Whether you’re an everyday user or an avid collector, properly securing your firearms is always a priority. A lot of thought goes into picking the right safe or vault door to protect your guns. Sometimes the focus on picking the right outside means the organization inside gets overlooked. Here are some tips to make sure you get the best usage out of your home safes.
Invest in Built-In Organization
For many, having a small pistol box is enough to house their hand-held firearms or small valuables. However, if the collection you want to secure is too large for a pistol box, you should consider how you’ll arrange your items in an appropriately-sized safe. For large safes, a great option is a door organizer, which gives more space within the safe for valuables as the organizer’s pockets can store many items. These are also a quick solution, easily changed out or replaced if needed.
The value of safes and safe organizers isn’t just for gun owners either. Upgrades to large safes can secure valuables like heirlooms and expensive jewelry. A jewelry cabinet insert adds needed storage and provides drawers, dividers, and jewel cases for the best organization. A set of cabinets and drawers allows an easy system for cataloging and inventorying your collection.
If either of these options won’t fulfill your needs, check out our customizable drawer and storage options which are compatible with our large and walk-in vaults.
Accessorize for Added Safety
In addition to storage options, picking certain accessories can add features that will help in maintaining your gun safe organization. LED light strips lining the inside of a safe provide visibility even in the event of a power outage. Light strips are also normally adhesive and removable, meaning you can change the location as needed.
While it may not necessarily add to the overall organization, a keypad security light is a good investment. Adding a security light allows you easy access to any safe, whether it’s placed in a low-light area of your home or access is needed to it in the dark.
