If you’re going off to college, you’re probably heading there with a fair amount of expensive equipment: a laptop, a smartphone, an MP3 player — maybe even a video camera. That stuff’s not cheap, and you definitely don’t want to trust it to a cheap dorm safe!
This unit is ready to protect your stuff. Custom-designed for dorm rooms, its solid steel and its vertical form-factor means it saves precious dorm space and will fit easily into a closet or under a desk. Yet it’s roomy enough inside to fit the largest 18-inch laptops. (And its upright design means you don’t have to get on your knees every time you want to grab your laptop!)
Its clever lock opens with your choice of your favorite PIN code or just a swipe of your credit card or driver’s license. (It’s important that it’s quick and easy to operate — otherwise you won’t bother using it!) The safe attaches to a plate that can be bolted down to the floor to securely hold the safe, and all items within it, in place. And it boasts a full-length hinge that adds rigidity and helps protect contents from theft.
Another smart feature: two grommetted holes at the bottom rear of the safe enable you to create a “charging station” inside for all of your electronic devices. So you can recharge all your expensive equipment without worrying that someone will sneak into your dorm room and walk off with it!
Its vertical orientation allows for better use of the keypad at the top of the safe. It will easily hold up to an 18-inch laptop vertically and has a hole at the bottom back of the safe which allows a surge protector to be placed inside the safe for the student to charge any electrical items while placed in the safe. The side shelves allow for additional storage of passports, Ipods, Mp3 players, cameras, watches, jewelry and prescription drugs.
The electronic lock is powered by a 9V alkaline battery and when the battery becomes low, it signals the user to let them know it has to be changed. The battery is easily accessed at the bottom of the lock on the outside of the safe.
The best dorm safe costs more than a plastic box; that’s true. But when you consider that it’s much cheaper than replacing your laptop, I think it’s a no-brainer.
Some colleges may have restrictions about securing things (like safes) to the floor of a dorm room.
Just in case, use the vinyl coated steel security cable included with your dorm safe as a way of making sure no one takes off with your safe with your property inside.
The Stealth Dorm Safe comes standard with a vinyl-coated steel cable that will secure your Dorm Safe to a pipe, bed leg, or other stationary object in your dorm room.

First, try changing the 9V battery located on the outside of the safe. Make sure the battery is BRAND NEW with at least 4 years left until its expiration date. If that doesn't work, call customer service.
The safe will come with an instruction manual with very easy to follow instructions on how to open your safe and change your combination.
No, they are not.
Stored information (i.e. combinationn & card swipe) will not be affected when battery needs to be replaced. Easily replaced with battery slot located on the front of the keypad. We recommend that you keep a few 9V batteries on hand just in case.
No, there is not. In the event that you are locked out of your safe, please call customer service.
No, there is not is something happens to the battery wire. We have had very few problems with the battery wire, you just have to be gentle with them. At that point you would have to drill the safe to open it.
The safe has predrilled mounting holes located at the bottom of the safe underneath the foam floor lining. You secure the safe with bolts from the inside of the safe. If you are not allowed to mount the safe (most colleges will not allow you to drill holes in the floor), you can use the cable lock provided to secure it to a permanent fixture in the room.
