Alpha Guardian is recalling about 1,250 Stack-On Sentinel gun safes because a bolt malfunction can cause the safe to open without the use of a key or combination, allowing access to any firearms stored inside, posing an injury hazard.

It was sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods stores nationwide from November 2018 through December 2018 for about $700.

This recall involves the Stack-On Sentinel model safe. The black steel safe is used to store firearms and valuables. It measures 40 inches by 25 inches by 55 inches. It has three shelves and can store approximately ten firearms.

The style number FSS18-64-MB-E-S can be found on the shipping packaging. The “Sentinel” name appears on the front of the safe.

Alpha Guardian has received one report of the safe opening, resulting in no injuries.
