Who makes the Titan gun safe?

Titan Security is the company that designed the Titan gun safe. The company has been around for over 27 years and it’s a small family-owned business. They offer a small selection of gun safes, but they put many years of design, unique patents and ingenuity that you won’t find elsewhere.

What really interested me about this company was that they really care about the reliability and security of their products. They want their customers to be 100% satisfied with the product they’re purchasing.

What’s the capacity of the Titan gun safe?

This gun safe can fit one pistol and contains a nice holster on the inside to slip your firearm into. Make sure to measure your handgun before you buy this to ensure that it fits in the gun safe.

The maximum size of your handgun can be 10 inches long by 6.5 inches high by 2.25 inches wide. Any larger than that and it won’t be able to fit in the safe.

Where is the Titan gun safe made?

This gun safe is made right here in the U.S.A.

California laws

This safe passed the California Department of Justice requirements for being a certified firearm safety device. By California law, you are able to use this safe in your car and store a firearm in it with ammo in a separate container.

These laws don’t just apply to California. Make sure to check out your own state’s gun laws to ensure you’re obeying them when traveling with or storing firearms.

Where can it be mounted?

This safe can be mounted in 8 different directions. You can mount it upside down, vertically, horizontally, almost any way you’d like.

It was specially designed to be mounted in a car or bed. It normally can fit under your car seat, or next to the center console. If you have a motorized seat, it may not fit below your seat.

There are multiple ways to mount this safe to your bed. You could mount it below your bed horizontally for easy access, or mount it on the headboard.

What are the dimensions of the door?

The dimensions of the door are 8 inches by 2.75 inches. If you’re planning on storing it between your seat and the console, make sure to measure ahead of time to ensure there’s enough space. It could get snug otherwise. I know for myself, the seat belt buckle gets in the way and I wouldn’t have enough space between my seat and the center console for it.

Does it require batteries?

No, this safe uses a mechanical Simplex locking device. It never runs out of batteries because it’s not electronic. This greatly reduces stress for many people who want a gun safe. Especially if they don’t plan on accessing it very often. If you’re planning on storing your gun and only needing it in emergency situations, you’ll know that this Titan gun safe won’t let you down because it won’t be ‘out of battery juice’ when you need it most.

Personally, I think this is one of the biggest benefits to this gun safe. Its reliability. The Simplex mechanical lock will never have you wondering if your battery died or if the electronics failed to register your combination or read your fingerprint. It takes a huge weight off your shoulders.

Can I change the combination?

Yes, you are able to customize the combination. Titan security explains that there aren’t any numbers on the buttons that you press, it’s more of a sequence to remember. Commonly known as a simplex lock gun safe. So you can press multiple buttons at the same time when programming your combination for your gun safe.

There are over 2,000 combinations to choose from, so you can feel safe knowing that your gun will be protected inside without a child able to get in.

The buttons are raised so that they’re easy to push in the dark. I would hope that there are raised distinctions on every other button so a user can know where they are immediately when placing their fingers on the buttons.

If not, you may want to put something on the buttons and practice unlocking the gun safe once you program your own custom combination. It’s important to be able to open your gun safe within seconds, especially without looking at it.

Note: There is no backup key to this safe, so make sure you write down your combination. If you can’t get in, there’s not much you can do outside of taking it to a locksmith.

What’s the warranty?

Titan Security offers a one year manufacturer’s warranty and a lifetime warranty on workmanship and the materials of the safe.

The warranty doesn’t cover you if you’ve forgotten your combination or if the safe was broken into. This differs from other gun safes that do typically offer replacements if the product is damaged by a robber. Make sure you do not warp the safe in any way as it can void the warranty that they provide.

Is it fireproof?

No, this safe is not UL rated nor does it claim to have any fire protection. This safe’s main purpose is to keep your weapon stored safely from burglars and children and also allow for quick easy access.

For fire protection for a single pistol, you’ll most likely need to look at home safes that offer a fire rating, although keep in mind that this may affect the speed at which you can access the contents of the safe.

Who should buy this?

This safe is perfect for someone who wants to store a single pistol in a safe that doesn’t require batteries. It’s great for mounting to pieces of furniture like under your bed or nightstand. It’s also great for anyone who wants to carry a gun in the car in California.

Who should not buy this?

A person who may want to store more than one pistol, or who doesn’t want to push in a combination should look elsewhere for a gun safe. Perhaps they’d be better suited with a biometric gun safe.

Where can I buy it?

The great news is that Amazon offers this gun safe with two-day free shipping. The Titan pistol vault has awesome reviews from people who have bought this product. I think this is a great alternative to typical electronic pistol safes. Head on over to Amazon here to check it out!

No batteries is a real benefit here. I wouldn’t access the safe very often, and would easily forget to check the batteries. Thanks for the great review Lauren

This is perfect and just what I was looking for. I’ve only got the one pistol so I’ve been researching small sized safes to keep this safely tucked away. Love the fact that I don’t need to worry about batteries. Great review btw. Thanks!

Very interesting and amazing article. Thank you for the information on this gun safe. I would be interested in getting one of these for my husband to keep his pistol in. To have it in a safe place and yet be able to have access to it when you need it. Good product.

I love that this is a mechanical lock and the lifetime warranty is also a huge plus. Getting a gun safe is certainly part of my shopping list in preparing for purchasing a pistol. The titan vault looks like a great candidate for mounting under the bed or in the car. Thanks for the write up!
