This key-safe from KASP is the larger of the two offerings, measuring 90mm x 120mm x 40mm (width x height x depth), and offers a sliding weather-shield cover over the combination wheels, helping to protect the combination chamber from the harshness of the British weather.
The keybox boasts a thick, black powder-coated body, and comes with a 10 year manufacturer's guarantee. It is supplied with the necessary screw fixings as standard to allow you to secure the keysafe to the wall. Inside the unit, you have space for several keys - in fact there's a very similar internal space to the compact model, as the combination chamber in this larger model is able to be made bigger and stronger for better security. As you will see from the photos, we
were able to fit several sets of keys into the safe without issues. Please note that 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
is undoubtedly the most popular solutions to sharing keys in
this way, as it offers the convenience without having to
get several copies made, and of course also preventing carers from
having to carry lots of keys for different properties.
That being said, there's many other uses for key-safes, with one increasingly popular choice being the use of them inside the property 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 more simple. By rotating the four number-wheels until the correct code is
lined up correctly (after sliding the weather cover down of course), you can then operate the small lever to the left of the wheels, which when flipped down will release the locking mechanism. On releasing the mechanism, the door springs open slightly to allow for easy opening of the unit.
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.
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
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.
