    Rated 3 out of 5 by Andy1 from Great safe but door struts failed... I came onto this website today to see if anyone has had the same problem and coincidentally the person to leave the latest review had his door struts fail too. So after 1 year of my purchase the struts failed so the door doesn't fully open. The door still opens upon unlocking the safe but it only cracks open about an inch or so... if any Sentry Safe representative reads this please address the issue and help me with the restoration of my safe! I do love your products!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Bryl from Be Careful: Door Struts Go Bad After Warranty Date I bought 3 of these safes for my pistols and they worked Great for 1 year. Then the door struts (what flips door open) went bad on all 3 units in about 1 1/2 years. The 1 year Warranty expired, so I have 3 useless safes now. So if you only want the safe to work for a year or so, then go for it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Nammy from Finally a great biometric / How I fixed my strut. I’ve had other biometric pistol safes before, and this beats them hands down. The quick swipe finger pad is easy to see, impossible to miss even when you are in a hurry, and quick. I’ve had it a couple of years and yes, my strut started getting weak. For a few cents I got another spring like the one on the strut. Without disassembling anything, I just wound the spring on the strut, effectively increasing the opening force. Just like new. I’m guessing the spring will last me longer than a new strut.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Gio10992 from Very heavy, I hope that means strong :) PROS: It is very heavy and I hope that means strong. The gap between door and frame is small which should make it harder to pry it open I liked how easy it was to set up the combination and the finger bio locks. The strut arm that opens the door automatically after a successful unlocking is great. It is big enough to easily fit my rather wide S&W N Frame Revolver. CONS: It only allows for 2 fingerprints. I would prefer 6 prints or at least 4. I wish it came with the thick black cutaway foam (Kaizen foam) like I have in my other BioSafe which helps protect the pistol from being jarred around and scratched. I had to use my own Kaizen foam. All in all I like this safe.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Cedarburger from Great at first... I really wanted to love this safe. I am from WI and that made me want to love them even more! These are two of four Sentry safe products we have in our house, but I may have to look for other options. I bought two (2) of these safes. Out of the box they were awesome. Opened quickly and completely. I change the batteries each 6 months to a year. The problem is the cylinder (as others have mentioned). They got really slow which does not help in an emergency situation. Now, two years later, one opens all the way but very slowly. The other opens half way, also very slowly. I am very disappointed. The cylinders on my tailgate glass lasted over 10 years with daily use!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by ATBster from Safe with Flexible Options & minor irritations The safe arrived before scheduled and on budget, so good. But two things are irritating about the setup and installation. 1. Directions regarding programming numbers are unclear. Are the only numbers available 1-4? 2. It does not appear that one can program numbers AND fingerprint. This is unclear from the directions. 3. I could only manage to program one fingerprint, not two as advertised. Again, the directions are unclear and/or lacking. This product would have received 5 stars except for the poorly written and incomplete directions.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by Victor1234 from Great Safe Until It Stops Working Safe was perfect until the device stopped working and SentrySafe refused to remedy the issue. Their only offer was a 15% coupon to buy another safe. I've owned the safe for just over two years with little use. The safe was only open less that once every two weeks and now is inoperable. Very disappointed by a product that can't last longer than two years and doesn't have a manufacture that stands behind their product. Will never purchase another sentry safe product

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Danpred216 from Door strut no longer working Just like some other reviews, the struts stop working just after the warranty period. I'm not in the market for a safe that I need to replace standard parts on each year, just after it's out of the repair window. The canned response that I got from MasterLock/SentrySafe was essentially "You need a new strut. You can't order it online, only over the phone". What a piece of garbage. It's great until it doesn't open when you need it. At least I found out now instead of in an emergency.
