UPDATE: After just having it a year and 2 months the combination won't stay locked!!!! It feels like it's locked but if you turn the black knob left then right it easily pops open! No combination needs to be entered!!! Glad i found this out before someone got in and either got hurt or stole something. Keep an eye on your locking mechanism it may be like mine and fail right after 1 year. I treat this thing really well and only open it and close it about 2 times a day on average. In the time i had it no one tried to break in so that didn't cause the damage just crappy lock. I thought the arm would fail first but it still works perfectly and helps open it and keeps it open when let go. I hope mine is a fluke but check yours. Everything seams the same except if you do that to the knob it easily opens where it didn't use to. The buttons still work if i enter my code.....the lock still moves....but the lock knob DOESN'T!!!! Now i have to talk to fort knox directly since it's past the amazon sellers time range....which i understand they are just the seller's not the maker of it. I wouldn't have bought this if i would have known only a year and a few months later the lock would fail.......now to contact fort knox and see what they say.
Very heavy duty and tough construction. Super easy to set you lock combination. Just remember not to use the same two buttons for a 4 pin code. I didnt read the directions close enough and tried to push the 2 buttons one on each side at the same time (you CAN press two button at once) then i pushed the far left button and far right button once. So in other words I just used 2 buttons in a in different order. THAT is a big no no. Im glad i tried close combo's to see if it would work and i was able to make it work. (As stated that was MY fault it tells you to not use the same 2 buttons.) Long story short i love this safe and i feel my possessions are safe from the above average thief. The lid does make a little clanking noise when its closed and it hits the side. No big deal i will get some cloth or something to stop the metal on metal contact. All in all 5 stars! (Will update or make a new review if i find any problems)
UPDATE: No problems to report. I just want to let people know after about 1 year I still love this safe. I have not put any fabric on door edge so it still has a bit of a clank sound, BUT the metal is not damaged or paint chipped. Thankfully no one has tried to break in yet so i can't say anything about that. The one thing that would be nice is if Fort Knox would space the buttons a bit farther apart so people with large mits like mine could fit each finger on one button. I guess if I want one like that they sell them. Everything is still working including the door strut. Every day since i had this i would guess the average amount of times i open this would be once a day. Over all still love it, no regrets forking up the money. Still 5 stars!
Please be aware that the true width of this safe is maybe 1/4"-1/2" larger than stated, which I believe is due to the width of the base being used rather than the lid, which fits over the base. When i measured the space the safe was to fit into, I didn't take this into account, so I'm going to need to sand it down a bit so that the lid can open and shut freely.
The interior foam is firm enough to keep whatever is placed there from moving around, while being soft enough that it won't mar any finishes. I also really like the 4 holes drilled in the base, if you bought some screws and washers this safe could be anchored very nicely.
Interior-wise this safe easily can swallow up a Glock 34 with a Surefire X400 attached and an extra magazine, so any size 1911 or standard frame revolver would be fine. It's probably too small for a Desert Eagle or an extra large framed revolver, but I can't imagine anyone wanting to keep a firearm like that at their bedside unless bear attacks are a thing.
One note on security - the combinations are not endless and could be guessed given enough time, so I would not use this as a replacement for a real safe. I would also recommend that you change the combination at regular intervals, especially if you have children in the house. Speaking of that, while this safe is great for preventing access from children or household members, it is not meant to prevent theft. Given a crowbar and 20 minutes you could easily break the safe open, so again, this is not a replacement for a real safe. The best use case for this is next to your bed, for quick emergency access, at which this excels.
