What We Liked
What We Didn’t
Customizable Storage Capacity
SecureIt Agile Model 72 comes well equipped with innovative technology. Consisting of louvers, it makes sure that the user can hang different optional cradles, hangers, and bins in various positions. This way the gun storage can be customized to store guns of every shape and size, and other valuables.
For reference, the saddles sit at the bottom of the gun cabinet. The cradles are customizable in the terms of distance and height and can even help you accommodate Automatic Rifles, which incidentally most of the gun safes forget to take into account. No two firearms come in contact with each other. The whole setup looks aesthetically pleasing, organized, and ensures that the guns do not get damaged.
The Model 72 gun safe also does a credible job in dispelling old school myths that heavyweight cabinets are not agile. SecureIt ensures that even while being heavyweight, it is dependable and easily adjustable. Due to this fact, it can be considered an ideal placement in bedroom closets, condominiums, apartments, top floors of homes, or saferooms without bothering about the structural rigidity of the entire structure of the house.
The weight of just the model 72 weighs around 282 pounds after assembling it completely. It will start to weigh more after storing firearms and other accessories. It is still considerably lightweight to move and reposition with the help of one set of hands.
In case you require a helper, and you do not have the option, you can always assemble and disassemble to aid in the transportation process.
Electronic Lock System
The gun cabinet storage system is reliable, easy to access, and secure. As promised, it comes with a three-point locking system. Not only does it make your firearms safe, but they are also quick to access with the help of an electronic keypad. Many people prefer it over combination locks as turning the knob left and right can quickly become annoying, especially in a critical situation when your and your family’s well-being is threatened. It also ensures safety as nobody else without knowing the passcode will have access to it.
The electronic keypad is fully programmable and comes equipped with helpful instructions. It is powered by a 9-volt battery and is rechargeable. It alerts the user of battery status by a helpful blinker in case of low power. The agile model 72 gun cabinet also comes with two skeleton keys that allow you to override electronics and access the safe manually in case of battery failure and other miscellaneous electronic faults.
Pieces are shipped individually, and it can be assembled at the final place making them easy to assemble. The safe itself comes in numerous sizes, including an attractive stackable model. You can also upgrade parts by buying Fast Boxes, even retrofit kits, and hidden safes for already existing models. Interestingly, SecureIt offers the general public a similar level of ammo cabinets and firearms as they sell to law enforcement and the military.
Many users have been impressed by how fast it took them to assemble the parts and how easy the process was, unlike the usual frustrating process of assembly. For the benefit of the buyers, it comes with pre-cut holes on all of its sides, except for the front. It has four holes on the bottom, back, and top and each of the sides sport six holes. It helps in quick mounting on any surface desired. People have creatively used the holes to stack multiple cabinets, side to side, or on top of each other, depending on needs and space.
