Default Can I hang stuff on my safe door?

Not sure if anyone will know the answer but here goes. Can I drill into the inside of my safe door and hang stuff on it? It's covered in a fabric so I don't know what it's made of. If I knock on it it feels like thin sheet metal maybe???

It's a very large and expensive safe by Cannon so I don't want to damage it.

Thanks.

There are lots of door organizing options for you ...
Cannon offers some of their own as well

I dont own any, but, I believe they clip/hang onto that cover you are wanting to drill.

Edit: Options like these are out there for you - and many others

It's probably a composite backing. I'd personally use some heavy duty velcro.

I had a safe with a compressed paper type board that I backed up with a sheet of galvanized sheet metal. I had another one that used sheetrock as the base. On that one I used anchors to mount things to.

Remember, when you mount stuff on the door to watch out for shelves and other guns when you close it. Some safes have the inner panel of the door go all the way to the edge of the shelves.

You can always take it off to see. It is probably held on with 8 or 10 sheet metal screws.

Are you looking to hang firearms on the door or other accessories? If you're interested in hanging handguns, I would recommend velcro handgun holsters. This could at least free up some space on your shelves.

This is exactly what I am looking for. I just looked and my safe has slots in the top and bottom of the door that I'm sure are for something like this to hang on. Thanks a lot. It's $69 shipped Amazon Prime.

Thanks. I will shop around. I kind of wanted something I can hang AR's on, so I'll look around. It's just really nice to know that I can hang something on the door.

Even those safes that do not have holes or slots can be made to work. Mine didn't so I just cut 4 slots with a dremel and attached the door organizer to it...works like a charm!

I wouldn't try to attach anything to the fabric covering on the door panel. Any significant weight will separate the covering from the panel.

I have a felt liner for my safe door and it covers the entire inside, pretty cool, well, it is not felt, but I found for a very good price some packs of velcro gun holsters that also have a main setup that you can buy from sportsmansguide but I ended up JUST trying the velcro holster refill packs and now I have 12 guns hanging on my door and it cost like, maybe around $35 for all of them and I have a few left over. I also found that if I wanted to I could go to walmart and pick up some liquid stitch or whatever it is called and velcro and attach more velcro onto the holsters for heavier guns. Total investment on my side was around $40 or less I believe. The price has increased a lil bit since I bought mine but here they are, I just bought the EXTRAS and not the kit since I already had a material inside.

I figure that I can liquid stitch velcro onto whatever other cloth binder or folder and hang them inside if I ever wanted to. Good luck.

Check the backing to see if the fabric is covering up sheet rock or if there is a metal skin under it.

Amsec just came out with a universal door orginizer that should fit any door on the market. They haven't gotten it to the public yet that i have seen. Im waiting on our distributor to get me one for "testing" as he so called it with the mfg.
