Sentry Safe

Sentry Safe Quick Access Pistol Safe, QAP1E

I first examined the Quick Access Pistol Safe in February, 2016, and re-examined it a year later to see if any improvements had been made. As this video shows, the safe can still be accessed with a piece of metal shim, and the safe is vulnerable even if it is bolted down. This safe was examined May 16, 2017.

Bulldog Vaults BD1060

This handgun safe is the second in Bulldog Vaults’ line of standard digital vaults. It has the same locking mechanism and the same defectively designed keypad as the BD 1050. The only difference between this safe and the smaller one is storage capacity. This safe was examined October 3, 2016. Note: This safe also has an updated keypad.

Sentry Safe Quick Access Pistol Safe, QAP1BE

The biometric version of the Quick Access Pistol Safe is nearly identical to the standard model, the only difference being the fingerprint reader. All the design flaws of the standard model remain intact. As a result, the housing for the locking mechanism leaves a gap that can be exploited with a metal shim, and I was able to reach in with a steel cable tie to bump the release. This safe was examined June 9, 2017.

Sentry Safe X055

This is a typical personal safe with solenoid-locked bolts inside. For unknown reasons, the circuitry design allows three LEDs to extend from within the safe to the exterior of the keypad through holes in the safe’s door. Never a good idea to put holes in a safe’s door. This safe was examined January 6, 2019.
