Gun safes are a must have item for gun owners in today's society. The safes are designed to securely house firearms and prevent children and unwanted people from using them.
Sadly, one safe failed to protect people. Now, Alpha Guardian is recalling their safes for a serious reason.
"A bolt malfunction can cause the safe to open without the use of a key or combination, allowing access to any firearms stored inside, posing an injury hazard," the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission reported.
The name of the product is the Stack-On Sentinel Gun Safe. The company is offering to refund customers or replace the safe. They say that over 1,200 units are impacted by the recall.
"This recall involves the Stack-On Sentinel model safe. The black steel safe is used to store firearms and valuables. It measures 40 inches by 25 inches by 55 inches. It has three shelves and can store approximately ten firearms. The style number FSS18-64-MB-E-S can be found on the shipping packaging. The 'Sentinel' name appears on the front of the safe," the report details.
Customers are urged to contact Alpha Guardian toll-free at 833-255-9827 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or email at DCSG@AlphaGuardian.com and online at www.Alpha Guardian.com for more information.
