Purchased this item to compliment larger safe kept upstairs. These days my wife has difficulty climbing the stairs, so this one is kept downstairs for such items as regularly used, such as credit cards and loose cash papers. It supplies us with not only security but convenience also. How often have you laid a document down in a safe place, only to realise that the place is so safe you cannot find it again. With this safe you come back from shopping and just pop your credit cards, spare cash, receipts etc into the safe via the slot. You don’t even have to open it. Somewhere safe, convenient, easily accessible. Peace of mind at a very moderate price. Just remember not to keep the spare keys in the safe.
