The construction and locking system on these is not bad and would be problematic for a burglar who may only have a few minutes. Also ideal for situations where you might have a light fingered occupant of the same household etc. Where they come unstuck is they are small and light enough to be taken away from a home and opened later with more time. I've seen loads of these ripped out, often bolted (or just placed) inside wardrobes, cupboards often just bolted to mdf or simple rawl plugs to a wall. Your safe is better not seen at all. The cheap £30/40 quid keypad safes are rubbish. Can be opened in seconds if you know what to do. The safe here is a good step up, looks a bargain if you need one.

Picked up 3 last week for our vans from my local. I thought the £40 price was standard.
These are usually £100+ - amazon was selling them for £80 a couple of months ago and that posting went hot.

B&Q also have some safes reduced.

Did you get it from Home base?
HOT!

Thanks theblind - I missed out on the amazon £80 deal.

I'd seen a couple of safes at Homebase recently but one was still showing full price and a discounted one was still dearer than elsewhere. Took some pics but for some reason didn't check the more expensive one. Managed to retrieve them from google photo's bin to find that the originally priced one matched the original price in your picture....and the barcode did indeed match the amazon deal. Just shot down to homebase and bagged one for £42.50.

This safe is better quality than the cheap ones you often see.

Glad you managed to get one
The YSB/250/EB1 (not as good) is also reduced to £50
Will it not lock if I put my £2,005 life savings in it?

comes with a potato


Claims to have motorised bolts, so should be Potato and jolt proof:- yale.co.uk/en/…fe/


It's solenoid operated locks that are junk.

Nah, that will be fine 'cause you'll only have £1962.50 left after buying the safe.

Ah, thanks. It looks very similar to one I saw opened very easily.
What about the Costco ones what's best way to bolt a safe down so it can't be removed or take a lot of effort

1. Put it somewhere where it's not easy to find
2. Secure it to a strong surface with sensible fixtures that cannot be undone from outside the safe.
3. If possible put it where access to one or more sides of the safe is constrained to make it harder for it to be physically pried from its installation location.
wasn't this safe but at homebase last year when they first got informed about the bunings deal they had the larger firemasetr safes greatly reduced, but watch on youtube showed defeat with a rare earth magnet very easy... now you obviously have to have one , so it would still deter the junkie smash and grab, but literally seconds with readily available equipment and more to the point quietly too. quite shocking that the manufacturers are allowed to produce such expensive safes when they are so easily defeatable..
