The OnionSafe: A Concealed Handgun Lockbox and a Safe In A Night Stand

The OnionSafe, made by a new company of the same name, is hardwood nightstand that incorporates a handgun lockbox concealed inside a side panel and a larger safe incorporated into the lower drawer.

From the press release …

The onionSafe makes it easy and safe to keep a handgun in the home, ready to defend against intruders.  Disguised as an attractive nightstand, the OnionSafe keeps your firearm secure, but within your bedside reach. A quick touch releases a hidden compartment, revealing a handgun lock box with a digital keypad. Although there are 3 layers of security for the handgun lock box, access can be made in less than 10 seconds.

The OnionSafe also cleverly addresses the needs for better home security of important documents and jewelry. Hidden compartments contain a jewelry box and a tamper resistant home safe.  Both enclosures maintain a 3-layer level of access security, keeping those things that are important to you yours.

The handgun lock box and home safe are made of steel.  The OnionSafe enclosure is made in the US of American hardwoods with old world craftsmanship and specialty hardware designs that date back to the eighteenth century.

The safes of being sold online for $1495. The company told me that because each nightstand is custom made, delivery takes two to four weeks. It I had the money, I know that I would buy two of them for my bedroom.

    I really like the whiskey in there. Never know when you might need a shot of liquid courage during a break-in.

      I just found a demo video should anyone want to see how it works:

      Yep… not the smartest choice for a sample photo, though…

        The video is even better, they’ve thrown a bottle of Advil in there too.

    • who cares?

      Pity it’s not even good whiskey.

      • who cares?

        P.S. You still would have to bolt the damn thing to the floor.

    But is it worth $1,500?

    • noob

      it is if it comes with a little infinitely spinning top. We need to go deeper….. BWWAAAAAAANNNNGGGGG.

      • Hold on, if we squint harder we might get an Oscar.

    So, who makes the safe, and is it worth the extra cost to have it not match teh rest of my bedroom furniture?

  • Squidpuppy

    The side panel should slide down, not hinge out. Most people put this kind of furniture close up against something, e.g., a bed or a chair. How about an internal pocket in a mattress? Hangs down inside the frame of the mattress, big enough for a handgun. Could have sheets with an access flap. Maybe a DIY kit.

    Why spend $1500 bucks on that silly nightstand when you could get a shotgun, various “tactical” accessories, plus a gun locker to mount to the wall in your closet, with money left over for shells.

    If you’ve got time to get a handgun out of that concealed punch-button lockbox, then you have time to step over to the closet and get your shotgun.

    I think y’all know which one is the preferred choice.

    • Not considering the other options the amount of work that goes into building one of these would be extensive. A lot of man hours I imagine with considerable hand fitting. Is it worth $1500? That’s up to the potential buyer.

  • When do you think Ikea will offer us a trendy, low cost alternative to the onion safe?
