Biometric Technology

The absolute best feature of this safe, is that it has the ability to remember up to 32 unique fingerprints for ease of access. With this feature, you will never again have to type in a 4-digit code to get to your belongings – just a swipe of your finger and the safe opens.  From reviews online, biometric safes (of any brand) are sensitive, so storing fingerprints at several angles can be useful in enhancing the accuracy of the safe.

Construction and Additional Features

The safe does require batteries, which are included with the initial purchase. Aside from fingerprint technology, the safe has great mobility. It’s small enough to use while traveling, or to move around the house. There are pre-drilled holes in the safe so that it can be easily mounted on a wall, but it is recommended that when storing firearms the safe be bolted to the floor.

Customer Reviews

Several customers are raving about this gun safe, commenting on its price, quality, and ease of use. Commenting on the solid steel safe, Amazon reviewer Karen Fletcher says the safe was “made of good quality.” Another user, masonm75, comments that the Stack-On PS-10-B is the “best safe for the money.”

Among the very few unhappy customers, the biggest complains are about disappointment with the biometrics feature, but any inconsistency seems to be resolved with scanning fingers multiple times. John Clark “JC” comments that the sensor is “very inconsistent,” but still praises the overall quality of the safe. Along the same lines, CASEY R EARL gives a five-star rating, but jokes that for users to “program your thumb in like 4 times” saying if you do this it will “work every time.”
