once again: "I hope I never need it for it's intended use"
I title the review as I have because I've reviewed a number of other products whose stated purpose is such that, if I were using it for that, chances are my house would be on fire.
WIth that said, let's look at this safe. It's solid and heavy (20 pounds), with a good-sized handle. Since the standard photos in the product description show it holding things like passports and letters, I decided to show you what else it can hold :-)

all seriousness, this looks like it whould do the job. However, keep in mind the safes in this price range seem to be rated for ~30 minutes protection from extreme heat, and this one is not really rated for water protection from full immersion (the manual is not exactly specific on this point, but singles out the model 1101 (this safe) as the only one that's *not* rated as "Independant testing verifies that the interior remains dry when completely submerged for up to 24 hours." )
Take that for what you will. What it means to me is that when deciding where this safe is going to go, I will put it somewhere that it's not somewhere where the water from extinguishing the fire will put it underwater for any length of time.
