Stack-On Comparison Table
The company was established in 1972 according to its website and is based in Wauconda, Illinois. It originally manufactured a wide range of products to satisfy demands from tradesman down to hobbyists. Nowadays it focuses on storage and security solutions for the home and garage to give you products that allow you to store tools, firearms and personal information easily, safely and securely.
It has one of the largest ranges of personal home safes, just behind GunVault in terms of the number, however not all the models have a biometric equivalent.
How does it compare as a manufacturer of safes
Based on reviews of customers Stack-On is clearly a solution for those that have tight budgets and want very cost effective solutions. There are some reports of slow customer service but overall the company does a good job in supporting its products. The biometric readers are not reported as reliable as those from GunVault or Barska so may need more time to program sufficiently to get good success rates but it is definitely possible to get great performance from these safes.
Expectations of a Stack-on safe
You should expect to not get a top of the range and state-of-the-art safe but what you will get is a reasonable solution to storing firearms. It may not be as reliable as products from other manufacturers but you can save a lot of money with their products.
The key locking mechanism is known to not be as good quality as that from Barska or Viking Security, at least in our experience. But it has definitely improved in terms of security from where the company first started.
If there is one thing you should expect from a Stack-On product it is that they are always improving as their technology gets more updated.
Unique features of Stack-On Products
The widest selection of biometric carry-cases is their biggest advantage over other manufacturers, no other manufacturer offers as many solutions to storing your personal items on the go, and they make great solutions for in car and vehicle storage due to their small but appropriate sizes.
