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

    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.

    Kinda small
    It's about the size of a portapotty. Super fun to fly in during the tornado and you never know where your going to end up.

      Easy install. Makes me feel much safer. The color was dark gray instead of beige but that didn’t bother us at all. Would recommend!

      I live in an area that actually gets tornadoes, so I need something safe, and I'm confused as to whether or not this will actually protect me from a big one. They said that it meets FEMA guidelines, but I checked myself and I'm just not sure. I wish someone at Survive-a-Storm could provide a little more reassurance. I'm mainly concerned about the integrity of the foundation. They said that it could be installed on a slab that was 12 inches thick, even though other shelters required 24 inches depth and anchors to be installed. I'm just not sure if it would be safe in a large tornado.
