Changing How the Military Stores Weapons

Building Weapon Racks for the U.S. Military

This week at SecureIt, Ryan and Tom dive into SecureIt’s military roots and how the company came to be. Learn about Tom’s early days of touring military bases across the country and the problems faced by many armories. Also, you’ll hear how the idea of storing firearms for the military resulted in SecureIt becoming involved with the retail gun storage industry.

 

Featured Product of the Week: Military Weapon Racks & Cabinets

When a soldier heads into battle, their rifle needs to perform as expected. For that reason, there is no room for damage or the possibility of future malfunction when a weapon is stored. With CradleGrid Technology and the design of our cabinets, firearms are stored safely. Straight-line access allows firearms to be stored in a clean row allowing for quick inventory or easy retrieval. Firearms are stored in a way that leaves no room for potential damage, overcrowding, or error.

Military Style Cabinets Available Through Retail

Store your firearms in the exact same cabinets we use in our military and law enforcement armory installations. These proprietary heavy-duty cabinets are available in a variety of configurations and feature CradleGrid Technology.

1824 Ammo Cabinet

In a sealed environment like a traditional gun safe, a large volume of ammunition can create a violent and dangerous explosion. With the diamond punch pattern on the front and sides, the 1824 cabinet allows ammo to cook off in the event of a fire. Another benefit of the cabinet is the 400+ lbs. of firearms, accessories, and gear. each shelf can hold.

Ammo Cabinet Configurations

The 1824 cabinet is compatible with all of our CradleGrid accessories to give you unlimited storage flexibility. The Model 1824 Ammo Cabinet quickly adapts to any environment and can be reconfigured in minutes. Included accessories like the storage bin and the storage shelf can be quickly repositioned on the louvered back panel or placed on a shelf for additional organization.

Gun Safe Industry – The Truth and The Answers

Gun Safe Problem: Disrespect For Guns

When it comes to firearm storage, there are a number of selling points that the gun safe industry will try to use. Gun safe manufacturers specifically, will emphasize weight, thickness, and storage capacity in order to sell a residential security container. They will also point out the cosmetic value, which sounds something like “look at that beautiful looking design on the door!” The thing about those factors is that they do not add any true value to safety or security.

Weight does not add any level of security. To call a gun safe or cabinet secure based on weight alone is misleading. Any gun safe can be broken into with enough time and the proper tools. A gun safe/cabinet can be broken in to even faster when it’s made up of nothing more than thin steel and drywall. Not to mention the damage, said drywall, can do to the very thing you hope to protect. With the contents of drywall being corrosive to guns, it is actually counterproductive to store anything of value inside one of these “safes”.

Gun Safe Drywall and Carpeting
The drywall and carpeting, used inside of a residential security container, adds no value.

Furthermore shoving dozens of guns inside one safe is just as damaging. When guns are placed on top of one another their pieces knock into one another. It might seem less expensive to try and fit everything in one safe but it just is not worth it. When you’re ready to take them out and use them, they come out with scratches, dents, and broken parts. Which means spending more money to repair those issues. You’re spending more time as well trying to fix and sort through all of your damaged guns when you could be out on the range or hunting.

Gun Safe Fail
An inefficient gun storage system

At the end of the day the most important thing to remember in storing your guns is: When it comes to security, discretion is key. A thief cannot break into something they cannot find and when you have a big beautiful safe out on display, it is basically a welcome mat for theft.

The Gun Safe Solution: Intelligent Firearm Storage

After recognizing these issues within the gun safe industry, we’ve decided to take action and provide gun owners with products like the TRUE and the Answer.

The biggest difference you’ll see between the Answer and the TRUE safe is the weight. The TRUE safe weighs in at roughly 1,300lbs while the Answer 8-gun cabinet and the Answer 12-gun cabinet weigh 230lbs and 300lbs respectively. Again, don’t think of the weight in terms of additional security. Instead, look at the material that makes up that weight. It’s that material that’s the important part. Take the TRUE safe for example; the weight of the TRUE is due to the concrete composite that fills the space between double-steel walls. In many traditional gun safes, the weight is due to drywall and carpeting – two things that add ZERO value to security and are hazardous to your firearms.

