Yale Outdoor Combination Key Safe - Wilko (Wilkinson) - £19.99

Found 26th Jan 2014
I needed an outside key safe and had looked at the popular Masterlock one until I found the You Tube video showing you how to swiftly pick the lock.

This one seems to get good reviews* and will hold more than one key and Wilko seem to be offering the best price with £8 off at the moment.

"A Yale combination key access, allows access for nominated users and has a resetable combination lock. Weather resistant, for use inside or outside"

Their own brand one is down to £12.99 but doesn't look half as good..

Not sure about this one, but I feel for people who use the Masterlock ones on show by their front doors...

You would not be insured if someone broke into one and got into your house with the key that was inside. Youtube shows how this can be done in seconds.



Take care and do your research guys. Personally, I would question if I needed one in the first place.

I plan to place mine discretely and not by the front door. Large numbers of people use them for holiday cottages and local authorities install similar ones for carers to gain access.

In most cases they don't invalidate your insurance.

Personally i think these are a bad idea. As soon as a criminal sees one he knows exactly where the keys are, just smash it off the wall with a hammer and pry-bar then take it home to open it, then come back with the keys.

properly installed it would take a lot of hits with a hammer to remove, so very noisy. and again if fitted properly a pry bar would struggle, but even so only an idiot would then return later having told the world their intentions. often if fitted well location wise neither a hammer or a bar can get good access.
easier to break in the old fashioned way, IE through a window etc, than smash one of these off.

It is a lot easier to just open with the combination is seconds (have a youtube search if you want to find out)

I suppose it depends on the options aI your property but I wouldn't put it somewhere obviously visible. And I woudn't put the front door keys in it. I'd put a shed key in it and hide the front door key in the junk in the shed. That mght sound like a faff but given it'll probably not be used more than a couple of times in its lifetime the extra few mins of effort getting the key far outweigh the inconvenience of not having a key at all.

That's the cheaper Masterlock one I mentioned in the OP not this Yale one.
