Re: Gun Safe Dehumidifier

When I got my safe back in 1996 ,there was a product called a (Golden Rod) its a just a heater about 10 or 12 " long that is mounted under the bottom shelf,most safes I believe have a small access hole somewhere to run an electric cord.If not a hole will have to be drilled to access electric.

Not sure of the brand but I bought mine at Lowes where I bought my safe. I see Tractor Supply also sells them.

Re: Gun Safe Dehumidifier

If you don't have a hole for the cord or don't want to use the electricity, they sell dehumidifier "cans" with silica gel in them that are re-conditionable.

Re: Gun Safe Dehumidifier

I use a golden rod, and the dehumidifier cans with silica gel. Little of both.

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.

Re: Gun Safe Dehumidifier

Get the electric rod. Made by a few companies and readily available. Rejuvenating the silica crystals gets old real fast. I suggest since warm air rises place the rod on the bottom of the safe.
