Master Lock 5-Key Combination Key Safe
OK but better products availab
I run a holiday letting business, so have over 50 key safes in use every week. I started off using this product and its works fairly well, however it could be better.
Firstly the mechanism takes up well over half the space inside, this means you cannot put a hook inside to hang the key, if you use a key ring, its really difficult to shut the case as it takes up too much room, so you end up putting a bare key in the safe, OK for emergencies, but not handy for guests to use all week.
Next the mechanism can occasionally jam, probabaly once in every 50 goes. There is a trick to un-jaming (push lever firmly up with combo set) but before I learned this I was regularly having to break them open.
I still have a lot of these going stronjg, but have gone onto using better models for new requirements

Great Key Safe
I've purchased a few of these master lock 5 key combination key safes in the past.
I fit them for my customers but i've also fitted one at my place & my grandparents who are elderly. It gives peace of mind for them if they have a fall or are unable to get to the door. I purchased 2 recently as they were reduced so a bargain! Excellent product. Robust waterproof secure and easy to use

Word of warning
I had one of these on my new house wall which i didn't know the combination to. A quick look on google and it shows you how to break into one and it's Very easy! It took me around 10 mins to gain access but with practice i am sure a burglar could take a couple of minutes. I used a cut up soft drink can for the tool. So please be careful, I would advise putting it somewhere out of view if you still want to use one. And this warning applies to any combination lock.

2nd One Works Great
The first I purchased seemed tight when I tried it before fitting to the wall. Couldn't open it without levering it open. The door was far too tight in the opening.
Quick replacement was provided and the second one works perfectly. The screws provided are poor quality. I'd score it 4 stars overall if the first one had been okay.
