Hornady RAPiD-Safe #98150


This handgun safe is designed by Hornady and manufactured in China. The structural oversight in the framework of this device, which I exploit in this video, is probably the result of sloppy production practices in the Chinese outfit fabricating these safes. To confirm that I had not uncovered an anomaly, I tested another two RAPiD safes and was able to break into the others in the same way demonstrated in the video here. This safe was first examined April 27, 2015.

Hornady RAPiD-Safe #98150 UPDATED DESIGN


Since my examination of the original RAPiD-Safe, Hornady Security addressed an issue that left the safe vulnerable to attack; I found a gap in housing of the original device that I was able to exploit with a paperclip. But the problem needing to be solved wasn’t that there was a gap in the framework, but that there cannot be extraneous holes that might allow access to the release. As can be seen in my follow-up examination, Hornady addressed my 2015 finding while leaving the safe vulnerable to attack. This safe was examined March 7, 2017.
