Rated 2 out of 5 by from Button cable breaks over time I've had this gun vault for probably 8 years. Mine works with 4 AA batteries. I see it's now a 9 volt battery. There's a ribbon cable that runs underneath the padding across the hinge. Over time this cable will break. I'd say mine lasted about 2 years. I've been forced to use the key to open it. The push buttons should be mounted to the base and not go up with the lid. A very easy design fix. If you're only using this to keep your gun safe from kids, you're fine. If you want this bedside in case an intruder comes in, better have a key handy. I would not rely on the keypad in an emergency situation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT PURCHASE This is the second GunVault product I have purchased. The first GunVault product was the MiniVault Biometic. It is a great product! So I decided to purchase the MicroVault. After about 6 months the biometric release function stopped working and will not work at all. I must use a key to open the vault, which is fine unless I need access to the firearm in this vault in an emergency. I honestly feel like GunVault needs to issue a recall for this product as I have read other people have had this same problem.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only Works With a Key! Purchased a few years ago and it worked fine for the first two. After that the safe never opened again using the code. I would enter the code, green light indicates correct input, but nothing happens. Installed brand new batteries, but still nothing. I’ve just resorted to using the key the past couple years. Although I’ve gotten to the point that I’m going to just buy a new safe altogether. From reading other reviews, this seems to be an ongoing issue that has not gotten the attention it deserves from the manufacturer. Will not buy from this company again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dealing with a problem known by GunVault I purchased an MV500 less than a year ago. The device unlocked and opened as it should up until now. Although the device is a hassle to raise up the lid, as it does not have a handle to open. You must put your finger nails under the edge of the lid. Anyway, today the device "clicked" with correct code entry, but the lid did not release. Used the key to open, changed batteries, reset the code. Again, a click but no lid release. At this price point: I removed the battery, got a small Phillips screwdriver, and removed the 2 internal cover screws to expose the inner workings. It appears the motor does not provide enough torque to the action bar to pull down the control arm to release the locking hook. I replaced the battery and, using the code, cycled the system several times to confirm this. The system unlocks as it should if I turn the motor flywheel with my fingertips. This is what happens when you buy a product before reading the reviews because the product is inexpensive. Glad it didn't fail when I really needed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety in a small package I bought the microvault to tote my 9mm pistol and an extra clip. It slips perfectly under the passenger seat of my vehicle and is tethered to the metal seat base with the supplied cable. I’m able to quickly stow away my ccw (holster & all) where the 30.06 sign is displayed. It’s also the perfect size to take along when traveling in hotel stays to keep my pistol safely away from kids yet accessible in seconds if the need arises. Beyond that, it’s pretty sexy, too! Form & function that holds up against the test of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Semper Fidelis!!! So I bought this for my oldest daughter and she loves it!!! She use to use it for her home defense to keep next to her bed,but now she uses it as a hidden stash box for her money!!! Was easy to set up the biometric device light enough to even have in your car to lock away anything!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two years; so far, so good. I've owned this little "safe" for two years. Frankly I don't access it that often; like many other buyers, I bought it to secure a couple of small pistols from the grandkids. Mine has worked perfectly, until recently. I entered the access code, the light flashed green, I heard the mechanism trying to work, but it wouldn't open. After trying this several times and receiving the same results, I got angry and called the company, thinking I'd see how they'd handle a warranty issue. While on hold, I listened to the recording advising that the battery should be replaced every 6 to 12 twelve months. Now the manual indicates that if the battery is getting low, there should be a series of red flashes and beeps when the keypad is activated; this was not happening with mine. Despite this, I hung up, bought a new battery, put it in, and the thing works perfectly now. From now on, it gets a new battery every 6 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truck and airline safe This has been my go to safe for my truck for over a decade. I even use when I travel by air. I know it will be safe in my checked bag when it’s in this safe. I also like that I can secure it via cable inside my truck.
