My second purchase of this safe
I first purchased this safe ten years ago. It needed to be repaced when the door hinges broke off. Ten year life is quite good.

Sentry Safe - Door Fell Off
Had mine for a year or so and the door just fell off. The hinges ripped right off the unit when I opened it.

Short Term Investment
I've owned other Sentry products for years and purchased this safe for a clients small office. I was sorry to have purchased this lower end unit. The main gear has stripped out (and replacement parts were shipped to us) but we have continued to have problems. Today I looked at the two floor models of this product in a store and found they both had the same issues we have had. I don't recommend this product if it will be used by multiple people. The handle needs to be "handled" just so or problems develop quickly. Unless you can unlock the safe there is no "fix" so it is a gamble that is not recommended.

I am very pleased with this safe. I have owned two Security safes in the past - one with a standard dial and one electronic model. The safe is well built and heavy enough to avoid having it moved easily. The delivery person was very helpful and brought the safe to the location I am going to use it in.
