Questions & Answers for Stack-On Stack-On GCWB-10-5-DS Sentinel 10 Gun Security Cabinet

Question

will this be able to retain lower humidity?

I live in a humid climate and need something to store my rifles in that will seal well enough to maintain a low humidity so my guns stop rusting in 2 months. Will this locker seal shut well enough to maintain a lower humidity or does it have holes in the corners and a door without a seal (rubber o-ring or foam)?

answer 1
I also live in a very humid area of the country and noticed all the holes in various areas of the cabinet. I used JB Weld to seal up the corners of the cabinet, duct tape (both on the outside and inside for various round holes not used), and weather stripping from Home Depot for the door. Weather stripping was 7/32" x 1/4". It can't be very thick or the door won't close correctly. I also included a rechargeable dehumidifier. I haven't checked humidity in cabinet but will measure over next few weeks to see if it is acceptable.

Not unless you use a liquid latex sealant for all surfaces, and plugging the screw holes for wall mounting and or floor mounting. Like you I was worried about humidity, so I sealed it all with a latex sealant(LATEX based KILLZIT Paint) plugged the holes with caulk first, and threw in a few desiccant cans, it works, after letting the pain dry for a week and using a blow-dryer to ensure dryness. It will get the job done no problems.

No seal. Just a regular locking metal cabinet. I live in East Tennessee and have a heat pump. So far no problem. We clean ours often and our guns do not rust like that. But no its not an expensively made gun safe with a seal.

There are some holes present and the door is not sealed. I have not had any problems with condensation in the unit I have hade for 4 years. I doo however maintain a constant 78 Degree temperature in the house. The humidity in the house ranges from 20 % to 60%. I would recomend either a rechargeable absorbant or a golden rod if you are unable to maintan a fairly constant temperature in the house.

I received my cabinet about a week ago so I'll answer my own question (no offense to the others who answered). There are holes in the corners and numerous holes in the sides for the shelf and for securing it to the wall. If you dont use these holes cover them with tape. The corner holes can be sealed pretty easily with spray rubber car undercoat. I found "Permatite Dortite Natural Open Cell Rubber Gasketing Sponge, 50' Length x 1/4" Width x 1/8" Height, Black" on amazon and I might try that to go around the door but it might be too thick to close the door then. But its worth a shot.

No seal. However, foam stripping could easily be added and the pre-drilled holes, for securing to wall, could be sealed.
With the addition of a couple moisture packs, inside, it would probably work.

I would call a locksmith or bore your lock out and replace it. However make sure you have the right key. The first pistol/ammo safe we bought the keys would not work, but we could not even open the safe so we were unable to get in the safe. I exchanged it out and the replacement had keys that worked. Has your lock or key been stripped? I am sure a locksmith can get it open but I don't know what they charge. Depending on the value of your items inside I'd try that route.

Its a distinct possibility someone has stuck something into key hole, such as tooth pick etc. There is a specific tool, looks like a miniature saw blade that can reach into lock and pull out object. Its also possible that door was bent putting pressure on releasing bars. If lock is somehow not functioning right or key is slightly not machined correctly, try wiggleing the key as slightly use pressure and turning all at same time.

Minor assembly is required. You only need a phillips head screwdriver to attach the ammo shelf by the four nuts and screws provided. The rifle separators are stick-on so you just peal the backing off the foam and stick them to the inside of the cabinet. Took me roughly 15 minutes from getting it out of the box to having it set up.
