      Rated 1 out of 5 by Starynatu from Gas strut failure Great safe to keep by the bedside unless you want to open it and be able retrieve your gun fast. Only had the gun safe for a few months and the gas strut has already failed to open. By the time I keep replacing this strut each few months I could have purchased a different safe that doesn't have this problem. 3 month warranty on a product that is supposed to be built to last!!!!!

      Rated 1 out of 5 by Rick0909 from Poor Gas Assist Opening Mechanism The safe is great except over time the gas assist cylinder that springs the door open fails. When the code is entered, the door only opens a crack and you have to try to get your finger in there to get it open. In an emergency, this is unreliable and unacceptable.

      Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed customer from Gas Strut Failure My gas strut failed after about 6 months and i never bothered to replace. It seems this is a common problem. I wish the company would replace.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by Cris32107 from Look elsewhere I've had the safe for a few months and the shock already failed not too reassuring for when it counts. Better to find out now than later. Keep looking.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by JoelOro0200 from Gas stoke issue I like the construction of the safe but unfortunately the gas stroke is failing and I have to use my finger neil to open it. The bigest problem now is that my warranty alreay expired so now i have to buy a new safe or a new stroke that will last just for several months. The save work ok for about a year before the stroke issue.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by CustomerMA from Good but electronic lock is wearing out Bought this a few years ago. Sometimes the lid is slow or will not open forcing me to use the key vs the electronic lock. I put a magnet on it as a grap handle which I use to pull the lid up after the lock disengages. After about 2 years of moderate use, the lock buttons have been wearing out. I have to press hard and hold the buttons down to get them to work. I replaced the batteries and there was no change in operation. It has been getting worse. If there was not an issue with the lock this could be 4 or 5 stars.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by Robert8146 from Reliable and quick to open I purchased to keep my 6 year old grandson's young hands off and still have fast reliable access to a home defense handgun. Plenty of room for a full size .45 and extra magazine and its a breeze to open. Buttons illuminate when you depress one to bring out of its sleep mode to make code entry easy in complete darkness. This is a very heavy duty safe that can be bolted down if desired. It is somewhat large and it is heavy and it is not very good for putting in a nightstand drawer. Mine sits on top of the nightstand and actually takes up about half of the space but it puts my gun at arms length. Two things that I wish were better and would have given a 5 star rating is that there is no way to secure the safe with a security cable if you do not wish to bolt down. That's a big deal if someone breaks in as all they have to do is carry away the safe and pry it open later. The other improvement I wish it had would be additional interior padding on the lid hinge. I have found that when I put my large frame handgun in the safe it is easy to ding the rear sight against the lid hinge. I put a couple strips of duct tape in there and it works fine but that could be an easy fix at the factory. I compared this to many other quick access safes and this seemed to be a much better unit for a much better price than its competitors. Additionally the digital code entry is a far more reliable system than the biometric fingerprint. Anyone with a fingerprint reader on a smartphone knows that it doesn't always unlock the phone on the first attempt and that's not something you want in a home defense gun safe.

      Rated 2 out of 5 by JimXeod from Good safe - poor operation This is my 3rd pistol safe. Strangely this gas strut opener failed within 4 months. I’ve replaced one on one after 18 months, and thought that was acceptable. My original has its factory strut. No issues. I don’t know who supplies the strut, but obviously something changed. I am actually very disappointed, as I was considering another. I will call customer service at some point to order another strut as right now this safe is useless. I have a magnet to open the door, but obviously this is no longer “quick access”.
