      Rated 1 out of 5 by Another disappointed cust from It has a PLASTIC lock that broke within hours Nice heavy box, but the lock is made of PLASTIC. Look at the pictures. Within hours of getting this the plastic lock got out of alignment and now does not lock at all. Besides the digital lock, you can open it with a key. That key has 1 pin. Look at your home door key. all those notches relate to the number of pins in the lock - usually 5 or 6 pins. This lock has 1 pin. What a change from the old superbowl ads standing up to a bullet. Now if the OWNER turns the knob, the plastic lock stays unlocked. How far this company has fallen!

      Rated 1 out of 5 by b c p from plastic, with no repair options I've had this model beyond the short 90 day warranty period and the locking mechanism broke. I now find the bolt housing is made of thin plastic and customer service can do nothing ... nothing! One of the selling points was that this was a totally metal unit, it's not!

      Rated 1 out of 5 by Eitan from Just an expensive box that could be opened The locking mechanism is made of plastic and apparently anyone can break it with some force, so there is no point in the security. Just buying an expensive box that could be opened.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by AAB_RWC18 from Good Safe for college students We purchased this safe for my son who is in his freshman year of college. He just moved into his dorm. He said it was very easy to set up and secure without drilling holes.
