First Alert 3.12 Cu. Ft. Fire Theft Combination Safe
The First Alert 2700F 2-hour fire rated safe affords a high level of anti-theft security as well as extended fire protection. This model also features an automatic re-lock system, 1 removable/adjustable shelf, and a lockable pull-out storage drawer. Dry fill guarantee: the safe is guaranteed not to develop mildew from moisture originating in the safe's insulating material for five years. All First Alert fire safes are covered by a 5 year manufacturer's warranty and will be replaced free of charge if damaged in a fire.
Protection from Fire Damage:
According to the National Fire Prevention Association, most residential fires last less than 30 minutes with fires lasting longer than 1 hour being rare. Fire duration is affected by the amount of fuel available to the fire and the length of time required for the fire department to respond to a fire call. The 2700F fire safe has been awarded a JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards) 2-hour fire rating verifying that it will withstand an external temperature of 1700° Fahrenheit while maintaining an internal temperature of less than 350° Fahrenheit. The 2700F is therefore a good choice for a residence or office with above average fuel sources and or located longer distances from the fire department.
Protection from Thieves: The First Alert 2700F fire safe's anti-theft features include steel construction, heavy duty steel hinges, and 6 solid steel locking bolts: 4 live and 2 dead. The fire safe's 4-number dial combination lock provides a high level of security. The combination lock is designed to be used in conjunction with the entry key. The entry key can be left in the keyhole using only the combination lock to secure the door, or it can be removed for an extra level of security. Two entry keys included.

I bought this safe in mid 2012. It is everything you could want and more. Where to begin.... well first off, it is a tank, I had to unload it with a payloader. In the details it says it weighs 333, and it weighs all of that, it took four strong men to help me move it. This safe is huge and deserves respect, the locking mechanism is smooth and crisp, no extra wobbly movement you can expect with cheaper safes, wheels are of good quality as well. The walls have to be four inches thick, no ones getting in. Plain and simple, I believe it is the most secure, durable, and smooth safe i have encountered and i would encourage anyone to buy one.
Q: How can I replace the keys or get the combination to my safe?
If you misplaced your keys, or forgot the combination to your safe, please fill out the Combination/Key Request Form, have it notarized, and fax it to our Consumer Affairs Department at 800-603-2878. We will then send you your request.
Q: Where do I find the serial number for my safe?
A: On the bottom right hand corner on the front of the safe or the right wall on the outside of the safe. It is located on a silver sticker (usually 6-10 digits).
Q: The dial on my First Alert safe won't make a complete rotation, what's wrong?
A: There may be a plastic pin inside the safe that holds the dial in place during shipping. Simply turn the dial hard, forcing the plastic pin to break off and the dial will spin freely. If this does not work, spray some WD40 around the dial. If you are still experiencing issues, contact Consumer Affairs at 1-800-323-9005 for further assistance.
Q: Where can I find the key number?
- Engraved on the key itself.
- Engraved on the lock cylinder.
- Engraved underneath the black plastic cap that says digital electronic safes.
- The silver sticker on the bottom right hand corner of the Anti-Theft Safes.
- On the key cover.
Q: The door to my First Alert safe is stuck, what should I do?
This may happen if the bars do not disengage fully. You can try one of the following:
- Insert your override key (the one with the square top) and while turning the key take a flathead screwdriver and insert it in the crack of the door and slowly pry it open.
- Another method is to lay your First Alert safe on the right hand side and using the over ride key open the door.
Q: My key is not broken, but it does not work in the safe. What should I do?
It may be possible that some debris/dust is caught in the lock of your unit. Please try the following:
- Check the engraved key number and verify it matches the engraved letter on the key cylinder.
- Spray WD-40 oil in the lock.
- Tap it lightly with a hammer.
- Try the key again. If the key still does not work please contact Consumer Affairs at 1-800-323-9005 for more information.
Q: My safe is under warranty and it appears to be defective. How do I get a replacement?
A: If your First Alert Safe fails to operate because of a manufacturing defect, any time up to five (5) years from the date of original purchase, we will, at our discretion, repair or replace the unit at no charge to the original owner provided you return the product, shipping prepaid, to First Alert. You should contact Consumer Affairs Department at 1-800-323-9005 for prior authorization in advance and they will direct you on what steps to follow.
