Yes, it did fail when we used it for a 15-inch laptop. The door of the safe is sturdy steel constructed and made up to 2 inches thick. When you open the safe, the door does not take much space if plan to install in confined space. However, we suggest you consider the size before you choose a place for installation.

The interior part is sturdy steel construction. It is the same as the exterior finish. There is an adjustable or removable shelf built inside the safe.

First of all, its external size dimensions are 13.8 × 9.8 × 9.8 inches in length, breadth, and height, respectively. Whilst, it’s interior measurements are 13.5 × 8.75 × 9.5 inches. And, the usable capacity of the safe is 0.5 cu ft. This small size safe can store your important valuables in a very organized manner. But since it is smaller in size, it is well suited for cash, jewelry, and important small document like IDs etc. We tested the safe for all these items. We thought it could fit a gun, but change its position to fit. You can definitely not store the gun with other items; it has to be guns only safe if you really want to use it for guns.
From both internals and externals, the finish with leather-like black coating looks premium. You will actually feel the classy look of the safe from a closer view. Being of smaller in size you can easily install it any big size shelfes. If you have larger desk, you can even incoportate into your office desk. Yes, it does come with bolts to help you install it any where.
The storage capacity is restricted to 0.5 cu ft. Well, it is looking like a small space, but it can accommodate small documents, handguns, jewelry, etc. very nicely. Space is more suitable for home usage rather than official usage. So, you can freely consider this safe for home purposes. The 0.5 cu ft. of storage is not that small to be ignored completely. Yet, the width dimensions are a bit small to store large documents.
The small letter-sized papers can be easily stored, whereas you need to adjust the large documents by folding them. Along with the documents, many ranges of items can be stored in the safe. There is an adjustable tray inside that provides full customization. The size can be enhanced by removing that shelf. In case you need to store big items, then this customization feature will be very helpful. Overall, the size is very suitable to make it you’re personalized safe.

These features are necessary for additional security. Mounting hardware is also provided to bolt it down. You can easily bolt this safe on floor, wall, and shelf. The hinge bars and locking bolts are the support system of the overall locking mechanism. They ensure safety from using additional attacks tools.
The interiors of the safe are solid and sturdy. Like exteriors, interiors are also attractive and stylish. There is a feature of customization with the removable shelf provided. You will get an instruction manual and the mounting hardware inside the safe. While checking the functions of the safe, we are highly satisfied with the interior portions. For the interior, there are not many features for organizing the content. It does have an adjustable shelf which we have talked about earlier.
The interior is well painted, and carpeted to prevent any scratches to your belongings. We did a scratch test by filling the safe with different items that can be easily scratched. And some electronic items that may get damaged even with slightest of the impact. It passed the scratch test. However, there is nothing inside the safe for absorbing impacts. So if you plan to store any brittle items or impact sensitive items avoid this safe.
The safe is equipped with all the features that define portability. It has a long life with its durable steel body. It is the most reasonably priced safe with exclusive features. Since it can store small documents like passport and also cash. This makes up for the portable safe. It is portable at the size is such that it can be adjusted anywhere easily.
We must say at the end that safe is most protable budget-friendly safe with high quality security features. ,However, stick with small size items. Though the manufacturer says it suitable for guns, it only fits small hand guns and for guns with slightly bigger size it is not suitable.
3. Home Keypad Safe – 1.2 Cubic Feet
The two Amazon Basics Safe we have mentioned have capacity below 1.2 cu ft. But for those who require safe with large capacity, the Amazon Basics offers this 1.2 cu ft version with almost similar features of above mentioned safes. While writing this Amazon Basics safe review, we also compared to safe of other brands with similar capacity. Looking at its security features it an easily gain its place in the top safes.
The size looks pretty big on first look. It comes with external measurements of 13×13×14.2 inches, while the internal measurements are recorded at 12.8×10.6×14 inches. Our experts loved the safe just for its big size. Such big size safe can store a large number of items. It can be cash, documents, jewelry, hand guns, ammunition, electronic devices or many other valuables, all will be safe and secure.
While installing, the big size won’t be an issue if you dedicate enough space for the unit. It comes with bolts that allow you to secure the unit to the floor or the wall. We don’t think it can fit into any cabinet or desk. It has to be installed or placed on some kind of furniture.
It has enough space making it capable of storing a large number of items. Along with the large-sized documents, handguns, jewelry, large sized bottles of medicines can be also be kept. This safe will prove to be very useful for home. We tried to store all valuables that an individual stores in the safe at home. With this safe, we not just stored but we were able to organize all the valuables.
For more organization, it comes with inbuilt shelf. The things will be more organized by making use of this shelf. Moreover, the shelf is removable. Removing the shelf will enhance the depth of the compartment and make it more spacious. Only thing that we didn’t like about the safe is you cannot store a 15-inch laptop. However, something like 11-inch mac book can fit easily. An organizer on the door would have also helped organize small items like keys, passport, pen drive etc. However, you use something like a pouch, it would solve this issue.
It gets unlocked with a simple programmable electronic keypad. The manufacturer provides 2 override keys in case you lose the code or system is down. With regards to its locking system, it is totally secure. Once you set the code, the person having access to that code can only unlock the safe.. Well, for the first time, you need to open the safe with the keys included in the package. At first, instance, as we have experienced while checking the safe, it consumes a little bit time to open it. One thing missing for this system is the backlit keypad. In low light conditions, such pad would have made life easier. To open safely, you may need to use two hands, one at the knob and one at the key.
The keys also play a great role in the backup system. In case you lost access to the code or forgot it, the keys will be your last resort. In this way, the combination locking system in safes proves to be very helpful. Keys are straight forward traditional keys not computerized. There is an instruction manual also on how to set a password. As we have done it already, so here is how you can do it. First of all, insert the batteries into the compartment built inside at the back of the door of the safe. The, you have to press a reset button as mentioned. The beep sound will come and happily set your code between 3-8 digits. So, programming the safe is not a big deal.
We love the overall features of the interiors. The interior size is quite big and spacious. There is a removable shelf that provides easy customization with the interiors of safe. The floor is carpeted and gives a smooth surface to store the items. You can store books, passports, etc. very well. We also performed scratch test we shook the safe and observed how the interior surface affects the content. Because of the smooth paint and carpeted floor, content were scratch-free. It uses half inch two locking bolts which is the important part of the safe. These bolts ensure that no one without the codes access the safe.
On the back of the safe, four mounting holes are already there to bolt it down easily. They are easily visible from inside. Mounting hardware is provided along with the safe. Bolting down a safe also comes in an additional security feature. Moreover, pry-resistant hinges are there to extra safety. Thus, overall its interiors are a comfort to use. We have encountered no complex issues while using the safe. The construction part is of premium quality. It has 8-gauge steel door and a 14-gauge steel door
For the safe of this size you don’t want it be portable. It is more of permanent installation. However, if you still have to move it every few months or year due to some reason, it would take two men. And if you have installed it over the wall or on the floor, it would take some tools to break free. We won’t suggest you to install the safe if this is the case. This safe is more suitable as permanent security solution.
There are hardly any drawbacks other than the back light on the keypad. Price consideration is also very reasonable and affordable. It is probably also the best among all the safes with similar size.
