Gun Safe Recalled Over Lock Failure
For further info go to Mr. Locksmith.
A gun safe has been recalled because of a malfunction that allows it to be opened without a key or combination. The recall is for the Stack-On Sentinel model safe made by Alpha Guardian.
According to the Consumer Product and Safety Commission, a bolt malfunction can cause the safe to open without the use of a key combination. That lock failure allows access to any firearms stored inside, posing a safety hazard.
The black steel safe has the name “Sentinel” on it. The style number FSS18-64-MB-E-S can be found on the shipping packaging.
A gun safe sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods stores nationwide in November and December 2018 is being recalled due to an issue with the safe’s locking mechanism, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says.
Alpha Guardian has received one report of the safe opening without the use of a key or combination, which would mean someone could access the guns stored inside without authorization, the CPSC said.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that Alpha Guardian has announced a recall on its Stack-On Gun Safes due to a possible bolt malfunction which could result in failure to lock and possible injury and said consumers should immediately stop using the safe and contact Alpha Guardian for information on receiving a replacement safe or a full refund.
The mishap causes the safe to open without a key or combination.
The style number is FSS18-64-MB-E-S and can be found on the shipping packaging.
The safes were sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods stores nationwide from November 2018 through December 2018 for about $700.
Consumers are asked to stop using the safes immediately and contact Alpha Guardian at 833-255-9827, at [email protected] or online for a full refund or replacement
