Perfect for our needs

by escsgsm, from United States, OH Written on February 1, 2015
This quick access security safe was perfect for our needs. This model comes with the AC power cord, which I believe is important because the reviews on the standard model (doesn't come with the AC cord-battery only) indicate it drains the batteries too quickly. The AC power is a big plus. I tried a biometric safe from a different company and it was worthless, so I am not a fan of biometrics. If they're not 100% reliable then why bother. So, the mechanical buttons with a key override was my preference. The only complaints I have about this safe is the foam padding is a little cheap feeling and the way the 9 volt battery is attached isn't user friendly at all, and the included literature didn't have a good diagram showing how to access the battery bracket. This is a good option for home security that will keep the firearm out of the hands of children....
Pros:
  • AC power
  • internal light
  • mechanical buttons
Cons:
  • battery bracket not well designed
Best Used for:
  • keeping it out of childrens hands
  • Home Defense
Would recommend: Yes

Horrible quality - do not waste your money!

by trueblue, from United States, TX Written on December 21, 2014
Product quality is horrible. The lock breaks and you can't get your firearm out without calling a locksmith. Company does not stand behind product. There are many other reviews on the poor quality and customer service....

Good product

by BillyTheKid, from United States, TX Written on November 6, 2014
Good heavy box with tight seems and good workmanship. Easy to open in the dark. Opens fast but is noisy, needs to be quieted with a slow pressure release piston like on a hathback. Otherwise an outstanding product.......
Pros:
  • None
Cons:
  • great craftmanship
Would recommend: Yes

Great little safe

by mhr0001, from United States, MN Written on September 7, 2014
Love these - I have four so far. They're small enough to put just about anywhere around the house, easy to program, and I don't have to worry about my kids being able to access something they're not ready to handle. Battery back-up, quick access to my firearm should the need arise, room for the gun plus a few extra mags and even small boxes of ammo... Buy one!...

Only minor gripes

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, MS Written on January 30, 2014
Really like this case for my bedside pistol. The custom code is easy to input and use. I can fit my glock 23 an extra mag and small flashlight, however wish there was just a tad more room in this model so I didn't have to stack the mag and flashlight. I know there's a larger model, but I didn't need quite that much space, just a tad more.
The light does not stay on long either, this could be improved.
Overall this safe looks and feels like quality. Glad I purchased it.
Pros: fit and finish...

It works

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on June 20, 2013
I really do like the safe. So far it has worked fine. So as for the primary function, I love it. The features are pretty lousy though. The "motion alarm" gives a quiet single beep ONLY when it is turned completely vertical (wouldn't let me know at all if it was tampered with). The light is EXTREMELY dull, might as well not even be there. It's like a flashlight that is seconds from going out. The foam lining on the top was lousy, hanging down and getting in the way so I just ripped out the top foam.
Pros: Convenient , robust
Cons: features are lacking, and fit and finish not so good...
Would recommend: Yes

Probably a great safe if I could get a key

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on May 20, 2013
Dumb me, closed the door with the key inside after a cursory inspection with No battery installed yet.
Solution, order key from company. Great, and free. Lots of supportive talk from tech service. But that was in January again in March and still waiting. Worried my $ are wasted and worse my gun is not in a safe. Hard to shake the feeling of being run around the barn. Here's hoping things will get straightened out. Will let you know.
Pros: we will see
Cons: Don't do anything until you read instructions...

Good Product

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on May 3, 2013
I returned this product in exchange for another, previously purchased model. I did not realize that an external power source was required for operation.
Pros: Good quality, easy to use
Cons: requires an external power source and not just battery power as in some of the other GunVault Products....
Would recommend: Yes
