“If a client requests an installation in a non-standard vehicle, I’ll find a solution that fits their needs. AWS weapon lockers are sized perfectly to make that happen; and it’s not as simple as cutting a wire to break in. It’s more secure. More thought was put into the design. Put simply, it’s a superior product and a better value than the competition.”
“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.”
“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.”
“I’m a recent customer of Estes AWS and their Large SUV Storage Box. Being an evidence technician, I am issued a large amount of equipment to go along with standard issued items. Estes’ Large SUV Storage Box provides me with the necessary space to store all of my equipment in a safe and secure location inside my vehicle. This box also allows for personalization in the form of organization allowing each individual to set their box up to their liking, which makes keeping equipment inside a vehicle easier.
I am especially impressed with the quality of materials used. Estes’ box has a textured powder coat finish on it which is very durable and very easy to clean. The powder coated finish also provides a very clean and sharp look to the box. The box is also fitted with latches and locks which allow the user to lock and secure the box for any reason necessary. The Auxiliary Drawer mounted underneath the box has a durable lid, which allows for a very convenient work surface to perform any field work that is necessary. The large drawer on the box has had no issues with the amount of weight my equipment adds to it. The drawer is user friendly and very easy to open and close, no matter the weight inside.
The box and its components were installed in my vehicle in several phases. I was highly impressed with the customer service I received from Estes AWS. Each time my vehicle was taken to Estes AWS for upfitting, it was returned in a very clean manner. The AWS team was also very detail oriented, making many new improvements on this prototype box during the installation process. They were also very helpful in answering any questions raised during the process.
I highly recommend Estes AWS to any business or agency looking for vehicle storage boxes. I intend and look forward to being a continued customer of Estes AWS.”
“I have been upfitting emergency vehicles since 2000, and I am also a full time police officer. Therefore, I am also the end user of the equipment I install. I do upfitting for nearly every law enforcement agency in the county in which I work.
During my time as an installer, I have installed prisoner partitions, K9 cages, cargo barriers, and gun vaults of several brands. I have also upfitted several Fire Chief/staff vehicles too throughout the years.
I have been installing AWS Estes gun lockers in the police vehicles in our fleet since 2013 when the first generation of the Ford Interceptor Utility locker came out. I have also installed Estes AWS gun lockers in a Dodge Durango for another agency.
I like the AWS Estes Rapid Access Weapon Lockers because there are not a lot of parts necessary for the installation. The mounting hardware primarily adapts to factory bolts that are visible in lieu of cutting, hacking, and drilling into interior molding or on the body of the vehicle.
I recommend the AWS Estes Rapid Access Weapon Lockers and accessories alike for they are easy to install, and can move to another vehicle fairly quickly. While there are still very good quality products out there, Estes AWS is my favorite.”
“If you really want your weapons to be SECURE, then you will NOT find another solution that offers anything better! Very simple to install. Definitely one of the best solutions on the market!”
“The Estes AWS Rapid Access Weapon Locker is different than other weapon lockers on the market. The construction is much stronger, the price point is better and the width is wide enough to accommodate all of our weapon systems (other than a few sniper rifles).
I believe the weapon locker protects law enforcement officers. Our deputies can carry their shotgun, rifles etc. without having to take these weapons in and out of the vehicle every day. They can now leave these items in the vehicle, knowing that they are more secure then when they are clearly visible in the shot gun rack in the front compartment area.
The Rapid Access Weapon Lockers’ installation is straight forward. Once we got the hang of it, we were able to install six systems every evening with two (two man) teams.”
“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 for both law enforcement and the private gun owner, by protecting law enforcement through enhanced rapid response while protecting the community from stolen firearms.”
“What I like about the Rapid Access Weapon Lockers by Estes AWS is the increased security it provides to police firearms and the ease with which officers can rapidly obtain their firearms in an emergency situation. I recommend this unit to anyone who carries a stored firearm in their vehicle for work in law enforcement.”
“This is the first gun locker I have seen that revolutionizes the storage and safety of weapons.”
