This small safe is good for keeping important things out of harms way in the event your home becomes damaged. It is not reliable enough for theft protection because it can be grabbed and the lock picked later. Its good to keep documents in or small items away from the elements. Its small and light and easy to hide. I keep smaller items in this for safe keeping but my valuables go into my large gun safe that can't be stolen or broken into. If you just want safe storage this is good to have but if you want to keep valuables safe this probably isn't a good choice because it's more ment for fire and water protection.
