    Excellent Product!! This case is heavy duty and easy to use. The Simplex lock is great!
    No need for batteries and the combo is easy to change. Highly recommended.

    After exhaustive research , I decided to purchase the Brute. It was disturbing to see how easily the competitions safes were opened. This case is super heavy-duty. Very solid and I like the fact that the lock is mechanical and NOT electronic. The independent reviews on the internet clearly showed that this case is tough and reliable. Looking forward to years of use.

    Nice product. Solid. Like it was made in USA. Nice capacity for my .45 ACP and clip. Room still for credit cards, Jewlery etc.
    I would have given 5 stars execpt for the following:
    I think lock numbers should go from 12345 instead of 54321 counter intuitive and could cause confusion in stress situation. Would have liked to have seen white numbers stamped under each pin. If cost is an issue get rid of that laser cut BRUTE logo and add the numbers. At least offer as an option. I solved my problem by putting numbered stickers under each pin.

    This is a well made, heavy duty safe. It came with two removable pluck foam panels along with a removable solid foam panel. Each panel seems to be around 1/4 inch thick if I had to guess. There is also foam attached to the inside of the lid as well. I wish there were mounting brackets for this, but it looks like all their brackets are for the other handgun safes. Honestly, this safe may be too heavy to go on a bracket anyway. I ran 1/4 inch steel cable through the 1/4 inch holes drilled in the bottom of the safe to allow me to attach the safe to the bed frame. You either have to cut the cable or dismantle the bed to get the safe. VLine, if you don’t offer a bracket for this safe, it would be nice to have two 1/4 inch holes drilled in the back of the safe for cable attachment and maybe even sell a cable attachment for this safe. Still, this is 5/5 stars for such quality.

  7. Alan C.

    The simplex lock and gas opening strut sets this safe above others. I keep the safe on my nightstand can have the safe open in about 3 seconds if needed. Best case on the market.

  8. Don Garcia

    I received this safe to secure my pistol at work. It was super heavy duty, easy to use and mounted in my office. Looking at several others, this was the best buy for the money and best of all, DOJ approved.

  9. Peter Garcia

    This safe is excellent!! I just received earlier today. Installed it very easily. It is a durable safe and heavy duty. It is very secure and I am
    Confident with locking my pistol inside it. Very happy!

    I’ve had my safe since the early part of December and have it secured to the floor with 1/4″x3″ tapcon screws. Haven’t had a bit of problems with the lock, gas strut. They work perfectly the safe is built like a tank. I’ve got two Sig Sauer pistols, magazines, two boxes of ammo, holster inside with no problems. If I get any more pistols then I’ll have to get another Brute to store it and accessories

  11. Kyle K.

    Very heavy duty case, packaged well and in great operating shape upon receipt. The deep door adds an extra layer of protection and ensures opening for theft will be very difficult. I am very happy to keep my guns that protect me and my family in a VLine safe so they are easily accessible, yet safe from theft and my kids.

  12. Anthony E.

    Very heavy, well-made safe. Easily secured it to the floor and it will definitely do the job. Love that it is made in the USA. I do think the lock numbers should go 12345 vs 54321, but that is a minor detail. Was extremely happy with customer service. I had an issue setting a new combo (totally my fault). Called customer service. Spoke with Michelle right away and was up and running in minutes. Michelle was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable.

    I recently bought a second ‘Brute’, so this should already tell you enough about how happy I am with the product.
    If you’ve read reviews about small safes, you probably know that this design is one of the few that is legitimately lockpick-proof.
    Most front door designs can be lockpicked in a matter of minutes, while this top-opening design (think of the classic “Fort Knox Gun Safe”) is much harder to open. The Brute improves on this simple, but effective design, with nice thicker metals, good quality materials and very smooth opening and closing.

    When I’ll need a third safe of this kind, i.e. small concealable safe, I’ll probably buy a third Brute…

    follow up review I bought this safe back in December and haven’t had a bit of problems with it, the gas strut hasn’t given me any problems. great product it holds two Sig Sauer a P220 full size in a holster and a P220R compact in a holster. with 6 magazines wish I could add a picture to show it

    I just received this lock box today. I was replacing an electronic lock box that quit working & could only be opened with a key. Yeah….there’s a reason a key is included with electronic locks.

    The first thing I learned when I picked this lock box up was why it’s called a “Brute.” It’s around 23 lbs & very well made. One of the features I like is the gas piston that helps it open & also keeps the heavy lid from slamming shut. This feature is found on other lock boxes, but it works better on this one at keeping the lid open. It’s a good thing it works well, because on this particular box, the lid does not open completely to a vertical position, which is OK. Inside the box, you will find three layers of removable foam padding to allow you to customize the interior the way you like it. I don’t want to have to push down the lid & compress the foam to close the box, so I removed two sheets of padding & it’s perfect.

    The bolt on this model is well designed; it’s a solid piece of metal, unlike the thin sheet-metal part on cheaper models. And it moves in & out of a precision-welded receptacle and when the box is locked, there is NO looseness & NO rattle. On the front of the lid, you will find a handy welded-on lip that makes it easy to open the box quickly. This feature was necessary because when the box is closed, the lid overlaps the bottom section almost completely, leaving 1/2 inch. Without that lip, it would be very difficult to open the box. This feature is not found on other similarly-priced lock boxes. The overlapping design (along with the precision fit), makes it very difficult to use a tool to pry open the box.
    Since all (or most) of these lock boxes use the same “Simplex” lock that I’m familiar with, it only took me a few seconds to change the combination. For those who are first-time purchasers, you must read & follow the directions very carefully before changing the combination, or you’ll end up with a locked box you can’t open.
    As for capacity, I easily fit my HK USP 45 – which is a large pistol, along with three extra magazines and a flashlight, with room to spare. If you’re wondering if a larger gun will fit, I also put my S&W 45 caliber revolver with a 5″ barrel in it & it also fit with room to spare.
    This product is money well spent!

    The BRUTE lives up to its name. This thing is a tank! The simplex lock is great, and easy to use. Make sure to write down your combination and keep it somewhere safe. There is no backup to unlock the safe. As for space it neatly fits my handguns and extra magazines. I have a Glock 19, a holstered Glock 26, and 1 spare mag per gun. I also put a small magnetic LED light on the inside back of the safe. When I open it the light turns on automatically. I believe you are getting what you pay for when buying the BRUTE. It’s competitors are biometric boxes that are shown all over the internet getting compromised by a paper clip. Look as it as an investment. Great product. I hope this helps someone. If you’re on the fence I really don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

  17. Matt Butts

    This safe is great! Well worth the money, fits my gun perfect… it’s heavy, well designed and the combination is easy to change…..I have it next to my nightstand.

  18. Scott Montgomery

    Just what I was looking for!
    A secure enclosure with a simple but proven lock system. No batteries to replace or cheap biometrics that fails! I’ve already recommended this product to all of my friends with children, as that was my primary concern!

  19. Edgar Maldonado

    This thing is a Tank! My number one priority was to keep my new handgun away from my kids and this will definitely do the trick. The heavy weight is perfect, the combination is mechanical so no batteries and the gas piston makes the heavy lid easy to open & also keeps the heavy lid from slamming shut. After all my research I got the best gun safe that exceedes all of my needs.

  20. Erik S.

    It is awesome. I love having my firearm locked up safe and easy to access. Locking mechanism seems to be high quality, and no batteries which is great.
