Model P1EF, Deluxe Quick-Access Firearm Safety Device (Biometric)

Whoever oversaw the development of this AmazonBasics product did a good job of avoiding most of the design mistakes I tend to come across in these devices. Though inexpensive and made in China, this safe is reasonably well made. The one security issue I found can be easily remedied by simply moving the reset button inside the battery compartment.

Model PS75EF, Quick-Access Firearm Safety Device

This AmazonBasics product has few of the design mistakes I find built into these devices. Unfortunately, either the initial Firearms Safety Device testing was done poorly, or the manufacturer substituted a component in the fabrication process since initial approval, leaving the device I examined unable to pass a simple dropping test.