Much like the TRUE, the weight of the Answer is also due to the design. Like all of our gun storage products, we refused to put drywall with glue and carpeting into the Answer and instead went with a welded steel construction. The size of each Answer was also designed to make them more manageable than traditional gun safes and residential security containers. The Answer line is meant to be discrete, accessible, and also allow you to max out its storage capacity. The included CradleGrid Technology provides you with straight-line access to your firearms, eliminating guns bumping against guns, and is compatible with all other CradleGrid accessories. The addition of the door organizer also provides a greater level of storage for your firearms and accessories like no other.

The Answer to Today’s Gun Safe

SecureIt’s Solution to the Gun Safe Problem

We make no qualms about it. We are not happy with the gun safe industry. Many gun safes on the market are problematic and don’t provide the quality they claim to have. When we entered the retail market, we said that we would change the way people think about gun storage and we continue that mission as we launch The Answer. It’s the solution to all the problems gun owners face with today’s “gun safe” or residential security container.

Learn more about the latest addition to our roster of intelligent firearm storage by watching the video below.


The Answer

The fact is unless you own a real gun safe (two steel walls filled with cement) you’ve been sold the proverbial bill of goods. Your gun safe (really an RSC) is a toxic box that will corrode your firearms, will not stop thieves or fire, violates any protocol for the proper storage of firearms and is horribly heavy and hard to move. Answer™, from SecureIt®, the worldwide leader in building military armories, is the solution to these problems.

The Deception of the Gun Safe Industry

Silas Herring built what is considered the first modern gun safe back in the 1850s. His safe was made up of two steel walls filled with cement.

It wasn’t until many decades later (the 1970s) that the gun safe industry, in an effort to reduce costs, eliminated the cement and inner steel wall, replacing it with heavy drywall which they lined with carpet. This is still the design of gun safes today, which perpetuates the following falsehoods and problems.

  1. Not even a real safe – Today’s gun safes are not even real safes. They are technically categorized as Residential Security Containers (RSC). Did you know you own an RSC and not a real gun safe?
  2. Toxic box – Your gun safe is a toxic box. The chemicals in the drywall and carpet can literally corrode your firearms!
  3. Won’t stop fire – If your gun safe has a fire rating, it’s almost certainly untrue. If you have a fire in your home, the guns in your gun safe are toast. Ask any fire chief.
  4. #1 cause of gun damage – Makers of gun safes purposely make the safe door extremely heavy. This makes you think they are secure. This is also why gun safes are so deep – to counter-balance the heavy door. This, in turn, causes another problem – guns bumping into guns as you remove them. It’s the #1 cause of firearm damage!
  5. False capacity ratings – All gun safe manufacturers claim an unrealistic storage capacity. Do they think we are all fools?
  6. Ridiculously heavy – Gun safes are horribly heavy and hard to move. This, to lure you into a false sense of security.
  7. Draw attention to your guns – Gun safes are commonly made to be shiny showpieces, which flies in the face of keeping your guns hidden.
  8. Won’t stop thieves – Finally, a thief can cut the top off of your gun safe in just a couple minutes with a $20 saw.

The Answer: 12-Gun Storage Cabinet

The Answer does not contain materials that simply waste space and corrode firearms. That how we were able to make it expansive without making it deep. This means you can have straight-line access to all 12 firearms. Also, because it’s only 18″ deep, the Answer™ Two-Door will fit where gun safes can’t, even in a closet!

Product Specifications for the Answer 12 Gun Cabinet

The Answer: 8-Gun Storage Cabinet

Like the Answer™ Two-Door, the Answer One-Door designed to be durable, sturdy and dependable. It’s lighter as it is narrower and provides you with straight-line access to 8 firearms. The 18″ of depth also provides you with the ability to store the Answer™ One-Door just about anywhere in your home!

