Just don’t lock yourself out!
I just got locked out in a 40 degree rain while taking out the trash. Stupid me! At least I was smart enough to have a spare house key stashed in the trusty Hillman magnetic key box... or that’s what I was thinking. So I retrieve the Hillman box and knew I’d have a struggle to get the key out. Before hiding the box, I’d rehearsed the best techniques (noted in other reviews here) to open the box... it’s darn near impossible to open on a good day. And now my hands are wet and the box is wet and slippery too. I didn’t stand a chance against this key holding vault. So I’m standing on the porch freezing and wet. And I can’t get my hands or the box dry enough to muscle the thing open. After a few minutes I gave up and got the sledge hammer from the shed. Don’t waste your money on this piece of junk until Hillman figures out how to make a sliding door on this box that doesn’t require tremendous finger strength or a sledge hammer. Lesson learned!

I've never seen one that didn't have a strong magnet. I have a hobby where I've probably opened a hundred of them that lived outside in the weather. I've never damaged a container opening one. They can be a little difficult to open, but if you use Helen's procedure it is fairly easy to open. Press your thumbs on the middle of the picture of the key and push the sliding lid away from you. Try to put your thumbs one in front of the other so you put the least pressure on the edges that slide. Don't try to use the ridged grip, that will press the lid against the body and make it harder to slide. Occasionally I run into one that's little stiff, so after I get a small opening I put something in the opening and twist it to open it more. After that it usually opens easily. The feet do rust out doors and you have to replace them occasionally if your fastidious. I've never know one to stop holding, rusted or not. It would be better if I could add a video but the picture I'm adding will have to do.

Perfect for what I was needing. Good, strong magnets. Securely closes, yet it is easy enough to slide open....so far at least. Very pleased with this product, plus you can't beat the price.
