The lock seems kind of pointless. I don't think it would deter a thief, but I don't care about that - I just want the fire-resistant and waterproof features.
I was surprised how large it is when I received it. It perfectly holds 8.5 x 11 papers in it, but on the outside it is rather big. I don't mind the size, but other people might. Despite its size, it isn't too heavy, but it is heavy enough to keep my toddler from moving it around and playing with it.
Overall, it is a great product.
The only grief I have with it, is that it does not have a handle to carry it around. Maybe, because of its relatively high weight, it is not meant to be carried around, but I sure would like to have that opportunity anyway ...
Other than that, it's craftsmanship is acceptable and I expect a long use out of it.
A few things that should be mentioned
-Some complain about the seal and that you have to push down to lock it. My safe had a paper tab hanging on the safe that instructed specifically to push down to engage the lock to create the water/fireproof seal.
-It's a safe that is protected from fire and water, not burglary rated. Unless you create a metal bracket around it and bolt it to the floor, it can be stolen. But that is not what you buy this for. You get this to keep your things safe from a fire or flood.
-Due to the mobility of the safe. I don't recommend locking up a firearm either. (There's a warning label inside against this as well). Only a matter of time elsewhere until a thief gets it open.
The lock and awkward shape (no handle, just some grip points) makes things just less easy to steal. Find a place you like and just leave it there. The barrel lock gives me a little more security after seeing youtube videos of other safes with a standard key being broken into with a coin or a quick rap to the mechanism with a hammer. Feels sturdy when it's locked down.
While researching these safes, I thought it's interesting that after a fire, the material melts around the compartment to seal in your contents and you usually have to pry it all apart after the fire department does their job.
Do I write a review after having bought, received, filled, closed, opened, closed again, opened, closed.....I've no doubt you get the idea. I've found the price of this "SentrySafe H2300" to be very reasonable. Delivery of the safe was quick and I registered it immediately. The directions, which are included with the "SentrySafe", specifically state to open one must press down on the topside and press the latch mechanism. I did so repeatedly and I'm happy to report I, at least, didn't encounter any problems. And relatively little force was required to perform the simple maneuver. The unit came with two keys but not with a handle which, frankly, I didn't expect as the photo clearly indicates there is none. Darn thing weighs a ton as it is so why make life more difficult. The device is now filled with my meager valuables and external hard drives and sitting in the back of a closet not bothering anyone. Just as it should be. I've only had the product for a short while and, thankfully, haven't had any fire or flooding. I think of the unit as insurance, only considerably less expensive. I write a lot of reviews at Amazon.com and in the event of a problem with this unit I will certainly amend this review. However, for the time being, the "SentrySafe H2300" is just as I expected it to be, and it seems to function as promised. This company hires 440 local workers in Rochester N.Y. I think that's also important.
As everyone else has said, the latching/locking mechanism is cantankerous. I'm glad it won't open easily in a fire - say if the floor collapses and it falls. But I was concerned it might be hard to remember how to open it in an emergency. So I wrote the following instructions on the safe:
- Push down on the front top of the lid
- Turn the key (up = locked)
- Push down hard on the middle of the lid
- Release red latch
Pushing down at the right spot at the right time does make it all work much better, but it's not obvious, and if you only open the safe occasionally, you will probably forget how unless you leave yourself clear instructions.
