Pull Test Results of Multi-Mags

When shopping for a gun magnet, knowing the product’s magnetic strength is very important.  Will your gun be securely held in place by the magnet?  Will you be able to draw the firearm effectively?  Where/how can the magnet be installed?

Here is the low down on Multi-Mags so you can make an educated shopping decision.

The Multi-Mags are made to attach to a metal surface and are also easily installed onto a wood shelf with a staple gun.  The Multi-Mags attached to a metal shelf will give you greater pull strength than the wood because the metal shelf provides a return path for the magnetism and pushes the strength back towards the other face.   So, based on that, here are the results:

  • One magnet strip (two magnets) attached to 1/2″ thick Cold Rolled Steel (CRS) as the base on one side, like a metal shelf, on one side and 3/16″ thick CRS, like the metal on the slide of a pistol, on the other side: Pulled straight up = 10-12 pounds of pull.
    • Using the same method as above with half of the strip (one magnet): Pulled straight up = 5-6 pounds of pull.
  • One magnet strip (two magnets) attached to 1/2″ thick wood as the base on one side, like a wood shelf, and 3/16″ thick CRS, like the metal on the slide of a pistol, on the other side: Pulled straight up = 6 pounds of pull.
    • Using the same method as above with half of the strip (one magnet): Pulled straight up = 3 pounds of pull.

Please note: Test results are optimized by using the proper thickness and flatness of CRS, pull test equipment,  and so forth.  Many things effect how magnets perform, such as the thickness of the steel.    Therefore, the pull strengths given on this blog post are for reference purposes only and we cannot guarantee that the magnet will perform in the same manner or have the same pull strength in the field.

That’s right, ONE HUNDRED and EIGHTEEN handguns are in this gun safe!  No, they are not stacked in boxes or shoved into corners.  Each firearm is easily accessed with one hand thanks to Handgun Hangers!  The owner has used mostly Over-Under Handgun Hangers throughout the safe – these give easy access storage above and below a shelf.  The bottom, right two shelves are using Original Handgun Hangers – these give space-saving storage below the a shelf.

New National Sales Manager

A few weeks ago we welcomed on an amazing new employee – Jennie Burningham!  Jennie will be our National Sales Manager.  She is very experienced in our industry, having worked at Liberty Safes for 15 years and Champion Safes for the past 2 years.  As a National Account Manager at Liberty Safes, Jennie was already familiar with our products when they were brought onto the Liberty Safe accessory line-up in 2012.  She has been a huge supporter of GSS since she saw how our safe accessories improved the interior of any gun safe.

If you were at the 2015 NRA Annual Convention you would have seen her hit the ground running, having just coming aboard the previous week.  We can’t wait to see what Jennie will bring to Gun Storage Solutions.  She has already done such great work in the short time she has been with us.

Multi-Mags + Handgun Hangers

There is nothing better than realizing a product you’ve made has more uses than you originally made it to have.  Well, we’ve discovered a way to combine the trusty and popular, Handgun Hangers, with our latest and greatest product, Multi-Mags.  With any semi-auto comes magazines…possibly lots of magazines.  Keep your magazines right next to your gun with the pairing of Multi-Mags and Handgun Hangers!

The cool thing about Multi-Mags is that they are super versatile and we keep coming up with more uses for them.  What sets them apart from other gun and magazine magnets is that they are two magnets tethered together by a durable rubber coating.  Fold the magnets over onto each other to create a loop at the top.  In this case we slid the loop over the rod on Handgun Hangers to make the two products work in a new, useful way.  See the pictures below…

    

Original Handgun Hangers paired with Multi-Mags are a great way to keep everything together in one place.  The Multi-Mag folds around the rod of the Handgun Hanger to create a magnet on each side of the Handgun Hanger.  The Handgun Hanger holds the two magazines and the pistol in a space saving manor, underneath a shelf.

Use Multi-Mags in conjunction with other Handgun Hanger styles, like Over-Under Handgun Hangers and Back-Under Handgun Hangers.

We know there are many other uses for Multi-Mags that are yet to be discovered.  Maybe you could devise the next useful trick.

Braveheart’s Gun Safe

If William Wallace from Braveheart was living in the here and now, this would be his gun safe.  Clearly, this safe made a complete transformation in appearance, but also in storage capacity.  He was able to put shelving back into a third of his gun safe, lowered his top shelf, and made guns easier to access by using Rifle Rods.

“I love your gun rods. They’ve given me a ton of space back in my safe. I’d recommend you guys to anyone. While I was reorganizing my safe I took the opportunity to redo the interior.”  -Modern Day Braveheart

Guess How Many Guns

I’ve been wanting to do a challenge like this for a while and I’ve just now received the perfect picture to make it work…  The safe owner had to supply a quality photograph, have A LOT of guns, and be willing to give me an accurate count of said guns.  This gun collector was so great to work with, but he did request more Rifle Rods for his trouble, which I was more than happy to supply to him for his efforts.  Ahhh the life of the retired ;)

SO here it is folks:
