The Headrest Safe Company, LLC is releasing its first product, the discreet Headrest Safe, which is meant to protect firearms and other valuables from being stolen out of vehicles. The Headrest Safe replaces the passenger seat’s original headrest so that the driver has easier access from the inside.

At its core, the Headrest Safe is provides an extremely discreet hidden locking compartment that is made from 18-gauge steel and is fully wrapped around with ½ inch foam rubber and upholstered to match the materials found on car seats. The Headrest Safe is meant to replace a vehicle’s standard headrest in order to literally hide things in plain view but also keep them under lock and key. The unit locks in place in the seat and it can only be removed by the owner. The Headrest Safe is designed to fit into all vehicles that use a double prong post headrest pattern and is easily installed. It has a quick access features like a biometric lock or a keypad and the door to the safe compartment is made from 16-gauge steel.
