    How would you get it open if the batteries failed while locked?

    My batteries are on the outside of the safe behind the keypad. there is also a keyhole behind the keypad, in case the electronics fail.

    I have the Pro Vault 24 with dial lock. Awesome starter safe and you definitely get a crap ton of safe for the price

    I took the batteries out of one safe with an electronic keypad and hooked up a 6 volt wall wart converter. It never needs batteries now.

    You trash the electronic locks and don't even realize how they work?


    FWIW, I have electronic locks on all three of my safes and couldn't be happier.

    If you get one that says it has a lifetime warranty, check first to see that it really means "lifetime"! I bought a Cannon 20+ years ago and it did fine until about five years ago and it decided it just would not open. Got my paperwork out and got in touch with Cannon. He said I'd have to pay for a locksmith to come out, Nope, I said, I'm reading here from your literature that says .............. "anything" that goes wrong will be covered by our magnificent warranty. Argued for a while then decided to give up on this clown. A friend and I finally got it open. Cleaned up the dial works (since it was now open) and tried it several times and it has worked every time since then. Beware of Cannon's non-existent lifetime warranty.

    I haven't changed the batteries in mine yet.
    Been so long, I ain't sure how old it is.
    Over 7 years for sure.
    It worked fine yesterday.
    I know where the backup key is.

    I ain't too worried about having an electronic keypad .
