The idea of the SnapSafe closet vault was formed by SnapSafe founder Edward J. McGunn, a third generation safe builder and avid gun collector. He recognized the fact that gun safes are heavy and hard to install in some cases. He came up with the perfect solution; SnapSafe, the build it yourself gun safe. This modular gun safe is ideal for individual assembly in tight spaces. Even though the safe is assembled by you, the security is still industry leading. SnapSafe features a fire rating and offers superior burglar protection. If you have a tight space or small closet, the SnapSafe closet gun safe assembled by you is the right choice.
