You lock your firearms up for safety at home but securing them on the go when you can’t carry is just as important. People buy guns to help protect themselves, but when they don’t protect them from being stolen, they’re putting themselves and their communities in danger. In fact, at least 180 U.S. cities have reported increases in gun theft from cars, making vehicle theft the largest source of stolen guns. All it takes is a few moments for a criminal to break a window and easily take an unsecured handgun from a vehicle.

At Console Vault®, we understand the importance of in-vehicle firearm safety. That is why many of our customers are gun owners who want a secure place for temporary vehicle gun storage when they can’t carry. Our vehicle gun safes are a responsible solution for securing and concealing handguns and are designed to fit discreetly in the center console or other compartments of your car, truck, or SUV.

Whether you’re searching for a truck gun safe, or a hidden gun safe for your SUV, our in-vehicle safe serves as an all-purpose locking storage unit or gun safe.

“Two of my students who had a Console Vault in-vehicle safe had someone enter their vehicles. There were scratch marks on the lid where the thieves tried to pry it open but could not get in. They had broken a window to get in the car and stole quite a few things that weren’t in the safe.”

– David S. Jenkins; Founder, Rochester Personal Defense, LLC, NRA Training Consoler/ Instructor, USCCA Training Consoler/ Instructor

Should you experience a break-in someday, your valuables will remain discreetly secured with an added layer of protection within our safes.
