The 2096DF features concealed, pry-resistant hinges to deter thieves (click to enlarge).
Designed to keep your documents and other valuables safe in the event of a fire, the 2096DF waterproof fire safe has been classified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) to withstand external temperatures of 1,700 degrees F for one hour while maintaining an internal temperature of less than 350 degrees F.
Waterproof Seal to Keep Out Moisture
The safe comes equipped with a waterproof seal along the opening that keeps your valuables dry--even when the chest is fully submerged. This is great for protecting your documents if there's a fire and emergency sprinklers are triggered. The seal also enables the safe to float during a flood, keeping it up out of the water and making it easy to locate.
Store Electronic Media and Other Valuables
Along with important documents, you can use the 2096DF to safeguard computer discs, USB flash drives, and other data storage devices. The safe has been independently verified to protect electronic media such as memory drives, CDs, DVDs, and external hard drives in a fire.
Digital Lock and Emergency Override Key
The 2096DF comes equipped with a programmable digital lock and keypad to keep your belongings secure. The lock is simple to set up and operate. Once you insert the batteries, you can program the safe to open using any three- to eight-digit code that you like. For greater security, opening the safe requires you to enter the code and insert one of the two standard keys included with the safe. Red, yellow, and green LEDs guide you through the process.
To prevent unauthorized entry, the 2096DF is designed to lock the keypad if incorrect codes are entered multiple times. Emergency override keys enable you to open the safe without entering a code--ensuring that you have access to your valuables, even if the keypad has been locked or the batteries have run out.
Resin Construction and Pry-Resistant Hinges
Made of durable resin, this safe sports four solid-steel locking door bolts and patented, concealed, pry-resistant Delta hinges to deter thieves. Two adjustable, removable shelves allow you to maximize the space inside the safe, while the hanging key rack and door pocket let you organize your belongings. Handy Hauler wheels and a lift-up handle make the safe easy to transport.
The 2096DF measures 24.13 by 17.63 by 23.38 inches (H x W x D) and weighs 145 pounds. On the inside, it measures 19.69 by 13.50 by 13.88 inches and has a capacity of 2.1 cubic feet.

-the box it came in was damaged, and upon unpacking we noticed that the safe had been dropped on its right rear top corner. The safe is dented, but still functions. Would contemplate a return but the box fell apart when taking the safe out. At least the safe works!
-there is an "activation" pin on the inside of the safe. There's a sticker on the activation pin that you can't read unless you remove the activation pin. The sticker reads something like ' don't remove the activation pin until you've entered the code, etc. Nice that you have to remove the pin to read the sticker that says don't remove the pin.
-the manual shows 4 locking bolts for this safe; however the safe only has 2 locking bolts
Con: awful instructions. Comes with (nearly) dead batteries that makes the safe behave strangely.
As mentioned by user Steel6, the proper instructions for setting the passcode are:
1. Safe open, bolts extended, door handle in down position.
2. Open plastic cover.
3. Press reset button in door.
4. Enter new passcode on keypad followed by #.
5. Enter new passcode again followed by #.
6. Green light = passcode changed successfully.
The instruction manual has #2 and #3 reversed.
Additionally, if the battery gets too low, correct entry of the passcode will result in both the red and green indicator lights turning on, then off. The instruction manual says the red light (only) should flash every two seconds if the battery is low. Replacing the batteries (after using your override key) restores the digital lock functionality.
The batteries that came with my safe lasted less than a month (I only opened/closed the safe a few times). New batteries have lasted much longer; given the number of complaints seen here about the digital lock not working, I suspect the manufacturer must not have paid much attention to the quality assurance of the included batteries.
This safe is what is claims to be. It comes on wheels which decreases security but sure makes it easy to move. It is solid and seems quite secure and comes with easy to understand instructions. The access panel is easy to use and the door easy to open and close. My only disappointment is that while the interior is roomy it is not very compartmentalized so as to allow for increased separation and organization.
However, all in all I'm satisfied with the purchase.
After helping unload this heavy load and unpackaging, I found a considerable crack and dent in the front corner of the door. Odd, because the packaging did not indicate anything that could cause this kind of damage to something built like a tank. So, I submitted a return and replacement. A week later, and unloading the replacement, AND loading the return, I open up the packaging and find this one has damage to the rear top corner. Again, no damage to the packaging. Tired of loading, unloading, unpacking, & repacking, I contacted Amazon and agreed to accept it despite the cosmetic damage. I was given a $100 refund for my trouble and for the damage.
Yesterday, 20 days later, Amazon sends me an ad that this same safe is now priced $70 less than my original purchase. Basically, it can now be purchased brand new for $30 more than I have invested in my second beat up safe. Amazon will not do anything more for me on this purchase.
Beware...open the package before your delivery man leaves. If it's damaged, get a refund...not a replacement.
