Q. My safe doesn't have a key lock. What happens if the batteries run out for the keypad?

The battery compartment is located on the outside of the safe, so can be replaced even when the safe is locked.

Q. How is this safe fitted to the floor?

There are holes in the bottom of the fire safe which are closed with plastic plugs. Just remove the plugs, mark the position on the floor, remove the safe, drill holls, fit plugs (provided). Then move fire safe back into place and fit bolts (provided). The bolts provided are designed for use in concrete floors. For other types of floors you need to purchase different screws.

Q. I'm looking at the Phoenix 1262 Fireproof Safe and it lists "Overnight insurance rating: £2000 cash, £20000 valuables." What does that mean? I have never had insurance

These figures represent general recommendations by the manufacturers and accepted by insurance companies. This is only relevant when the safe and its rating has been requested by the insurance. However, they still offer a guidance for shoppers

Q. Your fire safe listing says "Paper Protection 60 minutes at 927 c". I assume that means without damage. Don't house fires generally burn longer than that?

Yes, houses certainly tend to burn longer. However, the hottest zone of the fire moves through the house, as the fire spreads. Again, this test result has to be seen in context. The safe is most likely on a floor where the temperature in a fire is the lowest. It is unlikely that the safe would ever be exposed to these sort of temperatures for any extended period of time. Nevertheless, the test values give you a good understanding about the resistance of each of the different fire safes on offer. In the tests, the fire safe goes into a furnace at theses temperatures, so its quite a tough testing regime.

Q. How do I change the code on my Phoenix 1262 safe?

To change the passcode of an EDL 77 electronic lock:

1. Press button C
2. Enter the current passcode (this may be the factory default 1,2,3,4 or a previously set user code of 4-16 digits)
3. Press button # (a melody will sound to confirm your code)
4. Turn the knob to open the lock
5. With the lock open, press the # button
6. Enter the code from step 2 (the default factory code 1,2,3,4 or previously set user code)
7. Press the # button
8. Enter a new 4-16 digit code
9. Press the # button.

Your code is now set to the one entered in step 8

Just a personal thing but I would prefer the fixing bolts inside the safe to be flush or countersunk to give a smooth base interior.

A good product at a reasonable price. Hopefully it will never have the ultimate test!

Solid, secure and simple to use. It uses normal AA batteries, which can be changed when the safe is closed. It's easy to use and change the code, and has more than enough space for my needs. The door has to be opened wider than I expected, so the safe needs about 1/2 it's width of extra space on the right side if placed near a wall.

the safe was a good size and held everything we wanted to put in and still had plenty more room left. There was a sliding shelf at the top of the safe to put in any money or valuables in, and a removable shelf in the middle. It was easy to change the security number and easy to open.
