LockSafe Biometric Pistol Safe in Review
Being able to have multiple people access your fingerprint gun safe can be a huge time saver. There is obviously some worry about people using this personal access for malicious reasons, but for the most part it just makes things easier. The LockSafe Biometric Pistol Safe can recognize up to 10 different fingerprints. Perfect for a family of hunters.
The safe itself weighs 22 lbs, which is heavier than most models that are similar in construction. The safe is black in color and measures
- 10.24″ (D)
- 4.57″ (H)
With these dimensions you can comfortably fit 2 hand guns inside of the unit. The interior comes with foam padding. Perfect for preventing your hand guns from becoming scratched or damaged. It is incredibly hard to penetrate this safe because it is made with 9 gauge steel. This is approximately 3mm in thickness. Most gun safes are built with 12 gauge steel.
Obviously one of the main concerns is the weight of the safe. As stated earlier, weighing in at 22 lbs, it is really easy to pick up and run with. To counter this LockSafe has implemented 4 pre-drilled, mounting holes that allow you to secure it to any flat surface. Whether it’s in a home, garage or even an office.
Biometric can still have its downsides. And normally this is with the hardware of the device malfunctioning. Although it is not reported at all of the device breaking down, 2 back up keys have been included for you just in case.
To get best results from the fingerprint scanner, make sure you have clean hands. Any debris on your finger tip(s) can cause the device to not work as intended. Scars on your finger tips can also prevent the device from functioning properly. Unfortunately, the Biometric Pistol Safe does beep after being opened. This can be problematic if a home invasion is happening inside of your home.
Our final thoughts
The Biometric Pistol Safe comes with a 30 day customer guarantee and a 1 year limited warranty. Meaning you can return the safe if you are unsatisfied within 30 days. And the warranty allows you to have the safe replaced should it be damaged.
If you need a reliable biometric safe that includes a back up key, this is an excellent choice. The extra weight and solid 9 gauge steel construction absolutely provide enhanced security. If you thought 10 finger print recognition meant storing a gun for everyone, it’s going to prove to be a little on the small side. Still, 2 guns storage is about right for the dimensions. A tip from a customer worthy of sharing is to save fingerprints from both hands. Even using your wife’s fingerprints is a good idea. If you are down and out with an injury, she can still access the guns with problem. We at TossTheKey came to find the Biometric Pistol Safe works great and exactly as intended.
