First Look: SnapSafe LockBox

posted on January 26, 2015

Hunters who carry a handgun for personal protection while in the field or keep one at camp need to have a secure way of storing the sidearm when traveling and during any other time the firearm is not on their person. The new LockBox from SnapSafe offers such security in a portable, economical package. Here's the scoop.

1. The LockBox exterior is made of 18-gauge steel, which is more than 1.25mm thick.
While certainly not as hefty as the steel used in SnapSafe's full-size, upright safes, it offers a practical balance of protection and weight. The large model, which measures 9.5x6.5x1.75 inches, weighs little more than 3 pounds—a good thing if your hunt requires travel by air.

2. The interior hinge and keyed lock design make the LockBox pry-resistant.
Each LockBox comes with two keys, plus a length of steel cable with a 1,500-pound test rating. Use the cable to secure the LockBox to a stationary object at camp, a vehicle seat or even the internal frame of a piece of luggage. The LockBox meets TSA guidelines for traveling with firearms.

3. Foam lines the inside of both the lid and the bottom.
The interior padding cushions your handgun against rough roads, skies and baggage handlers.

4. The best part: The large LockBox has an MSRP of just $24.95.
Anyone who can afford a box of ammo for his handgun can make room in his budget for a LockBox, especially considering the peace of mind secure storage offers. Two other sizes are also available: XL, which measures 10x7x2 inches and has an MSRP of $29.95, and XXL, 11.5x8.5x2.5 inches for $34.95. SnapSafe offers discounts when buying two or three like-keyed LockBoxes.
