Alpha Guardian of Henderson, Nev., is recalling about 1,250 Stack-On Sentinel gun safes.
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.
The firm has received one report of the safe opening, resulting in no injuries.
This recall involves the black steel Stack-On Sentinel model safe used to store firearms and valuables. It measures 40 inches by 25 inches by 55 inches with three shelves that 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.
The safes, manufactured in Mexico, were sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods stores nationwide from November 2018, through December 2018, for about $700.

Consumers should immediately stop using the safe and contact Alpha Guardian for instructions on receiving a free replacement safe or a full refund.
