If you want to use your gun safe to the fullest, the best way to do that is to find the gun safe accessories that suit your needs and your gun collection. There are many gun safe accessories separated into different categories to help you save space, maintain the right humidity level or to improve the safety of your gun safe.
The best part about them is that you can use them all or you can use only one of them. They will improve the quality of the gun safe and they will save you more space than you can imagine. As you can see, there are two main purposes of gun safe accessories – the storage solutions and the better quality of the safe and now I want to show you the most popular gun safe accessories in both categories.
There are few gun safe accessories that are considered gun safe parts and they come with a few gun safe models. Most of those gun safe parts are there to double the storage space in your gun safe and the most popular gun safe part is the door organizer. I am sure you have seen that there are many high capacity gun safes that come with door organizer.
The door organizer might be between the gun safe accessories and the gun safe parts but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other interesting parts on the market. Today I want to show you all the gun safe accessories and parts you can use to improve your gun safe interior and exterior because gun safe accessories and parts are all about improvement.
Best Gun Safe Accessories On The Market
Gun Safe Accessories – Storage Solutions
Gun Safe Door Organizer
The first gun safe accessory/part I want to show you I have already mentioned and it is the door organizer. A door organizer is one of the best gun safe accessories because it is a universal part. It is an accessory that fits every large gun safe but you have to be sure that you have picked the right model of the door organizer.
A door organizer is a storage solution you can hang on the inside of the door of your gun safe. Most of the time they are filled with pockets and pouches for handguns, ammo or other small items, but there are few door organizers that have straps for long guns and documents too. The number and type of pockets and pouches depend from type to type when it comes to one of the popular gun safe accessories – door organizers.
There are door organizers which are made by some brand (for example AMSEC or Liberty) and they usually fit the gun safes made by the same brand. But, there are few gun safe brands that make universal door organizers which mean you can use them in the variety of gun safe models. If you are interested in the door organizers as the gun safe accessories then I suggest you read my post about door organizers because you can see which ones are the best.
Gun Safe Racks and Hangers
The second type of gun safe accessories for more storage space you want to know about is the gun safe rack. The gun safe rack is mostly made for handguns and it is made for medium and large gun safes. Most small gun safes don’t have the space for these gun safe accessories so I won’t mention them here, but let’s get back to the gun safe accessories.
The gun safe rack is a rack you can put on the shelf in your gun safe which can store the different number of pistols (depending on the size). It holds your pistols so you can grab them by the handle and it keeps your shelf organized.
The gun safe hanger is one of the most interesting gun safe accessories because you have to hang it from the shelf and put the pistol on the hanger through the barrel. That way you can save a lot of storage space because the pistol can hang between the rifle rack and the hanger.
If you are interested in both of those gun safe accessories, you can learn more about them and their models in my post about Gun safe racks right here.
Gun Safe Magnets
This is one of those gun safe accessories that is not strictly attached to the gun safes. You can put gun safe magnets on any surface you want, that can be your work desk, bedside table, gun safe, cabinet or any other surface.
Most gun safe magnets come with a tape on the back side or pre-drilled holes so you can mount them to any surface you want and I suggest you mount them, not glue them because mounting is a more permanent solution.
The best type of magnet for this situation is the Neodymium magnet, which is one of the most powerful magnets in the world. Those types of magnets are permanent and they won’t lose their abilities so you can be sure that the product is made of high-quality materials.
If you think that gun safe magnets are gun safe accessories you are looking for I suggest you take a look at my post Gun Safe Magnets.
Gun Safe Accessories – Improving Quality Of The Gun Safe
Gun Safe Lighting
The gun safe lighting is the type of gun safe accessories that will improve the quality of the safe in a way that you can actually see in the safe during dark. When you are in a hurry and you want to open the safe to grab your favorite gun (I know you have it), you have to see what is happening in the safe.
If you think that you don’t need gun safe lighting in the high capacity gun safe, you are wrong. That gun safe accessory helps you keep the interior organized and it really helps you during the search for that special rifle/handgun. You can grab the gun safe light that runs on batteries or you can grab the one with the power cord, just make sure you have the place to plug the power cord in.
If you don’t have gun safe light, but you have a high capacity gun safe I suggest you read my post about gun safe light kit because you will be very satisfied with those gun safe accessories once you install them.
Gun Safe Cover
This is one of those unusual gun safe accessories because it goes outside the safe and not inside the safe. The gun safe covers have the same purpose as any other cover for any other product on the market – protection.
The gun safe covers will protect your gun safe from debris and dust, which is not needed if you put the gun safe in your living room, bedroom or office. The gun safe cover is a good idea if you store your gun collection in gun safes in the basement or attic, rooms where you don’t go too often.
There is one more purpose for a gun safe cover and that is the protection from curious people who want to know where have you put your gun collection. There are a few interesting gun safe covers that can make your safe look like an ordinary cabinet. Just don’t expect too much from them.
If you have put your gun safe in the basement or the attic, check out my list of best gun safe covers to make sure that your gun safe is protected from dust and debris as well from thieves.
Gun Safe Dehumidifier
One of the most important gun safe accessories you can get is the gun safe dehumidifier because it keeps the moisture away from your gun collection and documents (if you store them in the same safe). If you have too much humidity in the air the guns can develop rust which is very dangerous because you might end up with a broken pistol.
There are two main types of dehumidifiers and those gun safe accessories you can choose your own preferences and desires. I don’t want to get in the details now so I will just say that one dehumidifier type requires the power source (outlet/batteries) and the other doesn’t.
If you want to improve the air quality in your safe and you want to remove the humidity you should definitely get a gun safe dehumidifier. Before you get one read my post about Gun Safe Dehumidifiers so you can see which one suit you better.
