    Storing suppressors on peg hooks?

    I'm trying to free up some space in my safe and would love to store some suppressors on stainless steel pegboard hooks like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Tebery-Stainl.../dp/B07C4K7HXH

    I don't want to use my existing shelf space and this is the ideal method to store a bunch of cans in a small space.

    I would grind off the angled bit at the end.

    Is this a good or bad idea? Would the metal affect the suppressor internals? MY pegboard is also steel.

    I could only find steel, plastic and zinc hooks. I could coat them with plastidip, but that ends up going soft and I can see it gunking up the internals.

    How are you guys storing your cans?

    You could stack them across.
    You could hang them in their carry cases.
    I keep mine on a gun most of the time, or toss it on a shelf in the safe.

    In reality, i doubt you would damage them they way you described. Ss baffles are very hard.
    Plastic hooks/pegs would be preferred

    Shouldn't be a problem. Baffles should be carbon coated anyway.

    How is that not going to take up more room than laying them flat on a shelf?

    I don't hang suppressors on pegs, but I do hang rifles and some pistols on them. My concern was having the metal pegs in contact with the metal, wood or plastic of the firearms. Here's what I did to solve that problem.
    Start with the peg of your choice.


    Then get some flexible clear plastic tubing that has an inside diameter that's just slightly smaller than the outside diameter of the pegs. The tubing can be found in the plumbing section at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. The tubing won't slide on the peg as-is, so you'll need to use a lubricant to get it on there. I've found that petroleum jelly works very well.


    Put a little inside the tube and then slide it on. You'll probably need to twist as you press it on.


    After the tube is on as far as it will go, cut it at the end of the peg.


    Then just put the peg on your pegboard and hang whatever you want on it.

    On a shelf in a safe. If you must pegboard them, then just do it like a handgun with two plastic covered supports. They will take up minimum space on your pegboard.

    Pretty cool idea. Thanks
    OP, I store mine attached to the gun or laying on a shelf in the safe.

    So I ended up kinda using this idea. Instead of tubing I used heat shrink. Thanks for the inspiration... Freed up some valuable space!
