If you carry every day, you know there are “sensitive” and prohibited places where your concealed carry gun isn’t welcome. Think: the post office, hospitals, government buildings and more. Yes, concealed means concealed, but being spotted with a pistol under your shirt while buying stamps could land you a felony charge and result in the loss of your gun rights.
Forcing law-abiding gun owners to disarm and leave their carry gun in the car while they transact business in these places is inherently dangerous. It raises the chances of a negligent discharge while handling and holstering the gun. It also increases the likelihood of the firearm being stolen while it waits for you in your vehicle. But such is life.
You can stash your mohaska in the center console or lock it in an under-the-seat lockbox, but those are the first places a thief will look when he breaks into your ride. What’s a conscientious gun owner to do?
A company called the Headrest Safe Company has another idea — hide your gun in plain sight in a lockable steel compartment that’s well concealed and built into a replacement passenger side headrest. You can buy a matching regular headrest for the driver side, too, and the average thief will be none the wiser.
Here’s their press release . . .
The Headrest Safe Company, LLC, innovators of the ultimate discreet vehicle safe storage system, is pleased to announce The Headrest Safe™, the standard for anti-theft vehicle safes. The Headrest Safe™ is designed to provide maximum protection for your valuables or firearms. Keep all of your valuables safe when you are in or out of your vehicle. Hide and secure items in plain sight with The Headrest Safe™.
“When it comes to carrying your valuables or firearms in your vehicle, most people think they have to choose between safety and convenience,” said Louis Tuck, COO/CFO, The Headrest Safe Company LLC. “With The Headrest Safe™, you can have the best of both worlds: peace of mind that it’s secure plus easy access.”
You can now take your firearm, cash, medications, and more with you in your vehicle and relax knowing it will stay out of the hands of kids, valets, or intruders.

With three ways to open your safe (thumbprint, key, and code), you will have easy access to your valuables. Make sure your valuables are where you want them, when you need them.
The Headrest Safe™ is completely covered in 1/2-inch foam rubber and the safe itself is made of 18-gauge steel with a 16-gauge steel door. The lock is also made of steel. Once installed, The Headrest Safe™ locks in place so only you can remove it. The fabric coverings that are used look and feel like real leather. Feel free to contact The Headrest Safe Company, and get a swatch sample sent to you. There is also a 100% satisfaction guarantee; your money back if not fully satisfied.
With its universal design, the Headrest Safe™ will fit in virtually all vehicles with a 2-prong post headrest pattern and can easily be installed by yourself. With the quick access biometric lock reader and keypad, you will have rapid access to whatever you choose to have securely stored away. You will never have to worry about taking your valuables with you again.
The Headrest Safe™ was designed to be on the passenger side, so the driver has direct access to the safe from the driver’s seat. However, duty officers may choose to have it on the driver’s side to store and have quick access when entering and exiting the vehicle in situations where they need to store their sidearm, such as court appearances, etc. The Headrest Safe™ also offers a matching driver side companion headrest to match identically to The Headrest Safe™.
