The box is quite a bit larger than I expected it to be. Rather than just a camera and maybe the Zune and some paperwork I expected to fit in there, there's room for a small video camera that we weren't sure he could take and that still only ended up filling it halfway.
The vault attaches via a bracket at the back and is designed to adapt to any size loft; I wasn't sure it would work with the kind we were required to use, which was a tubular metal post, but it did fine. We ended up having to install it resting on the desk, though. Because of the loft frame, the vault tended to spin around unless it was braced on a flat surface when attached.
The weight and thickness of the vault material is easily better than any standard locking box, although it obviously doesn't match the standards of a fire safe, which it isn't intended to be. The lock would be the weakest area of the product, if I had to think hard and pick one. It's rather simplistic; the four-number twist combination lock isn't exactly James Bond material, but it does the job.
This really is a terrific idea, security-wise, when it comes to protecting all of the expensive stuff you're sending into dorms, which aren't exactly the safest places to leave things lying around. This is a sturdy, roomy product that I think works.
It works perfectly with this lock and overall this is an excellent safe box and I would highly recommend it to everyone going off to College.
Overall: 5/5 stars
This one beats them all. I don't like combination locks, so I got a MasterLock with a key. They've included very small bolts to plug up the holes in the back if you don't want to use the attachment feature. I don't use the attachment feature, because I like to move it around from time to time. I'm glad they included those small bolts, plus little rubber caps, so the bolts don't scratch up the valuable content inside the safe. There's also a small rubber mat at the bottom of the safe to prevent scratching of your objects inside.
The hinge in the back is solid. Again, with Sentry Safe and the others, it's easy to wobble or even SLIDE OUT the hinge, making those safes a joke! You would need a sledge hammer to get into this one! And of course a sledge hammer would damage the contents.
The thickness of the steel is just fine considering the price of this product. It's not flimsy at all like one reviewer suggested. It's about twice the thickness of the steel that would be used to contract a toaster.
My only concern is quality control. If they cheapen it up by reducing the thickness of the steel, the hinge, or taking out the rubber caps, rubber mat, or the small bolts for those who don't want to use this permanently attached to something, my review would seriously go down to like 2 stars. It's just about right for what it is. And again, once you replace the included lock with a MasterLock, you are good to go and have on your hands a 5-star product!
