First, I need to disclose that I did not order this to use as a suggestion box. I ordered it to use as a bank. My daughter wanted to start a 52 week saving plan--the one where you save $52 the first week, $51 the next, etc.. until the end of the year at which time you would save $1378. She wanted something that was opaque (so she couldn't see the money and be tempted!), sturdy and reusable, with a lock and a place to hold a record of each week's deposit. I will say it was a challenge to find something of that nature until I happened upon a series of suggestion boxes. I ended up ordering this because it checked every box on her checklist. When I presented her with the box, she gave me the key to hold on to (again avoiding temptation) . The lock isn't like one you'd find at Fort Knox but it's not designed to be. This is, after all, a suggestion box. The box is definitely solid. It can be mounted to the wall but I doubt she will ever use that feature. The slot is at the top so she can drop in the money but is small enough so she cannot shake it out (again, avoiding temptation!). I asked her how the box was working out and she was excited to tell me how much money she has saved so far this year. I was happy to surprise her with this because I want to encourage her to save money and you have to start someplace. I hope she will use it for years to come.
