How much does it weigh? 140 lbs
What is it made out of? The vault is constructed with a double wall design. 16 gauge cold rolled steel is the minimum thickness used with an additional 12 gauge plate welded to the 16 gauge drawer front to create total thickness of .16 inch ( well over 1/8th inch). The effective thickness for the top and bottom is 11 gauge (.12"or 1/8 inch) and the effective thickness of the sides is 7 gauge (.18" well over 1/8 inch).
What is the finish coating? Black powder coating inside and out (only color option at this point)
Is there a lining in the bottom of the safe? Yes. There is a felt liner made of the same material used in trunk liner in a car (polypropylene).

What are the dimensions?
What type of batteries? 4 AA Alkaline
How do I mount it? 3/8" mounting holes are provided in all four corners of the bottom of the case. Fasteners are not included. A universal vehicle mounting kit is available.

How many digits for the code? You choose a minimum of 3 plus A or B and up to a maximum of 8 plus A or B.
Is there a warranty? Yes, it is warranted for 7 years against defects.
Can it be hung from the top? Yes, several customers have chosen to drill mounting holes in the top and hang it with appropriate hardware.
Is it “Fireproof"? We looked carefully at adding an insulation layer to the MonsterVault to provide fire protection. In the end, the experts we consulted recommended against it. The reasoning was because our product lies on the floor, it is the coolest place in a fire. Secondly, the mattress sitting on top of our product will be by law, non-flammable and a very good insulator against reflected heat off the walls or ceiling. This was compelling enough for us to design our product without insulation. Two things we learned in this process that I like to pass on to customers looking for a fire safe. First, if you are planning to protect documents, I was advised that a document safe is the only way to go. A general purpose safe with items like firearms can have the effect of damaging or destroying paper items in high heat because of interactions with gunpowder, oil or other accelerants. Second, if you are storing any paper (cash, documents) and want them to be fire safe in anything but a document safe, the paper should be in a fireproof, waterproof bag.
Is it waterproof? No, The body is powder coated so moisture is not a concern but the electronics would be affected negatively by immersion.
Can it be installed on end? Yes, it has been designed to operate on end as well as flat on the floor.
Does it come assembled? Yes, install batteries (not included) and it is ready to go. Vehicle style handles are a user installed option that requires use of a 1/8” allen wrench.
How long does the battery last and does it beep when the battery is low? Our experience is that the battery should last 3-4 years with average use indoors. A light on the keypad comes on when the battery is low.
Do you offer a backlit keypad? Our primary goal is to ensure that you can open your vault when it is needed most. If the batteries run low, the vault may not open with the keypad. To ensure the longest possible battery life and minimize the chances of a low battery situation, we chose not to power a light in the keypad. Most customers will get 3-4 years out of batteries for in-home use and that will, of course, vary greatly based on the number of times the lock is activated. If the concern is the ability to see the keypad in the dark, we feel that the best solution is a separate light source not connected to the lock mechanism. There are a variety of magnetic safe lights available. We recommend a low profile light that can be placed on the face of the vault to illuminate the key pad and also be moved to the interior to see the contents of the vault like this one https://www.libertysafe.com/products/security-safe-lock-light and is private labeled for several companies. It casts a red glow that provides enough light to see what is needed without interfering with your night vision.
