They also manufacture safes, metal detectors, jewelry boxes, and many other assorted items. The BARSKA biometric wall safe is an excellent edition to the pristine reputation the BARSKA company currently holds.

Dimensions and Capacity

barska fingerprint wall safe openThe BARSKA wall safe is ideal for holding pistols, personal items, and important documents for safe keeping. This safe would make a great addition for a home office, or place of business for storing valuables out of sight. The safe’s outer dimensions are 15.5 inches x 3.73 inches x 20.73 inches. The safe’s inner dimensions are 13.75 inches x 3.00 inches x 19.00 inches. This safe has a relatively large capacity as compared to other biometric safes, and weighing in at almost thirty pounds, has a distinct heft to it. However, this safe is not large enough to hold larger firearms like rifles.

Biometric Fingerprint Technology

The BARSKA biometric wall safe features no-hassle fingerprint technology. This feature allows users to store up to 120 unique fingerprints. This feature is a wonderful addition, as it allows safe users an easier and speedier access to the contents within the safe. By simply swiping a pre-programmed fingerprint, the safe immediately opens gaining access to what is inside.

Construction and Other Features

I can see endless possibilities with storage in this safe and removable shelves are always a plus in my book. The safe is made entirely of steel, leaving it very sturdy in structure. This safe, like most similar safes, is not fireproof.

Wall safes can be made very discreet, and they are easy to hide behind decorative wall hangings, making them much less likely to be found and therefore harder to break into. Another great feature of this safe is that it comes with two coded keys in case of battery or some other type of system failure. This is an imperative necessity with a battery operated safe like this one. The BARSKA wall safe runs conveniently off of 4-AA batteries. The safe comes with pre-drilled holes and mounting hardware, and a 1-year limited warranty.

Amazon Reviews

barska wall safe profile viewAt the time of this article, there are 6 reviews on Amazon — all 4 and 5-stars.  These customers shared some very insightful commentary on the product. One listed review is from amazon user Scott M. Hanlin. Hanlin provides mostly positive commentary and first thing refers to the biometric aspect of the safe as “great technology.” Later, he comments that he has not had “any issues with the biometric reader,” which is an excellent tidbit because sometimes biometric fingerprint readers can be pesky. Overall, the BARSKA wall safe looks like a great purchase for those interested in a small personal wall safe.


The Protex fingerprint wall safe has similar specs and is also well-reviewed, though is priced slightly higher at this time.