How to Increase The Storage Capacity of Your Gun Safe

Using Rifle Rods for High-Density Storage in the TRUE Safe

This week at SecureIt, Ryan and Tom discuss the process of fire and heat testing for gun safes and reveal the results of the testing done on the TRUE safe. You’ll also get a look at the latest addition to the SecureIt line of accessories and how it can efficiently increase the storage capacity of the TRUE should you need to do so.

Have an Idea for a Weekly Topic?

We have a lot planned for our YouTube series as we head into the fall but we still hear your ideas! If you have a topic you’d like to see us cover in our bi-weekly updates, be sure to leave a comment below or contact marketing@secureittactical.com

Product of the Week: TRUE Safe High-Capacity Kits

At SecureIt, we recognize that the True Safe is a significant investment in security and fire protection. We also know that there are times when you need to store more firearms. That’s why we offer the high capacity storage kits. They are a simple and incredibly effective means to maximize the space inside your True Safe.

High Capacity Gun safe rifles

The SecureIt High-Capacity Kits for the True Safe provides higher storage capacity within the same footprint. The system uses polymer rods that go into rifle barrels and attached to the base of the shelf. Rods are equipped with hook fabric and can be attached to the fabric underneath the TRUE safe storage shelf. These rods fit a firearm caliber of .22 and larger and work great with the AR platform, shotguns, and firearms with scopes attached.

High Capacity Gun safe

The rod system allows you to configure the gun safe interior to meet your needs. There are no limits to the way in which you can store a wide variety of long guns. The total capacity of the True gun safe is a dependent upon the type of rifles being stored. With simple bolt and lever action rifles, you can fit up to 35. With AR platform rifles and or large scopes and optics the quantity will drop. If you have many AR platform rifles with larger optics, max capacity will be in the 12 – 18 range.

These Kits come in packs of 10 or 20 and are specific to the TRUE safe. Head to our shop page to order your TRUE Safe High-Capacity Kit today!

Building a Custom Reloading Bench for Your Gun Room

How to Use CradleGrid For Your Gun Room Workbench

This week at SecureIt, Ryan and Tom highlight the workbench inside of the SecureIt gun room. You’ll hear about the benefits of adding CradleGrid to your reloading bench and work area, how easy it is to install and how you can efficiently organize your storage and tools.

Have an Idea for a Weekly Topic?

We have a lot planned for our YouTube series as we head into the fall, but we still hear your ideas! If you have a topic you’d like to see us cover in our bi-weekly updates, be sure to leave a comment below or contact marketing@secureittactical.com

Product Feature of the Week: CradleGrid Accessories

Steel Panels:

The first thing you’ll need to do is measure the area you plan to use for your work area. When preparing for steel gun wall panels to behind your workbench, you should consider if you want the panels to align with the top of your bench or rest slightly above it. We recommend using panels that will go below the top of your bench so that you can utilize CradleGrid within all of the available space.

Gun Wall Panel - Small

We offer two types of heavy-duty steel panels for your gun room’s work area. The small panels are 17.25″w x 16″ h, and the large panels are 17.25″w x 36″h. So, when measuring out your workbench area or reloading station, be sure to consider those dimensions as well. You can also contact our armory and gun room build team via sales@secureittactical.com if you need assistance.

Storage Bins:

When it comes to efficiency in a gun room or any firearm storage system, a key element is the method of organization! While that seems like it would be obvious, there aren’t a whole lot of storage options that provide efficient storage. SecureIt’s modular storage bins one of our most simple yet effective storage solutions that provide superior organization. Storing any gun oils, cleaning products or liquids in a small bin is a great way to prevent accidental spills from making a large mess. The mess is contained, and the bin can be easily cleaned.

