Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sjcarmich Very Pleased
I spent about 2 weeks on and off researching a fire/water proof safe for the home, and visited 3 local stores before deciding to place my order on line. The selection on line at HD was great and I found excatly the safe I was looking for, and less expensive then even Amazon! UPS delievered it on scheudle and there was no shipping damage, even for a 149 # unit. I'm glad I went with the bigger safe, with plenty of room for hanging file storage. The constuction of the safe looks very good and I like the recessed hinges on this model. The wheels and handle the safe comes with makes moving it in the house REAL EASY. Included also is a set of plugs to cover the holes in the back of the safe... when/if you remove the handle and wheels. A great deal for the price IMHO....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Unclebob Great basic safe
It does bolt to the floor. A lot of reviews says it doesn't not sure why. It is a good basic safe for different things. The wheels come off so nobody is going to role away wit your safe either. The only thing that I could find wrong with the safe is that it is deep so in the back it can get dark, and hard to see depending on the amount of light you have. That could be a problem for some people unless they have a flash light handy.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SheriBerry Horrible.
Arrived in a broken, non durable cardboard box. The whole unit looked like it was dropped on it side from the top of a 10 story building. It's made of plastic so sure enough it was all broken. It was larger than I thought, but overall the quality is just eh. If it arrived the way it was, I could only image what it would look like if it got into the wrong hands or even a fire. So disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ronster9999 Great heavy duty safe
The safe is solid (150 lbs worth) and is roughly 2 ft. square is size, making it easy to move into a ready close space. The built in dolly wheels and handle are ideal for maneuvering the safe due to its weight (the dolly is removed when you are ready to install the safe).
Setting the combination is straight forward by following the detailed instructions.
Very highly recommended to all

I bought this safe to safeguard valuables from people working in my house who might pick up jewelry and other small items and walk off with them. It also provides protection in case of a fire. A determined thief could just take the whole 150 pound safe out of my house. I like the digital combination lock which is easy to use. It's a good safe for the money and it's all I need.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LarryL So far so good... Happy with purchase
Researched for several days before deciding on the 2096DF, First Alert. UPS delivered to garage. Arrived without damage but I did keep the packing material, just in case a return is necessary later, Took some doing to get it into the house and upstairs, 150 pounds. Removed the handle and wheels and attached length of oak using the same holes. Positioned safe in closet and the oak board was securely bolted to the studs in the wall. Got this idea from an earlier review. Also, built a 24"high platform for the safe to sit on. Makes it much easier for us retired folks to get access without having to get on the floor. No problems yet, although the interior shelves are a little "iffy". Could be heavier, more sturdy, but okay for most items. Pleased with purchase and time will tell but I think all is good.

Nice and strong product. The travel wheels make it easy to move around. Remove the wheels later.
Legal size documents don't fit easily, otherwise this safe gets a 5.
