        There's a video out on YouTube showing a locksmith (Mr. Locksmith) opening an electronic Sentry-Safe in seconds using an earth magnet.

          Buy the safe as a dummy ruse while you hide the goods in a fire safe box some place else. I put two old 50lb dumbbells in mine for the comedy. The surveillance video of someone trying to steal it will be worth the cost!

                  The joke is the hinge is on the outside all you got to do is cut that off and pry it open and im in your safe

                  These feel sturdy and look nice, but check out this vid on this safe. bolt it down in a hiding spot if you decide to buy one

                    I am wondering about that handle in the event of a fire. It is plastic and as you said leaves something to be desired. How would the owner be able to access if the handle and maybe the dial are warped/unusable due to fire damage?

                      This is how you access it if the handle doesn't work

                                  good for fire protection, about it. if you keep a gun in it make sure you put a few dessicants in there. too much moisture otherwise.

                                      I hate to be telling you all this my first time out I bought one of them too I still have it their good decent safe if nothing else for safety you can keep your home defense hand guns in to keep them out of the wrong hands I seen a guy on YouTube cut one open with a cheap high-speed doublecut saw harbor freight in less than 10 minutes they're actually very thin metal for the most part on the tops and sides probably door two and the bottom he cut it on the sides in about five minutes he had it completely cut in half and then hit it a couple times with a sledgehammer because it has a concrete core underneath the very thin metal to make it feel more substantial and give it more weight truthfully I would go with the amsec floor safe that you concrete in the floor they have a removable door so when you open it you could take the door completely off to get in there and rummage around through all your stuff when you lock it back up you can also remove the dial

                                              Anchor I believe it can from the inside out there's places in the inside of the floor were 4 bolts can go through or mind there is anyway I assume they're all like that for sentry make sure you check before you buy but if you could afford it get it good floor safe that has to be concrete in the floor amsec makes some really good stuff they make the floor safes that are concreted into the floor that all the gas stations and convenience stores stores use for over 50 years they also make cabinet safes that sit on the floor I believe they could be bolted into the floor

                                            I just purchased this model at Wal-Mart and it was a open box item without the Manuel. What's the manufacturers combo on the back of the Manuel? I'm wondering if it will open it.

                                                      Those are not real safes. they can be pried open by a lot of people in under 30 seconds with just household garage tools. there are videos on YouTube of them doing it. how can you praise it as being a good safe when they show it is junk??????

Follow the instructions carefully, grease the bolts with lithium grease regularly and leave the dampness collecting packets inside the safe. Do this and you will have the product serve you for years.

                                                              This is a piece of crap.. It worked for about a month (although I have the digital version). Then good luck getting it to open. When you contact them they will tell you to giggle the handle and push up and down on the door, eventually the door opens after 20 or so tries. They will not remedy it and you will be stuck with a safe that you hope will open in a hurry if you need it to.  DO NOT BUY---you have been warned.

I bought one of these so called safes and the locking mechanism is made of plastic. The handle is plastic, the tumblers are plastic, even the wedge to keep the safe locked is plastic. As for those 4 steel bolts, there made of cheap cast metal and will snap with a decent impact. If you want a burglary rated safe, buy a burglary rated safe, this thing ain't it. It's a poor excuse for a safe at best.
