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.

The electronic keypad is fully programmable and comes equipped with helpful instructions. It is powered by a 9-volt battery and is rechargeable.
