There are a number of different dehumidifiers on the market today and knowing the difference of each will save you time and money in the long run.

Desiccant Packs

51K-3ZxllNL._SL160_Desiccant Packs are similar to those like white gel packets you find in your new box of shoes.  Unlike the other gun safe dehumidifiers, desiccant packs do not require batteries or electricity. They usually come in a pack of 4-10, and have a totally different way of ‘recharging’ themselves. The moisture in in these packs have to released by heating them in the oven. This is called recharging. Though effective, it can be a hassle to cook your packs every so often.

Gun Safe Dehumidifier Rods


Gun safe dehumidifier rods will dehumidify your gun safe in a totally different way than the desiccant packs listed above.  These rods actually work by increasing the air temperature inside your safe gradually, and maintaining it constantly. The biggest downside about these rods is that they need to be plugged in. So for those who do not have a pre-drilled hole provided by their safe manufacturer, you may want to look at other options. For those who do decide to get a dehumidifier rod, you will not be disappointed. These things are highly effective, and easy to install.

Rechargeable Dehumidifiers


The newest type of gun safe dehumidifiers on the market today, rechargeable dehumidifiers are small, affordable and very convenient.  They work the same as the desiccant products reviewed above, but do not need to be ‘refreshed’ by an oven. Instead, they are able to get rid of its moisture while plugged into an electrical outlet. So not only will you be ‘recharging’ the internal battery, you will also be refreshing your your unit at the same time. There is also a gauge located in the front of the unit to indicate when you need to do so. The best thing about this product is cordless which makes it perfect for gun safes.

Eliminate the dark-Lights for gun safe

Gun safe lighting is usually the first addition gun safe owners buy for their safes. Gun safe lighting is important because of how deep and dark those large gun safes can be.  If you are an organized person or are just tired of carrying over your desk lamp whenever you need to access your safe, you should definitely look into buying some lights for your gun safe. They are bright, small, and very affordable.

There are a few gun safe lighting options today that buyers should look into before making a purchase. Gun safe lights come in light kits, cordless, and LED options. We hope to help you find some lights that will fit perfectly in your personal gun safe.

Stack-On SPAL-300 Motion Sensitive LED Gun Safe Lighting


We love these Stack-On SPAL-300 LED Lights because they just offer so many features that other lights do not. First of all, as the names states, these things are motion sensitive, which means they will turn on the instant you open your safe. It contains 3 lights (each with 4 LEDS), that are all able to pivot in whatever direction you want, and have 2 brightness settings.

You can mount this bad boy in two ways, via mounting plate or hook and eye tape which is included. As with all safes, we encourage everyone to stay away from using the tape though, as they tend to fall off after a few weeks, even days. Finally, no wires here, the SPAL-300 is totally battery operated.

Lockdown Cordless 6 LED Vault Light


Contending with the Stack-On LED Light above is this Cordless LED Vault Light by Lockdown. It comes in at a close second compared to its contender for a few reasons.  First off, it does not have motion sensor capabilities, which to us, is one of the coolest things a vault light can do. Also, another issue we had was that the battery life on these lights seemed to be less than the SPAL-300′s. We do love how this lighting fixture comes with magnets, which we believe all gun safe lighting should have, but it wasn’t enough for us to call it the best on our list.

4 Clever Hidden Gun Safe Options and One Bad Idea

Often the quickest and most convenient way to safely store guns is by buying a gun safe. However, there are many clever gun owners that have come up with surprising ways to conceal their firearms while safely storing them out of the reach of children and thieves.

We’ve got five ways listed below that can get your creative juices flowing too. While they many not be feasible for everyone, seeing examples of thinking outside the box (in this case, thinking outside of the safe!) can help you come up with your own custom hidden gun safes.

It can also help limit cost – some of these solutions provide extra protection (like building a safe into a closet wall). Others are more expensive than a standard gun safe (like the shipping container idea!).

