Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jonh88 Great key box
This thing is great. I have it on my back door. I was able to program it with 2 diffrent codes that each child remembers.. Further it can program for 1 tome access, which had let us go enjoy the water park when our heating & cooling company came out to do maitnace. Finally our family came to town and I used another feature to program the box with a code I gave the family. And set it do that the day after they left the code expired. This thing is great, many program options. Very easy to use. This had made it so I do not have to worry about my kids losing keys. Very very cool box. Thinking of geting another one to mount out on my shed. It even comes with a mount for such type of also application.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Good idea bad product.
This lock box was exactly what I needed for my business. I read all the reviews and there were more than a few bad ones talking about malfunctioning and not working. I choose to ignore the reviews and buy it anyway. It set it up and it worked perfect, or so I thought. The lock button on the side releases the key box without using the combo. It looked like it was working but it was just an expensive place to put a key unsecured. It does not lock. I did not have the time to send it back but thanks to numerous emails asking me to do a review I can at least tell people to stay away from this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greg Works like a charm!
After reading through reviews here, I very reluctantly purchased this unit when on sale. I don't know where all of the negative reviews are coming from -- especially the ones about the unit opening without a digital code. The unit works exactly as I would have expected and opens only with 1) a key, 2) the master code, or 3) any of the temporary codes you've already programmed. Battery life so far seems fine -- just be sure to fully charge the battery prior to programming/operating. I'd buy it again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HausZwei Great for Realtors/contractors
This is a handy dandy tool. I like it better than other lock boxes because you can have multiple numbers. Remodeling a house and sometimes you need to send a contractor over to get a quote, but don't like giving out the same code. You can give them one and change it later without having to change the main code. Also, can have a 1 time code as well. bought 2 the first worked great, the second sticks just a little. I think the battery life will be fine, but works best for 3-6 month projects.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PET37 Short Battery Life
Setup was rather straightforward but that's where the good turned to BAD. After many repeated tries the best I could get out of a full charge was 3 weeks not 8 months as advertised. Even several emails to Ryobi only got me a wishy washy excuse like your battery is old so I got a new battery with same results.This is not good for someone who needs access once a month because it will DOA. Totally useless for me. Plus after every recharge you need to reset the date and time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Elektriker flawed design. Stopped working after a week.
The lock box looks impressive and pretty sturdy, even though many parts are out of plastic.
The box has one master code and allows for ten contractor codes. In addition one can setup temporary one time codes. Unfortunately, any code that opens the key chamber also allows the removal of the lock box from whatever it was attached to.
Operation is cumbersome: the rubber key pad is not very responsive, one has to type slowly. The locking mechanism doesn't actually open the key compartment. There is a mechanical release button on the side of the box to do that.
After using the box at one of my construction sites for about a week I discovered that the release button would open the compartment regardless of whether the electronic lock was engaged or not.
Not much security here. I hope I can use the rechargeable 4v battery for something else.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by theislands too large too complicated
great price, was almost a give-a-way. I am a Realtor. Lockbox seems very durable but very large but actual key storage area very small and was a challenge to set the codes. Not suited for residential use but since it seems to be built like a tank, may be great for construction sites and multilple codes/users. Decided to return the two I bought. Offered to other agents for $10 but they had same comments as mine about the boxes and suggested I return them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hibbi Lock Box, excellent purchase
I got tired of losing my key to my shed and finally purchased this lock box and never have to worry about it again. It was very easy to program and use, so much so my kids can use it as well. No more losing my key and the lock box has been through it's first winter and summer and is heading into the second winter and looks very nice. I was worried it would get damaged in the elements but it has stood the test of mother nature.
