How does it compare as a manufacturer of safes

Based on the reviews written by their 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 to be as reliable as those from GunVault or Barska so may need more time to program and train sufficiently to get good success rates, but it’s definitely possible to get great performance from these safes.
