Lockdown’s In-Plain-Sight Shelf: Decorating with a Purpose

Recently, in need of a fresh new outlook on life, I redecorated my home and made it my sanctuary. Like many other people, I want it to be a place of comfort and solace where I feel safe and at peace. It all began when I saw the paint color Harbor Mist … doesn’t that sound relaxing? Then came some new décor, furniture and even, bedding. Finally, in search of somewhere to store a home defense firearm, I found Lockdown’s In-Plain-Sight Shelf. It’s a perfect piece to help with the safe and secure storage within a close distance of me being in that area of the house. It fit my new decor and offered exactly what I needed.

You have things worth protecting. Connecting the Lockdown Puck™ with the Logic App allows you full control of your puck no matter where you are.

In-Plain-Sight Shelf

Available in white and dark walnut, Lockdown’s In-Plain-Sight Shelf offers a place to store valuables or other items for easy, quick access. With the use of a magnet, placed at just the right spot, a secret latch opens a hidden compartment beneath the shelf to display its contents.

I am not one to measure accurately and hang items on a wall level or centered. So, I sought the help of my sons to hang the In-Plain-Sight Shelf. The instructions that came in the box do not contain very much information. However, when we checked on Lockdown’s website, we found their installation video very helpful. 

After the boys finished hanging the shelf, we brought out the pegs to create a holding area for my pistol. With the gun unloaded, we moved it and the pegs around to find a configuration that allowed for quick access.

Just to see how it worked, we also put the Lockdown Puck in its mounting location on the left side of the compartment. For those concerned about others accessing their In-Plain-Sight Shelf, Lockdown suggests to Puck your shelf (I just had to include that.)
