Things for consideration before fixing your new
gun cabinet in your chosen location:
1) Is the area you are fixing your cabinet flat?
2) Is there a skirting board?
3) Do you have your fixings and are they the correct oneís?
4) Is the access ok, i.e. can you open the door to get your guns out.
Make sure the fixing area is as flat as
possible, if you have a skirting board and wish
to make the difference up, a piece of wood
behind the cabinet can make up the difference, (
please bear in mind that you may need to get
some different fittings) from your local DIY
store, as the oneís issued may be too short.
If you are not sure and require help, please
donít hesitate to give us a call, or even call
your local firearms officer, who will advise the
best methods to use against your chosen wall or
Once you know you have chosen the right location
and fittings to suit here are the next steps you
should follow as a guide.
1. Place the cabinet against the wall in the
location you have chosen, open the door and mark
it with a pen through the drill holes.
2. Move the gun cabinet away, you should have
four drill holes marked out
3. Pick the correct drill size and start
drilling the holes you have marked out ( be
careful not to drill to deep)
4. Place the fixing in the holes you have
drilled out, make sure itís a tight fit, so that
the bolt does not spin
5. Place the cabinet back into place and make
sure the holes line up and that you have drilled
in the correct place.
6. Feed the bolts back onto the fixings in the
wall through the cabinet and make sure you have
all the bolts lined up
7. Start tightening them up till you have them
all finger tight and happy.
8. Get an appropriate socket or spanner to fully
tighten up the fixings in place.
9. Check the cabinet is secure, after doing so
check the door operations and that you have full
access of the cabinet.
