it difficult to open ". I did so to no avail. What if I needed to retrieve my passports from the safe to leave on a trip??!! [ The other sdvice I was given was: IF I WAS ABLE TO OPEN THE SAFE, I COULD CUT OUT/REMOVE THE SEAL AND THUS MAKE IT EASIER TO OPEN, BUT THEN THE SAFE WOULD NO LONGER BE WATERPROOF ...What kind of product is THAT??!! ] JUNK??!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by jaykay from Opening safe extremely difficult I put documents in teh safe and took me ages to open it again. I phoned teh customer service department and was told to lean on the lid whilst entering the code. The explanation was that sometimes the plastic expands and extra pressure is needed. I cannot risk being unable to retrieve important documentation. I retuned it to the supplier for a refund. Furthermore ther is no customer service or help in the UK.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Johnny D from Difficult to open First off I do really like the safe. Size, security, appearance all very nice. Easy to program, change battery, etc... The only complaint I would have is the button to undo the latch sticks and at first was difficult to press down. It seems to be getting better. Overall pleased so far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by MikeInOhio from First Glance Was looking for a document safe with keypad, this model seemed the best fit. There were several negative comments about the latching system on Amazon. The latching system works correctly but it does feel flimsy and you need to press the far right side of the lever to open. Also found it helpful to enter the code and wait for the lock to open before closing, it just makes it easier. Otherwise it's a decent product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Joakin from DO NOT buy the FHW40300 model If you want something easy to use and fancy, do not waste you money on the FHW40300 model. First, it comes without a battery. Second the manual only indicates the use of a 9 volt alkaline battery; to use it, you need to have some knowledge only batteries. Lastly, the safe appears fancy in pictures. The active safe is poorly made with gaps all over.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by CobraJ96 from Heavy box with small side hand holds This is our third box. The other two were smaller keyed boxes. My wife wanted a file sized box. She also wanted one with a combination lock. This box has no Key lock over ride. As our other boxes we expect this one to last for several years. I do wish the side hand holds were a little deeper or that a top mounted handle was there.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by Peter69 from Fireproof box that looks the part Looks tough and hopefully fireproof should the need arise (hopefully never).Release handle is clunky, required strong hands to open. Would be nice if manufacturer provided anchor points to fix down. Although it's primary function is fire & flood protection, the lightest of pry bars would open it should your local burglar visit.
