That would involve having pictures in my house though...
You'd really need to set it into the wall to be effective.
And not have kids around!
that is tight but i think crooks look for stuff like that now says
Agreed. If it were just hung on the wall as shown it just wouldn't look right.
If anyone considers buying this, I'd be happy to come over with my sawzall and make sure the frame goes in the wall
It must be at least three inches thick.....unlike any picture I have ever seen on a wall. Not a bad concept but it wouldn't fool me, I don't think.
For someone who wanted to recess it into the wall, like a medicine cabinet, there used to be these magnetic locks that needed a "key" passed over them to disengage the magnets. These were sold for night stand drawers, etc., with firearms users in mind. My memory of these is vague, but they must have been electro-magnets of some sort with a battery operated key.
Replacing the magnets on this unit with the "keyed" magnets would help with security and with kids, I would think. Or you could build something similar yourself and lock the firearm inside the unit with cable or whatever.
It would be awesome if there was an area of the wall you could slide your finger across, and the frame popped open to expose your socom II.
I like the idea ... you could post pictures of guns on the front ... 
On a more serious note, yes, install it 'in' the wall and a solonoid lock (car door popper???) is a good idea .... JMO
They also have these:
I have one of each and call them my "Glock Clocks." I use them instead of carrying around the house. When I leave home the guns go into the safe, also when any children are coming to visit.
There is a kind of cabinet latch called a "push-latch" that holds the door tightly if pulled on. To open the cabinet door you first PUSH on it, it clicks off the latch, and the door opens. These were designed originally for motor homes and trailers so that cabinets would not swing open by centrifugal force of the vehicle. Any good hardware store could order them for you. I once had a whole kitchen full of them. It was fun to discover guests trying to search the cabinets without success! Nobody ever thought of pushing in order to pull......................elsullo
Wouldn't be too hard to recess it into the wall if you did it vertical. then you could lag it into a stud.
I like the idea but have to agree you would want to set it in the wall, vertical it would fit between the studs. If your kids are looking behind the wall hangings in your home they either need more attention or more outdoor activities!
Here's where you can get that:
On their website, go to "Galleries" and look at Gallery #5, or go to "Videos" and look at Animation #7.
Very cool stuff.