Any way you decide to move forward, make sure that the guns are unable to be accidentally discharged by storing them without ammunition and storing ammo away from the guns. Also, if there are kids around or if you have a lot of visitors or parties, your storage solution absolutely must be able to be secured by a high quality lock. Finally, remember that your overall goal is the art of deception. What thieves can’t find, they can’t steal.

First up is this amazing soda machine converted to a gun safe submitted on reddit by user Hartf1jm, pictured below.

Where’s the gun safe, you ask? Exactly my point – you could never tell that there are guns stashed inside – check out all the images and explanation at this page. People buy soda machines all the time for nostalgic reasons, and to store their soda of course, so it’s not unusual that a person would have one in their home. Overall building a safe like this means that you are completely relying on deception to prevent theft of your guns, which is a huge upside, because most people would probably ignore the machine and look for valuables elsewhere. It is also an extremely frugal option – machines like these go on Craigslist for $50 to $100.

The major downside is that there aren’t any features such as a UL listed lock or thick steel walls that would prevent a thief from breaking in if he knew that there were valuable items inside. It definitely wouldn’t pass the basic Residential Security Container test, and person with a crowbar could be inside the machine in just a minute.

Our advice if you do decide to go with something like this is to never tell anyone that you don’t trust completely about it. Say you’re having a get together, and you want to show off your latest project on your workbench to some folks you met recently, and one of them looks across the basement and sees your soda machine, and asks if it actually works – just tell them it doesn’t, and don’t let on that it’s a safe. Many burglaries happen because the wrong person got just a bit of inside knowledge and took advantage.

Another option for someone looking for a cheap way to deceptively hide guns in plain sight is a classic – the old hollowed out book. While you may have disregarded it because it seems like something that only exists in cartoons, it actually is a legitimate option for storing a handgun. has a great detailed tutorial on how to make your own version of this “gun safe” here.

Now “gun safe” is in parenthesis for a reason – because it’s not a gun safe at all! There are multiple major disadvantages to this approach to firearm storage. First, if you live in California, it doesn’t meet the basic requirements of the Firearm Safe and Responsible Responsible Access Act, which requires that guns be stored in such a way that children could not have access to them. I’m not a lawyer, so don’t take my opinion as the truth on the matter, but it sure seems to me that a book on a shelf does not meet the requirements of the law.

Second, an experienced thief might know to look for this sort of thing, and it would be a simple and quick thing to quickly knock all your books on the ground to see what might fall out.

Third, it would be easy to accidentally knock your gun to the ground while trying to get a book off the shelf. This could lead to unintended discharge and injury, not to mention property damage.

Using hollowed out books seems feasible only if you own a small handful handguns at most and if you live alone with no visitors – but this is the bad option referred to in the title of this page!

An unusual but really good option for a hidden gun safe involves buying a gun safe and then building it into your home’s structure. Clever reddit user shikijiyu shows in this post how he went from this:

to this:

This is not only an attractive way to install a gun safe in your house, it actually increases security. Because this safe is stored in a tight place in a closet, a would-be thief is more limited in his options for getting into it. It’s much harder, if not impossible, to swing an axe properly in the tight quarters of a small closet. So, simple blunt force tools will not be as effective as they would be if the safe were out in the open in your basement. A thief with power tools still wouldn’t have too much of a problem sawing through the safe door, so if you decide to go this route, consider how you can better hide away any Sawzalls, circular saws, chainsaws, acetylene torches, or anything else that could be used to cut through metal.

This method is also deceptive as the safe door can be hidden behind stacked boxes and hanging clothing. It also allows you to create a solid wooden frame around the safe that you can bolt the safe to multiple times in multiple directions. Bolting the safe down from the inside is one of the most important things you can do for the security of your safe, so the more bolts the better.

Overall this option is more complicated and expensive than simply buying a gun safe, as you will have to either take the time to do it yourself or hire the job out. We’d recommend taking this on yourself for obvious reasons – the fewer people who know about your gun stash the better! Another drawback is that not everyone has closet space to sacrifice to a gun safe.

