Looking for a safe door organizer that fits

I have a Sentry 14 gun safe that has worked pretty well for me. The problem is that it doesn't have a good way to store handguns. Does anyone recommend a hanging door organizer that will hold 4-5 handguns, maybe some magazines, accessories, etc?

The problem is the fit, since it's not a real big door. I would love if anyone has some thoughts on one that will fit well and serve it's purpose. I see all kinds of stuff for sale, but I would be guessing if I ordered one at this point.

By the way, the door's inside dimensions are 15" wide and 53" tall. It is lined with carpet which I have no problem modifying if necessary.


Thanks in advance for the input and opinions.

I put 1/4" peg board on the inside of my safe door. I hang handguns from the triggerguard on pegboard hooks. I dipped the hooks in a liquid rubber insulator for tools I got at Ace Hardware. This stops metal to metal contact between triggerguard and hook.

thats a cool idea, did you use spacers on the pegboard to hold it off from the door? Pics are always good if possible. I have been looking for a door organizer for sometime now, just didn't want to spend over 100 bucks for a factory organizer.

Another way to do it is carpet on the door, then you get holsters with Velcro and attach to the door as needed.

Yeah, I used 3 small fender washers behind each of the 6 mounting screws (3 down each side) to space the pegboard away from the inside of the door, probably a little less than 1/4". The hooks are about 1" and they fit both 1/4" and 1/8" pegboard. Actually I used 1/8" pegboard in my other safe for my semi autos. The liquid rubber is important because it prevents any electrolysis and keeps the hooks from scratching the trigger guards. The space in front of the inside of the door is mostley dead space anyway, so the handguns don't take up any shelf space. Works great for me.
