Like any other homeowner I feel prone to robbery and have taken a number of precautionary steps to prevent it from occurring. I ensure that I lock up and leave the outside lights on at night.
However I felt like these werent enough. My concerns were appeased when I was introduced to diversion safes. In this case I could make a book safe my hiding place and no one would think that an average book would contain valuables.
Covert hiding safes as I have found out are ordinary-looking things that are used as storage for theft-prone items. They can be anything from soda cans to bathroom cleaners and are made as such to help keep robbers from finding precious items.
Burglars would probably not give thought to rummaging through stacks of books in order to determine whether there is jewelry or money hidden inside them. This would take too much time and a lot of time is what these delinquents do not have.
An obvious hiding area like a drawer would likely be the initial location that a housebreaker would look into. According to this logic I feel confident that my things are safe inside one of these smartly concealed hiding safes.
A book safe is a true book which is hollowed out in the middle and fitted with a container. Stashed within mine are my jewelry money keys and credit cards. Because ample hiding area is provided it doesnt bulge that could give away its actual function when I put things inside it.
I find its portability also extremely convenient. Every time I have to take a quick trip outside and need to carry an important item that I have to leave in a car I utilize a book safe to hide it from possible thieves.
To make a book safe an effective hiding place I have found out that it must be put into a location in which books are typically found. Up to now I have done well with this secret hiding safe and it has made me sleep far more quietly in the evening.
