Would be nice if the combination dial and handle were steel, but that seems to be out of the question at this price point. Works great, and the key adds a second level of security if that is helpful to you (if locked, you need both the combo AND the key to open, or you can leave "unlocked" so just the combo is needed). Also, I really wish it has a second set of bolts going into the frame on the hinge side. That would increase security greatly. I believe if someone could saw through the hinges the safe would come open. If the bolts were on both sides of the door then sawing off the hingle would not allow the door to open.

Big enough for most of us to store documents, jewls and cash. This is NOT a gunsafe, just in case you thought to buy it for your firearms. Its heavy enough not be shlepped out easily and you can bolt it to the floor or wall for added security. Also, the dial has much more longivity versus electronic locks that very often fail or break. There is a key which is NOT for override, so you have an additional level of safety.

After some research I settled on this model Sentry Safe for the combination lock and key lock system.
They also included a bolt down kit which was easily installed into concrete. I added some marine silicone to the bolts to help maintain moisture integrity.. This is a great value for the money.. Be sure to get some desiccant packs for interior moisture control.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gerardgo I selected this product because of its size and features; fire proof, water-resistant.
Hopefully, I will never need to experience the performance of the product's features. At the time of delivery the outside rear casing was distorted in two areas. This type of defect was noted in two previous reviews prior to my purchase. I chose to ignore these warnings and had the item delivered to my home anyway. Since the defects appeared to be minor I accepted the product 'as is'. The locking devices function properly and the overall integrity of the product show no reason for failure. If you are a stickler I would recommend that you have the product delivered to your local Home Depot so that it can be inspected prior to acceptance.

Be careful when your buying SENTRY safe, if the product is damage or it stops working they only cover the electronic problem for a year after that your on your own. My SENTRY would not open, when I called their customer support they said they only cover the electronic failure for a year, they recommend to call the locksmith and have them break in the safe. Sentry does not cover that. I have to buy a brand new safe just because their product failed to perform. DO NOT BUY SENTRY. YOU WILL WASTE YOUR MONEY!

This safe is perfect for safe keeping of papers and some valuables. Small enough to keep in a confined space in the home, yet not to large to take with if necessary. Can be secured to floor by bolting through bottom of safe if more of a permanent solution is preferred. Product itself seems very robust and is awkward and a bit heavy to carry by one person, therefore making it difficult for a single person to pick up and take; would recommend the floor bolts for maximum security. Overall very happy with the product and value.

First of all the safe come unlocked, If you turn the handle and spin the dial you lock the door . That is how the door locks. The combination numbers and additional info are inside the safe. So open the door and take that out first. The combination lock is the main locking device . The key is addition to the combination but not by itself .Now you know where the other reviews went opps.
The safe is well made. Bolts are supplied if you wish to bolt it to the floor. You will have to drill your own holes. Read the combination instructions carefully. I didn't , After 20 attempts I reread them and found MY mistake. I did lock the door without closing it shut to test it out, so I was not worried about locking anything in.
Its the perfect size for docs. photos passports etc 1 hour fireproof my main buying point. Waterproof too.

After having read numerous reviews on various safes, one question remained. It had to do with the "double locking feature". This safe will lock two ways. Once opened by combination it can be closed and the safe quick locked by the key. The key will then open the safe if the dial is not changed. If the key is not used when locking the safe, then the dial will open the safe once the combination has been dialed in. This is useful when you have multiple people with the combination but only one key or for quick access on occasion and double security at others. The safe is great, the product descriptions are confusing and that was the thing that kept me from purchasing until I saw one review that described the locking action correctly.