If you do choose to do something like this, the Snap Safe Super Titan is a great option because it has thick 8 gauge steel walls and because it’s modular. Because you can carry it up stairs in pieces and put it together wherever you want it, it’s more convenient than lugging a 500 to 1,000 pound safe up a flight of stairs!

Another option similar to this would be to build your very own gun vault:

The folks over at 3 acres and 3 thousand sq ft describe how they used some space in their basement to construct a gun vault from cinder block walls. The vault door was bought from a company that sells safe doors, although these can be found on eBay and occasionally Craigslist if you’re lucky!

The major advantages to something like this is obvious – it’s very secure and it’s huge! You’ll never run out of space to store guns and other valuables for sure!

If you choose to build something like this, though, be sure to consult a professional, even if you decide to build it yourself.

Last, but not least, is the most impressive hidden gun safe and unusual option – buying a shipping container and burying it in your backyard! If you’ve never heard of this before, it’s actually more common than you might think.

A container like this can cost between $1,000 and $3,000, which may surprise you because that’s the same price range as a quality gun safe! However, the cost goes up as this is a major construction project. First, you have to pay to have it shipped to your property. Then, you’ll have to dig a hole big enough for it and prepare a foundation. Then, you’ll need to create gabion baskets to surround the container to provide structural support so the walls don’t cave in and to provide drainage. Then, you’ll need to create a quality, locking, hidden access door. Then, you’ll need to find a way to dehumidify such a large space so your guns don’t rust. Is that enough steps to convince you that this is the most expensive option in this article?

There are some cool advantages to doing this, though. First, you have a nice storm shelter if you live in a part of the country prone to tornadoes. Second, you’ll have more than enough space for your guns – and probably more than enough space for a cool man cave. Third, if your access door to the container is well hidden, no thief would be thinking to look for underground gun storage.

Hopefully this helped get your creative juices flowing – there’s always more than one way to get things done, and this is never more true than with gun storage. Just be sure to use your head, stay safe, and keep your guns locked up and out of the hands of kids, and you should be good to go!

Paragon 7775 Lock and Safe Review


The Paragon 7775 Lock and Safe is one of the newer products being offered from Paragon Lock and Safe. This safe is quite versatile and able meets the needs of handgun owners. Not to mention that this safe is a screaming deal, weighing in at less than $300.

Customers appreciate the ease of use and price and have said things such as,

“This safe is great! I bought it for my mom and she loves it. The setup was simple and it’s easy to use, I recommend this for anyone at any age. It was worth every penny”

Paragon 7775 Lock and Safe is constructed with 11 gauge solid steel. The safe is 51 pounds and is therefore not easily taken from the location that you put it in. In addition, the doors on the inside also have tamper proof hinges installed with the added benefit of the door opening to the right.

  • The safe due to its large weight is hard to move, however, this may not prevent the most determined thieves. To circumvent this issue this safe has had pre-drilled holes specially installed into the safe along with included bolts so that the consumer has the option of bolting the safe into place. This can save the consumer hours of work as drilling into safes can be difficult and very time consuming.
  • Paragon 7775 Lock and Safe allows the consumer the option of programming a key code for entry or using the 2 included keys. Some consumers may not feel protected with one or the other and may want to use both, or some consumers may ultimately decide that the hassle of keeping track of a key is too much and just use the key code.

The safe is ideal for an individual who has a collection of items that need to be stored permanently in one place and to protect your valuables from those who they need to be kept away from. The drawback of the size of the safe is mitigated by the ability to bolt it into place. In addition, the options of using a key code or a regular key are ideal. Paragon 7775 Lock and Safe is long lasting and reliable and any consumer would be happy with the purchase.

Potential disadvantages for this safe include:

  • Not being fire rated. This safe is not tested to withstand fires, and wasn’t design to protect your belongs in case of one. If you want fire protection then you should look for another safe – and be prepared to pay more.
  • There are reports of the lock being easily bypassed, specifically by this Amazon reviewer:

    I would think this safe would be great if they just put a locking mechanism on it that does not open simply by hitting the top of the safe…All you need to do is hit the top a couple times while turning the knob and then it opens right up.

