Don't worry, if your safe won't open you can get into pretty much anything made of 16-18ga steel with a cutoff wheel in minutes...maybe a couple hours with a hack saw. Most "fire" resistant safes simply have gypsum slabs, aka sheetrock, between the outer steel and inner liner...hence the RESISTANT label rather than fire proof. Short of something made by a bank vault manufacturer...I have yet to see a safe that couldn't be destroyed or broken into with some ingenuity. Maybe some of the units with multi thousand dollar price tags...but that's out of my league.

I work with enough electronic enabled security to know that a manual backup is a must. I would never own a safe that did not have a physical manual override.

Mine has old fashioned dial and a key to lock the dial. Have a glitch every now and then where end up dialing it twice till it opens.
