    Has anyone used, tested or have any info on the new Cannon safe combination? They call it the EMP keypad. It combines the electronic keypad for speedy entry with a traditional manual dial spinning lock so that if the electronics dies in the next biblical flood or whatever you can access your safe. All in a single unit. (photo below).


    It looks like the shizz to me, anyone have any testing or unbiased info? Any info you'd want to share on Cannon in particular. I know that everyone seems to think American Security is the best, but I can assure you, the lock on the comparable Amsec looks and feels like a light plastic toy. I asked the safe guy about it and he said that model is made overseas by Amsec. I was like ??!! Huh??!! So I'm thinking Cannon, love the lock. So far.

    Your thoughts?

    My advice is to call some different locksmiths and ask their opinions on locks - not safes.
    I had my AmSec safe fitted with a lock that was not offered by AmSec but recommended buy several locksmiths. The only electric lock I seriously considered in the end had a self generating power supply, used by DoD and others, where access had to be there under any circumstances. I don't recall the name but the $700+ cost put it out of consideration.
