We analyze a scheme for storage of entanglement quantified by the quantum Fisher information in the two-axis countertwisting model. A characteristic feature of the two-axis countertwisting Hamiltonian is the existence of the four stable center and two unstable saddle fixed points in the mean-field phase portrait. The entangled state is generated dynamically from an initial spin-coherent state located around an unstable saddle fixed point. At an optimal moment of time the state is shifted to a position around the stable center fixed points by a single rotation, where its dynamics and properties are approximately frozen. We also discuss evolution with noise. In some cases the effect of noise turns out to be relatively weak, which is explained by parity conservation.
