when rifles were stored in the armory, they were put on a rack or on a wall 20 sometimes 50 wide. a rod was passed thru all the locked safeties and secured at one end. this way they couldn't be grabbed off the rack if broken in to.
Makes sense ... M1s were a hot item on the black market. Lots of thieves were known to hang out around military bases and armories back then. No doubt some were even Cold War spies. Less so once M16s became widely issued.