Small Gun Storage Bin w/ Cleaner

For gun assembly and maintenance, a medium or large bin allows you to keep track of individual parts and the disassembled gun can be conveniently stored with all associated parts and tools inside of a safe or cabinet. When you’re ready to continue working, the bin can simply be attached to the wall above your gun room’s workbench, so it is out of the way yet easy to reach.

Gun Wall Mounts:

A fundamental component to any gun wall build is the gun wall mount system. SecureIt gun wall mounts can be purchased as a single set or a Trio Rifle Mount Kit that includes a tiered system. If you are working on a rifle or swapping out the lower receivers, having a gun wall mount set up above your workbench is a handy solution for gun part storage.

Metal Storage Trays and Shelves:

Metal Storage Trays are a flexible storage accessory that can maximize gun wall space. While sitting above your reloading station area, the ability to store and organize gun parts, tools, and reloading equipment creates an efficient workflow. Everything you need is within reach and organize to meet your workspace needs.

Finally, by including a few Rifle and Gear Shelves within your gunsmithing area, you can conveniently store binders, books, associated boxes, and parts for anything you have in repair or are building.

The Path to Better Gun Storage

How to Get Started With SecureIt’s Firearm Storage Solutions

This week at SecureIt, Ryan and Tom share a major company announcement. Additionally, you’ll hear firearm storage tips for customers who may be new to the brand. Learn the path to a successful gun storage system, what products to consider, and how SecureIt products can fit any living situation.

Start Small, Expand Efficiently

If you’re a first-time gun owner, chances are you’re looking for a simple storage product that’s on the smaller side. However, why not think ahead so you’re prepared for future purchases? A customer recently told us that he obtained his conceal carry license and purchased his first handgun. He was looking for a basic handgun safe that he could store in his bedroom. He also mentioned that he was a hunter, owned rifles, and was looking to purchase additional handguns and gear later this year.

Gun Storage: Fast Box with Pistols

We told him that while we don’t produce a small handgun safe, we do have an efficient solution. We recommended he purchased a Fast Box Model 47 and use it in a vertical orientation. That way, he could have quick access when he needed it, and also, have room for additional gear and firearms. He decided to place an order and has since placed an additional order for another Fast Box 47 with CradleGrid Accessories.

Gun Storage: Fast Box with Handguns

When it comes to building a gun wall, you’re likely not looking to build out an entire room. Also, you might not even have enough firearms to warrant purchasing a full Gun Wall Kit. In situations like this, we suggest starting with what you need. This way you won’t get overwhelmed and you won’t have unnecessary storage components. Many of our customers start with a small gun wall and expand it over time. If you have plans or even the beginning of an idea for a gun wall or room, do not hesitate to give us a call. Our expert staff will help you every step of the way as you build the gun wall/home armory of your dreams.

The Truth About Firearm Storage

Before you consider buying a gun safe, know the truth the gun storage industry won’t tell you. For years, consumers have been failed and misled by the gun safe industry. Gun safes are meant to be secure and should keep your firearms protected as well as stop threats of theft.

Recognizing their failure and falsehoods, we have set out to change the way people store their firearms. By introducing new ways for gun owners to safely store their firearms, gun owners finally have the answer to the problems and issues introduced by the gun safe industry.

Sharing Customer Success Stories

This week at SecureIt, Ryan and Tom are highlighting customer success stories. Learn how gun owners use CradleGrid to build custom gun walls, create unique storage systems, and set up their Agile Model 52 for max storage efficiency.

Product Feature of the Week: Customizing Your Storage

Gun Wall Kits

A major benefit to a Gun Wall Kit is the flexibility to build your storage display however you see fit. You can start with a simple layout and expand or reorganize your display based on YOUR storage needs. CradleGrid Technology affords gun owners the ability to adjust on the fly and create the ultimate gun wall setup.

Custom Gun Walls

Retrofit Kits

The Retrofit Kit is the solution to the organization issues that exist within many gun safes and cabinet. These kits provide gun owners with straight-line access and remove the need to store guns in front of guns. Retrofit Kits also provide gun owners with an opportunity to get creative with their firearm storage.

