Might want to consider installing the Nanovault in the trunk and lock up the gun someplace nearby to work so the existence of the gun does not become common knowledge among the valets. Problem is that nearby place becomes a habitual stop where someone could notice the daily transfer. Not sure there is a good solution.
I don't know where she carries when she carries, but couldn't doing a transfer at her trunk leave her open to an accusation of brandishing?

I'm with you about there not being a good solution. She would almost be better off parking on the street and keeping the valets out of her car. I have a strong suspicion that there is more to that than meets the eye.

You know, if it was me I would go to the local alarm shop and alarm my trunk, console, and glove compartment with one of those devices that would call my smart phone. It might also be a good idea to put in an inexpensive dash cam with a locking door over the memory card. Those valets have no business at all doing anything but moving your car, even if snooping is at employer direction. If there was an intrusion I would call the police and press charges to the fullest extent possible. If it turned out to be at employer direction I would call (I can't believe I'm going to say this) the ACLU and sue the daylights out of everyone involved.

You could get a decent gun pouch for little money. Put a gun lock or chain around something reasonably permanent in the car and lock the gun with it. Then put the gun in a pouch and zip it up.

You can only protect from the honest thief.

This to cover the gun:

And a gun/rifle barrel lock cable to secure it to the steering column or somewhere.

Edit: just found it. Titan Gun Vault.

The second photo is one I found just a couple of days ago and am in the process of finding out if it'll fit my vehicle. Console Bunker, if anyone else is interested.

The third photo...is just...insane. How did they even get it up there?

Witt, there is an option that is under $30 that is a steel box with key lock that has a cable anchor you can fasten around a seat mount.

Great idea. I didn't do any research - just wanted to table the idea.

Always worth a shot! I just have an unreasonable desire to be armed in any circumstance and automobiles have always vexxed me because they are so easy to break into or steal. I never want to arm a criminal, so I've tried to keep up with the industry. The steel box fastened to a seat frame was the very first one I ever bought! It works on the cheap, but there are better options available. Like a holster, it's always better to know exactly where your gun is (the box can slide around) and be able to draw it without looking (box requires key).

Used to surf Malibu in the early '60's. We could never leave anything in the car, glove box or trunk...someone would break in and help themselves. It was best to take what you value and leave your vehicle unlocked. We watched people after just walking away from their vehicles and less than 5 minutes someone would be trying to get in.

I always thought about a metal box bolted to the floor where the hardware was inside so without unlocking (or breaking in) you couldn't take the box or the contents.
