The RedHead 12/24 gun safe is a fire-resistant way to keep your firearms protected. The safe's electronic lock also helps keep guns out of the hands of children or thieves. If the battery in the electronic lock loses its charge, the safe will not be able to open until the battery has been replaced. The battery compartment can be accessed by removing the safe's keypad. After removing the keypad, a new 9-volt battery may be inserted.
