What Makes Us Different
Our product features rapid-access opening technology to protect the lives of law enforcement officers and communities. AWS Rapid Access Weapon Lockers open electronically, with a push of a button on a wireless remote and no combinations to remember.
Our high-quality products keep weapons out of sight – even with the trunk lid or back hatch open, which helps protect the community by keeping weapons issued to law enforcement out of the hands of criminals.
All of our Rapid Access Weapon Lockers and accessories come with installation kits designed around factory mounting points to minimize installation time, costs, and headaches.
AWS lockers and accessories were created with a simple design and standard dimensions for ease of transfer between vehicle platforms, which saves a department money by not requiring an additional purchase when equipment is switched between vehicles.
Read below some of the customer-favorite features of Estes AWS Weapon Lockers and Accessories.
“I have been installing both Estes AWS and competitor cargo barriers in emergency vehicles since 2015 – mostly in the Ford Interceptor Utility and Dodge Durango. I am particularly fond of the AWS cargo barriers due to the ease of installation. You do not have to cut on interior trim or drill and cut on the inner body frame. You also don’t have to cut any weather stripping around the back doors to install. There are literally four bolts and lock washers that screw into four thread certs on the back of the locker. It is very sturdy—preventing any cargo from coming forward into the passengers’ seats in the event of a rear-end collision. The instructions are very straightforward and easy to follow. The company is very helpful on any technical questions as well.”
Randy Rogers, Mooresville Police Department
“As a 37-year veteran of the protective services industry, this is the first mobile gun locker I’ve seen that meets the needs of both security and rapid deployment. The remote opening feature allows the officer to maintain his position of cover while still accessing a patrol rifle or specialty munitions from their vehicle for other responding officers to utilize. Estes AWS has set the bar with their Rapid Access Weapon Lockers by protecting law enforcement through enhanced rapid response while protecting the community from stolen firearms.”
Karl L. de la Guerra, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer at KDI Protective Services of South Carolina & KDI Tactical Operations Training Center
“Every agency we have shown an AWS locker to has either bought a system or is planning to in the near future. Installation is super easy, and the product itself is functional and easy to use. All the lockers are very well built products, and the AWS team provides superior customer service.”
Ronnie Sissney, Vice President at Patriot Safety Supply
“We love how easy AWS lockers are to install! The installation is quick and simple so it is hard to have any problems with them. They are built to withstand almost anything. Lastly, the look on customers’ faces when you press a hidden button and the drawer opens on its own is by far the best part of showing off the lockers”
