Summary of the Gunvault GV2000S Gun Safe
Gunvault designs some great quality safes, and in addition to the standard model, you will find both a mini and deluxe model. This is a review of the features found on the standard model.
On first glance, the gun safe looks small and feels lightweight – it is. But it has a great capacity for such a small gun safe that not only improves its usefulness but its safety too.
The safe can be mounted pretty much anywhere by placing bolts through the holes. This means that no matter what space you wish to keep safe, it can be left securely in position.
The interior is lined with foam, and although it is not incredibly thick, it is strong and unlikely to damage under normal use.
The combination system the safe uses differ from other combination safes. It can learn up to 12 million unique access codes, where you position your fingers on the four buttons.
This combination system tricks up many people. There is a way to do it correctly, and by following the manufacturer’s instructions, you can ensure you do it the right way. It is worth ensuring that you know how to access the safe as opposed to in an emergency situation.
There are some other things to note. There is no light inside the safe so it is best to have a torch handy in the dark.
As is the case with all electric safes, this one has a chance of failing. There is a 9-volt battery required. The safe also has audio feedback. Personally, I am not a fan of audio feedback, but this may be an advantage for others.
Although it is not fire rated, you are protected by Gunvault 5 year fire and burglary warranty which can give you peace of mind. The safe will also alert you when failed attempts to access the safe is made – a very handy feature to have.
This is the perfect safe for simple home security and for keeping guns away from children.
