Good little safe with little problems
on March 10, 2010
A good, solid item with a good, coated cable to secure this mini-safe in place. There are a few minor problems, however. The combination lock leaces a bit to be desired. The combination does not stay in place as the wheels rotate a bit too freely. This makes it hard to keep "unlocked" when open - and it has to be on the correct combination to relock. It also makes it hard to get the combo lined up on all three numbers to get open. The metal on the rear of the lock - inside the safe - is not very good quality, and the tab you must press up and over to reset the combination was not molded precisely and caused it to snap off when setting the combination. I was able to use a pocket knife to move the broken tab over and set the lock's combination. It is not really a big deal, as I don't plan to change the combination frequently - if ever again. That said, it would have been going back, if I were not determined to fix things myself. The finish is good. The cable is good quality, but I wish they had designed a better way to secure it inside the safe, so it would not pop out each time the safe is opened - there is just a loop on the end when they could have placed a different terminus device that could snap in place and not pop out. Despite these few issues, it is a good, little safe and just right to secure items under the seat in a car or similar location.
