I wouldn't know about the Netto one, hopefully as you say it is more secure - maybe it is not a solenoid one. I haven't voted cold anyway, as I doubt it is any less secure than those costing several times the price.

I was going to buy an electronic safe a few years ago, but someone told me how easy they were to open. Apparently its a common problem with small electronic safes that use a solenoid as a catch - thumping them hard enough on the top or bumping the safe on the floor makes the solenoid catch bounce allowing you to turn the handle if you get the timing right.

There's a web page here that explains the issue - http://www.kgbsecurity.com.au/safe_bounce.html

And there's another example here:- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhWQF14Jb9M

How heavy are these and could someone of about an average build carry one of these out of a window without much trouble?

thats what I was thinking .... you could probably just carry it.... :whistling:
I thought safes were found behind picture frames in the wall...

Keep it under the floorboards if you are not silly enough to have laminate and most safes are good enough, this one included.
#10
I was silly enough to have a couple of these safes bolted to the wall/floor in a bedroom cupboard. I was burgled and they ripped them out with crowbars - and carried them off. Unless you're going to concrete one into the floor, don't bother, because it won't stop them.

The other drawback of having a safe is you tend to put everything valuable in there --- and when they take it, you lose everything in one go! Mine had passport, driving license, car keys, birth cert, credit cards, cheque books and lots of other stuff - camera, video camera etc. An absolute nightmare.

So just put your valuables in a plastic bag and hide them under the floorboards, in the loft, behind the bath panel ---- in fact anywhere but in a safe that can be found.

These things should be sold with a huge warning sticker - Don't Keep Anything You Can't Afford Lose In This Safe :p

These safes are a waste of space. The vast majority of them can be opened with a tap from a mallet. The override lock normally just needs to be forced with a screwdriver. The solenoid can often be operated using a battery after smashing off the front panel. The bolts and/or hinge are often weak and a screwdriver is often enough to pop the door. The supplied kit to bolt it to the wall isn't strong enough to prevent it being pulled off in under a minute. They're small and light enough to carry away. They aren't fire rated. They won't reduce your insurance.

If you have enough valuable stuff to protect, get a key operated safe that requires two people to carry and is rated so that your insurance will drop.

It's not, you can safe bounce the Netto one, just as easier, if not easer.

If you want to keep the remote away from your wife or hide something from your kids this is fine!

I did once consider getting a cheapo safe like this and filling it with something really heavy like bricks or concrete and fixing the door so it can't be opened, in the hope that if I had a visit from burglars, they'd waste their time carting away my heavy safe and spend less time looking for my valuables. :)

I was thinking that! get one of these, bolt it down nice and safe, and put my valuables next to it in a bin bag...

I thought I was the only one who hid things behind the bath panel! :roll:

Thanks for the videos. Shall be modifying my home safe very shortly.
#21
The safe at Netto's is different to the ones shown in the two videos. My farther has bought one and unlike the one's in the videos the front doesn't shake and the handle is different.

But at £16.99 i very much doubt it's the safest of safes. So if you plan on storing an item with a lot of value you are probably better off purchasing a different one.
#22
If I was going to buy a safe I'd pay a bit more and go for a fireproof one so that I could keep things like insurance documents safely inside! This is god for the money but if you've got stuff worth putting into a safe I'd have thought you would want fire protection too.
