Great safe but needs more juice

by Gunsandoughnuts, from United States, CA Written on September 10, 2014
Overall, the quality of this safe was very good, very strong and safe. It seems designed for being plugged into the adapter to have enough amperage to snap the lock open, as the 9 v battery can be unreliable sometimes unless using a special heavy amp photo 9 volt.
The simple solution is just to buy a six aa cell battery holder with 9 v snaps for about seven bucks that you use instead of the 9 v battery.
Simply load it with alkalines, snap it to the connector and mount anywhere you want inside. I am currently trying this, as the other alternative is to use two 9 v cells in parallel, which requires soldering on another snap. The safe is awesomely easy to use, records fingerprints well, and is very reliable when plugged in or with enough battery amp juice. I don't want to return it, I want to oil up the latch, plug in my larger battery pack and keep it. Other than weak battery, I had no problems with the safe, and it comes with everything else you need to keep it rust free and securely mounted. Never be afraid to do a juice up mod when the safe is so ideal for you.
Pros- well built and easy to use.
Cons- needs more backup battery juice to be totally reliable without keys.
Best used for bedroom safe storage....

GUNVAULT IS NO GOOD

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on May 28, 2014
1 out of 7 times the door may open when operated. GUNVAULT HAS THIS ON THEIR WEBSITE, "Q. My brand new GunVault door will not open.
A. Place the unit on a flat service, turn the key, and hit the top/side of the safe with your palm. In rare occasions you may have to use a flat head screw driver by placing the head between the body of the unit and the door. You might also have to bang the lower left edge on the ground". HOW GOOD IS THAT WHEN YOU NEED YOUR GUN? Do not buy one it is no good.

Pros: NONE
Cons: WILL NOT OPEN REGULARLY...

Biometric Pistol Safe

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on August 3, 2013
Love this safe. No combination to fumble with in the dark, just set your finger in the slot, press the next finger on the button, slight delay and it's open. Door slams open, but can be caught with thumb to make entry completely silent, should intruder be in home. Other persons fingerprint tried but rejected. Mounting took 10 minutes with template, drill, and screwdriver. ...

Purchase another safe, save your money!

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on May 20, 2013
Save your money for another product. Purchased mine, used around 100 times, broked the opening system. Found on the web that is common problem, tried contact the Factory, was a pain to get an answer. Go on a Barska, is bigger, cheaper and works 10 times better.
Pros: nice looking
Cons: it breaks...

Quality control issues

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NJ Written on November 4, 2011
Upon taking it out of the box set up was easy. Duracell battery is needed to ensure that it opens everytime. Attaching the security cable looked easy enough..... boy was I WRONG. After about 15 minutes of using a nail punch and hammer I was finally able to get the metal hole seperated from the safe. Good outside metal construction. After securing the cable and turning the safe up from its side I discovered that the plastic cover that goes over the fingerprint reader had come unglued and was sitting on the floor now. I immediately called Gunsafe to find out what to do and they had never heard of this happening. They sent a new safe as a replacement and the refurbished one only opened when it wanted to. That was sent back POS. A little bit of elmers glue and the old one works GREAT.
Pros: Biometric feature, large storage capacity, easy set up
Cons: Attaching the security cable caused headaches galore...

won't open or lock closed

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NY Written on March 14, 2011
safe has a great concept. If it worked. If someone broke in my house they'd hear a loud beep beep followed by the safe taking 5 seconds to not read my finger print followed by beep beep from me keep pressing it hoping it'll open.
Pros: it's small and steardy has a built in light. Customer servise was easy to deal with to replace it. They say it might be defective.
Cons: customer service said it will take 5 week for the replacement, now I have money and guns in a safe that won't stay shut.has a flimsy shelf.the safe never reads my finger print eventhough I put my finger every which way I could. After I get it open with the key it won't lock up. A simple tap on the side and it's open. Also it's so loud, no way to turn the finger print noise off....
