Really good safe at a great price
Summary: If you need something more than just a metal lock box -- but something less than a full-sized business safe -- at an affordable price (under $200) with the added benefit of it being fire- & water-proof under most conditions, this one is worth being on your short-list of choices.
Details: I looked at reviews for several different sizes, manufacturers and models of safes and settled on this one. It seemed to be the best match for what I needed, and -- as usual -- Walmart had the best price I could find (most others in the $200-225 range).
It was heavier than I expected for it's size, almost 100 lbs, so it is hefty. I had it delivered to a store close-by for pickup (which was way better & cheaper than having it delivered), so it came in a shipping box, lined with styrofoam and containing the actual product box which was also well packeged. You'll want a pickup or SUV to take this home; it'll fit in a car trunk but you'll probably have to tie the lid down.
Interior of safe is very roomy; plenty of space for documents, jewelry and other small valuables -- even a couple of full-sized handguns and ammo (if you're so inclined). Most of today's laptop computers probably wouldn't fit in it, but smaller mini-laptops, a Kindle Fire, PDA's, a Tom-Tom or Garmin auto GPS, etc would fit with room to spare. The plastic shelf can be moved to 3 levels within the safe or removed completely. The inside panel of the door has a small space in the top, about the size of a Quarter roll for really small items and a set of hooks for keys, necklaces or thin bracelets (like a tennis bracelet).
The overall size of the safe, for me, was large enough to be useful but small enough that it doesn't take up much floor space. You could tuck it in a corner, cover it with small cloth and put a plant on top -- hide it in plain sight and it would not be obvious at all.
I purchased the manual combo lock because I didn't want to have to rely on a battery operated lock. The combination is different than your old school locker combo or a combination padlock you might pick up from the local hardware store, so be prepared for a little bit of learning and be patient; the number and rotation pattern takes a little getting used to... I would recommend you open and lock it several times BEFORE you put anything of value in it, just to get the feel of how it works. It's not hard, just tricky.
The combo numbers are preset and nothing in the booklet tells how to change the numbers. I've read other reviews on this safe where users said you can call their help line and they can tell you how to change the numbers (as of this writing, I haven't called to find out). There is a sticker on the safe with the combo numbers and spin pattern; keep it and hide it somewhere. Also, a barrel-type key lock hidden under a removable tab at the bottom of the combo dial (pictures don't show it) opens the safe if all else fails. The handle is plastic, but it seems pretty heavy-duty. It doesn't feel cheap or flimsy at all when you use it to open & lock the door. The door is secured by horizontal 1/2-inch diameter (or a little larger) bolts, so when you close & lock it, it is very tight.
The safe sits on 4 round plastic feet about 1/4 - 3/8 -inch thick. I've read where others have drilled holes and mounted it to the floor, but I think you'd really have to go through alot to do this (industrial drill & bits, re-seal to maintain water & fire -proof characteristics, etc). Beside, they make a bolt-down model of this same safe.
Size, features and price; this was the best choice for me for a household safe.Brig57
This safe was delivered right to my door. It weighs about 100 lbs., so I was surprised to see the delivery guy at my front door. I was able to slide it into the bedroom and unpacked it there. I use the key most of the time because it is easier and faster to get into the safe. It had one of those gel packs for moisture which I kept. I keep the wife's jewelry and a couple of handguns in the safe.
