I was looking for a fireproof, waterproof safe to hold our familys wills, real estate papers which are legal size and larger size photos. This safe fills those requirements. Additionally i can fit a shoebox filled with memories inside as well. A shoe box size is 13×8″ and still have half the safe for other documents. It is lightweight and much easier to carry than our heavier sentry safe. I will being buying another one of these.
