I have had this safe for years! It is ok for keeping small documents in but I would not recommend it for really keeping items safe. And, yes, that is the point of it.

This safe is very small inside. It could only hold a few papers, jewelry, coins, CDs, or any other small things you may need hidden. The outside has a handle so it is pretty easy to carry but it is not light at all. It is around 18 pounds. The lock is horrible! Part of the handle flips down to keep the safe closed and then it has a plastic key. Yes, PLASTIC! It would be very easy to break into this safe.

The main reason I keep this safe is in case of a fire. That is the point the Sentry company promotes. This safe offers 1/2 hour fire protection up to 1550 degrees. That is better than nothing. However, I did have a family member whose house burnt down and this safe did not protect their valuables.

Personally I would not buy this safe again. I would probably go with another one from the same company though. They have came a long way since this one was on the market.
