What is THE GUN BOX?

The Gun Box keeps guns safe, and It allows gun owners to quickly access their firearms when they need them most.

The Gun Box is built tough. It is die cast using aircraft strength aluminum alloy, which has a tensile strength of over 24,000 lbs per square inch and a melting temperature of over 1000 degrees.

The Gun Box opens one of 2 ways. The first is a radio frequency (RF) signature in a ring or wristband which is included with every box. The second is a biometric fingerprint reader which can store multiple fingerprints. The box can also be programmed to open with a combination of both the RF signature and the fingerprint reader.

The Gun Box Premier Model has the added safety feature of alert notifications.  Notifications will be sent to your phone when the box is opened, moved, or tampered with. Using GPS technology, you will know the exact location of the box while it is moving.

We’ve also added a few bonus features to the box for convenience. On the back of the Gun Box you will find 2 USB ports for charging phones and tablets or connecting other devices such as Bluetooth speakers.

The Gun Box has a battery backup so you can unplug The Gun Box and take it with you. When you turn off the battery switch on the bottom of the box the battery will last for days.

The Gun Box has mounting holes on the bottom of the box, it can be mounted under a cabinet on a wall, to a nightstand or in any orientation. It can also be secured using a Kensington lock and cable.
