Enormous mildew problems

" Papers, coins and other collectables ruined by all the accumulated moisture. Leaving the door open at times is a stupid suggestion on their part and this product should not be sold by any reputable company. Very disappointed in Costco, for continuing to sell this sentry safe. "

Don't buy

Cons: unlocks if battery dead., instructions locked inside safe. can't get., very poor sentrysafe customer service.
" Just bought and couldn't open. Spent 20 mins on hold with SentrySafe customer service and 10 minutes trying to convince them that it was locked. By luck found an online manual which said there was a factory screw to remove. Auugh! Locked safe and removed a battery for a test. Safe opened. I won't trust with any secure documents and am returning as soon as possible. "

Fire safe not a security safe!

" I have a smaller version of this exact safe (same mechanisms) and in the past year there have been no surprises. It's great to have for the peace of mind and a convenient way to ensure the documents don't get lost, either around the house or if unthinkable happens.
That said, this is NOT a security safe, it's a fire safe to protect contents from fire and water. I can see a couple of pretty easy ways to get into this safe (knocking off the handle, cutting off the hinge rod ends, prying it open), so use it for documents, not valuables! "

An excellent safe box

" I liked this safe. It's easy to use, just read instructions carefully before installation. It's very good for keeping papers, documents, etc. I want to recommend this item. "

Piece of junk!!!

Cons: plastic lock parts
" Uses plastic internal lock parts that fail. Lucky for me the door was open and I was able to get it repaired. Then the internal release mechanism failed and will not release the lock shafts and now the door will not open. have to get a locksmith to open. Might try the hammer method mentioned by other reviewer. "

Not very Secure

" On a recent burgulary it took the thief less than 4 minutes to open safe by striking handle and breaking internal mechanism.
This was done with a 12 oz. carpenter's hammer (a Stanley - good hammer) which he had used for entry through the windows. This time was determined by security camera. I hope it would fare better in a fire but I would not use for valubles.
