Small Arms: Secure Weapons Rack with the Right Locks


When it comes to securing valuables, there are many locks to choose from. Just make sure you’re using the right ones to lock up the weapons racks in your unit’s arms room.  

To prevent potential problems, use the authorized locks listed in the graphic below to secure your weapons racks. Never use a lock set where one key fits multiple locks. Also note that Class 5 GSA-approved weapons storage containers, NSN 7110-01-476-2954, can be used to store arms as well.
