I have been purchasing Vline products for nearly 10 years and have never had an issue. I just purchased my 7th unit for my motorhome and as always it functions flawlessly. Vline has always treated me very professionally and taken care of any issue that I’ve ever had (always my fault). On one of my first purchases I set a new combo and 8 months later completely forgot what it was, not only did they show me how to get into it but they also provided a brand new lock at cost. Very high end company NOTHING EVER MADE IN CHINA USA ALL THE WAY WITH VLINE. I have no doubt that I will continue to buy from Vline.
Thanks so much for your professionalism and for keeping the American Dream Alive.
Without a doubt the best safe i have ever owned. i didnt realize how heavy duty the safe was untill recieveing it. The safe itself is pretty heavy. Most importantly the foam inside the case is so thick on (top & bottom) that it prevents the gun and seperate mag from moving around(EVEN IF YOU SHAKE IT)!! pretty neat, PS: read instructions carefully in the beginning before attempting to fiddle with it.
Perfect size for a pistol and ammo. Very reliable locking mechanism. A serious theif could get into it in under 60 seconds with hammer and prybar, but I don’t think it was ever designed or marketed to prevent that. I just need it to keep the kids out. I love that I can set any combination. One reviewer noted that the knob and buttons seemd a bit loose. Somewhat, true. But most of this type of lock have a good amount of play. At work we have a number of doors with these push button mechanisms, and they’re all loose. Best part is that it’s a purely mechanical lock. I simply don’t want to reach for my gun in a crisis after all these decades with it under my bed only to find in the dark of night that the batteries are dead–as could happen with locking mechanisms that require any amount of power to work. This lock is very doable by touch alone, and quick.
Does what it needs to do. I use this to keep my young kids out of my weapons and this box does the trick. Will this keep someone from being able to pry open with a large crowbar? No, but you can’t expect that from a product like this. This box is clean, does not come with any solvent smells like some other security boxes I have purchased (foam padding in some other purchases) and is easy to set the combo. If you need to keep kids out of your stuff or deter theft than this is the box for you. If you need a box that provides much tighter security then you need to jump up to a full safe that costs $300-$400 bucks. I would buy another one of these as I am very satisfied with the purchase and would recommend it for its intended purpose.
I obsess over topics. I spend days reviewing and find the exact perfect thing I want. I did the same for pistol safes for my nightstand. I looked at several electronic combination lock safes– they all have the problem of failing batteries. When batteries fail, what do you do? Some have a backup key. But the point in having a combination is not to have a key around that your kid can find, right??? So there goes that. Some have external battery or AC Adapter connectors, but funny things happen when you short-circuit them: they go back to the default combinations. Ouch!
This one is very well built, takes no batteries (entirely mechanical), and fits in a drawer. What more can you want? This one is the best.
UPDATE: I like this so much that when we go on long trips, this gets brought along. It’s just small enough to fit in my backpack with my laptop and other things I usually take, and really appreciate being able to stay armed, yet comply with laws by having this around wherever we go. I’m thinking about getting a second one as a backup or for another room in the house.
I use this case to keep my handgun secure but readily accessible. I chose it over some of the other gun safes because it has less moving parts, and no electronics, and I can quickly and reliably gain access to my pistol, while keeping it safely out of reach the kids.
Changing the combination wasn’t particularly difficult, but it did take a couple of tries, so be sure to try your combination several times before closing it and locking it.
The construction is very solid, and is well designed to prevent prying or forced entry, and is pre-drilled for mounting to the floor.
While it is fairly spacious, with the pre-installed foam I found it difficult to close if I put a stack of papers in with my firearm, so I opted for just the handgun and its magazines, and moved the papers to the fireproof safe.
It opens quietly, and is easy to open by feel in the dark.
