It can be hard to find what you want from inside your gun safe if it’s dark in there. Most gun safes have dark interior colors like charcoal gray or faux leather. Lights can make a huge difference when it comes to seeing inside.
Lighting up your gun safe can be relatively inexpensive. For instance, a small lamp with magnetic base and a flexible goose neck can be mounted on top of the safe, then pointed inside. Another cheap option would be a battery operated switch light, for less than $10 (photo on left). The ones we sell stick with either magnets or Velcro-type patches. These work great on smaller safes too.
Better light systems are more expensive but still reasonably priced. LED lights in long strips can brighten the whole inside, not just part of it. Most systems have two long light strips (photo on right), one for either side inside the door. I prefer those that also have a strip across the top, and those that can be mounted with hook & loop patches. Motion sensors or door contact activators are nice because you don’t need to flip a switch to turn on the lights.
Light systems make a great gift for the person that has a gun safe. Lighting up the interior of your gun safe makes it easier to admire your collection or find whatever it is you’re looking for.
