Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Glenzo fingerprint opening not reliable with this safe
Maybe I just got a lemon, but the biometric lock didn't work well at all. I put in 7 or 8 versions of my right index fingerprint, orienting my finger slightly different each time, as per the safe's instructions. The lock would only open about one out of every 20 or so tries. Not reliable enough for emergency use.
Other than the fact that the safe would seldom open via fingerprint, it was a well made unit. Opening it with a key worked well. Good fit & finish. Nice padding inside. Wish it would open reliably. I returned mine to the local Home Depot. (That's a nice option to have. It would have been a hassle to mail it back.)

I bought a Lockstate safe a while back, and when I needed a briefcase to store valuables I decided to see if Lockstate made a security briefcase. I didn’t find a briefcase, but what I did find was the portable safe case instead. I decided to purchase it because I needed something both small and secure for several business trips I’d be taking via car. I was a little concerned about the biometric lock, but after 6 months I have not had a problem with it. What’s been great about the biometric system is that I have been able to share access to the case with others while not having to worry about losing keys, sharing keys, or keeping them secure. Overall I am very pleased with this case due to the usability and size.

wish it was a bit lighter. Very good size and shape and fairly accurate to open.
