Stack-On PC-900 Discontinued
Stack-On claims this device “Meets TSA Airline Guidelines.” According to TSA Guidelines for Transporting Firearms and Ammunition, firearms may be transported in “a locked hard sided container.” The guidelines do not say how resistant to unauthorized access the container must be, aside from stating, “Locked cases that can be easily opened will not be accepted.” Since the TSA does not endorse products, responsibility is left to manufacturers to decide whether their products are TSA compliant. This safe was examined November 24, 2015.
Bulldog Vaults BD1060
This handgun safe is the second in Bulldog Vaults’ line of standard digital vaults. It has the same locking mechanism and the same defectively designed keypad as the BD 1050. The only difference between this safe and the smaller one is storage capacity. This safe was examined October 3, 2016. Note: This safe also has an updated keypad.
Stack-On PS-514-12 Discontinued
This is one of the most common safe designs manufactured in China for export. The basic solenoid-locked mechanism inside is used in thousands of Chinese-made safes. Even the keypad fitting is installed on products made by multiple manufacturers, including Bolice Machinery & Equipment Suzhou Co., Ltd., Mexgrand (Suzhou) Metal Products Factory, Wujiang Granden Electronic Mechanical Co., Ltd., Yangzhou Super Industry Co., Ltd., and others. Put simply, this Stack-On safe is as generic as a product can possibly be. This safe was examined September 17, 2015.
This is an updated version of an earlier model, the PS-514. Components of the solenoid-locked mechanism inside the PS-1514 have been redesigned to prevent “bouncing” the safe open. The redesign also includes shielding for the solenoid, making the new safe much more resistant to tampering should an attacker try to insert wires through the door. This safe was examined December 18, 2016.
