This turned out to be an awesome vacation accessory! I am usually always keeping an eye on my belongings while at the pool, never really relaxing. With this safe, I had the flexibility to wrap it around two chair arms, locking it in place while still keeping it discretely in my beach bag. Sure, someone could have taken it, but I suspect people would notice someone running off with two lounge chairs. It's a little on the heavy side, but you don't want something flimsy that would break easily if someone really wanted to get at it, right? It won't quite fit a kindle, but I was able to put a wallet and two phones in it, with room to spare. Oh, and I loved the idea of a keyed lock, just in case we forgot the passcode. Great item all around, I'll be using it again and again as we travel!
