To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this safe for the basic purpose of keeping documents in a secure place at home so my kids could not easily get them. I had no intention of keeping serious valuables in this safe, nor would I expect a safe at this price point to keep burglars out for long.
After a few years, the batteries in the safe went dead and I lost my keys. I went to the SentrySafe website and ordered replacement keys, which cost about half the price of the entire product. Shortly after ordering, I was informed that the replacement keys were out of stock, but after waiting nearly 2 months without delivery, I decided to see whether I could get it open myself.
As others have noted here, there are several YouTube videos showing how to open this safe, but I was surprised to find out how easy it actually was. I spent 2 minutes watching a YouTube video and after about one minute, I was able to get the safe open. Needless to say, I still intend to use this safe, as it does keep my toddlers out, but I would not keep anything of value in this thing. I also canceled my replacement key order - now that I know how easy it is to open with a coat hanger, I have no worries about the battery dying in the future.
