Yeah I was about to ask if it can be opened with a potato

The problem with many of these safes is that mostly they are not bolted in - or simply bolted to an MDF wardrobe shelf so 1) the safe can be opened by moving it and forcing it 2) the whole safe is stolen and opened later. They are not proper security safes but they can stop casual thieving from a household member or make it awkward for burglars. Best to bolt it in and make access to lever it out awkward - or buy a much better safe. safe should always be hidden too, behind clothing, a panel or whatever. If burgled, best not seen at all.

Got slightly more expansive on from Costco . Bolted it down to 18 mm mdf , then to walk through the side and back and it was bedded on gripfill . Then boxed it in so you can only see the door .
As mentioned the professional thieves will get in , but the local riff raff won't . Also if you have a house alarm going off there in and out in minutes so they won't attempt to take unless easy to prize away

Great find. But could not vote hot I will try again later x

Same price on Amazon, not if they price matched.

Yeah probably best to screw to wall

Cold, electronic safes are crap and easy to get into, see YouTube.

Helps to save valuable documents (passports etc.) in the event of a fire though.

Just what we'll all be needing with NIRP on the way!!

Somewhere to put your british gold sovereigns (zero CGT ;))!!

​whats bedded on gripfill mean ?

​whats bedded on gripfill mean ?

gripfill is a builders adhesive applied with a silicone gun

can confirm these do open with a few good thumps on the top and a handle "giggle" bare in mind when purchasing

​If you had a house fire, the heat generated would burn any documents into a crisp anyway, just because they are in a steel box won't prevent that.

I bought a similar safe, but key only for around £25 from screw fix a year or two ago, I would suggest that to keep something safe from burglaries.

Everyone knows these can be opened with a potato. I tried it with mine (not a potato tho).
Handy for a place to put stuff, but the lockable aspect is pointless.

Glue all your pound coins to the floor, and hide a security camera to record the chaos

Read the article:

Being Yale I'm confident this would be fairly decent.

If you are concerned, I believe there are ways you can to prevent 'potato bump' entry.

One way is to stretch the solenoid spring and another is to fit a small plate - Google it if you need instructions.

I have this safe bolted to another safe for ammunition. It does the job, although I need something a little bigger.

If its attached to a wall (which it should be) it stops it being 'bounced'. Furthermore this stops rear entry (ohhh er) to attempt to access the reset switch.

Great safe for items that you want to keep 'safe' (see what I did there) such as tickets, passports etc. Wouldn't recommend for the crown jewels obvs but ideal for keeping kids hands off stuff etc etc.

Bargain.

Agree - I've never been drawn to slam a door on my crown jewels and lock it, but I can see how others might be.

Probably why you mount it to a floor or wall

Being on a wall or floor does not stop it from being opened with a tap on the locking assembly.

More secure putting your stuff under the mattress.
A good whack on the top and these things just pop open.

Safe man!

...because no one ever looks under the mattress when searching for hidden stuff!

I reckon Schofield can break into this with ease.

Too small, I'd never fit the wife in that

Mine is guarded 24/7 by a pixie security guard who lives inside the Safe. Anyone opening it is gonna get an eye full of pixie dust.
