There are around 13 million Stack-On® gun boxes in AmericaThat’s 13 million gun cabinets that do not properly store modern rifles and shotguns. The challenge with traditional firearms storage solutions is they do not take into account the size and form factor of modern sporting rifles or traditional rifles with scopes.
SecureIt® Conversion Kits Solve the ProblemHere we have a typical Stack-On® gun cabinet. In this example, the cabinet has an advertised capacity of 14 rifles. As you can see there is no way you will come close to fitting 14 modern sporting rifles in this cabinet. The plastic barrel holder does not provide the proper standoff for AR platform firearms or traditional rifles with scopes. The guns end up leaning against each other and the risk of damage is greatly increased.
Upgrading Your Stack-On CabinetBelow, we are using the SecureIt® Rapid 6 conversion kit. Rapid 6 Conversion Kit SecureIt’s patented gun safe conversion kits feature CradleGrid™ technology, allowing you to upgrade your existing gun cabinet or gun safe to properly store modern sporting and tactical rifles, as well as traditional rifles and shotguns. Each conversion kit features an assortment of adjustable firearm storage components and is designed to address a wide variety of applications at affordable price points.
SecureIt Rapid 6 Retrofit Kit installed in-cabinetThe louvered grid panels are installed on the back of the Stack-On cabinet
In this installation, we used peel and stick Velcro®. It works really well and is fast and easy to install. The Velcro strips are placed horizontally since this install will only hold the rifle cradles and support little additional weight. There is not much vertical load on the grids in this configuration so, there is not much need for a lot of Velcro. If you are going to use a lot of bins to store accessories and gear, run three strips of Velcro vertically, the length of each grid. This will provide maximum shear strength and allow you store in excess of 50 lbs of rifles, accessories, and gear on the grids, using the movable components of the CradleGrid system.
Proper storage for modern firearmsHere we see how to properly store modern and traditional firearms together in one cabinet. The SecureIt Tactical CradleGrid system provides the proper standoff from the back of the cabinet. It provides proper spacing for storing all modern sporting rifles (AR15, AR10, AK47, etc.) and rifles with scopes, and is quickly adjustable to accommodate the widely varying lengths of firearms today. Stack-On gun cabinet upgrade, using a SecureIt Rapid 6 retrofit kit which leverages CradleGrid technology.
