Prioritize Safety With A Hidden Gun Shelf
As many gun owners strategize on how to keep their families safe and firearms concealed, a number of tactics can easily be utilized. While gun safes are good long-term solutions, hidden gun shelves like Covert Cabinets provide a quality storage solution that can be accessed quickly and efficiently. The system, which needs a magnetic key to be accessed, is disguised as a normal, well-made floating shelf that can be opened to reveal a number of different sized firearms.
Should the worst-case scenario occur and an intruder enters your home, your guns and other valuables will remain accessible yet hidden in plain sight.
Considerations For Choosing The Gun Storage Solution For You
If your family includes curious little ones, obvious displays for your firearms are not ideal. While education is key to ensuring your children understand the responsibility that comes with owning firearms, you cannot always guarantee that their friends understand that guns are not toys to be played with. Additionally, in the event of an emergency, gun safes do not allow you to access your firearms quickly and efficiently in any room of your home.
Concealed gun storage, like a Covert Cabinet system, allows you and your family to have the ready accessibility of a gun rack with the security of a gun safe.The magnetic lock can only be opened with the corresponding key, which can be easily be added to a standard key ring.

Developing Your Home Defense Strategy With Covert Cabinets
When considering your family’s needs during an emergency, the following are important to think through:
1. What are the typical entries an intruder would use to attempt to enter my home?
2. Where is a safe area my family could retreat?
3. How would I access my firearm quickly and efficiently?
While the first two points are different for every family and home, the third one is a no brainer across the board. Hidden gun storage systems provide a quick and easy method to retrieve your guns in an emergency, but provide day-to-day security by keeping firearms hidden from children and other people who do not need access to them.
Covert Cabinets Keeping Firearms While Remaining Safe
Retaining firearms in your home for your personal safety is a right you deserve, but responsibility is key to ensuring those tools do not fall into the wrong hands. Concealed furniture and shelving allows quick access when needed, and covert concealment when you don’t. With a product like Covert Cabinets, you can let your children know of its true use when you feel they’re ready; after immersing them in proper gun etiquette and proper handling.

Preparing Your Home
After you’ve developed your home defense strategy and decided to incorporate a hidden gun shelf like a Covert Cabinet, you should next decide on the best placement in your home for easy access to your firearm. Shelves range in size, allowing you separate units to house handguns, shotguns and rifles. To prepare for an intruder at night, consider placing a cabinet with an easily accessible firearm in your bedroom. Additional units should be placed throughout the home based on other points of entry: on the way to the front door, the back door, and windows that can be easily accessed from the outside.
Preparing Your Family
While the entire family need not always know the contents of your concealment furniture, consider informing a well-educated member of your family, like your spouse or older child who understands gun safety and use. This way, should you need back up, your entire family won’t be surprised by the true contents of the innocent looking shelf hanging on your wall. While developing your self defense plan, give this trusted family member an important – but simple – job that they can easily follow to support you in the event of an emergency.
Having a plan of action is the easiest way to remain calm in an emergency. Practicing that plan speeds up your reaction time, and helps you to anticipate what will happen next. The key to successful home defense with a concealment shelf is just that: the key! When you go to bed, make sure your magnetic key is within arms reach, and can be grabbed quickly and easily if something goes “bump” in the night. Again, ensure that your back-ups know where additional keys can be quickly located should they need access to a shelf, too. During the day, keep keys in easily accessible spots near your shelves. Make sure younger children know that these keys are not toys, and should not be touched under any circumstances. Education is key, and starting young and with simple tasks primes your children to understand the importance of home safety and, more importantly, gun safety.
