    seems safe
    Purchased this product thinking it would have to be put together only to find that it is one solid piece with a door on it when you pick it up or have it delivered! It has a spot on the top where you can hook it with a chain and lift it to place it wherever you need to with a tractor that has the ability to lift a bucket at least 8 feet off the ground if you want to get it High enough to move it. I had it installed inside my shed because I couldn’t afford to have another platform of concrete poured that was equivalent of the recommendations by FEMA Which are it must be set on a concrete slab at least 1 ft.² bigger than the size of the product which in my case would have been 7 x 5 and approximately 24 inches thick and in the equivalent weight required by OSHA because the weight of what it is anchored to is what keeps it stable when a tornado hits. It is also quite claustrophobic inside and I am planning to keep a battery operated fan and light and a battery charger for my phone inside there at all times. I would recommend

      SURVIVE A STORM TWISTER POD
      I purchased a Survive A Storm twister pod through Home Depot about a month ago. My son installed it last week and I couldn't be happier. I called Survive a Storm a few times and they were very helpful. Very happy with the twister pod. Now I feel safe should a tornado warning sound.

      Safe and sound
      I like the storm shelter. It was easy to place with a little help from my friends and instillation can be done by most anyone who can use an electric drill and a wrench. My wife and I will feel a bit better the next time a tornado warning sounds.

      With the weather being crazy, it’s a good feeling to know that we have a safe place to go. We have been in it twice so far. It seats to people very well, but it can fit 4 people as we found out. I had a local contractor pick it up and installed for only $500. If you have a new build, make sure a contractor marks all the wires and pipes that run through out the cement. It’s anchored and ready if we need it.

      We had it installed in our garage area, doesn't take up too much space. I hope I never have to use it, but if I do, I'm glad it there!
