I chose the Hornady box, but modified it to use a 5/16" hardened chain bolted to the truck. It will help.


I didn't have the cable, so that's what I did. This is how I rigged it up in my Mustang. I did the same in my truck.

I got a Buck knife sitting beside the safe so I always have a knife handy. I normally always have one in my pocket, but when I'm going to work, I can't. (Correctional officer)

So how did you hook that bracket the chain goes through to the safe itself? And what did you make the bracket out of? It looks like it started life as something else.

Hi jmf552 - My apology for taking so long. Here is how I attached the chain to my vehicle gun "safe". The other end is attached to the seat frame bolt. It can be undone, but takes forever to unthread since it's difficult to reach and is a "locking" type bolt, as in difficult to remove. (5/16" u-bolt in holes drilled in the side of the "safe")

How did you modify it to use the chain? Got pics?
