Think your gun safe is full? Think again!
Condense and organize long guns into a smaller space and access them easier than ever with Rifle Rods. Rifle Rods are a patented hook and loop based system that individually stabilizes each long gun in the upright position (leaning, as required in standard gun racks, wastes valuable storage space).
This system allows you to stack your long guns as many as four rows deep, freeing up as much as 50% additional space in your safe. The included Shelf Liner works in gun safes, closets, cabinets, or anywhere there is a shelf. The Rifle Rods measure 16” and will fit calibers as small as .22. Injection molded plastic Rifle Rods will not damage your barrel, and they work equally well for scoped rifles, shotguns or modern sporting rifles. Don't buy another safe, retrofit your gun safe today!

What if I have some guns that are too short for the Rifle Rods?

Most importantly, make sure the shelf above the guns is placed as low as possible.
For varying lengths of guns, arrange guns of similar heights together. If you have one or two extra long guns, try running them through a cut-out in the shelf to the ceiling (place loop fabric on ceiling to use Rifle Rods).
If the Rifle Rod is not halfway down the barrel of the gun, the rod will bow. As a solution, place an object underneath the gun to make up for the difference in height. Suggested objects are: ammo cans, books or boxes. The best solution is to build a custom shelf to the size desired - this will give extra storage underneath the guns!
Rifle Rods seem loose in my shotguns. Why aren't they available in different calibers?
Rifle Rods are made at one standard size for 22 caliber rifles and any caliber size larger (excluding smaller than 22 caliber - we have a 17 Caliber Rifle Rod for that). The best feature of Rifle Rods is their versatility. Everyone's gun collection is different so Gun Storage Solutions has designed products as close to one-size-fits-all as possible . Yes, this means that Rifle Rods will have more wiggle room in a 50 gauge shotgun, but this does not hinder the function of the product.
Gravity is our friend! Keeping the weight of the gun distributed on the floor. The Rifle Rod only stabilizes the gun in the upright position. A tighter fit in the barrel may make you feel more comfortable, but you will find over time that Rifle Rods made for specific calibers is an unnecessary feature and would only add to the price of our American made product.
What if I have a metal or plastic shelf?
Some safe manufacturers have switched from a plywood shelf to a metal or plastic shelf. This does create a challenge for the proper installation of Rifle Rods. At this point we still recommend a wooden shelf. Either attach a 3/4" plywood to the bottom of the metal/plastic shelf or replace it all together - Click here for instructions. The Shelf Liner included in Rifle Rods Kits is the absolute best product that is on the market. It is an industrial grade loop fabric that does not fray over time, which creates a safe environment for storing guns using Rifle Rods.
An adhesive backed loop fabric is not a good long term solution. We have found that in a humid environment or over a period of time, adhesive will wear out and peel away from its mounted surface. GSS does not want to sell a product that does not provide longevity for your storage solution. We realize your gun collection is important to you and we want to provide the highest quality product. For more information please read our blog post on this subject.
To install, simply remove the gun rack in your safe, then fit and attach the included loop-fabric Shelf Liner directly above your long guns. Slide a Rifle Rod down the barrel of each gun and pull it up, attaching its hook coin top to the loop fabric Shelf Liner, and you’re done!
All safes and gun collections are different so see the FAQs tab for some installation tips.