Gun Storage: Custom Retrofit Kits

Many customers have sent in images and videos of custom gun storage projects that embrace SecureIt’s intelligent firearm storage philosophy. These customers have built gun storage inside of old soda machines, candy machines, wardrobes, closets, and so much more!

Agile Ultralight  Heavy-Duty Model 52

This ultralight gun storage system has the ability to do everything a traditional gun safe can do, and more. The Model 52 is discreet, it can be easily hidden and does not contain materials that are hazardous to firearms. The modularity provided by CradleGrid also provides gun owners with the ability for max storage efficiency. Gun owners can also designate their Model 52 for specific types of firearms, ammo, and gear.

Gun Storage: Customer Model 52

Setting The Storage Standard

SecureIt is redefining firearm storage. Why? Because the gun safe industry has failed and misled its consumers. Most gun safes on the market today are nothing more than heavy lockboxes classified as residential security cabinets. These boxes are filled with carpeting, drywall, and toxic materials that are damaging to your firearms. Additionally, these RSCs don’t provide any true value when it comes to security. Many gun safes are indiscreet and can be cut open in minutes.

The gun safe industry has also failed to keep up with the sweeping changes in the size and shape of modern firearms. Gun safe capacities have become a measurement of how many slots can be added to a bracket. A herd mentality prevails, whether it’s a gun safe or a gun cabinet – put ‘em in the barn and close the door. Guns bump against guns, providing little to no room for scopes, and absolutely no respect for your firearms. By implementing storage techniques that protect your firearm collection, we are changing the gun storage industry. Gun owners should have products that create a safe environment for your valuables, firearms, and especially your loved ones.

SecureIt is addressing these issues and changing the way gun owners store firearms through a variety of intelligent firearm storage products. Whether you’re buying a new safe or cabinet, upgrading what you currently have with our Retrofit Kits, or building the ultimate gun wall or gun room, SecureIt products are versatile and adaptable to meet all of your storage needs.

Gun Storage for Home Defense

Maintaining Fast Access to Your Firearm Storage

This Week at SecureIt, Ryan and Tom discuss the benefits of storing your firearms for home defense. They’ll highlight why you should store firearms throughout the home as opposed to storing them in one single location. You’ll also learn which products work best, the locations you need to consider, and why it’s a beneficial method of gun storage. Also, get an update on the Gun Storage Giveaway, the status of the TRUE safe pry-bar testing, and more.

Featured Products of the Week: Home Defense Gun Storage

If all of your firearms are located in a safe in the basement, den, or home office and you are not in a nearby area in the event of a home invasion, you are now at a tactical disadvantage. If a thief knows you have a gun safe, they’ll be in and out of the safe in under 5 minutes.

Hidden Gun Storage

The concept of decentralized storage is to store your home defense firearms inside a secure cabinet throughout the home. When considering the best places to store a firearm, it’s important to consider the following factors:

  • The time spent in different rooms throughout the home
  • Specific rooms that contain valuable items
  • Various exit points from the home
  • The rooms that will be ignored in the event of a break-in
  • A room that can be utilized as a meeting place if multiple people are in the home

In most scenarios, the first place an intruder will go is the master bedroom. This is generally where a number of highly valuable items are stored. After that, they’ll head to an office, the living room, then the dining room or basement. However, an intruder is likely to ignore any guest rooms, the kitchen or kitchen pantry, and closets. These areas of the home are the first places that should be considered when setting up decentralized storage.

Gun Storage Systems for Home Defense

Master Bedroom

 

 

Hidden Gun Safe - Under the Bed

The Fast Box Model 47 can be conveniently hidden under the bed by mounting to your steel bed frame. You also spend a great deal of time in this room when you are home. Having one defensive firearm located either under the bed or in the closet (Vertical Kit required for a vertical application) to maintain a tactical advantage. You can conveniently store a firearm underneath your bed by mounting a Fast Box Model 47.

