5 Things You Didn’t Know About Stopbox

We may get commissions for purchases made through links in this post. Thanks for the support! 👍

The Stopbox is a one of the only quick access quick access pistol boxes on the market today. It is a plastic well built pistol safe that allows you to get to a firearm extremely quickly.

You can read more about the product itself, in my full article here.

Recently, I have been doing a really cool series of articles where I have aske companies to share 5 things you may not know about them!

Dylan at Stopbox was kind enough to share these 5 things!

1. The beginning of a true quick access box

We are a family owned and operated company. Dylan Ervin is the founder and inventor of the StopBox. He went to a local gun store to buy a “quick-access” safe for his nightstand when his first born started to walk in 2013. Dylan worked as a TV producer for a CBS company at the time and saw how often the newsroom reported on stories of people waking up to intruders in their bedroom. It has even happened to one of his siblings. He looked for a product that was going to work in that specific situation. Nothing on the market met the criteria for a quick-access device that could be used in the dark and under stress without relying on electronics or batteries. Dylan has always been fascinated by mechanics and had hoped to be a mechanical engineer and inventor growing up. He started developing the StopBox solely for personal use. But quickly others started requesting ones for themselves and the StopBox was first released to the public in November 2018.

This is how most businesses start! Dylan found a problem and he solved it! It is very cool that working in television lead to him creating almost a whole new style of gun box.

As far as I can tell, there isn’t anything else on the market today that competes directly with the Stopbox.

2. Creating jobs in the USA

StopBox USA is based in Spokane, Washington we are proud to be creating manufacturing jobs right here in America!

There aren’t many plastic items made in the USA anymore, as it is so much cheaper to make outside of the country, however I commend Stopbox USA for keeping their manufacturing in the USA.

This also allows for awesome quality control, and the ability to adapt as the need arises.

3. A no risk purchase 

We have a 30-day money back guarantee and back our products 100% no matter what. Contact us anytime and we’ll take care of you.

This is pretty cool! I know only a couple gun safe companies that offer something like this. Basically they will take it back, no questions asked.

The Stopbox is not your normal pistol box, and I think it is really important to try it out. Because of this 30 day money back guarantee, you can try it out, if you don’t like it then return it!

I personally have one of these, and can attest, for being a plastic unit, it is really well thought out and made.

4. Keeping it close to home

We do our own stunts.

Much like Jackie Chan, Dylan does all of his stunts. He is an active marksman, and lives the firearms life. Because of this, he has created an innovative product.

5. Vision of constant innovation

Our vision for the company is to continue to develop and manufacture innovative products that bring tremendous value to your everyday life.

This is a really cool vision to have for a company. Innovation is what changes people’s lives, and makes them easier and better. 

I have personally used the Stopbox, and would be really excited to see what else Dylan is able to come up with in the future. This is definitely a company to keep an eye on.


Stopbox USA has created a great product, that I think will help many people that are looking for something to keep their firearms safe on the go.

It is also awesome to hear these 5 things, and getting to know these companies better.
