CAR MOUNT

Vehicle Placement

We recommend installing the vehicle mount on the outside rail of the passenger seat. You can adjust to suit your personal preference, but we’ve found this position to offer quick access by simply reaching behind the passenger’s set while in the driver’s position.

As a safety precaution, we recommend consulting with a certified automotive technician before installation.

Step 1: How to Install Main Bracket?

Depending on your vehicle’s design, the vehicle mount offers (3) different position to secure the main bracket to your seat rail. Select your preferred setup, and install the main bracket. Instructions for each setup below.

A) Install Rail (simplest)

B) Existing Rail Hardware

C) Existing Rail Hardware (alt.)

TIP! View your vehicle’s configuration and select which placement works best. You might need to bring the passenger seat forward to expose the rail and make your workspace roomier.

A) Installing Inside the Rail

1. Slide rail adapter into the open end of the rail.

2. Attach the main bracket by threading alan head screw through the main bracket’s center hole.

TIP! (3) Alan head screws are provided, select the one that fits best.

3. Firmly tighten the screw into the adapter plate. The friction between the adapter plate and your car’s seat rail holds the main bracket in place.

B) Using Existing Hardware

1. Remove outer frame rail bolt from your vehicle. This is beneath removable plastic covers on some late model vehicles.

2. Position the adapter bracket in place and reinstall the removed frame rail bolt. Tighten firmly.

3. Attach the main bracket to the adapter bracket using hardware provided. Tighten firmly.

TIP! Two holes sets are available in the adapter bracket to help you position the main bracket as close as possible to your seat back. This lessens how much safe protrudes.

4. Complete.

C) Using Existing Hardware (alt.)

1. Remove inner rail frame bolt on your vehicle.

2. Position the adapter bracket in rail and reinstall the removed frame rail bolt. Tighten firmly.

3. Attach the main bracket to the adapter bracket using hardware provided. Tighten firmly.

TIP! Two hole sets are available in the adapter bracket to help you position the main bracket as close as possible to your seat back. This lessens how much safe protrudes.

4. Complete.

Step 2: Attach Mounting Plate

Now that the main bracket is securely installed in your vehicle, the next step is attaching your mounting plate to the main bracket. The original mounting plate included with your safe will mount directly to the newly installed bracket, but additional mounting plates can be purchased separately.

Match (2) of the lower holes from the mounting plate with the main bracket. You can choose to offset the plate and select the (2) holes that suits your application. Install with the remaining hardware provided, only the outside hole in the main bracket will need the nut.

TIP! Before tightening the nut all the way the arced slot allows some adjustment of angle to suit your preference.

TIP! Additional mounting plates are available through our website to provide you with multiple mounting positions and helpful if the safe is transported often.

Step 3: Attach Safe to Mounting Plate

Now that the mounting plate is securely installed on the main bracket, the next step is racking your safe on the mounting plate just as you normally would. Open the safe and match the locking tabs on the plate with the corresponding slots on the safe.

TIP! Slide passenger seat back in place as close to the safe as possible.
