Totally useless product with very little security. In fact, a child can open it in a few seconds

That’s on the basis that it’s not bolted down, most people would secure it.

Watch the video again. In the first bit, he clearly explains the usual trick of poking a strip of cut up coke/soft drink can metal down the side of the door as a shim if the safe is still bolted to something.

Fair point, I watched it on mute. Seemed strange to give a demonstration when it wasn’t bolted to anything.

Does that apply to any digital safe as the one in the video is different to this Yale one?
At £10.50, anyone expecting something more than a detterent or an incumberance to any nefarity would be considered foolish.

To be fair, its enough to make someone think... Oh sod that. Which is worth £10.50.

Kids would also love one. Can't fault it. Heat.

The vast majority (if not all) of these cheapie "electronic safes" are made in China and use much the same design - although some may have minor cosmetic changes like changing the position of the key pad.

As someone else has said, you get what you pay for. If you have anything especially valuable, you would probably be better off hiding it somewhere instead of using one of these "safes".

Word to the wise for anyone going on holiday soon. Most electronic hotel safes usually have a default "engineers access code" of either 5 or 6 zeros (allowing hotel staff to unlock room safes when guests have accidentally forgotten their own combinations once they've had a few too many beers).

If you take any reasonable valuables on holiday, it's usually best advice to put them in the hotel's safe or use a hotel safety deposit box (both usually free if you ask at reception).

HTH
Last year, the battery died on a cheap safe I keep in the garage and I couldn't find the manual key. Here's a photo I took after coaxing it to open with a hammer and chisel for 20 seconds...

Absolutely right. It's a bag-o-sheeeeeite toy.
Homebase really are the worse retailer around

Ordered two , then got a call saying they don’t have them , more like staff wanted them instead

Avoid this place as this has happened so many times to me ...there a joke