Guest room

Hidden Gun Storage - Bedroom

Typically, a spare bedroom or guest room contains nothing of great value. It’s a room for spare linens, out-of-season attire, and cleaning supplies. If your home has one, it is a room a thief will ignore. Consider storing an Agile Model 52 in a guest room and also, utilizing it as a safe meeting place if multiple people are living in the home. From a tactical standpoint, you have a greater advantage now that everyone is together and armed.

Closets

FB-47-(3)

Coats, boots, hats and gloves, towels, and old holiday decorations. This is what a thief will find in most closets. Someone breaking into your home is not worried about what outerwear you might have. Also, keeping a Fast Box, or an Agile Mode 52 if the space is large enough, stored in a closet near the front door is beneficial should there ever be someone at the front door who is aggressive and threatening.

Kitchen

fastbox in pantry closet with a shotgun

It is unlikely that someone is looking to raid your spice rack if they’re going to go through the trouble of breaking into your home. Pots and pans are usually not at the top of the list of things a thief is looking to steal. Much like a guest room, a thief is likely to ignore the kitchen. Also, consider that people tend to spend a lot of time in the kitchen when they are home. If your cabinets or pantry have enough space, storing a Fast Box with a Vertical Kit within the kitchen is a smart option. You’re able to keep a firearm concealed, secure, and accessible in the event of an emergency situation. Kitchens also tend to have an exit point from the home making it easier for you to arm yourself and get out of harm’s way.

Defending Yourself & Your Loved Ones

In the event of a home invasion, the ultimate goal should be to arm yourself and exit the home immediately. If a swift exit is not possible, arming yourself for protection of you and your loved ones is crucial. The concept of single-location storage does not afford gun owners with the ability to quickly obtain a home defense firearm. The Fast Box hidden gun storage and the Agile product line allow you to securely store firearms throughout the home and keep them hidden yet accessible. While the odds of a home invasion can be low, the cost can be high. This is why it is critical to store your firearms for a tactical advantage.

Decentralization

Home Defense Firearms – The Four Places You Must Store Guns

Gun Storage for Personal Defense and to Foil Thieves Single-location gun storage no longer makes sense. Decentralized gun storage makes it tactically more effective to protect your family and much more difficult for gun thieves. They are opposing forces, the two basic security concerns when it comes to guns in the home.

Also, see Tom take one of these RSCs to task when he literally cuts through the competition to demonstrate how the gun safe industry is failing you!

Product Feature of the Week: TRUE Safe

Whatever happened to the days of gun safe companies providing a true level of security to their customers? Gun safes are supposed to keep thieves and those that shouldn’t have access away from your firearms and valuables. Instead, today’s gun safe market is cram full of products made from cheap materials and do not offer what they say they do. That is why we make the TRUE Safe.

This is a cement-filled double, steel-walled gun safe designed to keep out those that shouldn’t have access and protect your firearms. A TRUE Safe is far more likely to stop would-be thieves from cutting open your safe and give your firearms and valuables a fighting chance in a fire.

What You’ll Get

The TRUE Safe comes standard with CradleGrid Technology providing storage for eight (8) long-guns. You’ll be able to store rifles with optics attached and never need to re-zero. CradleGrid will also provide straight-line access and organizational awareness. You can inventory your firearms at a glance and never need to dig through guns to find other guns.

We do understand that some with a larger collection of firearms will require archival storage. In that event, we will offer a rod system for your TRUE Safe that will allow you to, depending on the size and shape, store 26 to 28 rifles or shotguns.

Features and Specifications

  • Five active locking bolts; 3-way configuration
  • Hardened steel bolts
  • Three plated, fixed deadbolts extend into the safe wall to prevent entry if hinges are removed

Introducing the TRUE Safe | A Gun Safe Overview

The Gun Safe Designed to Stop Thieves & Protect Your Firearms

This week at SecureIt: Ryan and Tom unveil the TRUE Safe – A cement filled double steel-walled gun safe. Watch as they go over the specs, benefits, and features. You’ll also learn about what went into the production of the safe and how it differs from other gun safes on the market today.

