The Stack-On Warehouse, a large manufacturing and distributing center, is located in Illinois. The Stack-On PS 20-B extra large safe is equipped with biometric fingerprint technology.

Dimensions and Capacity

Stack On PS-20-B Biometric SafeThe safe is advertized as extra large, with dimensions of 13-7/8 x 12-1/4 x 19-3/4 inches. Though it is advertised as extra large, it certainly should not be mistaken for a rifle safe. Complete with two removable shelves, the safe has the capacity for storing pistols, ammunition, and other personal belongings. This safe has removable shelves for that cumbersome item that just doesn’t fit properly.

Biometric Fingerprint Technology

Hands down, the best feature of this safe is that it has the ability to remember up to 32 unique fingerprints for ease of access.

With just a simple swipe of your finger your safe opens immediately.  It’s nice that the safe allows so many fingerprints to be stored, so that you can record your own fingerprints at different angles to improve accuracy.

Construction and Safety

Stack On PS-20-B

The solid steel safe is sealed with a black epoxy finish paint, which gives it a nice finish. It comes with a pry-resistant door with both hinges concealed. This added safety feature is only a bonus for this great safe, because the lock also includes two steel bolts which ensure that the door is safely secured.

The safe does require batteries, which are included with the initial purchase. The safe is large, but still small and light enough that I could use it to store valuables while traveling, or move it around the house as I see fit. There are pre-drilled holes in the safe so that it can be easily mounted on a wall, cabinets, or floor. It is recommended that when storing firearms the safe should be bolted to the floor.
