Is there a monster under your bed? There should be! The monster vault is a new and innovative under-bed safe designed specifically to keep your firearms close by, secure, and hidden. It’s like the little brother of the bed bunker and another highly effective way to manage and store your firearms (or anything for that matter!). The monster vault brings an interesting take on the gun safe and presents a unique solution to the gun owner’s dilemma. Firearm owners have always wanted 3 basic things when it comes to a safe: security, proximity, and space though typically they have had to compromise for two out of three but not anymore. Here we’ll look at some of the basics of the monster vault and the details of what makes this a unique and interesting solution for gun owners.
Outside: 7” H x 48” W x 28” D.
Inside: 5” H x 44.5” W x 26” D.
Interior Cubic Feet: 3.35.
Weight: 140 pounds.
The monster vault is constructed with a double wall design of cold rolled steel with a minimum wall thickness of ⅛”. The basic design is a shallow box with a single drawer that slides in and out on rollers (it is important to note that the drawer’s glide capacity is limited to 100 pounds). The monster vault comes with a programmable digital combination lock and two half inch steel rods for a secure locking mechanism. Additionally the monster vault comes with pre-drilled access holes for floor mounting. Finally the monster vault is finished with a black powder coating inside and out to give it a cool sleek design. The bad news, however, is that the monster vault has no protection against fire or water damage. There is no fire rating and while it shouldn’t have any trouble with light condensation it will not react well to submersion in liquid.
As for burglar protection the monster vault has surpassed the California Department of Justice’s construction standard for gun safes. This is a good sign and bodes well for the quality of the monster vault’s construction.
There’s a lot of great things about this safe that can be attributed to its very clever design. Finally gun owners have a secure way to store their long guns without investing in a 1,000 pound stand up gun cabinet. This is a pretty big development and the monster vault is poised to fill this gap in the market with style. Additionally, and a very important point to make, is that the monster vault can be easily placed into most SUVs or trucks with relative ease. Again, there is a lack of serious security options when it comes to vehicles so it’s great to see another innovation available. All in all the monster vault presents a breath of fresh air in a world where the basic design for safes hasn’t changed in 100 years. There’s a lot of potential uses for the monster vault and so far reviews have been positive.
