Simple way to discretely store items
on May 24, 2011
I bought a couple of these for my kids, they had problems with their cousins stealing their allowance money and wanted to hide it. After seeing these items, I puchased more for other uses as well.
These are made from real product containers, so they look outstanding. Without picking them up and shaking them, there is no way to tell its not the real thing. If you pick it up, it just feels like an empty container unless you have something heavy inside it.
Keep in mind, this is not a safe, nor is it secure, it is simply a tool to HIDE something in. If you keep a DrPepper can in a drawer, it is obviously out of place. If you keep the hairspray can version in your closet, it is going to get attention. I personally use this to store items in my car. You can leave a can of warm DrPepper rolling around your floorboard or passenger seat without anyone even batting an eye at it. You may lose your car stereo, but this can will still be under your seat. These are great for extra house keys, personal items (femenine products if youre a woman who doesnt want to carry them in her purse or leave them laying around your car for your date to see), obvious uses for the 'hippy' in your life. I wouldnt recomend storing something truely valuable in it, but thats your call not mine.
Couple minor potential problems:
-Make sure EVERYONE in your household knows about this, otherwise it could potentially get tossed into the garbage as an empty container. Even if there is weight inside, if anyone tried to open it they will figure it out, or just throw it away.
-Once you unscrew the lid to the secret compartment, it leaves a sharp edge. I understand that if they clean the edge up it will make an obvious mark on the outside, but beware that the edge on the opening is sharp. This is the case with all of the containers I purchased.
