    Fireproof Box

    I want one, but the reviews I read online say they're all crap. The locks are flimsy and often break after a couple of uses.

    I don't want a safe, just a smallish box to store papers and other things in. Small enough to go under my floorboards but it has to be fireproof and waterproof. (Some reviews talk about how the boxes build up condensation and everything inside gets mildew -- WTF!).

    Do any of you own such a thing? Give me brand name and serial number and if you've encountered any of the problems above.

      I have a Walmart fire safe bolted down to the top of a gun cabinet. It's been there for five years with no problems so far. I probably open it a few times a month.

            I'd agree with Woods on the Sentry brand. Can be found for 20-50 at WM or Amazon. Waterproof and fireproof with a guarantee. No problem with mildew, condensation, or anything else. Used one for years without an issue. Would still be using it if I didn't buy an old, antique safe I found at a sale.

              They aren't hard to break into with hand tools but they provide some protection to things you don't want burned in a fire.

                Yeah if you don't bolt them down they can be opened fairly easily by dropping on their corners. (or so I am told.)

                    Thank you guys. I mostly want it for fire protection but I could be opening and closing it frequently.

                    Anymore Amazon is full of worthless Chinese crap so I always read the reviews before shopping. On this subject, there were no favorable reviews

                      I have a few old coins and one ounce silver bars as well as some titles. I also keep my Ruger 22/45 in there.

                        I opened one for a family member with a crescent wrench to lift the piece that covers the seam between the lid and base at the latch and then jamming a flat head screw driver in to force the latch out of place.

                          OK. Wanted to know first place to check.
