Control Humidity in your Vault with These Lockdown Products

It’s the time of year when the humidity level begins creeping its way up. My first concern is the havoc it wreaks on my hair, since no amount of straightening product tames this wild mane. My second, more important concern, is the costly damage humidity may cause to firearms and other items in my vault. Thankfully, Lockdown offers products to help control and monitor humidity.

Control Humidity in Your Firearms Safe

Here’s a rundown of just some of the products Lockdown offers to help monitor and control the humidity in your vault, cabinet or other storage areas. 

Silica Gel

Prevent condensation, mildew and rust from damaging firearms and other valuables by absorbing moisture from the air inside a vault with Lockdown Silica. When fully saturated, crystals change color. But wait! Don’t throw them out! Simply recharge them in an oven and they’re ready to use again.

Lockdown offers three different size dehumidifiers to control humidity by removing moisture from the air. Choose the one that best fits your needs.

Water glass crystals absorb moisture in the Lockdown Rechargeable Dehumidifier. A window indicates when it’s time to recharge the crystals in the oven.

compact auto dehumidifier to Control Humidity

Compact Auto Dehumidifier 

Through an ultra-efficient thermo-electric process, the Compact Auto Dehumidifier removes moisture from the air. Water then drains into a 600-ml holding tank or it can be directed with a hose into a drain. An automatic digital control regulates the humidity by turning the unit off and on to set specifications.

MSRP: $89.99

Using the same process as its compact size, the Automatic Dehumidifier offers identical humidity control, but with a 1.5L tank capacity.

MSRP: $109.99

Dehumidifier Rod

Lockdown’s Dehumidifier Rod works by slightly increasing and maintaining the air temperature inside the firearm safe, thus eliminating humidity, mildew and condensation.

Here’s a word you don’t hear every day: hygrometer. This instrument is used to measure the humidity, or amount of water vapor in the air.

With this handy dandy gadget, you can monitor humidity at a glance with three different choices in Lockdown Hygrometers.



This most basic Hygrometer has an easy to read dial.

MSRP: $10.99

Lockdown Digital hygrometer

Digital Hygrometer

The Digital Hygrometer not only shows current conditions, but also records historical max. and min. values.

Lockdown wireless digital hygrometer

Wireless Digital Hygrometer

The Wireless Digital Hygrometer is the same product as the Digital Hygrometer but with a remote sensor that keeps an eye on the inside of a vault.

MSRP: $34.99

As you can see, Lockdown offers different tools in various price ranges for controlling and monitoring temperature and humidity in your gun vault or room. There’s no better way to protect your firearms and other valuables, and truth be told, if you were to check out most people’s safes, you’d probably find something from LockDown in there. Now if they could just make something for my hair!
