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.

Top Customer Reviews
The typical humidity where I live is 16% outside, about 30% inside, which is low, but seriously, the cement is this safe is so damp (and never dries out) that you can't store anything made of paper in it unless you put the paper in a damn ziplock inside of ANOTHER ziplock, with the openings facing the opposite direction! I.e., you have to put cash or other paper items in a ziplock, close it, fold it, put it in another ziplock with the first ziplock's opening facing the bottom of the second bag. Ridiculous! If you don't they will absorb moisture, might mildew, and will start to smell. The moisture will also make your signatures bleed a bit.
This safe is really only good for storing gold, diamonds, etc, in plastic, maybe either in a plastic bag, box, or tray. You can't even store jewelry in a paper or silk box! You definitely CANNOT store guns, cameras, watches, binoculars, electronics of any type, etc. in it because they will corrode/rust/fog up.
I bought the safe because it is fireproof due to the wet cement in the walls, but I have a sprinkler system, so I should have just bought a gun safe or thin-walled, big lockbox. I have to air this safe out maybe once a month for a few days, which utterly ruins the point of a safe! I keep a hygrometer in it to check the humidity, and man, it's sometimes as high as 85%! Absurd!
I've had no problems with the locks (electronic and manual), but seriously, IT'S NOT WORTH THE HASSLE. I'm going to get rid of it and get the biggest lockbox I can find, with actual shelves in it. This thing is small because so much space is taken up with the absurd concrete walls.
The reason I bought this was for the electronic combination which is now USELESS!
Save yourself the aggravation of having to replace batteries and or not having the lecturing a work at all a d buy a regular combination safe!
==> I should have pointed out that I gave this safe five stars, even though my review might have sounded negative. The safe works fine, although I've been lucky enough not to test it against fire or flood. I bought this particular model, as opposed to one that is just fireproof, because if figured if there were a fire the basement would be flooded by the fire hoses.
Be prepared to haul this thing around when you get it. It was left on my doorstep during a snowstorm, and I was alone in the house (not that my wife would have been any help). It was too big for my hand truck, so I wound up building a ramp to get it into the house. I'd intended to put it in the basement, but there was no way it was going to go down the steps. Fortunately I was able to slide it down the hall by putting it on a towel, and I found a place to stash it. There it sits.
This isn't a fault of the safe or the delivery people (although I wish they'd at least rung the doorbell). After all, what good would a safe be if you could simply pick it up and walk away with it?
One problem I did encounter is that it got musty smelling after a month or two. Apparently humidity can get in but can't get out. I put some RidEx in it, and that took care of it.
I wanted to buy this safe, but what is the sense of having a safe that can be carried away without much effort? I mean 150 lbs isn't light by any means, but it isn't very heavy either. This safe slides across carpet fairly easily and can be carried by 2 guys without much strain. One guy carrying a bag of concrete has more weight than he would sharing the weight of this safe. After not finding anything that I could secure to the wall, that compared in price/quality, I decided to buy it anyway, figuring I would use my carpenter skills to devise a way to keep it in place.
It was delivered by an actual delivery company and carried to my desired location in the house. No dents, scratches, or even box damage. First thing I did was take off the 4 brackets that hold the wheels and handle. After taking out the 24 screws that held these brackets, I noticed the 24 holes in the back of the safe.(There are plastic plugs included to fill these holes) Since the brackets are wrapped around the poles that hold the handle and wheels, it makes for an easy template. I took the brackets and laid them over 2 pieces of Oak that were wider than the safe(one to cross horizontally over the top set of brackets and one to cross the bottom) and by sticking a pencil thorugh the bracket holes, matched the pattern of the holes. I drilled out those holes with a drillbit. I wasn't able to use the screws that were used in the brackets because they were too short, so I used screws long enough, with slightly bigger threads. I lined up my holes in the wood to the holes in the safe and screwed it together. Then I backed the safe up to the wall and lined it up with studs on both sides(which is why I used wood wider than the safe). Predrilled 2 holes, lined up with the studs, on each side of both pieces of wood(8 holes total) and then used a countersink bit on those holes so the screws I secure into the wall will sink below the surface of the wood.(if using bolts, you will need a forstner bit to allow the bolt head to sink below the surface of the wood). Once the safe was secured to the wall, I filled in the tops of the holes with putty, stained the wood and I was done. Now a thief with a lot of time and tools, could still notice the putty hole, dig out the putty, take out the screws and be off, but I like my chances. I should note that I also used square head screws as it is much rare that a thief would have the means to unscrew them(unless you're in canada.
Other than that, I can't comment on any long term performance of the safe, or electronic lock, itself as I havent had it long. I will say the directions worked just fine for me to program a new code except the first time I tried, I screwed it up and had to wait 15 minutes to try again(the directions say you have 3 chances to screw up before it cuts you off for 15 minutes).
Anyway, I'm not recommending you do what I did, but I thought it was worth sharing.
One last thing, the brackets are secured to the poles that hold the wheels and handle, but they do spin around the poles and move up and down. I would recommend if anyone tries this, that they reattach the brackets to the safe so that they are lined up on the pole where they need to be so your template is accurate. When they are mounted on the safe, take a marker or pencil and mark the poles where the brackets line up. Then when you take the brackets back off, you will know that they are lined up where they need to be.