Because of this reported flow, we recommend this safe as a deterrent to theft only. It can also serve to keep guns properly stored and out of the way of daily life. But for secure storage that can better withstand theft attempts and keep children out – your best bet is probably another safe.

Best safes for carrying small guns in your car

If you have a handgun, you should know the enormous responsibility that its ownership bestows upon you when you have to carry it around with you in or out of your car.In some states, this may enable you to defend yourself while you are away from your home.The law usually requires you to have a conceal carry permit for it. Anyone who is more than 18 years old and is not a threat to the people around them can carry a handgun in some states.

Reason to have a car safe

1.For interstate transportation.It’s reckless, in most states possibly prohibited, to put your gun in the glove compartment or simply conceal it under a paper or towel on your seat.Most of the time they require the firearm to be kept unloaded in the trunk of a car or in a locked container which makes it not directly accessible.If you wish to carry it otherwise know about the concealed carry law in that state.

2.Concealed carrying guns.Though you can conceal a weapon in a glove box or hostlers but it is better and secure to keep it locked in a quick and easy access gun safe.

3.Carrying a gun weather concealed or not is not allowed in various government and educational institution.So when away from your car It is advisable to keep it locked and hidden in the car to prevent them from smash and rob situations.

4.To protect them from unauthorized hands like children and others who might also be traveling or driving your automobile.

Security features

Body make

Security of a small safe can be judged based on how easily the safe can be pry open specially its door and not the body. You know like kids who will try to open it without any trail marks or a casual thief who is trying to open it silently. However one cannot be assured of security against a theft or robbery with even slightly bigger tools when you are not present for considerable time at home or even away from your car.In that case no small safe can offer you ultimate security. A hard blow with a hammer or cutter can open a small safe anyway. In case you leave it in your car you should only consider a smash,grab and run situation where thief do not have enough time to pry open with paper clip or run countless combination.He also cannot make much noise to actually cut open the safe.In that case you mostly cannot avoid the unwanted.


Small gun safes locks are not the same as in bigger safe.They are of far lower quality and so most of them can be picked.Pin tumbler locks as in gunvault nano can be picked with clips Bump keys etc,auto jiggles etc.Biometric like the gun vault MVB 1000 shown below have tubular backup lock(as is mostly the case) can be picked with tubular pick.Other than this there is also possibility of opening the lock if one can reach to the locks internal hinge with a wire or rod etc through a hole on the safe body. That’s why a good safe don’t have holes or if there is the locking mechanism is unreachable in closed condition.

PS Electronics locks on bolt type front opening door safe like barska etc are easy to open by just bumping the safe few times and information about it is all over the youtube.

So we consider safe with mechanical locks as the best handgun safe for ultimate reliability, but in case you think that these picking attack are not always a threat or you don’t leave your vehicle in unsafe area for long you can also consider other lock type as mentioned below.

Why You Should Invest in Rifle Rods

Welcome to the complete review of rifle rods.  Gun Storage Solutions promote this product as the best way to save space in your safe, but are these rods really the ultimate firearm safe accessory?

The Thirty Second Review:

These rods are  are an accessory to the safe for rifles that gun enthusiasts love.They are not a perfect product, but they are easy to implement, quickly allowing you to expand the space in your firearm safe, which can obviously save you from purchasing another one or just help you clean things up. Additionally the firearm rods are a versatile accessory allowing you to use them in gun cabinets, or even in closets, just be sure to keep them locked!  As mentioned these rods are not a flawless product, there is a small chance the rods could dislodge in your gun, sometimes the rods do not fit a particular rifle as snugly as you would like, and they do add to the risk of corrosion because the guns are packed in so tight.  Ultimately, the pros outweigh the cons because the most serious cons can be mitigated through routine firearm care.

itSo the features sound great, but lets look at the actual benefits, and address some of the possible concerns which gun enthusiasts just like you have expressed regarding rifle rod use.

