They say the best place to hide something is in plain sight. When
you have valuables, money, or priceless items they need to be kept
in a safe place. But why spend a lot of money on those large, ugly
traditional safes if they are more expensive and much larger than
you actually need? A couple well-placed hidden compartment safes
might be the better solution.
What are hidden compartment safes?
Hidden compartment safes look like real items
around the house, but they have enough space in them to keep a
surprisingly large amount of your valuables and personal items. They
look like cleaning products or soda cans or books or even an
electrical outlet. But they’re not!
What kind of hidden compartment safes should
When shopping around for hidden compartment
safes you want to make sure that you buy ones that resemble real
products as much as possible. For example, soda cans that are
weighted to feel full are more likely to be ignored by an intruder
than the ones that are empty and have distinctive rattle. Also, make
sure the brands are real: poorly designed hidden compartment safes
use brands that no one has ever heard of, while well designed ones
use common products.
Are hidden compartment safes effective?
To answer this question, put yourself in the
shoes of an intruder skulking through a dark empty house. If you
don't know what time the homeowners are coming back, what are you
more likely to do: Open every book in the bookshelf? Open every pop
can in the fridge? Look at every can of cleaning product under the
sink? Pry open every electrical outlet in the house?
Probably not. This is a huge time waster in the
vain hopes of finding hidden compartment safes loaded with
valuables. Your time will probably be spent opening a few drawers,
looking for loose cash, and leaving. That's the beauty of hidden
compartment safes. They use such common items that no thief will
spend the time searching the house so thoroughly!
Who should use hidden compartment safes?
That's easy: everyone! Hidden compartment safes
are an excellent solution for anyone from a college student to a
homeowner to a person living in a retirement home. And they will
find them useful and much more practical than a traditional
wall-safe. Other practical uses include a school or gym locker, when
you’re at the beach, or even in your car. These are all places that
are often robbed but don't need to be if valuables are hidden away.
Next time you’re thinking about leaving your
house, take a look around. You’ve worked hard for the nice things
you have. Protect them! What can you put into a hidden compartment
safe to keep out of an intruder’s hands?
