SentrySafe DH109E, Depository Safe (Black) in Review

Get the security you’re looking for, in your home or in your business, with Sentry Safe’s Depository Safe. This simply designed and easy to use safe is perfectly sized to fit discretely into any space. It does not require much room nor is it noticeable due to it’s dark black color. Sentry Safe proudly makes all of their products in the United States. Family owned for more than 3 generations, they’re the name you can trust with protecting your valuables and irreplaceable items.

Program multiple combos

If you’re planning on using this safe for your business, a great feature it has is the ability to program more than one combination for different users. “Why would anyone want to do that?” If one employee leaves the company, or no longer needs access to the safe, it’s simple to change just one combination. Rather than have everyone relearn a new one.

The safe can take a beating

It may be small, but that doesn’t mean it can’t take a good beating. With three steel live locking bolts, the 12mm solid steel door is heavy duty and pry-resistant.  One very satisfied Amazon customer pointed out that, after 2 home invasions, the burglars couldn’t get into her Sentry Safe Depository Safe – even after giving it a good beating. Her valuables were kept safe and secure, despite their efforts. That kind of security and peace of mind is priceless. It is a small sized safe. So for added security, it comes with bolts to fix it right to the floor. Weighing just over 100lbs, it is possible to lift and move. Securing it to the floor means it will not be going anywhere.

Complete access not necessary

You may not want to let all of your employees have access into the safe. With this safe, that’s completely possible, while still allowing them to deposit cash and valuables.  The anti-fish hopper lets anyone drop in end of day cash outs, or anything else that should be kept secure. Without the need to open the safe door. This feature is great just for the convenience factor. It helps you avoid unnecessarily opening and closing the safe. When all you need to do is deposit something into it.

On the downside, the instructions included with this safe can be somewhat confusing in the way they’re written. The set up itself is easy, but following these instructions is a little difficult. Your best bet is to take your time, be patient, and go through them slowly. Another criticism of this safe is that the batteries that come with it don’t last very long. This can be frustrating if the batteries die while the safe is locked. To avoid this, simply replace them right away with high quality, long lasting batteries.

The Verdict On The Sentry Safe Depository Safe

Overall, the Sentry Safe DH109E Depository Safe is a quality product, and a great value for the price. The few small criticisms are easy fixes, and the positive features definitely outweigh the slight downsides. You can’t put a price tag on peace of mind, but you can definitely get that peace of mind with this durable safe.
