Externally a very solid key safe with good storage space.

The instructions for setting the code are poor. You are provided with a piece of cardboard for turning the dials to set the code. This bends and comes apart after a couple of uses and the plastic dials are so weak that they are easily damaged if you try to use anything else to turn them. I purchased this key safe for a holiday cottage and want to regularly change the code to prevent large numbers of people having access to the keys. Considering this is meant to be the highest security key safe on the market internally it is of very poor quality and is not robust enough to change the code on a frequent basis. It is now jammed in the open position and I have bought a cheaper but far more robust safe to replace it. An expensive mistake and I would not recommend the product.

Easy to use and strong. Less secure than if the four digits had to be entered in a certain order.

Very sturdy construction. Even the carers said it was the best one they had seen on their rounds in looking after the elderly and infirm.Capacity of key chamber is more than adequate for the two front door keys. A failing with some other makes.

Since most doors and windows today are white uvpc, I did think that a white rubber cover option for the safe would be good. It would blend in better with adjacent fittings

The lock was fairly straight forward to fit, but it would help to know in advance th size of drill needed for the fixing holes. Once fitted it iss easy and secure to use.

Used for vulnerable person with carers visiting regularly.

No fiddly knobs to turn.

Froze up in the really cold weather recently. This may have been the carers not closing the external cover whilst visiting.

This seems to be a great product. We use it to allow guests access to our house when we're out. It seems very secure, and there haven't been any problems with people working out how to use it. I struggled somewhat with fitting it, but that might have been the particular brickwork I was putting it...

Product installed , template supplied really helped in positioning the unit (i.e. to line it up to where to drill on the bricks). Been in operation for 3 months and works really well without an issue

The product was perfect. I gave 9 out of 10 for storage only because aunty's key's were on the large side and I changed key rings to fit them in which was fine.

Questions & Answers

Q
I am interested in the C500 for domestic use. However, I have read that push button systems are limited in that the right buttons but pressed in the any order will allow access..... 12345, 54321 and 45231 etc will all allow access. Is this the case with this key safe? Thanks
Keith
A
Yes, this is the case. It is called non-sequential PIN entry and means your chosen PIN code can be entered in any order providing the correct digits are used.

This system applies to all mechanical push button locks. The only alternative is a Dial Combo Lock Key Safe. The lock is similar to a bike lock with a PIN that must be entered in sequence.
Anthony N, 2 May 2014
Q
I need a key safe that will hold 6 keys, will this one do?
N Ladzrie
A
This depends on what design and length keys you wish to store inside the unit. This particular key safe will accommodate 5-6 Yale type design key's.
Tom W, 10 Jun 2014
Q
What tools are required for installation? I read somewhere that this needs a non-standard screwdriver.
Annette Harris, London
A
The C500 Key Safe is supplied with a masonry mounting kit that includes 4 heavy-duty sleeveless screws. You will need a 5mm masonry drill bit and a Torx T30 screwdriver to complete the installation.
Jonathan P, 29 Jul 2014
Q
Can the combination number be changed? So, after each user the number is changed so the last user can't get access again.
Clare, London
A
The code can be changed and is easy to do. Once the code has been changed the previous access code will become obsolete. If you are worried about unauthorised code changes, you can add an Anti-Tamper Code Cover to your order, meaning only you will be able to change the code by removing the code cover with a small screwdriver.
