"We were looking for a robust, secure safe that would be able to be secured within the building but that we would be able to move it if we needed too. Comparing costs with safes with greater fire times I think the one we chose will hopefully meet all our needs."

Review 4 for Sentry Safe 34.8Ltr Water Resistant Combination Fire Safe 415 x 491 x 453mm
"I haven't used this safe for long - I may add more detail later when I've more experience with it.
One key point that I think should be pointed out is that upon opening the manual it says that "PRODUCT IS NOT WATER RESISTANT IF IT IS BOLTED DOWN"! This is because to bolt it down two holes have to be drilled through the bottom of the safe, which of course breaks the base seal! I had assumed that the bolts would go through the base underneath some sort of removable panel with a rubber seal, but no.
I imagine this will be true of all of the similar Sentry models.
I do think it is deceptive to advertise this safe as water resistant and coming with a bolt-down kit if the latter invalidates the former!
P.S. My three star ratings are because they were non-optional but I have no opinion on those aspects yet."

Review 5 for Sentry Safe 34.8Ltr Water Resistant Combination Fire Safe 415 x 491 x 453mm
"Not a good experience. The combination cannot be changed from the factory issued code which is no good at all if you want a memorable one. Code is printed on the back of the instruction book which is less than obvious. Despite our previous experience with traditional rotating mechanical safe locks, neither of us could unlock it! The lock mechanism feels flimsy and didn't inspire confidence. We had to give up after over 10 attempts to open it. Had to return to store. I can only suggest that some of these are being sent out with faulty locks."
