Password safe is loussy

Just found out that my safe is less secure than butter in the sun.
https://youtu.be/hcYB9ceiAiY
This is the safe --->http://www.biltema.se/BiltemaDocuments/Manuals/87-789_man.pdf

I did disable the panel and placed a bigger spring that the 9volt panel couldint unlock.
And the key, yeah the lossy key that a three years old child could pick.

The question, has anyone modded their safe to be more secure? and how in that case?
whats the best lock I can buy that is pretty hard to pick?

Best regards P

Re: Password safe is loussy

If that's the *cough* "safe" *cough* you are working with. You'd be better off replacing it with something that at a minimum has 1/4" steel body. And even that's not much of a safe. If you want a real safe look for one with a UL TL-15 or better rating.

If you really want to upgrade your box. Put a hasp and padlock on it.

Just saw that you are in Sweden. UL is an American safety consulting and certification company. I don't know what safe certifications to look for in Sweden.

Re: Password safe is loussy

I wouldn't call this a safe , more of a lunchbox.
These come with a number of different brand names , but all the same electronics.
They rarely take me longer than a minute to open.
Even if you struggle to pick them (some come with tubular locks) , you can acces the reset button through the mounting holes.
Trust me , I'm a locksmith

Re: Password safe is loussy

If you want a safe, look for something with at least Euro 1 category. It allows 10 kEUR to be stored in and has some actual protection to it rather than those cheap sardine cans that your current one is.

Re: Password safe is loussy

I had one of those "safes" that I used just to keep people from tapering with my things.

My coworker had opened it for a customer, and they decided they wanted to upgrade, so I removed the old lock, drilled a hole, and added a tubular lock that would block the linkage inside. It still had the old holes in it, but it worked to keep my things from walking off.

I'll look to see if I have some photos of it

Re: Password safe is loussy

Here's what I did. Again it's not a safe, but it works. I could have covered the old holes, but they didn't really bother me.

Re: Password safe is loussy

That was a good upgrade =)
I got two locks now, but the orginal pinlock is crap.