Increase Accessibility – At first glance you may think that these gun rods make actually make it harder to get guns in and out of your safe.  The folks over at Sniper Hide Forum suggest that those guns you don’t use as much, maybe the family heirlooms etc, get placed at the back of the safe and those rifles you use more often get positioned at the front of the safe.  Furthermore, there is a general consensus that because the guns are so securely fastened into place that it is far easier to get your rifles in and out with scratches or wear and tear.

Versatility – amazingly, you can use these storage solutions in a wide range of firearm safes and other types of gun storage such as closets and cabinets. And, you can also position them vertically at a place you will find convenient thus making them flexible options. In addition, they also work perfectly with a wide variety of rifles and long guns.

You will have to remove the detachable shelves in the storage solution and replace them with the easy to fit rods. Once installed rifle rods, will help you stabilize your gun and hold it upright. When the guns are held upright, they will easily fit in the available space. One Amazon reviewer suggests that you can fit 30% more into your safe.  The video below from Gun Storage Solutions clearly demonstrates how easy the rods are to implement, and how much space you can save.

Cost-effective – Another common thread among gun enthusiasts is that the main benefit behind these gun safe accessories is they can help you put-off buying another safe for your rifle collection.  Saving yourself hundreds of dollars while at the same time improving your safes organization is a win win situation.Top Safe Accessory Pros:– Expand your space

Possible Put-offs When Considering This New Gun Safe Accessory

Although they allow you to maximize the use of storage space and help with accessibility, nonetheless, the rods have some cons which you should also consider:

Invasive – pushing rods into your rifle does not seem like such a great idea.  Many folks have suggested that a big problem with the rods can be having a small part of the rod break off and lodge in your gun.  As you can imagine this could lead to injury.  However, Gun Storage Solutions has made a quality product with injection molded plastic,and this would be highly unlikely.  But it goes without saying always inspect your firearms before use.

One Size Fits All – These rods are designed to fit into a variety of rifles, and so they do not always have a perfect fit.  This could make them a bit sloppy when the bore is wider than average, or if the gun is shorter.  In fact you may need to create a booster shelf in your safe to ensure shorter rifles fit properly into your safe.

Corrosion – One sceptical commenter on the Sniper Hide message board suggests that because of the close proximity of rifles, that you could end up with a corrosion problem.  However, even those that have used these safe accessories long term suggest that this has not been a problem.  Even still, I would suggest picking up and dehumidifier if you do not already have one, or picking up a larger one if you live in a humid climate.

Cons Summary:

– Invasive rods could dislodge in your gun is not properly used
– These rifle rods are one size fits all, but that means they don’t always fit well
– Corrosion could be a more likely problem if you do not properly address the issue

In conclusion, these rods are great gun safe accessories for upgrading any kind of storage solution.  Effectively organize your space better making it easier to get your rifles in and out of your safe and preventing you from needing to upgrade to a larger safe.  Gun Storage Solutions sells these rifle rods in small, medium, and larger packs, check here for the latest price.

What’s This? A Gun Safe Door Organizer With Easy Installation

Welcome to our review on a great gun safe door organizer by Cannon. The Cannon Safe 9000-Pistol 2009 Door Panel Organizer provides all that you are looking for, if you want a quality gun safe organizer.

The Skinny on Cannon’s Door Safe Organizer

Some of the main benefits of this safe accessory are the easy to use installation clips, with no drilling needed.  Customization of the panel thanks to Velcro holsters.  The ability to fit both small in large safes, and all at an affordable price.  But of course this gun safe door organizer is not a flawless product.  It has been suggested that the material used to make to panel isn’t of the highest quality, and although it will fit any safe, it is primarily made for Cannon safes.  In the end  we suggest that this is one of the best  on the market, but you will need to read on to get all the details.

Organizer Panel = Firearm Safety?

Obviously, the primary advantage to having a door panel is to organize your firearm safe . But to add to that rather apparent perk this should add to safety of firearm safe in your home. An organized safe is one in which you can quickly take an inventory meaning you can insure all firearms are accounted for, and therefore securely in your safe.

