Our Score

If you're keeping your guns and rifles unprotected and unsecured in a nightstand drawer or cabinet somewhere, you know that isn't the safest option and you get a big "shame on you" from us. Look no further, if you like having it close to you, how about safely stored under your bed?

The Monster Vault (aka the "Vault") is our top-rated under bed safe and the best solution to storing firearms in a bedroom. The Vault is ideal if you want something that's within a few feet away but virtually impossible for anyone else to access other than those who have the clearance.

Enough with the small talk, let's get into the nitty-gritty. 

General Overview of the Monster Vault

  • Voted Best Under Bed Gun Safe by Safeist
  • Slide Out Drawer
  • Can Fit In The Trunk
  • Made in the USA
  • Thick Steel Walls
  • 7-Year Warranty
  • No Padded Interior
  • On The Pricier Side

Measuring the Safety of the Vault

First things first, the safety of the Monster Vault. You should know that it's HIGHLY UNLIKELY  that any intruder, without the help of other intruders will be able to carry it out of your front door, or any door really. It totals 140 pounds (empty), the top and bottom of the Vault are made of 11 gauge steel while the sides are made out of 7 gauge.

The electronic lock allows you to choose from three to eight digit long combinations as well as 2 letters. We highly recommend making it a habit to open your lock at least 2 times a day for the first week of ownership to remember your combination. That's the general rule of thumb when we purchase any new safe.

Coming already pre-drilled, you can use the holes to anchor the box to the floor or the frame of your bed, if your frame is sturdy enough of course.

One of our favorite safety features is the mute option that will allow you to access the inside of the vault without making a single sound.

Fireproof/Waterproof Capabilities

Because the Vault is so thick, we really think it'll withstand better than the rest of the under-bed gun safes that made our list. But like most safes, it's fully fire-resistant.

It's certainly not water-resistant so don't go putting the Vault by the pool. All jokes aside, a little water won't hurt if you wipe it fast enough, but the electronic components will definitely get fried if you find yourself deep inside of water. Moist environments won't corrode or rust out the vault, but just to be sure its internals are ok, buy a gun safe dehumidifier to be safe!

Storage Capabilities

The interior is 26 x 44.75 x 5 inches in total and has a maximum diagonal length of 51.5’’. This gives you a total of 3 cubic feet to store your guns in. Use the dimensions to figure out how many of your guns you would be able to store inside. It’s definitely a roomy vault so you can fit a nice collection of firearms in there as long as you keep in mind the maximum weight capacity of 100 lbs.

Price Point

The safe offers a reliable lock, is made of sturdy and thick steel, and is quite heavy, so it provides a very high level of protection. Its weight is one of its best assets, even more so if you choose to bolt it down to the floor.

It's a pretty price to pay, but a small amount if you take into consideration your personal belongings that will be stored. For that reason and that reason alone, we say you will definitely get your money's worth with the Monster Vault. It even comes backed by a 7 (YES, SEVEN) year warranty.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Ownership

Much like every product, this one has its perks and setbacks. The thing our team loved the most is the ease of access. This isn’t your typical under-bed safe that’s tricky at best. It’s a drawer that pulls out smoothly and effortlessly even when it’s packed to its maximum capacity.

One thing we think would be better is if the interior had padded sides. Though this isn’t a significant problem, it’s still important to keep in mind that all the sides are bare metal so you might want to look into getting some kind of interior lining.

Conclusion and Final Thoughts on the Monster Vault

Overall, it’s a super secure vault that has lots of room for different guns and items you find valuable. Its best feature is definitely the level of security it offers as well as its durability and ease of use. Pretty much everything about it is perfect. Let's go ahead and mention how heavy it is again because that's also how perfect it is. All whilst still being able to fit either in the trunk of your SUV or under your bed.

The Safeist team found this reliable vault to be a good option for someone who has an extensive collection and wants to keep it at hand. If you want size and versatility, the Monster Vault Under-Bed Safe might be the best damn gun safe for you as it delivers exactly that and some more.
