      Stephen Atchley It's a cut-out to make room for the end of the piston. It's covered when the lid is closed. Thank you for watching.

    Thanks for the video! This helped me get mine open which I've not opened in over 10 years. I thought I had it set with a set of 2 buttons followed by another set of 2 buttons but after seeing you press single buttons to open yours, I realized my mistake and opened it on the first try! My Ruger Security Six is free at last...

      There are only 1080 total combinations for the simplex lock, you cold try one at a time or go from a list found on the internet.
      It would only take an hour or less to try enough to open the lock, something to consider if the person you're trying to keep out has the time.
      A kid with even only 2 minutes a day could open it.
      I have a Fort Knox version that I use for my home defense pistol at night because it opens every time unlike the electronic safes. I have a 3 year old I don't want to find the keys to open it so this is perfect.
      My suggestion is to use a more secure safe for kids over 7 for anything besides bedside storage at night.

        Mark Matthews, you owe John Dough an apology. Please go to the Amsec website and find the Simplex lock instructions under Resources.

        The Amsec instructions say very clearly that "Note: a particular button can be pushed only once in establishing a new combination.", which answers your question, 'Where does John Dough get his (correct) information?'....he read the instructions. He is correct.

        That's not true, because you can use multiple buttons at the same time (2,3,4, or 5 at once) AND use any amount of digits/combo buttons; essentially making the number of combinations infinite......

        Where do you get your information? What is the point of your incorrect assertion?

        I literally just bought one today, and you sir, are wrong!

        John Dough, If you have children with this much time on their hands and the curiosity to get into a gun safe which holds guess what? (A gun) Then you need to have better discipline and awareness of firearms for them. And definitely a better gun safe!

      Can you fit 2 layers of pistols in this with a layer of foam between them?

        Charlie Long. I'm not a fan of the Vline box but the Fort Knox is very similar to the AmSec in my video. It's very similar in build quality, lock mechanism, capacity, etc. Both the AmSec and Fort Knox are equal in my opinion.

        Critical Dreamer Thanks for responding so quickly! Another question I have is have you compared this unit with the Vline Brute or the Fort Knox Pistol Box? I'm going to buy a box like this and have seemed to narrow my search down to these 3.

      • Critical Dreamer

        Charlie Long Possibly but you'd probably have to remove the factory foam and switich it with much thinner foam which would give less protection if using as a portable unit. My opinion is that it works best for 1 pistol and a few accessories. Thank you for watching!

      Great review. Where did you purchase the safe? How do I make sure I get the newest model? Thanks.

        Hi BravoBJJ. Thank you! I purchased 2 of them: The first one was ordered on Amazon. It turned out to be the older-style. The second was ordered through a local distributor and was the newer-style. You can find it on Amazon if you search the Amsec PS1210HD. Also, before shooting the video I contacted the manufacturer directly and spoke to technical support. Basically, whomever is selling these would most likely sell the "older" versions they have in stock in order to clear out their inventory. I suppose the only way to be sure which you'd be getting is to contact/email the seller and ask and/or request they send the "newer" if they actually have it in stock. I will also say that in both cases of ordering these, they did take about 2 months before I received each one. They were ordered about 6 months apart. Maybe now they ship faster but that's another question you can ask the seller before making a purchase. Regardless, whether it's the older or newer model, either one is perfectly fine in my opinion. Thank you again!

      To be clear, the Sales Tax exemption law for gun safes and trigger locks is State-specific. Please check your State gun laws to determine whether or not it applies to the State in which you live.

        $238.00 as of around mid-2016. It's certainly not inexpensive, but it makes up for it in the "peace of mind" category. Thanks for watching!

        Critical Dreamer great review Steve. What is the cost? I just bought a liberty handgun safe which I like but don't love.