  1. The product features six configurable holsters with Velcro backing, designed for quick and easy positioning.  It also includes two multi-utility pockets for additional storage, and requires no drilling thanks to easy to use clips.

One of the primary benefits of this particular door panel organizer is the fact it is easily installed using the aforementioned clips, so it doesn’t need to be screwed in or attached an in other way.  This means you have more time at the range and less frustrating assembly time.

Installation Summary:

• The Cannon gun safe door organizer panel can be hooked behind most safe doors with the height of 60 to 70 inches. Using the hook and loop fasteners, the holsters and pockets easily attach to the panel.
• The kit comes with 6 holsters that you can easily reposition trough the Velcro design.
• It has a felt like panel that you can hang on the back of the door of the safe.
• The kit has two mesh pockets.
• The kit is designed for thin back door cover or for slots. If the door has a fire liner or a drywall, you can bend the clips so that they fit.

Customize Your Organizer Panel Accessory

The Amazon reviews also suggest that the another great feature of this product is the configurable holsters that can be easily reposition because they are Velcro-ed on. This allows you to customize your gun door organizer, and one particular reviewer suggests that this will let you put the bigger guns higher on the door organizer panel so that when the safe door opens and closes it will not swing off the door. Alternatively, you could find a way to secure the lower part of the panel by screwing or fastening it, but arranging your pistols from big (top) to small (bottom) keeps the door panel secure.

The multi purpose pockets are also very useful in storing little items that create clutter on your safes shelves. You can place your knives, your jewelry, your badges, insignias, and the like into these multi-purpose pockets without worrying about them getting scratched or collecting dust.

Small and Large Gun Safe Accessory:

Another Great benefit to this gun safe door organizer is that it can fit smaller or larger safes of all types, Liberty, Sentry, Winchester and of course Cannon.  If you start by purchasing one for a smaller safe and then down the line you want to upgrade to a larger safe, you can detach the door panel, purchase another, and place both on your new safe.  Just keep in mind that the dimensions of the product are 3.8 x 17 x 7.  Of course if you already have a larger safe then you could always buy one panel to see if you like the product, and buy a second if you think it’s worth the price.

Pros of Cannon’s Safe Door Organizer

Affordable Price
Frees up space in your safe
Helps with firearm safety
Easy Installation
Fits a variety of safe sizes

Not Another Bias Review?

Just like any product, the safe door organizer panel is not a perfect product. First is that it was designed primarily for Cannon safes. The hook does not fit in bigger firearm safe doors. Nevertheless, you can still adjust the hook to fit thicker doors or find another way to install it.

Next, the materials used for the product may initially seem cheap and you might just get an impression that they are not the highest of quality. But really this should be expected because the Cannon door organizer is very affordable. One Reviewer suggests that even though he was initially put off by the poor quality of the material that his organizer is still attached to his safe door, and no holsters have fallen off, which is the most important fact.

Cons Summarized

Although it fits a variety of safes Cannon safe owners will have the easiest time installing
The door safe panel can tend to swing if pistols are not positioned properly
The material is not the highest of quality

The Final Word On this Gun Safe Accessories

Rifle Rods

Pistol Hangars and Racks

Opening up your gun safe to view your row of pistols displayed at on the top shelf, is a thing of beauty.  But these hangars and racks also save space in your safe and keep all of your pistols visible and easily accessible. Look for a product that is made with vinyl coated metal for extra durability and ease. The most popular hangar, made by Gun Storage Solutions, holds up to four pistols or handguns. Another brand that customers love is Magnum, and they offer hangars that hold a single pistol or multiple handguns.  Read more about pistol hangars here.

While many gun safes come with built in racks to help you organize your collection of rifles, others do not, and so finding the perfect rack for your safe could be key, if your not big on the rifle rod approach mentioned above. Another Idea you may want to consider is having a magnetic rifle rack placed outside your safe.  This seems a little counter intuitive, but it can be a great place to rest a rifle while organizing your safe, or other such activities.
