Hidden Compartment Furniture Options

Hidden Compartment Furniture Options

Gun owners know how important it is to keep firearms safely secured in the home. Oftentimes, securing firearms means buying a large gun safe, but gun safes are obvious targets for determined thieves and can be a challenge to access quickly. Hidden compartment furniture offers another option.

The benefit of hidden compartment furniture is that firearms can be safely concealed in an unassuming location that no thief would ever think to examine closely. Since the concealment offers a measure of safety, firearms hidden in secret compartments don't have to be locked away and can be easily accessed by a homeowner in the event of an emergency.

Given these benefits, several companies are now offering hidden compartment furniture that is easy to install and provides safe and quickly accessible storage solutions. Here are three of them.

Tactical Walls

Tactical Walls Founder Tim Matter faced a problem in his home. Like many gun owners, he had too many guns and not enough storage space. Plus, he wanted to store his firearms out of sight while still maintaining quick access to them.

The answer he came up with led to the development of Tactical Walls, which specializes in building hidden compartment furniture. One of the most popular designs from Tactical Walls has been the company's concealment shelves, which come in rifle and pistol lengths.

However, the company has some other innovative designs for firearms owners looking to conceal their defensive guns. One such design is the 1420 RFID Bundle.

the 1420 RFID Bundle is a recessed compartment that fits between standard wall studs. Simply cut a hole in your wall between the studs and mount the 1420 compartment. The compartment can be covered with a number of different options.




The standard option is a shatter-resistant mirror with a plywood backing to prevent breakage. The company also offers options for a white board, chalk board and canvas prints of stock photos or customer-submitted designs.

The 1420 is also available with the company's updated RFID access option. To access the locked compartment, simply swipe the RFID card across the hidden lock. The cabinet will then unlock, allowing quick and easy access to a stored firearm.

The 1420 RFID Bundle retails at a suggested price of $500. In addition to the RFID tag, models with magnetic locks are also available.

Secret Compartment Furniture

Secret Compartment Furniture offers handmade furniture options that are built in Ohio by Amish craftsmen to custom specifications. The guiding philosophy of the company is that all of its furniture options are heirloom-quality and will last for generations.

The hidden compartment furniture offered by the company is offered either as a stock product or as a customizable platform for the end user's particular tastes. Each piece of furniture is built one at a time, so there is room for customization at every level of the manufacturing process.

One particular piece of hidden compartment furniture offered by the company is its End Table. The End Table offers a solid resting surface and three fully usable drawers, just like any normal end table.

To access the hidden compartment, the top of the table slides forward to reveal a hidden nook behind the drawers. Inside the nook, there is a tray that pulls out and reveals three shelves for storing handguns, ammunition, jewelry or money.

In addition, there is another secret compartment behind the bottom drawer. To access it, the top of the table must slide fully forward and the top two drawers must be pulled out. Then, pulling out the bottom drawer will reveal the secret compartment through the top of the table.

The End Table from Secret Compartment Furniture retails for $999. There is a wide variety of customizable furniture options available on the company's website.

Covert Cabinets

Covert Cabinets aims to give gun owners hidden compartment furniture for their firearms while still providing an easily accessible tool in case of an emergency. To that end, the company offers a full line of gun storage shelves that unlock using a magnetic key.

The shelves are built from quality hardwoods and are completely made in the United States. To access the hidden firearm, simply place the two magnetic keys over each corresponding lock. Once the keys are in place, push on the shelf bottom to unlock the compartment. Two pneumatic struts will lower the hinging lid, revealing an easily accessible firearm.

Covert Cabinets also offers non-lockable shelves for the budget-minded consumer. The free-floating shelf is mounted to the wall, and the outside shell is mounted on rollers. Simply pull the shelf away from the wall and the hidden compartment remains mounted, revealing a compartment for a firearm.

The magnet-locked shelves start at a suggested retail price of $240, while the lock-free roller models sell for $99.
