[Review] SecureIt Agile 52: Flat-Packed Gun Safe

A good safe is one of the first things that most gun owners buy, or at least should buy.

Safely and securely storing our firearms is critical not only for safety but also to protect our property from criminal hands.

But for a lot of us a 500lb+ safe just isn’t practical. Maybe you rent, maybe you move a lot, but either way – you need something a bit more…Agile.

What It Is

The Agile 52 is a gun safe with the modularity and portability of a cabinet.

Shipped to your door in a large box weighing about 100lbs this is a great option for people that don’t have the space or permanency to install a full-sized safe.

It helps to have a friend on hand, but even solo it is possible to install the Agile 52 in just about any kind of domicile.

Features!

Obviously, the big selling point is the portability of the Agile 52, but that doesn’t do much good if it isn’t secure!

Security

Built of heavy-duty large gauge steel, the walls and floor of the safe are solid and will easily prevent any smash and grab attempt.

The ability to bolt the safe down to the floor will also ensure that any would-be threat can’t just walk off with the safe as a whole unit.

Combined with the mounting hardware being securely placed inside the safe and the full frame, recessed, piano hinge swing door with 3 locking points – a direct attack on the safe would be time-consuming and problematic at best.

Key Pad

Primary method of opening the Agile 52 is a keypad and 6 digit code, we find this to be an acceptable level of security while still maintaining a reasonable amount of convenience.

Running on a standard 9-volt battery the keypad is simple, easy to use, easy to reprogram, and has the added benefit of a muting function in case you want to be rid of the standard beeps and boops. 

If the battery runs out on you – the safe can also be opened via a physical key backup.

CradleGrid System

A good safe is nice, but a great safe also helps you organize! SecureIt uses the CradleGrid System to allow for a plethora of mounting options and customization inside the safe.

SecureIt offers a wide range of options for the CradleGrid system including rifle mounts, pistol mounts, and parts buckets.

Size Matters

Since this is a more portable option than a full-size safe, it also doesn’t have the capacity that a huge safe might have. However, it does give you some room to store more than the average cabinet.

Especially with the CradleGrid.

We can easily fit 3 rifles, a shotgun, 2 AR-15 uppers, several pistols, and a number of scopes and accessories in our Agile 52 – and we’re not even Tetris masters!

Plus, if you need even more room – SecureIt does offer a Quad Model 52 and 40 of their Agile safes so that you can stack them and store even more goodies.

Speaking of size, the dimensions for the Agile 52 are:

  • Height: 52″
  • Width: 20″
  • Depth: 15″
  • Weight: 105 lbs

Assembly

This is where the Agile 52 could see some improvement. While the fact that it comes disassembled and portable is really nice, putting it together is kind of like trying to put together IKEA furniture…only heavier and with aggressive edges. 

The directions are…adequate, but not stellar.

The only video SecureIt offers on assemble is for an older model that while helps to get you in the ballpark, it isn’t great.

In all the project only took about 40 minutes, but it was a frustrating 40 minutes.

Thankfully, if you have a friend on hand to help hold some things – the process is a lot smoother. And the further you get in assembly the quicker and cleaner it becomes due to the safe taking shape and lining each part up.

Conclusion

Is the Agile 52 the answer to your storage problem? 

If you’re short on space or if you plan on moving soon or often, then its a great option over a normal full-sized safe.

The Agile 52 gives you the security that you need right now while giving you a portability option that would otherwise be expensive and difficult with other safes.

    This would be a great safe for $299 or so...but it's not.

    Is there some reason why the actual dimensions, inside - outside - or both, are not mentioned?

    I have a Snap Safe offering some of the portability you discussed here but with more security and some fireproofing. It weighs in around 500 pounds I think with the door being the heaviest part (90 pounds or close). I’m 73, 5’7”, 150 pounds. I assembled the safe by myself but had help sliding the door onto the hinges. Probably could have done the door alone too but already had back surgery once so I got help. Very secure safe, I have around 10 long guns (most with optics) and 5 handguns stored in it. Around $1600 if I remember correctly. Very pleased with the safe; the instructions and videos were great. Good buy.

    Assembly is actually quite easy once you do it the first time. Here is a short description. 1. lay down the bottom (or top, they are interchangeable) with the lip toward the front 2. Stand the back inside the bottom with the grid tabs pointing up 3. finger tighten the middle silver nut at the bottom 4. place one side in (they are interchangeable too) and place a black screw and nut in the middle hole, attaching it to the back 5. repeat for the other side 6. place the "joiner bars" over the joint between the sides and back and finger tighten the silver nut at the base, repeat for the other side 7. place the door inside the front lip of the base 8. finger tighten a black screw and nut in the middle hole to join the door and sides 9. place joiner bars as in step 6 10. place the top over the whole shebang 11. with the door open, place joiner bars for the top as you did in step 6 for the bottom 12. tighten all the screws/nuts 13. program your code (easiest to do with the red reset button inside)

    This is just an extremely expensive gun cabinet that can be opened up as easily as a tin can. You’d be better off buying a bicycle lock and locking your guns to the hanger bar in your closet. At least when you’re robbed you didn’t spend money on a POS safe. This “safe” is probably fire rated .01% better than a bundle of sticks too. GIVE ME LIBERTY SAFE, or GIVE ME DEATH!

      No more than this small safe will hold you could simply hide the whole 3 long guns or some ammo maybe a hand gun.

      My grandson is a very inquisitive kid who gets into everything. This will keep him out. I can't see buying a five thousand dollar safe to protect a couple of insured, replaceable rifles. I can see spending $600 to prevent a tragedy.

        Cheaper bigger gun cabinets after all that’s really all this is. A very small gun cabinet. For 600 you could buy two cheap cabinets. Check academy.

      Zanotti uses wood and carpeting (glued) inside the safe. These are not good for your guns. I do like their pin connections inside.

    I did not see scopes attached to the rifles. Is the cabinet wide enough to hold an AR with a scope?

      These are 15" deep.

    It seems like a good idea if you can't have a full size safe, but it also seems quite expensive for what you get.

    ...looks as secure as a high-school gym locker (not to mention you used the word "safe" on this page more than 30 times, while the company rightfully calls this a "cabinet" and not a "safe.")
