Come Hell or High Water: Stack-On Total Defense Safes

Protecting against bad guys out to get your guns and valuables is one thing; resisting fire and flood is quite another. Safes that protect against this triple threat toss in peace of mind as a bonus. Stack-On’s Total Defense Safes do it all, and more. Armored on the outside, they also feature a drill-resistant steel plate behind the lock for added security. Four-way locking with seven individual 1 1/2-inch tapered live-action locking bolts and three 1-inch dead bolts provide a total of 10 locking points.

And when it comes to resisting the elements, they’re fire-resistant for 75 minutes and up to 1,400 degrees Fahrenheit. Plus, they’re guaranteed to stay dry in 2 feet of standing water for up to 72 hours when bolted to the floor. Should fire hoses or the local creek rising fill your basement, you’re good to go once water levels recede.

On the inside, Total Defense safes feature height-adjustable, carpeted barrel rests that provide flexibility to store MSRs, ARs or long guns. An included extra barrel rest allows you to configure the safe for convenient gun access or maximum gun capacity.

These fully carpeted, single-partition safes have two compartments that can be configured to hold guns in both compartments, storage in all compartments or half guns and half storage. Five adjustable shelves are included. Door Storage features sewn-in pockets and pistol holsters, and Molle Strips for accessory storage. Plus, there’s a factory-installed electrical socket for charging or powering electronic devices.

The 36-40 Gun Safe-Combination Lock-Grey model features a five-spoke handle and lock trim with a brushed nickel finish. It weighs 580 pounds, and also comes in a Silver-Black. This model is also available with an electronic lock or a biometric lock for added levels of security against any secret agents or industrial espionage. Larger and smaller safes are available as well.

In addition to protecting against a wide range of potential thievery, flood, earth, wind and fire scenarios, let’s also mention that Total Defense Safes also keep guns out of the reach of curious family members and friends who aren’t authorized to handle the contents.

Chalk up another benefit in the peace of mind category.
