The compact design of this key box makes it perfect for tight spaces or indeed for settings where a larger keysafe simply isn't required but you still want the security of the four-wheel combination code rather than some if the rival 3-wheel options.
With its slick minimal design, this key box is supplied with screw fixings as standard, and measures just 75mm x 95mm x 40mm (width x height x depth) so can fit into much smaller spaces than others, whilst maintaining a very reasonable internal space to house the keys. As you will see in the photo, we were able to fit several sets of keys into the safe without issues; however we do recommend that you allow for some free space inside to prevent any operational issues caused by too many keys in the box.
Most commonly, we see key safes fitted by the front door for use by carers and visitors to properties occupied by residents with limited mobility. This continues to be one of the most popular solutions to sharing keys in this way, as it offers a convenient way to share keys without having to get several copies made, and of course also preventing carers from having to carry lots of keys for different properties.
However, an increasingly popular use of keysafes (particularly the smaller ones like this) is actually inside the property, used for car keys, motorbike keys, van keys and similar. This is because our vehicles are often our most valuable assets that can be stolen, yet the keys are usually just laying on the kitchen table or on a hook by the front door which is easy picking for an opportunist thief. So there are many who now choose to add a bit of additional security to their keys for this very reason.
When it comes to using your key-safe, it could not be easier than it is with this neat little offering from Kasp. Simply rotating the four number-wheels until the correct code is lined up correctly, and then a gentle pull on the finger-pull lip along the upper edge of the door, will allow you to drop the keysafe door open - nice and easy, with very minimal effort required.
How to change the code on a KASP Key Safe
To change the code on your key-safe is a very easy task and can be completed in no time at all without the need for any tools. Be sure not to close the keysafe during this process until stated below.
Step 1 - Enter the current code (the default code on a new purchase is 0-0-0-0), and open the door by pulling down on the top lip.
Step 2 - On the inside of the door, switch the 'RESET' lever from position 'A' to position 'B'.
Step 3 - Rotate the number wheels so that your new desired combination is displayed (making sure each of the number wheels are correctly aligned).
Step 4 - On the inside of the door again, set the 'RESET' lever back to position 'A'.
Step 5 - Check that you can now freely press the locking latch in and out with your finger or thumb; if the code has been correctly set and is still displayed, the latch should press in freely.
Step 6 - If all goes well with Step 5, you can now close the key safe and scramble the code. Do not forget this new code as there is no way to reverse this process!
Important: Any padlocks & associated hardware intended to be used in external settings should be properly maintained and lubricated to an appropriate level for the setting in order to ensure correct operation and protection from unnecessary weathering.
