Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by abc123 Hillman magnetic key holder
Read about the size issues. Held my Toyota RAV4 key up to the outside, tight but it would fit. Not. There is a 1/4" bump out on the inside, key is now 1/4" longer than the inside. Cut a hole in the end. Problem solved. Not. The key is also too fat to allow me to close the lid. So, too short and not deep enough. If you drive an old car with a plain key, you're in luck. They need to completely redesign this thing.

I love this key box. It's a great price for a long-lasting, super-functional product that does the job!
I'm seeing some reviews here saying that this box is impossible to open... I've had absolutely no such issue with mine, from the first day of purchase, up to today-about a year later. I simply push the top along as indicated to slide open tne box and get to my keys.
The magnet is also super strong and will stay in place well. I've got no complaints and highly recommend this product!

I just wanted to write in and tell everyone that if are to get this key holder it won't slip off or anything. And it goes everywhere that you do provided that you put it in a secure enough area on your vehicle. I have one for my car which I take everywhere with me off road, through puddles, on fairly bumpy roads and when I checked it was still there. Recently I purchased one for a car that I planned on driving across the country and I had loaded it up with every spare key that I was going to need. After 2600 miles it was still in the same spot that I had left it when I started the trip.

I pried the door open and used a nail file to each side of the door - it will slide open easy enough but not so it will come open by itself. They just needed to trim the edges better for a correct fit. Magnets are strong - it works.

Even if I had seen the review by another buyer noting that the box itself won't open by any reasonable method, I would probably have thought she was inept and bought ithe product anyway. However, I now see her problem. We purchased one that can't be opened (without demolishing the product itself) by any of 5 very strong and resourceful individuals at our workplace. Not that we haven't used other brands of magnetic key boxes before--we have, but this one is in a class all by itself--useless from the gitgo.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TheLorhax Magnetism is extremely weak
I had purchased this to store a spare house and car key in that I could attach to the underside of my car. The magnet was very weak. It fell off at some point.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Helen Here's the secret to opening it!
To open, hold it with both hands, and press down firmly on the key picture with both thumbs,
while sliding the top. It will open, and is strong and durable. The magnets are super.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Noni Wonderful! Well worth the money.
I placed one of these boxes under my vehicle when I bought it 7 years ago and almost forgot about it. It has been through a deer decimating our undercarriage, many washes, winter in the mid-west with salt etc. In my moment of need ( I stupidly locked my keys inside my car)it was still firmly attached to my vehicle and it saved me the trouble of calling my husband or a locksmith. It was like winning the lottery! I will replace my old one as the magnets are rusting, but are still fully functional.
