When I posted this some time ago, it received a lot of hostility. Hopefully people will read the description properly before they make their mind up on how they are voting. Personally I think this is a great price, and it has my Hot vote.

We have one of these in the back garden well out of sight... very very handy if you're stuck outside in the rain without a key, well worth it at double this price!

I see these a lot on my travels, tbh I wouldnt let my parents have them. The landlords place them right by the front door, and are only held up by a few screws and rawl plugs. Obviously, I havent tried, but I reckon it would be easy to rip them completely off the wall with a crowbar and smash them to gain access. Not the best of ideas.

good idea -- but toolbank same price excl del

They're pretty solid, on or off the wall. You may as well just smash a window I would suggest.

These really shouldn't be used in obvious places: It's too easy to knock it off the wall which would take one swift blow. The you can take it away and cut it open somewhere you can make as much noise as you like before returning with the keys.

A good idea, but actually any covert hiding place (like a key buried in a plant pot) is probably just as effective for occaisonal "emergency" use. I wouldn't suggest a key under the doormat though! :whistling:

Also check with your insurance company as your policy may not cover theft if someone just lets themselves into your house with a set of keys (regardless of how they obtained them).

these key safes are used by local authorities nationwide and are very secure even in high crime areas they are seldom targeted by thieves as they are very difficult to gain entry to

if it were metal I might have thought about it but plastic? seems to be asking for trouble.

I'm NOT an Insurance expert, but I would imagine someone gaining access to your property with a Key, which they took from this box, by one of the methods mentioned above would invalidate any claim..............Just a thought.

Saying that, if that was not a problem, looks like a good price.

Can you set your own code on the lock?

I don't know.... I personally don't think the product is a great idea. Crowbar it off, take it somewhere quiet, grind it open, easy quiet entry to the house, bye bye electrical goods et al and probably no insurance to cover it. Would probably be much safer and easier to leave a spare key with a trustworthy neighbour, or even a friend. If you have to go and get the key from them or they have to drop it off, the increibly small amount of times you would need it means this method is a lot safer...

Probably is a good price for what it is, but would you buy a chocolate fireguard just because it is cheap?

Guy's seriously... if someone is going to go to the hassle of crowbarring it off a wall, and then taking it away to open it, before returning to gain access, they may as welljust break a small window at the back/side of the house and let themselves in.
I have a similar one attatched to my house, and it has got me/the wife out of a mess a couple of times in the past.

I think it would be alot easier to take it away and come back, than risk breaking a "small window" that is in the right place to aid gaining access??

Fair comment, but if it's double glazing that's quite hard to break. It really is no trouble to crowbar that off, take it into the bake of a van go somewhere quiet and use a petrol angle grinder to open it. would take all of 5 mins to gain an easy entry and exit to the property.

I would use this, but to keep a spare garage key. I'd then keep a house key hidden in the garage.

Everything's a risk, but when you've got teenagers who often forget their keys I'd rather they had some fallback method of getting in the house.

These are great! They're used everywhere in Florida and since we returned been meaning to get one. I would think there'd be more chance of a burglar getting in by traditional means than opening one of these things - if it were that easy to break into them, then I'm sure half the florida homes would be burgled regularly. Heat added.

Council fits these in Edinburgh to old folks homes to ensure access can be gained. Pretty sold metal box and seems securely attached. I would imagine a bit of effort to get access to one of these means the usual case of the bad guys picking somewhere easier (unless you are an obvious and worthwhile target of course)

I bought one and bolted it to the brickwork near the front door. As said before a thief isn't going to go to the trouble of getting it off the wall, taking it away and gaining access to it with an angle grinder, they are after a quick in and out.

great deal.... excellent reviews from users on Amazon. Have ordered 2 for aged relatives. Many thanks :-D

I think they're an OK idea if you can keep them well hidden, but you may as well keep a tiny key well hidden.