If you are unable to slide it along the floor, you will need a substantial hand truck or dolly to move it. If you are planning on stealing the whole safe, make sure you have a strong partner to help lift it into the getaway car.taxedny
Safe is Exactly as Described
This safe was purchased to replace an older Sentry safe with an electronic keypad. Over the years the electronic keypad failed to the point that I would have to enter the combination multiple times before the safe would open. This First Alert safe with the conventional combination dial works perfectly, and has a slightly larger interior than the Sentry Safe. I have only used this safe for one week, but at this time I am extremely satisfied with it.TerpinAZ
I was a little apprehensive at first when I picked up my safe. The box was much bigger than I had expected. Luckily the young lady at pick-up opened the box for me and showed me the larger size was due to packing. Also I was extremely lucky the young man that took the safe out to my car could lift it into my back seat. I didn't realize it weighed 100 lbs. Anyway, I am very happy with my new safe. It turned out to be just the size that was listed on the web site so it fit perfectly where I intended to put it. It is extremely sturdy. Luckily the keys work because I haven't figured out how to open it with the combination as yet. I'm sure it's just me not following the instructions exactly as printed. I was impressed with the amount of space inside.igiveupwiththenickname
perfect size 1.3 cu ft
It comes in a larger box then the actual safe package ...all corners had thick corner pads inside.to protect during shipping
although about 90 lbs...its hard to get a hold of to pick up...plan on a trolly of some kind . maybe even a mechanics rolling board to put on to roll around. The safe itself took a few trys to get open...shelf and space is good..I am glad i got the 1.3...unless you have alotof things to keep the fire rating etc was a bit better than the smaller ones...I did not want electronic...there is also a key that works independent of the combo...think about that/consider vs the competitors.
This was to replace a safety deposit box at the bank with less than half the space.$55 a year..
I had it shipped to the store so that in case there was damage..visable on the outside I could check it there instead of shipping it to the house.The gal at Walmart was helpful and helped get it to the carBenge6xCg
Purchase meets/exceeds expectations....
I am quite happy with the purchase. It has much plastic in the design, which is actually good because it means that those parts will not be prone to corrosion, but does not feel cheap. Although I do wish the handle was a little more heavy duty. Aside from that, great value.
I like that this brand/model has a keyed option. People were complaining about the complexity of the combination, but I found it very straight forward, and merely wondered at those peoples... capacity.
Bigger than I expected, and 100 lbs. is no joke.Giarc13
First Alert 2092F Safe
This is a very heavy and well made safe. As others have noted, the handle is a bit "cheesy" but if the handle were to break, entry into the safe would absolutely not be gained. It's really not a big deal, and if you don't act like a 600 lb gorilla when opening it, the handle should last indefinitely. I like the safe a lot. Plenty of room, and when filled with what I have in it, the total weight approaches 200 lbs. It is also pretty bulky and a thief (snatch and grab) would indeed have a very difficult time making off with this safe. The only problem I encountered ... no keys were shipped with the safe. I had to call First Alert and order them (free), but in order to do so, I had to fax them a notarized statement that I was the owner of the safe. Good policy. In addition, after informing Walmart of the problem with the notarized statement etc. etc. they (Walmart) refunded me $15.00 for the hassle and inconvenience. Not bad Walmart. Not bad at all.whatsitmatteranyway
Good safe for home use. Key feature is very handy.
We bought this safe after we were having problems with a similar size safe but with an electronic key pad . Walmart delivered safe in about 2 days even with the free ground delivery.
The safe is heavy but we could easily slide the safe across carpet and tile floors.
We like the convenience of the key feature.sqeezeey
The product on itself may be good, the packaging however is its weakness. There is nothing else than a thin layer of carton to protect it during transportation and the guys moving this very heavy item do not mind if ever they could damage it.
I do not know if the item was damaged by Walmart at their warehouse or by Fedex who delivered it to my door but I had to return it.
Walmart sent me another safe over and the new one arrived in almost the same condition: so damaged that the integrity of the safe was compromised and it could not protect my valuables against fire or flood. I returned it and got refunded.
Do not order this item to be delivered home, it would arrived broken.
What is not mentioned in the description of this item is that the exterior is made of heavy duty composite plastic. It might be just fine to keep valuables out of fire or water damages but if it drops on the floor from very little height, it could brake under its own weight.
Walmart customer service has been very kind and efficient on my case though.Thierry
Don't Buy This product!
Receive this safe in a undamaged shipping box. Unpacked and read the instructions. Safe opened with the key but not the combination lock. The door would not lock with the key or combination. Plastic parts were broken inside the door as I could hear the rattling inside. My only recourse was to return to the store for a refund as the other option was to return to the manufacture prepaid ( my expense) to have it repaired. A piece of junk IMHO.Digitalphotog1
