Decluttering Design

This gun safe organizer is the perfect organization tool for those who take responsible gun ownership seriously. An organizer is first and foremost for those who like to make sure that the contents of their gun safe are arranged neatly.

If you have one in your gun safe, you'll have peace of mind knowing that your knives, holsters, mags, ammo, and of, course, your gun are not all over the place and are exactly where you'd like them to be Guns can get scratched because of clutter, which is why you really need to up your game in gun safe organization.

Space-saving Function

With an organizer, you'll get to make the most out of your shelf space. You get to free up space that smaller items like ammo and extra mags used to take up. The Stack-On SPAO-148 Gun Safe Organizer can be expanded to have up to 5 pockets, allowing you to increase the storage capacity of your gun safe. The topmost pocket is primarily for smaller items. It can be divided into three sections.

There's a strap right below that pocket, which functions as a tool belt where you can store items like handheld radios, knives, or flashlights. There is also a large pocket for larger items. Perhaps, you're eyeing an especially awesome combat knife but you couldn't bring yourself to finally purchase it because you think you don't have any space left; with an organizer, you might finally get that space you need.

Quick Access Design

Let's face it; opening your gun safe already takes some time, and when it's poorly organized, it could take a lot of time to get what you need. If you're a true-blue 2nd amendment enthusiast, you'll probably agree that it only takes a matter of time before slings, pistol grips, radios and other items start to interfere with each other inside your gun safe.

Before long, getting your favorite rifle out would result to a lot of clanging and banging. With this Stack-on organizer though, you can keep frequently used items such as ammo close at hand.

You can also keep smaller items like flashlights and important documents in the organizer; that way, you don't have to take everything out or dig through all the items in your safe just to find that Smith and Wesson .44 when you feel like taking it to the range. You'll be surprised at how quicker it is -- and less frustrating — to get something out of the safe.

Heavy Duty Build and Quality Materials

Stack-On's SPAO-148 is marketed as an organizer for lighter items such as ammo, mags, and protective eye-wear. However, it was built to handle heavier items like handheld radios and even multiple knives. The pockets are made of mesh material so you can easily see what's inside without having to dig through them.

Again, you get to save time because of that The pockets and the fabric that the organizer is made of look and feel heavy-duty and well-made. The adhesive could use some improvement, although for this price, it's not a big deal at all It could hold a number of loaded 30 round magazines.

Fits a wide range of Stack-on Cabinets

This organizer measures 30 by 8 (inches), so it should fit most 10-gun and 12-gun cabinets, especially those made by Stack-on. If you plan to use it on some 8-gun cabinets, check on the locking mechanism, and of course, verify the size of the door.

It's crucial to get the dimensions of your gun safe prior to buying an organizer. If your door is only around 9 and 1/2 wide, installing this might be cutting it close; the locking mechanism might even render it a poor fit.

Easy Installation Design

Installing this organizer is unbelievably easy. At the back, you'll find 6 adhesive strips that are attached to the panel through Velcro. Go for the adhesive if you're planning to install the organizer to a metal surface.

The Velcro is best for carpeted surfaces; it will attach without using any adhesive. When attaching using the adhesive tapes, make sure to clean the surface where you plan to attach it Some users even recommend using alcohol when cleaning. Then, just peel the paper covering the strips and stick the organizer on to the safe.

Frequently asked Questions

Q: How do I attach the organizer to the door?
It uses Velcro or adhesive. If yours start to fall off because of too much weight, you can drill holes on the corners of the safe doors and the organizers. Use rivets or small nuts and screws to attach the organizers to the door. If you're worried about how the door will look like, you can just touch it up with paint. Some people just use glue like Gorilla glue on the strips.

Q: Will it fit in an 8-gun cabinet?
It might. Note that this organizer measures 30 by 8 (inches) so a cabinet with a 10-inch would suffice (although that's cutting it a bit close because there needs to be some provision for the locking mechanism). Some users claimed that this organizer does fit an 8-gun cabinet, but to be sure, check the specs of your gun safe before you make a purchase.

Final Verdict
