The Stack-On Warehouse, a large manufacturing and distributing center, is located in Illinois. The Stack-On PS-5-B drawer safe is one of many in the wide variety of safes that Stack-on offers.

Dimensions and Capacity

Stack on ps-5-b reviewThis tiny drawer safe is advertised with dimensions of 14.2 x 12.2 x 5.9 inches. It is designed to fit neatly into most desk or cabinet drawers, and can hold pistols, along with several small valuables or personal belongings. This safe would be perfect for someone wanting to store firearms in their bedside table or chest of drawers. It is also a handy drawer safe for storing valuables while at work. Instead of worrying about your things while away from your desk, you can simply store them in the safe. This safe could also be used in a kitchen with small children around for storing sharp knives or other safety hazards.

Biometric Gun Safe Technology

This safe features top of the line fingerprint technology, with the ability to remember up to 32 unique fingerprints.  With just a simple swipe of your finger your safe opens immediately, which is faster than typing in a code. It’s also 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 Mounting

Stack on ps-5-bThe solid steel safe is equipped with a gas lift door that releases the two steel, live-action bolts. This gas lift door also holds the hinges in place while it is open, so gravity doesn’t slam the door on your hand while you reach in. It comes with a pry-resistant door with both hinges concealed. This added safety feature is only a bonus for this great safe.

The safe does require batteries, which are included with the initial purchase. Aside from fingerprint technology, the size of the safe makes it very versatile. The safe comes with 4 pre-drilled holes and fastening hardware so that it can be easily mounted on a wall, cabinets, or floor. However, if you are leaving this safe in a drawer, definitely bolt it down to deter theft.
