I recently locked myself out of my place. I had previously put a spare house key in the "secure it" in my truck. I keep a spare truck key in my wallet so getting to the truck was no problem. the problem was that i did not put a spare safe key on my key ring, so instead of sitting outside in my truck for 10 hours waiting for the apartment complex folks to show up to work, or paying maybe a hundred to get into my place, i decided to break into my safe.
i tried to use my leatherman to cut the cable but that did not work out well, i stripped the plastic coating and cut a few strands but not good enough. i only got halfway through the cable. i tried to turn the lock with the flathead portion of the screwdriver. i shredded the interior parts of the lock, but it would not budge. i then used my leatherman to break into the side along the seam. i used the flathead screwdriver part to pry a side open. i attacked for several minutes but the leatherman could only do but so much. however i was able to flex the metal enough to create a gap. then i got the idea to use my vehicle's crowbar. i worked for some time more. the interior side piece (a tack(?) welded piece of metal that happens to be on both sides) eventually popped loose, but remained vertical inside the safe so i could not insert the crowbar all the way across. eventually i popped the safe open and got my house keys.
this all took me 45 minutes.
--the lock portion held up under my attack using a flathead
--the interior sidewalls prevented me from getting deeper inside with the crowbar
--needs a thicker cable (i went to Lowes and made one using laminated 1/8 in cable, i think this one is 3/32nd).
--needs better welding.Read more ›
The previous reviewer who left a single star review stated that this would be easy to break in to. I seriously doubt it. If you secure the cable to something secure in your car, it would take a pair of bolt cutters to remove it - don't know many car thieves carrying those around. Chances are your average car thief will have a screw driver to pry things open and remove your stereo. This is 21 gauge steel people, you'd have to have a vice and multiple long screwdrivers or mini-crowbars to pry this sucker open. For an average car thief, this is too much work and would take to long for a smash and grab. Make sure you attach it to something secure!
Love the product, can't wait for my second to arrive!
Here's a little more info about the safe:
A handgun storage safe that fits in a bag, under your vehicle seat or in a briefcase. Memory foam holds gun securely in place. Meets TSA airline firearm guidelines. Constructed of heavy-duty 21-gauge steel. Comes with a 1,500-lb. test security cable.
The only "wish list" I could think of for this unit are:
1 - A push-button lock that requires a key to open, but just pushing in the spring-loaded lock to secure the box. Not a biggie.
2 - A security cable slot on the other side of the box. As supplied, the cable fits in a slot on one side of the box. There is no slot if you want to run the cable in through the other side.
3 - Some quick & dirty instructions on how to secure the box to your vehicle, for the users who need them. No instructions were provided.
As to this thing being easy to break into, I doubt it. Today, I used a Dremel tool with abrasive cutting disc to cut a cable slot in the other side of the box. It was NOT easy going. On either of the long sides of the box is an extra sheet of thick steel (approx 0.05-0.07" thick). When added to the already significant wall thickness, this was not simple to cut through, even with the Dremel tool. This steel reinforcement would make it MUCH harder to twist or pry the box open. Yes, if you cut the aircraft cable (?portable Dremel tool with cutting disc?), take the box home, you could chop open the hinge side of the box with your Dremel, but that's much more work than your average crack-head thief wants to hassle with.
For a fairly small amount of money, you can secure firearms in your vehicle much better than just stashing them in the flimsy glove box.