Product of the Week: The TRUE Safe

Over time, gun safes have evolved away from protection leaving gun safe owners with what are, essentially, heavy locking boxes. Locking boxes that typically have a single steel wall lined with corrosion-causing drywall and carpet. With a simple $10 saw, a thief can cut open such a “safe” in minutes. And, if you have a fire of any significance, your guns won’t survive.

That’s why we make the TRUE Safe. A double, steel-walled, cement filled gun safe made to protect your firearms and valuables. The TRUE Safe is far more likely to stop a would-be thief from cutting open your safe. Your guns will also have a true, fighting chance of surviving a fire.

TRUE Safe Features & Specifications

How to Efficiently Expand Your Gun Storage

Building a Modular Gun Storage System

This week at SecureIt: Ryan and Tom kick off the show with some industry news and then show off the Agile Quad Kit. They review the all the features, benefits, and how you can use it do better your firearm storage efficiency. You will also hear about our recent Instagram giveaways and details on how you can win prizes and product and Tom gives an update on the status of the True Safe.

Product of the Week: The Agile Quad Kit

The Agile Quad Kit consists of two Agile Model 52s and two Agile Model 40s. The idea behind the kit was to emphasize the modular nature of SecureIt’s intelligent firearm storage. Each kit can be expanded with more units from the Agile series to create a centralized storage system. The kit can also be broken apart and spread throughout the home for decentralized storage.

The kit comes standard with CradleGrid Technology (six upper cradles with bungees, three stock bases, the grid back grid panel) and the hardware to bolt each cabinet together. When bolting the cabinets together, we recommend also bolting the quad system to the floor and/or wall for extra security and stability.

 

Re-Think Handgun Storage

Finding the Best in Handgun Storage

This Week at SecureIt: Ryan and Tom dive into the topic of handgun storage and handgun storage related accessories. They’ll go over all the storage products for pistols and revolvers offered by SecureIt and why a Fast Box could be the efficient storage system you need. Be sure to check out the video below to see the products in action!

Product Showcase of the Week: Handgun Storage Options

Pistol Pegs

Adding a Single Pistol Peg to your gun safe or gun wall is a convenient way to incorporate handguns into your rifle storage or create your own decked out handgun storage system. They hang from a single louver and can adjust on the fly. Each peg also comes with a rubber protective coating to protect the barrel of your revolver or pistol. Each pistol peg will store a handgun with a caliber of 9mm or larger and they come in three orientations:

Gun Wall - Pistol and Revolver Storage Options

Looking for something that holds a larger capacity? Our Eleven-Peg Rack holds a higher density of handguns and is a great fit for any retrofitted gun safe, Agile series cabinet, Model 84, or custom gun wall.

Gun Wall - High Density Handgun Storage

Storage Bins for Handguns

Our Medium Storage Bins allow gun owners to store smaller caliber handguns along with magazines, ammunition and associated gear. The Medium Bins have a storage capacity of 15lbs and come with a polymer divider. Dividers allow you to store multiple pistols in one bin while not having to worry about your guns becoming damaged from bumping into one another. These bins work great if you are storing pistols or revolvers in a Fast Box.

Gun Wall - Handgun Bin Storage

For larger handguns and additional support, the Large Storage Bins will provide storage for any size handgun, ammunition, and gear. With a storage capacity of 30lbs, it will be difficult to overload these bins. They also work great when disassembling your handguns and keeping all the associated parts organized in one safe place. The Large Bins are a great fit for any Agile series cabinets, Model 84, or custom gun wall.

