When I worked as a retail manager, I rarely brought my purse to work. We did not have approval from our corporate office for lockers because of the expense and lack of space. I always carried my cell phone and wallet on me and kept my car keys in my lunchbox. I knew of several employees at nearby stores that had their cars broken into because they left purses in their cars. At the time, I wanted a better option to store my belongings so I wouldn’t risk dropping them on the sales floor. It would have been a great option to have a SAFEGO portable safe. When I learned of this product, I requested one for review.
The SAFEGO is a safe with a three-digit combination lockbox. Made of impact-resistant ABS plastic, it is incredibly lightweight. A flexible 1/4″ thick steel wire with plastic coating loops through the top of the safe. Using the cable, you can attach the safe to fixed objects. SAFEGO comes in five colors: white, black, blue, gold, and pink. It also includes an opening for earphones.
Changing the factory default combination was easy. A default combination is listed on a sticker placed on the outside of the safe. Once it’s set, you just turn the lock to the right to pop open the top. An instruction booklet with illustrations is provided to guide you through creating a custom combination. (I set up my combination in less than 30 seconds.) You can also use one of two keys provided. You can change the combination at any time.
Although there’s plenty of space for more, I put my wallet, keys, and sunglasses in the safe. In the photos, I have the cable shown tucked into the safe. When you extend it to lock around an object, you’ll have more room to place items inside.
Although the safe could be broken into with some time and tools, it’s a great deterrent!
