The 1420M Short Concealment Mirror is a home defense staging solution that features a classically designed locking cover which conceals a hidden compartment. The secret storage space is hidden behind your choice of cover: mirror, chalk board, dry erase board, or custom canvas. The covert storage cavity is 14″W x 20″H x 3.5″D and is recessed between 16″ on center studs*.
To open, simply disengage the hidden lock with the supplied key and slide the cover to the side. The slides provide smooth opening and closing. Supplied retention magnets make accessing and organizing your hardware even more convenient.
The 1420M Short Concealment Mirror is handmade in our shop in Virginia with poplar and furniture grade birch plywood. The inserts are made from US sourced ABS plastic and are formed in our shop as well. The mirror has a shatter resistant coating and is backed with plywood, giving you two layers of security. The mirror is encased in a fully hardwood frame.
To personalize your 1420M Short Concealment Mirror, choose from our full line of optional accessory add-ons, such as LED lights, coat hangers, or accessory shelves. Our standard Velcro loop compartment backing protects your finishes and allows you to apply patches, storage pouches, or any other hook side Velcro backed product directly to your insert.