Gun Wall - Handgun Bin Storage

The Fast Box Hidden Storage System

With a Fast Box hidden gun safe, handgun owners can store a number of pistols or revolvers along with associated ammunition and gear. The neoprene pad (standard with all Fast Boxes) adds a level of protection to the firearms and valuables you choose to store. When storing a Fast Box in a horizontal application, gun owners can store multiple handguns with an assortment of gear.

Product of the Week: Fast Box – Hidden Gun Storage

Fast Box Hidden Gun Safe

It’s a common conflict among many gun owners: The need to keep your firearms locked up and out of sight and the need for fast access to a defensive firearm in the event of a crisis situation. This is why SecureIt developed the Fast Box. The Fast Box hidden gun storage system solves this problem by allowing you to maintain fast access to your firearms without sacrificing security.

Hidden Gun Storage

The Fast Box Model 40 and Model 47 were designed for gun owners to have fast access in tight quarters. When it comes to security, it is inefficient to have just one centralized location for all of your firearms. By decentralizing your defensive firearms with the Fast Box system, you are able to store firearms under your bed, in a closet, the kitchen pantry, and even your vehicle.

Storage for Handguns

Applications for the Fast Box also go beyond rifle and shotgun storage. With a Fast Box hidden gun safe, handgun owners can store a number of handguns along with ammunition and gear. Installing the Fast Box 47 in a vertical orientation (Vertical Kit required), gun owners can store up to 14 handguns or a mixture of handguns and gear.

Gun Safe Upgrade – How to fix bad safe designs

The Problem with Gun Safe Interiors

This week at SecureIt, Ryan and Tom discuss how gun safe interiors are inefficient and can do more damage than good. They also highlight a simple solution to this problem and show you the quick step-by-step process for installing a Retrofit Kit.

Product of the Week: The Gun Saft Retrofit Kits

Retrofit Kits come standard with CradleGrid. Additional accessories are sold separately.

Traditional gun safes and cabinets provide an inefficient environment for your firearms. These storage systems force gun owners to put guns in front of guns, which leads to firearm damage. There’s also no capacity to adjust for gun height and no room for over-sized rifle scopes. Installing CradleGrid solves those problems. That’s why we make Gun Safe Retrofit Kits.

The Retrofit Kits come in four options: The Retrofit Kit 2 and Retrofit Kit 6, which are made from state-of-the-art, lightweight olefin, and the Steel 6 and Steel 12, which are made from 14 gauge steel. Each kit can be easily installed into your existing gun safe or cabinet or utilized in other applications.

Looking to create your own custom storage space? A Steel 6 kit can be installed on the wall.

Each cabinet configuration can be adjusted to how you want it and is compatible with all CradleGrid Accessories.

The Model 84 offers different configurations to meet your storage needs

In the past, we would overrun production on larger contracts of the Model 84 to offer a discount to our e-mail subscriber base. Now, with the increase in U.S. government spending and the steady boost to our foreign military sales, we are now able to offer the Model 84 to the general public at lower the price.

Ammo Storage Tips

The Facts about Ammo Storage

This week Ryan and Tom sit down to talk about storage systems for ammunition and the issue of misinformation within the industry. They also answer customer questions regarding recommendations for mounting the Agile series cabinets together and storing PMAGs in the magazine holder, and upcoming news and events at SecureIt.

Product of the Week: The 1824 Ammo Cabinet

In a sealed environment like a traditional gun safe, a large volume of ammunition can create a violent and dangerous explosion. The 1824 Ammo Cabinet features a diamond punch pattern on the front and sides so, in the event of a fire, ammo can safely cook-off. This compact military style cabinet can hold 400+ lbs. on each storage shelf so you can keep an ample amount of ammo organized and accessible. The cabinet can also provide storage for firearms and gear.

The Model 1824 adapts to any environment and can be reconfigured in minutes. Storage bins can be quickly repositioned on the louvered back panel or placed on a shelf for additional organization. The cabinet is compatible with all of our CradleGrid accessories to give you unlimited storage flexibility.
