Built this tactical gear caddy for my Granddaughter She has a degree in Criminal Justice working as a Deputy for the Sheriffs Dept. She was elated to receive the Cop (Gear) Caddy it has a place for most of her Tactical gear. The Caddy has a place to hang her BP Vest, duty belt; there is a lockable Gun storage box and three hangers for her uniform. The rear has four outlets to charge her Flash light, Body Cam, Radio Etc. All the wiring is concealed inside the post and under the stand only the pig tail plug is seen.
Fabricated from Red Oak and Sassafras, ply wood was used for the box and part of the base. The Caddy is Painted a Stealth Black color. Thanks for looking you comments will be appreciated.

I cobbled together something like this while in Iraq. Makes it easy to have everything you need organized and ready to go.

Yours is much better!!! LOL

Nice work.

Thats a great project you made for your granddaughter. She’ll think of you every time she uses her caddy even more when grandpa is gone. She’ll hang her shirt, put away her gun and feel the loving bond you’ve created by building it for her. Police officers deserve our respect and gratitude for their service that protects all of us each day. Thanks for inspiring

Great build. One of our daughters is on the Sherrif’s Dept. in Calif. and I’ll bet she would love one of these as well. Thanks for sharing
