Rated 1 out of 5 by Layshar Name brand, good price, just a poor product.
Named brand item, sounded like a good buy, waterproof and fireproof for a ½ hour, however, although it would lock, the lid would still not seal. It had about a ¼” + gap. The lock is also cheap, overall not a good product. Returned the product the next day, Wal-Mart refunded my money without any problem.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LongBoardSurfer Great case
The safe is strong and secure. The lock is not very easy to use because it does not turn unless you are pushing down on the lid while turning it. However, I have gotten used to this and its not so bad.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jocko45 Meets my needs for a safe storage of documents
The whole process was good! Went online, specified the product that I was looking for, reviewed a number of different models, did some measuring, chose a model, and ordered it. The brand is well known for these types of items and I felt very comfortable purchasing that item. I would recommend the product and the ordering process to anyone. While I can't verify that the box will protect items inside it for "X" number of minutes of fire/water, I surely feel much more comfortable that my documents are in it. ( I don't want to test the box either!)
H0100 Waterproof Fire Chest
Rated 4 out of 5 by DRBRLSU Great price but smaller than hoped.
I purchased this to hold personal documents and wish it was big enough for a sheet of paper. It was cheap and seals tight so it will work well.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Limpet Great Investment For Potential Disaster
Trying to be prepared if disaster occurs and paper documents are destroyed, I'll have them scanned onto media and stored in this media-rated case. It's not too heavy, has a carrying handle, and has plenty of room for SanDisks, CD's or other media.
Rated 4 out of 5 by mamatozz I think these little safes are a great value for the money. This is our second one, but this one is also waterproof. It being waterproof makes it a little harder to close and open then the other one we have which is only fireproof. You really have to push it down hard to get it to close and lock.
Rated 4 out of 5 by PensacolaBob simple but appears adequate
minimal security but we were after water and fire security
Rated 5 out of 5 by Prissy17 Waterproof Fire Chest
I have already returned the fire chest to the store. It was too heavy for me to lift. I could not get it open without help. All this could have had something to do with me being 70 years old and having arthritis in my left hand. The actual product looked as if it would do the job I just could not handle the chest itself.
Rated 4 out of 5 by rnoname Great Value!
Great product for the price. It can be hard to close because of the waterproof rubber seal, but that ensures a tight fit. The storage space is limited. It's large enough to keep some important documents (folded), coins, or handgun, etc. I'm very pleased.
Rated 5 out of 5 by meekaw great unit great price
exactly what i needed and what great price with high quality built.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Roxiecub Beware-Doesn't fit standard paper
I purchased this to store important documents (birth certificate, marriage certificate, passport, etc) and some computer backup discs in case of a fire. The chest is too small on the inside for a sheet of paper to fit flat. If you're just looking to store small items it appears it would work quite well, but for documents it seems too small- at least I thought it was for my purposes.
Rated 2 out of 5 by janice64 Hard to get open
A person needs to keep the instructions to be able to open this safe. Push down on the lid, squeeze to lever, turn the key and its open. Loose the instructions and never get it open.
Rated 2 out of 5 by BeneNun Doesn't fit 8.5x11 paper
1.) Walmart doesn't give internal dimensions but Amazon does. They are wrong. It will not fit a standard 8.5x11 sheet of paper so they are no good for store important documents. This was the main reason why I returned it.
2.) The 1/4 inch gap people talk about it there but it appears to be designed that way...interesting. I'm not sure if it's a big deal or not. It's still waterproof, theoretically.
3.) The way you open the case is a bit clumsy. You have to press down and then lift the latch....you have to press down pretty hard.
4.) Keep in mind, this is a really inexpensive case so if the size works for you it should be fine.
Rated 3 out of 5 by deej344 My only problem with the waterproof chest is that it takes two sticks of dynamite to open it after it's locked.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Usdebt Poor lock, but roomy
It still has a gap when close it. I hope it is what is supposed to be, may need to go to a store to check out another one to confirm my finding, I may return it if there is no gap when it is close
Rated 4 out of 5 by ksie Great safety box for small items or documents
The only issue was kind a heavy, other than that it meets all my expectations
Rated 2 out of 5 by Rapunzel88 The price was very low and it's secure enough but the lock is VERY difficult to open and close
Rated 5 out of 5 by Augustmom3 This is my go to gift for graduations and engagements. Well made and very practical. It's fire safe, waterproof and has a key lock. Every one who has received this from us has sincerely thanked us. It's a great value. It can be used for many, many years.
Rated 1 out of 5 by okthen15 Came in with broke lock, no good.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ItalianRedneck good deal
bigger then it looks,,good lock, good price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by havegoodtime Great fire chest for the price.
Found cheaper price at Walmart.com rather than store. Meets expectations.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Giagia Quality seems good but plastic outercase
I am satisfied with the looks and feel of this case but it remains to be seen if it is truly waterproof and fireproof, both of which I hope I never have to find out!
Rated 4 out of 5 by savicas Saving box
It's my second security box bought and I'm satisfied enough. Let's see if some day the waterproof and fire save options works as good as it seems to be....
I like this box because is big enough (too small for a A4 paper) and also has a handle to transport. Very useful.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mxf954 Everyone needs one
You never know when things will happen and today just try to get an I.D with no Birth Cert. Keeping important documents safe is critical. This is a great product
Rated 5 out of 5 by marebear65 i love it . but it took me a little bit of time to figure out how to open it but by golly i got it now. ty .
Rated 1 out of 5 by thegent sorry, i saw reviews and got it anyway ,mine is the same, bad lock brought it back
Rated 5 out of 5 by LAB60 A little peace of mind.
I worry a little less about a flood or fire destroying important documents.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mikeNE Does what is expected-secures belongings.
I have two safes from Sentry. My first is bigger and preferred; however, it is not waterproof.
My biggest concern is fire safety and this safe is rated at 1500 degrees for a few hours. The contents (video at Sentry safe) showed the documents were fine after they fired it.
For the money, it's a great buy. I read other reviews about the "gap" and the locking mechanism. I found that the gap was fine. The locking mechanism isn't for a safe you put 100k diamonds in; it's for documents and small items. There's not a lot of interior space and it doesn't hold 8.5 by 11. It's more like 8x11.
Overall, I got what I paid for and am satisfied.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mrlandlord Great for small personal items
I just needed a small safe to stow away some important documents and rainy day cash. When I ordered the safe, I expected a puny little safe. When I picked it up, it was much larger than I expected but in a good way. I guess to make it water and fireproof, it had to be larger. It fits everything I wanted to and more!
This purchase definitely exceeded my expectations and I am very happy with the quality of the product.
Rated 4 out of 5 by CarlosSpiceyweiner Not to shaby...
It serves its purpose. Not top knotch but hey, we got it for about $20. Not to shaby :-)
