just what i was looking for, no keys to lose
I love the look of this book safe! When it is sitting on my bookshelf next to my other books you would never know the difference! I use the book safe to keep our cash, passports, and gift cards in.
Setting the combination using the instructions was difficult for me. I was following the instructions but it wasn't working. I couldn't move the A / B lever to lock in the combo. My husband tried it and it didn't work for him either. But my husband decided to try the reverse of what the instructions and that worked! Rather than put the number in when it is set on A and then moving it to B to lock it in we had to do the reverse - set the numbers when in "B" an then turn it to "A" to lock in the combination. I am not certain if this was just an issue with our unit or if the instructions are just incorrect. Either way, if you are having any issues with the setting your combo and the A / B lever, try doing it in reverse!
Once we sorted that out, we are good. It is easy to set and open the safe now that we know how to! We love the safe and look forward to using it for a long time to come. I would definitely recommend this book safe!

I really like this book safe it really blends in with other books and has the combo lock not a key lock which I like a lot . its very roomy and you can fit a lot of stuff in it . I have it in the middle of some older books and because its texture is just like them it really just looks like an old dictionary I think it s a fantastic book safe and its a great price. The combo is easy to change if you want to change it for some reason and you get to pick the combo so you can choose a number you like and can remember . Im including a how to video review so you can see how the locking system works and how to work with it

I had always seen those mystery shows with the book safe stashed among the real books and wondered if there was such a thing and was it affordable. Well, yes it is for real and yes it is affordable! I found the safe very well made and even though if someone wanted to break into it, it can be done but then most safes can be. I was shocked at how easy some of the safes we think are secure take so little to open so having something that doesn't even look like a safe to me is added security.
At a glance, it looks just like a dictionary and Ohuhu did a great job recreating a realistic looking book that will blend easily with your other books.
If I walked into someone's home, I don't think I would even notice the book/safe. Setting my combination was easy, opening and closing the safe was just as easy. While it isn't the biggest safe, it is a great way to store cash, jewelry, a handgun or other smaller items. If storing your handgun, I would suggest that you wrap it in a protective cloth since the safe is unlined and can possible scratch anything that is placed inside it. That is one thing I would change if asked, pad the inside, however, that does not take away from the functionality'.
Overall, I really like this safe and know that it's not standing out screaming, "I'm a safe, take me and run", lol. I was provided a sample of the product for my honest unbiased review. I test each and every product I review. Good or bad, my opinions are from my own experiences with the product and may not always be the same as another person however they are never influenced in any way.
This Ohuhu Dictionary Diversion Book Safe is really unique and looks very similar to an actual dictionary book! This book safe is very well made and I love that if you blend it well with other books on a shelf you wouldn't know that it's a safe unless you're seriously looking for it. This book safe does come with instructions on how to set the three digit code to whatever you want it to be and it's very easy to follow. This book safe is a really good size as it can hold various small items as well as a small handgun if needed. I do think that if someone knew what they were doing they probably could break into this book safe but again they'd probably have to know to look for it as it's not something that would easily catch someones attention. I love that this book safe gives me a little bit more piece of mind when it comes to some of the important things I wouldn't want someone to find! I would definitely recommend this Ohuhu Dictionary Diversion Book Safe!

I love the idea of a secret hiding place and who would look in a dictionary for one. When I saw this I knew I had to have it because I can put it on a shelf with by other books and no one is the wiser. It has a 3 number combination lock so you don't have to worry about losing keys.It has a nice size storage area measuring 2 by 5.6 by 9 inches so you could even use it to store a handgun. The book is a hardback and looks simple and like any other book. You can also use this to store money. your passport, jewelry and many other valuables you want to keep safe. The size of the book is only slightly bigger than the safe that inside so it's not too big that it won't easily fit on a shelf. It's made of solid steel so it's pretty strong even though it only looks like a book and only weighs slightly over 2 pounds. I like that it's only a three number combination because it's relatively easy to remember and there are 1000 possible combinations it could possibly be so getting into it isn't easy. I find this is a great way to hide smaller items from my children as well. You get a set of instructions that tells you how to change the combination so you can change it as often as you like. Overall I love this secret safe and I am very happy with this product. I received this in exchange for an honest and unbiased review and all opinions are my own.
I'll admit I thought a fake book would stick out like a sore thumb so I was pretty surprised when I opened the box that contained this one. I received the Dictionary Diversion Safe at no cost to review and it is awesome that this looks and feel like a book on the outside.
The book is really well constructed and looks and feels solid. Tucked into a bookcase or on shelf among other books, it would be pretty difficult to pick it out as a fake. The cover is the same thickness and feels like it is the same board material that regular books are constructed of and the outer cover is the same coated material as a regular book. Inside the metal box is sturdy and strong. The lock operates good and the dials turn easily and without any problems. It comes set at 000 and the dial turns to open and close the lock. The directions for setting your own combination are a little confusing at first only because they state that the is originally in the B position but mine was in the A position. It also is very tough to move it from A to B. I had to use the edge of a pocket knife because otherwise it hurt my finger and wouldn't move. once you move it to the B position, you set your desired combination and then slide the lever back to the A position (it slides easily that way!) and it is ready to use. Anytime you want to reset the combination you simply repeat those steps: Move the lever to the B position, set the dials to the numbers you choose, slide the lever back to the A position. I have done it a few times a to test and it has worked correctly each time. The inside of the box measures about 2 inches deep x just under 9 inches tall x 5 3/4 inches wide, so it can hold quite a few treasures.
The box is fully metal so I am probably going to line it with some thin foam so things don't clang around inside. If you really wanted to get fancy, you could create compartments like you see in a jewelry box to keep things organized. I like this a lot. It is much better made than I expected, looks realistic and is really cool.
Fast delivery, works well
