Could this safes be mounted under a bedside table?

Yes, this safe can be mounted under a table and the hardware is included.

Can I use just the fingerprint option or do I have to use both?

Asked by Morgan November 9, 2016
7
Answers

You cannot set it so it is fingerprint only, nor can you set it so both are required. So the correct answer is any of the three modes can open this and you cannot remove a mode if you are concerned with the fact that the design means there are actually not many possible combination on the key pad, you cant disable the keypad and use only fingerprints.

can this safe be bolted to a wall or floor?

recommend to be mounted to a horizontal surface, but I purchased a very strong magnet (holds 30 lbs) and cut out the foam padding to accommodate the magnet and it holds the weapon very securely on a wall mounted unit.

Is this safe for storing ammunition?

Asked by Keith July 17, 2016
5
Answers

it is small an expensive to use it as a dedicated storage for ammunition. If you wanted to store a loaded gun or a gun wiht a spare loaded mag, and a box of ammo it iwll fit and will be fine. Generally you don't store much boxed ammunition in a safe. It many jurisdiction it is a code problem to do so. Why? Ammunition stored in ammo boxes is a small hazard in a burning home, it is a major hazard if stored in a sizable safe as you are containerization explosives amplifying any explosion. You can get ammo boxes that have spaces for padlocks. But this safe is small and the amount of ammo you would have in it with your firearm is trivial

Very secure
Customer review from sentrysafe.com logo
Perfect for my nightstand. Holds one firearm and many extra rounds. My only frustration with it is the gas strut; when the safe first opens the strut is slow to open the door. In an emergency I could see this being a potential hazard. If the strut were quicker in action this would be 5 stars.

Quality construction, excellent ease of access
Customer review from sentrysafe.com logo
I like it very much. The build quality is generally very good except for a weirdly cheap plastic battery compartment. The fingerprint reader is pretty excellent, only misreads now and then. The security code and physical key ways of entry are also great and work flawlessly. Love the hydraulic arm that lifts the lid for you. The only thing it's missing is a light on the inside. Great product, you won't be disappointed.

Perfect for safety and usability
Customer review from sentrysafe.com logo
Both me and my wife love the finger print option. She is happy with only having to use her finger print to open the safe and have access to its contents. I enjoy and feel safe assured that my wife can get to its contents with confidence when needed

VERY Poor Quality / Piston won't open the safe.
Customer review from sentrysafe.com logo
The reason for the safe (pistol safe) is in the name, to keep your pistol safe from others BUT quickly accessible. If the piston that opens it fails and won't open you cannot reach your pistol quickly in the moment it matters! I bought 2 safes and both stopped opening because the piston is too weak and failing. VERY poor quality at THE MOST CRITICAL TIME where it matters most! You have to consider a different safe an possibly company.

Worked for 1 year - door fails to open fully
Customer review from sentrysafe.com logo
My safe worked great for a year. After the year mark, I noticed the door to the safe wouldn’t lift as high when unlocking it. I changed the batteries and had the same results. Now at a little over 2 years, I unlock the safe and have to carefully lift the door from the side to get it open. After reading some of the reviews here, it looks like a pretty common issue with this product. It would be great but it’s expensive and not a investment if it stops being effective after a year.

Great at first....but
Customer review from sentrysafe.com logo
My wife and I loved the ease of use of this safe, but in less than two years... the strut has failed as many others have mentioned. I'm sure there are longer lasting products on the market now. If I have to replace the strut on this every year, I would rather spend the money on something else that will last.

Loved it at first, gas piston goes bad.
Customer review from sentrysafe.com logo
This was great at first, quick opening with biometrc unlock but after less than a year, the gas piston quit and I can't find another one to replace it. Makes it kind of unsafe when you're trying to fumble around in the middle of the night for your firearm and the safe doesn't open.

Gas Struts quit relatively soon
Customer review from sentrysafe.com logo
I own TWO of these biometric safes. I use one for keeping a firearm in it at home. Being a school teacher, I use the other one for locking up money, when collecting from students for various school-sponsored activities and field trips. Both safes have been great, until in approximately 1.5 to 2 years the GAS STRUTS on both of them stopped working. In other words, the finger scanner and/or push button code triggers the lock to unlatch, but then the safe has to be flipped upside down for the lid to open, or a flat head screwdriver has to be used to pry it open (see the attached image). This exact same defect happened in both safes, and considering that the safe that has been used for the gun safekeeping has only seen about 10 open/close cycles in a 2 –year period, the strut mechanism longevity is very poor. So if you need a safe with a well-functioning biometric electronics and the lock mechanism, but the poor quality strut for approximately a year and a half to two years, then buy it. After the above period, you will have to either pry the lid open with a screwdriver or turn the safe upside down to get your contents out. Hope this helps to make your purchase decision.

Finally a great biometric / How I fixed my strut.
Customer review from sentrysafe.com logo
I’ve had other biometric pistol safes before, and this beats them hands down. The quick swipe finger pad is easy to see, impossible to miss even when you are in a hurry, and quick. I’ve had it a couple of years and yes, my strut started getting weak. For a few cents I got another spring like the one on the strut. Without disassembling anything, I just wound the spring on the strut, effectively increasing the opening force. Just like new. I’m guessing the spring will last me longer than a new strut.
