open this small box and have access to my home - no thanks

I've always been torn with these things that yes, they're fantastic if you lock yourself out or you need to give someone access to your house while you're away; however someone could get to your key with an angle grinder and let themselves in. Can't see an insurance company paying out as you've effectively given the burglar a key.

Your better of thinking of a cunning place to hide your keys imo.

My dear old gran used to hide hers in a crack on the side of the house behind a drain pipe. Came in use 4/5 a year.

I think you can come up with a good hiding spot, use your imagination

Heat for price

I leave my key under a plantpot in a NEIGHBOURS garden. If the key is found they would have no idea which house it was for

Like this idea. Will give it some thought.
The other option would be to buy something like this

I'd be a lot happier knowing it was police approved.

Put the key in this THEN hide it under a plant pot - sorted

I just did an instant chat with my insurance company (LV). I was surprised to find that they did cover the use of key safes. Guess each insurance company will be different though.

if your going to use a angle grinder then you might as well drill the bloody lock lol

im sure this is not insurance approved so if you did get done over your likely to get nothing

Was gonna say a similar type of thing, if your gonna go to the effort of making noise/sparks to get in someone's key box then you may aswel just cut the lock catch aha

I've got one of these and they are great. They are heavy and if you can get into it before someone notices a strange person buggering about in your garden, you deserve itX)
Mine's tucked out of the way, so you'd have to know where to look. I'm sure insurance companies are happier with this than the doormat or plant pot?

Just don't tell the insurance company about it, if you get robbed and they want to know how the thief gained access just say you don't know. Its not your job to prove how a crime was committed

Got one at my Gran's house for when she had a carer (she's since passed away.)
Could take it out quite easily I'm sure - a decent hammer and crowbar. But then you can get in to most doors etc like this and the neighbours there would be just as likely to notice either.

Certainly consider it somewhere a bit hidden away.
And yes - maybe both you and your neighbour get one, but have each other's keys in them as above :).

could be useful to keep your keys in inside the house. That way if someone gets in through a small window they cant use the door to get out with any large items.

Nice video, showing the safe and how to open if you forget the code :- youtube.com/wat…qSo

Even though post 7 said they had rung their insurer, who said it would be covered...

would it not be easy to smash/crowbar off the wall then take away to cut open, after all its only as strong as the fixings/wall material

I think people are being a little unfair, firstly, last time I watched a show where they spoke to burglars they were mostly on about gaining access without being noticed, so that is the angle grinder out, if they want to start sledge hammering this off the wall it is hardly quiet, I think from what we are told most burglaries are oppurtunist ones where people have left windows or doors undone...

What I do agree with though is you are really better off just finding a good hiding place, as unless they turn up with metal detectors I dont think many theifs are going to spend hours turning your garden upside down hoping they find a key...

and remember the best prevention is just being friendly with your neighbours and letting them know if you are going on holiday etc...

oh and DONT post it on Facebook FFS, the amount of people that do that is nuts

On the whole I agree. The only nagging doubt that I have is that if somehow they DO find the key you've stashed somewhere, there's no way your insurance company are going to cover you for having the entire contents of your house cleared.

I'm going to buy one, then put it on the wall, but it will be always empty. I'd love a burglar to spend ages breaking in to it, only to find it was empty.

I use one of these, but not this make as it has had some negative reviews regarding people being locked out. Mine is hidden behind a bush, and would be very hard to find, plus you do have a bit more security than just hiding your keys somewhere. This unit has stopped my son phoning me to say he is going to be late home and could I leave the keys under the mat, which I never liked doing. These safes are very useful, but do research and ensure you get a reliable unit and find a good hiding place to install it.

Not hammer resistant If you know how to use a hammer!

Yikes! That's even easier than picking it, although picking it would be worse as a thief could keep or copy the key and get in and help himself as often as he likes and I might not notice as long as he doesn't steal anything I'd immediately miss.

About the only thing it is good for is to lock up keys indoors as Spectral suggested.

A lot of policies exclude claims where there is no forced entry.

I have one of these with the keys to the garden gate and shed in it. The house key is in the garden shed and I'd appreciate some help to find it.

I just moved into a house that had one on the outside, really wanted to see what was in it (probably empty) only just found videos online to do it.

Anyway, we removed it with hammer in a few seconds.

It would be usually used with Care Home companies which have to have a access to the residents home 24hr....

Thanks melted. Saved myself wasting £11.99.
