One of Amazon’s exclusive safes, the AmazonBasics Home Safe 1.20 Cubic Feet offers a great price for keeping your valuable documents, money, jewelry and other valuables secure. The safe has a shelf that helps with organizing and putting more personal belongings inside. When it comes to security, it features heavy-duty carbon steel which is hard to break through and pry-resistant hinges that make it harder to pry open the safe. It can be opened with an electronic keypad or a back-up key. The floor inside is carpeted and the interior will not get scratched. The safe also comes with 4 pre-drilled holes for mounting on a wall or the floor and the hardware necessary for mounting it.
Keep in mind that the safe isn’t fireproof or waterproof, which can be expected when the safe is being sold at a low price. The keypad does not have any backlight and it may make it harder to unlock it at night. Don’t forget to buy some batteries, it uses 4 AA batteries.
Features of the AmazonBasics Home Safe 1.20 Cubic Feet
- Exterior dimensions 13 x 13 x 14.2 inches (L x W x H)
- Interior dimensions 12.8 x 10.6 x 14 inches (L x W x H) which offers enough space for documents, money and even handguns.
- Carpeted interior floor – prevents the interior and the items stored inside from getting scratched.
- Durable construction – built from heavy-duty carbon. The pry-resistant hidden hinges offer great security, preventing thieves from getting inside.
- Interior shelf – helps with organizing and putting more items inside. The shelf is also removable, which is useful if you want to store larger things inside.
- Electronic locking mechanism and back-up keys – the safe is unlocked by a simple programmable electronic keypad. It also comes with 2 back-up keys when you can not unlock it normally ( batteries running low, forgotten passcode).
- Stylish design – available with a 4-point mounting design (bolts included), this safe has a black outer painting which fits your interior decor especially when it is mounted on the wall, shelf or floor. In addition, the security is increased because a thief cannot simply take the whole safe away. Even though on the picture above you can see 4 holes on the back side only, there are another 4 holes in the bottom, so you can mount it to the floor as well.
The AmazonBasics Home Safe is a great low-cost option for storing your valuables somewhere safe. While it doesn’t have all the special features like its more expensive competitors, it is better than having nothing at all. Useful for hiding stuff away from children. In addition to the 1.20 cubic feet version, you can also buy a larger 1.52 or 1.80 cubic feet version. They all have the same properties, only different sizes.
