Durable construction, protection against theft, water, and fire, and a reliable dial combination lock make this safe a sure bet.
Fireproof for an hour at 1,700 degrees, waterproof in up to eight inches of water, and drop resistant from a 15-foot height, the Sentry safe can take a beating. Six locking bolts protect this safe’s two-cubic-foot interior.
Like any sturdy safe, this one is heavy. Some reviewers commented on the Sentry’s nearly 125-pound weight.
Paragon Lock and Safe
Electronic Wall, Hidden
A great safe for protecting jewelry, important documents, money, or other valuables, without consuming a lot of space.
This safe can be mounted inside of a wall, making it a discreet way to hide valuables. The door can be unlocked with either a keypad or a physical key.
The dimensions are only 14 x 4 x 19 inches, which means some larger items may not fit.
Unlocking with the touch of a finger, users can secure sensitive valuables like firearms or prescriptions confidently with exclusive access.
Stores up to 120 different fingerprints and mounts inside of walls, which means this safe can be hidden behind mirrors or artwork.
Lacks the fireproof and waterproof protection of some more hardy safes.
Wall, w/ Electronic Lock
Another easily-hidden wall safe that opens with electronic keypad access. Designed for firearms, the Stack-On safe meets California’s strict requirements.
Many reviewers praised this safe’s easy installation, because it fits between studs in standard 16-inch on-center studded walls. A recessed door makes this safe nearly flush with the wall.
In addition to not being fire or waterproof, this model is the smallest we reviewed.
Electronic Wall Safe
The Protex is a reliable safe that can be purchased with either a keypad or biometric lock.
Reviewers rave about this safe’s ease of installation, spring-loaded door, external battery door, and LED lights. At .4 cubic feet of storage space, this model is fairly large for an in-wall safe.
Slightly more expensive than some of its competitors.
