10 Best Gun Safe Accessories

There comes a point where a simple locked case won’t do it anymore. You can’t hide from the need to get a gun safe forever. Gun safes are pretty significant investments and often become a piece of permanent and completely stationary furniture in your home. I can’t exactly help you with purchasing your safe, but I can help you accessorize your safe. Today, we’ll look at some of the best gun safe accessories that help you keep your safe organized, protect your guns and gear, and even improve your storage capabilities.

A Door Organizer

There are lots of options out there for door organizers. The first step is finding one that fits your safe’s door. A door organizer allows you to store anything from magazines to cleaning gear and even guns. These door organizers vary widely, but some are just large pockets capable of holding pistols and gear, and others come equipped with MOLLE-style webbing that allows you to attach what you want where you want it.

A Door Organizer can make it easy to effectively store handguns and increase the capacity of your safe. These organizers are also great for storing loaded mags or any expensive weapon accessories, such as lights, optics, or replacement parts, that might need to be locked up and out of sight.

Snap Safe Rechargeable Gun Safe Dehumidifier

Humidity is a gun safe’s natural enemy. It builds up slowly and eventually leaves your guns looking like you actually lost them in a boating accident. Unless you have a healthy stock of Remoil, then I’d suggest getting a Snap Safe Rechargeable Gun Safe Dehumidier. They come in both medium and large. You need to know the cubic feet of your safe, and if you aren’t sure, just go large.

These compact humidifiers suck the humidity out of the air and leave your guns protected from its grasp! These humidifiers use moisture-control crystals to naturally absorb ambient humidity without batteries or an external power source. When the crystals are all used up, you simply remove them from the safe, plug them into any standard outlet, and the crystals are dried out automatically. The crystals change color, so it’s easy to know when to recharge the humidifiers. It’s a cheap and awesome way to protect your firearms.

Hornady Wireless Digital Hygrometer

Speaking of humidity, how would you ever know if humidity is an issue? A hygrometer measures the moisture in the air and allows you to monitor the humidity levels in your gun safe. Hornady’s Hygrometer is built for gun safes and offers a wireless option. You plant the display into the safe and the monitor on the outside.

Preventing humidity is important, and monitoring it is just as important.

At a glance, the Hornady Hygrometer gives you the minimum and maximum humidity for the day, the current humidity, and the temperature. You can mount the Hygrometer portions with magnets, brackets, or screws; whichever works for your needs and your safe. It’s another cheap gun-safe accessory that will help you protect your costly investments.

Snap Safe 20 or 30 LED Light Strip

I went way too long not knowing that purpose-built gun-safe lights actually exist. My gun safes are locked in a closet, which doesn’t have a light. I used to use a flashlight to fish my guns out. If I didn’t, I was blind and likely to make one hit another, which always left great gouges in the guns. The Snap Safe 20 LED light strips changed my life. They also have a large 30 LED light strip if you need that much power.

These battery-powered LED lights do not require cords. A magnetic strip makes attaching the lights easy, and a bracket acts as a backup. They have an auto mode with a motion sensor that fires the light up when the gun safe is opened, which is absolutely brilliant. I love these things.

Foam Long Gun Rack

Most safes come with some form of long gun rack. They are mostly okay, but I almost always ditch them in favor of foam inserts. Foam inserts are soft and protect the guns from getting beat up a bit too much. Those stiff plastic racks also create a flexibility issue. Not all guns are the same size.

A Foam gun rack seems silly, but it can protect your gun.

Some inexpensive foam gun racks are the way to go. They are soft and protective, and most can be cut as short or as long as you need them to be. They flex to fit all manner of guns and are typically a better and more affordable choice than rigid options.

Mag Storage Solutions AR-15 Dispenser

This one is more fun than anything. It can be attached to the inside or outside of your safe. It’s a Pez dispenser that allows you to stack up to 17 magazines vertically. You can attach it to a gun safe itself with magnets or to a wall near the safe using screws. It is a little chunky, so outside of the safe makes the most sense to me.

It’s super easy to use and a great way to organize all the AR-15 magazines in your life. The Mag Storage Solutions AR-15 mag dispenser is an affordable organizational tool that also has its own charm and cool appeal.

Snap Safe Hooks

Tiny magnetic hooks don’t seem like they are that handy. What the heck am I going to do with these things? Hear me out. These magnetic hooks are handier than you imagine. The Snap Safe Hooks are great inside or outside of the safe. I use these things to hold slings and my hearing protection on a Snap Safe hook.

A few of these cheap hooks go a long way and make it easy to organize your non-gun range gear and accessories. They are easy to attach and detach and can be arranged in all sorts of different ways. These Snap Safe hooks can be your best friends if you have the right imagination.

Snap Safe Magnetic Gun Mount

One way to expand your gun safe’s storage capabilities is to add the Snap Safe magnetic Gun Mount. This magnet is great inside safes. Attach it in spots to fill the dead space, and you can store most modern handguns without any issue. They cling to it, and it gives you a hair of extra space in your safe.

Beyond handguns, you can mount all manner of metal goods for safe storage. The Magnetic mount can be used inside and outside of the safe and gives you a great way to make the most out of very limited safe space.

Hornady Universal Handgun Hangers

Another way to make the most of what’s often dead space is a set of Hornady Universal Handgun Hangers. These bad boys attach to the shelving inside your gun safe and allow you to hang guns right below the shelf. The area between the top of your long guns and the bottom of your shelf is often dead space. This cuts some of that dead space and turns it into usable space.

A set of four of these simple hooks is a bargain bin way to hold a few extra handguns. They are PVC-coated to protect your bore and can hold anything from a .22 and up. For next to nothing, they are a great gun-safe accessory.

All Those Gun Stickers and Patches

If you’re anything like me, I’ll bet you get tons of stickers and patches. Gun guys and gals love that stuff, and companies know it. A free sticker is basically the norm. And if you support gun rights organizations, you will likely get stickers and patches. What exactly can you do with them? If you put them on your car, they’re likely to make you a target.

But your gun safe is a great place to slap those cool gun-related stickers you’ve collected over the years. They can plaster the inside or outside, and you finally have a sticker wall with something that actually has to do with guns. It’s a fun way to decorate and do something with those piles of SIG and PSA stickers.

Lock It Down

You gotta have a gun safe, and if you have one, you might as well deck it out. The right accessories can make it more efficient at storage and protection, and at the end of the day, isn’t that what it’s for?
