The key broke-off in the lock, so I exchanged it for another one. The second one was the identical model. Model 1170 is smaller in cubic inches but sells for the same price. This is a storage chest for my coin collection, as it is waterproof and fire resistant. Overall, for the price, ($39.95) it is an excellent value.
This is a sturdy box (I wouldn't really call it a safe) that will protect against fire and water. The whole box with the load is not that heavy, so a thief could take it without much effort. A light tap of a hammer or a drop from about a foot or two on a hard surface and the plastic lock plate will easily break. The black plastic section where the lock is located is flimsey and could easily come loose rendering the whole unit useless as it could not be closed/locked. But it does provide the fire & water protection, which is more than a simple filing cabinet.
