    I chose this vault for the in-wall mounting, quick access, mechanical lock, and flexible options to maximize the storage. It has done all of the above. I had to rearrange some studs in my wall, but was able to build a spot for it with no issues. I built it to the dimensions the instructions called for before receiving the vault so I could throw it in as soon as it got here, and the installation was a breeze. Fit and finish is great. There were a couple issues with the first unit that was delivered to me, but Bruce and his team were immediately responsive and rectified it – I can’t say enough about the customer service.

    Just installed the Tactical Closet Vault and it looks great. Installation took a minute but the final install looks professional and doesn’t take up much space at all. Setting a new combination was easy and the construction of the vault feels solid. I picked up two of the shelves which fit really snug into the vault, but because of the depth they just don’t hold a lot.

    This is a high quality in-wall locker. Installation was easy and all required hardware is included. The locking mechanism is a mechanical 5 button combo pad that allows you to set single or multiple button presses as part of the combination for a wide variety of combinations. The safe is shipped very securely with 3″ foam around the edges. Nice job V-Line!

    I received my Tactical Closet Vault back in September, but I had to wait until February to install it. I agree with other reviews that the shipping box and packing were top notch, and mine arrived in perfect shape. The door and lock both operate beautifully; simple and intuitive, but very sturdy. Installation was a breeze, and I appreciated the included bonuses (gun-cleaning cloth, corrosion inhibitor squares, etc.). I found V-Line because it’s one of the only companies that offers an in-wall safe option, but I’m very happy with the quality and the fact that it’s “Made in the USA”!

    I just received my Tactical Closet Vault. It is everything I was hoping for. The quality, the ease of installation, the security and the quick access are amazing! This is my second product from V-Line. I’ve had the Quick Vault for close to 15 years and can’t say enough great things about it as well. The customer service at V-Line is amazing. Both Bruce and Michele were extremely helpful with my product selection and purchase.

    This Vault (Tactical Closet 51653-S) is amazing. Very sturdy and well built. Packaging is almost over the top. It arrived in perfect order. I am very impressed with the Simplex locking system.

    Well done V-Line!

  8. Jeremy

    This in-wall safe is the perfect fit for our home. Installed in our walk-in closet, between the studs, in less than 30 minutes. There is a good YouTube video that goes over the easy DIY installation process.

    The safe arrived well-packaged and in mint condition. Looks great!!

  9. Nicolas Arlotta (verified owner)

    This safe was very easy to install, even though my studs weren’t 16 inches on center, I had no issue adding studs to my wall and everything worked out perfectly. If I did have studs 16 inches on center, it would have only taken me maybe an hour to gather my tool, cut, mount and clean up. I also purchased the extra kit to mount my rifle and purchased the handgun hangers. Everything was top quality! I really love the fact that this safe takes up practically no space.

    Installation is easy. The dimensions are just right for standard wall construction. Access into the vault makes it very convenient to quickly address any “need” that may arise. I prefer the Simplex lock system which eliminates the common biometric or lost key issues. Low tech is sometimes the best tech. This vault is SOLID!

    The shipping with a solid 2″ of foam around the entire product makes it darn near impossible to damage.

    I am impressed with the build quality of the V-Line tactical closet vault. I love the Simplex lock, no batteries required! This safe is sturdy, mounts solid and is a quick and easy to open with customizable combinations with easy to follow instructions. I was very impressed by how responsive the team was once the order was completed. They quickly sent a shipping tracking code and once the order was confirmed and shipped. Excellent company, great customer service and quality product made in the USA!

    I purchased this item instead of a huge gun-safe. This is an awesome alternative to huge gun safes for a reason. If you move, this will be much easier to move than a large gun safe. This gun safe is easier to conceal at a house (put a long mirror on reverse hinges over top of it), then people will not even know you have it. I wish V-Line would make a long mirror cover for this item for that exact purpose – I know many people who wish to securely hide their rifles. The lock works great every single time, buttons are very clicky when pushing them down. I fit 2 gauge shot guns, an AK, and an AR-15 in mine. I have mine in the basement and plan on buying a second one in the future for my bedroom closet.

    Dear V-line, if you make an optional add-on mirror with hidden hinges, I can sell a dozen of these safes almost immediately.

    This product is a 5/5
