    That is not to say digitals will fail, or do fail given time, it is merely an informal comparison.

Being prepared is a way of life not a event that takes place with a purchase of any particular item. Get prepared now while you can.

    However, I got to thinking about, what if the electronic keypad fails? And I don't mean the battery, but the electronics themselves. I was not supplied any kind of key and there doesn't appear to be anywhere to insert a key in case the electronics do fail. What do you do then? I guess call a lock smith. But is there anything I can do myself? I know these safes aren't completely "break in" proof. I have it mainly for fire protection and as a common house burglar deterrent. I think you could get into it, but not quickly.

    I'd just like to know in case of emergency. I'd think there has to be some kind of mechanical "back up".
    If you can prove the safe belongs to you, a locksmith can get into it. They have their ways.