Depending on where you stay I suppose, but in the country I'd rather hide my key somewhere than have this.
Once this is found, could likely be easily removed and taken away and opened elsewhere.
Thief then returns (maybe the next day if you don't know the box is missing) and helps himself.

Good item if used sensibly. Wouldn't put it anywhere visible or put main house keys in it (that's for 3rd party access, eg if elderly unable to attend door).

Hot price.

I'm not sure about anyone else here but if I came back home and found the safe "missing" as a thief had taken it to break into I'd change my locks :oops:

Unless of course you are suggesting a thief comes to your house. steals the safe, takes it down the road... breaks into it and immediately returns. To be honest if I were a thief I'd just pick a different house... :whistling:

Think they're a good idea so H+R coming your way

A lot of people seem to be keen for theives to take these away and break into them...Personally, in my experience, theives arent that smart, and they are opportunistic. For starters I would guess that a theif "taking this away to break into" would be worried that the homeowner would notice it missing, call the police, and the police would be watching the house.

Besides, unless you are a footballer (or other multi-millionaire), where the breakin is worth a 2 day event, a theif isnt going to bother; They are going to move onto the next house. It is like alarm systems; typically if there are two houses, one with a flashing box, and one with no box...a theif will pick the one with no alarm box.

I would however suggest NOT hiding these in too concealed a place. That way if you did notice it missing one day, you know to get the locks changed.

As mentioned these have been used for years in many countries; some in quite remote areas. and I have never heard reports of them being unsafe. We used to slip our son in through an open window when we got locked out, but as he is getting bigger now, I will order one of these.

Heat added.

Great - perfect for storing the garage keys in, hidden behind the bin shed. Like another poster said, we can then store a house key safely away in the garage. I looked at these yesterday on Amazon and they were £18, so this is a great deal.

WASTE of time this BOX!... the picture with the box nx to the door is really asking for trouble. p-e-t-e is right... if someone gets in your house with the key is like you let then open the door and steal things. it will void ur home insurance.

For shed i would recommend a combination lock if u r likely to forget the keys.... works out cheaper!

FREE solution.....store the spare key under the door mat:whistling: lol u know the easiest and the most unsecure hiding place is the most secured place to hide... the scum never think the easy way! LMAO:-D

Seems to be priced at £22.50 now.

there's lots of talk about these being potentially risky due to burglars but nobody has commented that one of these has ever been compromised. Old folk are usually in at all times so surely burglars wouldn't target their homes and I agree burglaries at 'normal' homes are opportunistic and not over planned so unlikely that they would take the trouble and risk to angle grind one of these. I personally would have one of these although there are 3 of us who carry house keys and we have family locally so losing keys would not be an issue for us (it has never happened tho).

In stock?

I work for the police and I have never taken a report of a burglary where they have gained access through taking a key safe off the wall first. i can't believe people think that someone is going to break in to your house would be so tooled up to have an angle grinder in the back of a van some where, the fact that would have to break it of the wall first would draw some attention, then the noise of the van and then the angle grinder, its all too much.

Thief's are more likely to break in to your house if you have upvc door with what is called a euro profile lock, i won't say what they use, but they will be in your house or the time old tradition of just kicking your door in.

A lot of older folk have these and they are life savers let me tell you, we get a lot of assistance calls and it saves having to to kick the door in to gain access if they have one of these.

Votes hot as good price

I bet all those local authorities who reportedly have them use the same combination code on all of them.

These things are used a lot for holiday rental homes etc.
In florida we didnt pick up a key for the villa we got a code !
then one of these things were on the wall of the villa.
good idea but I wouldnt say its for your own house full of valuables:whistling:

ive got myself the mammoth task of trying to get one of these off my wood framed door thanks to the previous owner leaving it attached without telling me the code. got the job of checking each combination - 1-9999 to get the retched thing off

Insurance expert are you? No, obviously not. This will generally not void your house insurance (though feel free to actually check with your particular provider). These are recognised, accredited secure devices - the do not pose any more of a security risk than having windows and doors on your house!
