The 1242 Rifle Length Shelf is easy to mount to the wall. Installation is as easy as installing any floating shelf. The medium density polyurethane foam insert which holds all your gear in place is easily customized to accommodate various home defense items. Simply cut the required shapes out of the foam, peel the self-adhesive backing, and attach the foam to the compartment bottom.

The 1242RLS is hand crafted in the United States with real hardwood and US sourced materials whenever possible. The surface mounted shelf  was designed for use with standard 2″ x 4″ stud framing. Each shelf is pre-assembled and supplied with a set of 2 bookend style shelf brackets for added support.

    I purchased this shelf shortly after they were released (so is has the magnet opening devices). In my old house I had used it as an electronics shelf located under my TV pushing the limits (& most likely even exceeding) of the 20lb top load. The shelf has worked exceptionally well for me, and since I have moved become a shelf that holds pictures, knick-knacks, and other keep sakes.

    The magnets to open the shelf I keep hidden behind a picture attached to the bookend uprights. The magnetic placement to open the shelf takes some getting used to. However, I have treated them just like a holster draw, the more I practiced it, the more second nature it has become. So that if I have to get into the shelf in the unfortunate situation of a home invasion, I can with no problem.

    The craftsmanship is exceptional, and for the select few that I revealed what the shelf’s true purpose is they have had nothing but high praises to give. I shelf currently holds my AR-15, one loaded 30 round mag, my 1911, two loaded mags for it, and my flashlight.

    Great Clandestine Staging Option. I have two, one magnet and one RFID. Both set up with an AR and some other items.

    Now I know where Erik Ludwig keeps the magnets to open his shelf! Better hide those again! In all seriousness, great product. Well made and looks like well made furniture also. I recommend it to anyone seeking an alternative way to store their firearms that is discreet and secure.

    Hi Shawn,

    Thanks for taking the time to review the 1242RLS. We at Tactical Walls do everything we can to provide the best possible U.S. made concealment products and try hard to back that up with great customer service. We often refer to our products as “spouse approved gun staging”, and are happy to hear that the workmanship of your 1242 lived up to that moniker.
