Weapon Storage Racks – Nine Key Reasons


1. Simple Weapon Storage

With one moving part (the cradle) and two total parts, SecureIt’s CradleGrid Weapon Storage System is remarkably simple.SecureIt’s CradleGrid system has just one moving part and is as simple as it gets. The patented cradle fits onto a grid and properly supports any weapon at the barrel, rail or magwell. The base interlocks and is tiered to support the buttstock of any weapon. That’s simple!

2. Smallest Footprint

SecureIt high-density weapon storage racks allow for the storage of a larger number of weapons and gear in the same room. Increase room capacity or make room for effective gear storage.

The volume of serialized and high value gear going into armories is increasing. A smaller footprint for weapon storage is critical to proved proper storage and organization for all materials now stored in armories.

3. Non-proprietary

SecureIt’s CradleGrid Weapons Storage System is the only fully non-proprietary system available.Not only is SecureIt’s CradleGrid system elegant in its simplicity, but it’s also non-proprietary. While the cradle and base are patented, the grid system itself will accept any number of accessories available at your local hardware or home store. No other military weapon storage system is commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS)! One cradle will store every weapon in your armory.

4. Sustainable

Because the weapon storage racks with CradleGrid system adjusts to any and all weapons, there is no fear that it will become obsolete and no need to buy new brackets for new weapons.

The goal of a weapon storage system should be to meet current needs while also allowing flexibility to change with the times. Because the SecureIt CradleGrid system is universally adaptable, it will stand the test of time.

Other weapon storage systems that rely on brackets require the purchase of new brackets anytime you add new weapons. A catalog of brackets is a sure sign of ongoing and costly complexity.

All other systems require you to purchase different brackets for each type of weapon.

Understanding Modern Weapon Storage.

After 15 years of designing and building military armories all over the world, I thought it was time to put my thoughts down and create a series of educational pieces about modern weapon storage.


In the last few years, several office and filing storage manufacturers have entered the weapon storage rack market. These companies do not appear to have any real experience in this field. The storage systems they are representing or manufacturing simply do not work well in military armories…. continue to Weapon Storage 101

Replacing old complex weapon racks

If your armory is a mess and simple tasks take all day

bad weapon weapon rackWe have just completed the Travis AFB Project. This armory had become dysfunctional as a result of the complex weapon storage cabinets and non-US locking system. The unit had purchased Canadian weapon racks (Dasco) to outfit their armory. They were sold on the modular back panel and a wide variety of brackets to store all their guns.

The problems started almost immediately. The Abloy Lock in each cabinet is designed for a Canadian standard. It really doesn’t work well in a US military armory. All the different brackets were driving them nuts. learn more: Weapon Racks: Replace Complex Storage
