Customer Reviews:

  • Great safe for fire and water protection
    I wouldn't recommend use for theft protection as it uses a tubular key and it is very light (35 lbs) unless well hidden....more info
  • Peace of mind
    This safe is exactly as advertised: sturdy, easy to use, and secure. It fits 9 x 12 inch envelopes as well. For the price, there's no better option out there. I looked....more info
  • Satisfactory purchase
    I wanted a small, fireproof chest in which to store some keepsakes and the Sentry chest "filled the bill". Entire purchase experience was very good....more info
  • Lock stopped working
    I bought this a few months ago but haven't had the chance to use it until now so it sat in my office not being touched for a few months.

    Today is the day that I finally needed to use it and the keys were still in the lock so I go to press the button and it doesnt open. So I take the keys out and put it back in, turn it a few times... still nothing. Maybe I am not pressing the button hard enough! So I try until my fingers hurt then got a hammer to push against the button... No luck. So I get a screw driver and use the hammer and start pounding my way in... few minutes later the front part of the lock busted off and I saw the hook that stopped working, unlatched it and opened it up.

    One thing I learned a while ago, if you're going to invest in something, do it the right way and buy something with quality. I have had to learn this lesson too many times and unfortunately it is still trying to stick in my head....more info

  • Two Safety Issues & Content Limitations
    This is a very heavy chest; there are no rubber feet to prevent it from sliding off anything above floor level. It slides too easily for a heavy chest; I had to work on the floor to fill it with the contents for fear I or my pets would be injured. The safe also has no safety lock for the top when opened; watch your hands and fingers. Don't let your pets or children anywhere near this safe when the top is opened and when using it on anything other than the floor. Be very careful.

    To my disappointment, this safe cannot be used to store photographs, negatives, or anything other than paper, which is the main reason I purchased it. The humidity level of the inside of this safe can get high, thus ruining photographs, negatives, stamps, etc.

    Sentry told me that photographs can be stored in this safe if they are first put into an airtight container, such as Tupperware or Rubbermaid "DISHWASHER SAFE" container products ONLY to protect them from the humidity. I do not trust such plastics from melting inside over the papers and photographs if the fire lasts longer or burns hotter than the standard to which the safe was designed. (Sentry says that their media safe will protect photographs.)

    Do not put anything plastic or metal in this safe. Take the plastic sleeves off any paper documents before putting them in this safe.

    Sentry's Customer Service told me that the inside temperature of this safe can get up to 350 degrees Farenheit during a fire; paper burns at 451 degrees--hence the paper is supposedly protected from burning. Sentry also told me that the inside temperature of their media safe will not exceed 125 degrees Farenheit, thus protecting items that burn or melt at a lower temperature.

    I gave it only three stars because of the safety issues and lack of information regarding what products it protects and doesn't protect. It may deserve five stars for actual performace during a fire providing that you only put into the safe paper products and nothing else.

    The Sentry web site and Amazon web sites do not provide sufficient information to determine which safe to buy.

    I believe that the Brinks products may have similar limitations....more info
