Top Small Vehicle Gun Safe


A vehicle gun safe offers a secure storage solution within a vehicle for hiding valuables and firearms. In SUVs and trucks, these safes are often integrated into the center console and labeled a center console gun safe or console safe. Because console safes are not designed for smaller cars, such as sedans and sports cars, small vehicle gun safes offer an alternative storage solution. 

Benefits of a Vehicle Gun Safe

  • Prevent unauthorized access to your firearms and valuables, particularly by small children.
  • Reduces the risk of a loose firearm discharging in the event of a collision.
  • Can offer relatively quick access to your firearm in the event it’s needed.

Many of these alternative vehicle gun safes can be fastened to the vehicle's floor beneath a seat or attached to a seat using a robust steel security cable.
