    I have several of these Fire-Safe files. They are great and they work. I'm sorry to say that I had the oppertunity to find out and they did exactly what it says. The lid sealed shut and it melted, and I mean melted. We put it in a vise and used a grinding wheel to cut off the bottom of it. All papers and disks inside were perfect.

    Sentry 1170 Fire Chest "safe"
    3/4/2010

    Customer review by cloudcroft

    4.0 stars 3/4/2010 by cloudcroft
    by cloudcroft

    I have found these simple Sentry Fire Chests "safes" to be nice solutions if you have a non-fire-rated safe/RSC but want to add at least SOME fire-protection to its contents: You get one (or more) of these Sentry Fire Chests, put any papers/vauables into it/them, then put it/them inside your steel safe/RSC. These are not REAL "safes" of course, but take it to mean they are "safe" (for 30 minutes MAYBE) from fire, certainly NOT from theft as they can easily be pried open or carried off. But put into a non-fire-rated safe/RSC (which is bolted down to the floor/wall) they become more useful. This particular Sentry (model 1170) Fire Chest fits almost perfectly in my Cobalt S852C B-rated (but NOT also F-rated) steel safe. I have had some other models of Sentry Fire Chests (assorted sizes) for years, and put them in two other safes/RSCs I have (both fire-rated and non-fire-rated). You can put as many Fire Chests as you can fit in there, and keep your papers, jewelry, ammo, cameras, whatever in them. Yes, they MIGHT still bake in the safe even if inside a Fire Chest, but it's better than just putting those items into a steel safe with ZERO fire protection and have them destroyed FOR SURE. And, I found (2-11-10) this Sentry 1170 at Walmart.com for a great price PLUS 97-cent shiping...can't beat that! So yes, I would recommend these kind of Senrty FireChests for this purpose -- put into larger safes/RSCs -- rather than to be kept alone under a bed or in a closet somewhere. I didn't give it 5 stars simply because I would have liked to see a bit longer fire protection (45 minutes at least) but 30 minutes is better than none. Also, I saw a video clip of several of these "safes" being put on a pallet and set afire by a local FD, left to burn for a few minutes and then the FD put the fire out with their hoses: Even the non-waterproof rated Fire Chests kept out the water, as the lids "weld" themselves shut in a fire (as designed to do, not a defect) and the contents were fine, so I'm not sure it's necessary to get a "waterproof" rated Fire Chest, which is definitely more expensive. Whatever, even the cheapest Sentry Fire Chests are better than no fire protection at all...at least your stuff has a CHANCE of surviving!

    If you are looking to protect your valuable papers and CD's this is an excellent product. It holds lots of paperwork and there is still plenty of room for a CD holder for your photo CD's.

    This safe is a perfect size and fits all my important documents. Because it holds hanging files I am able to get to important documents without having to look through an entire stack of papers.

    This is a nice strong , safety box, however with no handle it makes it very hard to lift. A handle somewhere on it would have made it a 5 star.

    • A. No it doesn't as a lot of people won't even use it for hanging folders. The good news is, it does not need a folder stand, they have grooved it so the hanging file holders fit in the grooves and you can drop your folders right into them, they move easily too.

    • A. I think you want a much bigger model than this one. Remember this is under 50.00, it does not have a handle, I believe that would cut into the thickness of the fire retardant in the walls/top of the item. This is meant to keep your very small precious items in or your most important papers, its not large enough that anyone would bother bolting it to the floor.

    • A. I answered this question earlier but it's not showing up so I'll try one more time: I don't have mine bolted down and I don't recall if it had "drill-guide indentatons" (for bolt-holes, you drill them yourself) on the inside bottom or not -- and since no bolts/screws came with MINE, so I think not. But I don't bolt mine down, I put these into other safes (see below). But it's no big deal because frankly, bolting any of these Sentry Fire Chest down is pointless as they are FIRE "safe," not a THEFT "safe" as the locks are so simple/crude they easily could be pried open with a screwdriver. Consequently, IMO, they SHOULD be used INSIDE another larger "security/burglary" rated (but not fire-rated) safe/RSC that IS bolted down. My Sentry 1170 does NOT have any handle...it's like a small heavy box that needs both hands to carry.

    • A. I wouldnt worry about bolting it down...the lock is so simple just about any screwdriver could pry it open. These Senrty Fire Chest "safes" are better used when they are put INSIDE a larger safe (such as a real safe or RSC NOT fire-rated) as the Sentry Fire Chests are rated for FIRE protection, not THEFT protection.

    • A. No, there is no handle on it, I think if they were to put a handle on it they would of had to thinned out the wall thickness and that would not be good, as the WHOLE idea of this is for fire protection, so you want the walls to be equally thick..and they are. Its pretty heavy, I am an older woman but I have been able to move it around so I think most people would be able to also.
