That sir is a cryptex. Readily available on Amazon.

u/dontsuckmydick · 93 pointsr/funny

Fire safes are made to prevent people from stealing stuff as well as protect from fire for a short amount of time. They should still be bolted down. Anything you're worried about losing in a fire would probably suck just as much to lose to theft and putting it in a safe like this without bolting it down guarantees it goes out the door with any thief.

Edit: You can downvote me all you want. I was just trying to save someone from getting their shit stolen. Even this cheap SentrySafe fire safe comes with a bolt down kit.

u/zapatodefuego · 36 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I researched these not too long ago and to sum up what I found: small document firesafes are kind of terrible.

There's a few on Amazon for less than $100 like this one but the reviews are usually not all that great. More importantly, the smaller the file safe the less fireproof it is. Anything you can pick up and move yourself is probably only rated for .5-1.5 hours in a fire.

u/dildostickshift · 27 pointsr/pics
u/throwaway_23458 · 20 pointsr/tifu

I feel bad for you OP, but you really should have secured better.

I have a 1.x cubic foot safe (similar to this) that is bolted to the floor with about $15 worth of anchors & bolts from Lowes (bolted through the inside of the safe). I bought it for protecting document & valuables from fire & theft. While it might be small enough to carry it away (it's about 100lbs), bolting it down prevents that, and there is no way it will be pried out (seriously it would probably take a stick of dynamite to force it out).

It sound like overkill, but for $200 & a couple hours work it is absolutely worth alot of piece of mind. Honestly if you are going to have thousands of dollars of anything in your house (be it jewelry/drugs/cash/etc), shouldn't it be secure?

u/shakey_bakey · 19 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

Here are a few: A hairbrush diversionary safe. Here's a regular itty bitty safe for like $60. If my inlaws ever come to stay with us, I'm definitely getting one to keep all our baby-prevention devices safe...

u/ChimericalRequem · 15 pointsr/raisedbynarcissists

So I did a post online a while back about how to hide stuff from parents, and here's some of the stuff I included. There are a variety of hidey objects on Amazon. This hair brush safe is a good example. Or this dictionary. You can also use air vents- remove the front plate of the air vent, and you can hide stuff. You can also use a cereal box. Eat half of the cereal, lift up the plastic bag of cereal, and put your wallet in the box. Then put the cereal back on top. You can do a similar thing with your trash bin in your room, as long as you remember to keep it partly full. (Not too full that the N may empty it, but also not so empty that you can see something in the bottom.) Just keep the trash in a bag in the bin, and have your wallet in the actual bin underneath the trash in the bag. You can also buy a cheap vase and flowers from the dollar store, put your wallet inside, then cover the top with easter grass so anyone looking inside can't tell what's in it. You'll want a vase that isn't see-through, but you can always paint it if you can't find one.

I wonder if I should make a post on this subreddit about this, but I'm not sure if people would find it helpful.

u/bogseywogsey · 13 pointsr/personalfinance

just as an aside, get a hold of all of your personal documents, birth certificate, ssn card, passport if you have, immunization records if you have, car title, etc., this should no longer be in the hands of your parents. And buy a fireproof box to keep them in, this is what you grab first if your place ever catches fire.

u/omar12 · 11 pointsr/funny

And yes, you can buy the can

u/sigilvii · 9 pointsr/funny

Sorry, I was being lazy. Here:

u/1800OopsJew · 8 pointsr/funny

Holes in the bottom? I don't know what you mean. To put a bolt through a hole in the bottom of a fire safe, and then bolt it to some other surface, wouldn't the holes have to go all the way through the bottom of the safe, and you'd put the bolts in while the safe was open, from the inside? And then the bolts protrude out the bottom, and you put that length through whatever you're bolting the safe to, and then finally the nuts on the other side of that?

I might be wrong on the placement and depth of these holes, but if that's the way your fire safe is laid out, you might want to get another one. Your safe shouldn't have gaping holes in it. Definitely not your fire safe, meant to keep things safe from fire. Multiple holes in your safe seems like it'd make a better furnace.

Edit: I think the difference is, I'm thinking of something that looks like this:

And you're talking about something more like this:

u/jr1712 · 8 pointsr/cripplingalcoholism

I deleted Facebook, and hide my keys, wallet, and phone. I have thought about getting this .When I get lost in booze during my benders I am trying to get off this planet. I am not trying to become inebriated / enlightened and tell people how I feel, buy things I suddenly want, and go places I didn't know I had much an urge to go to. It used to be a big problem for me, but hasn't been for a few months now. I stock up and I stay home. I spend all the time between these drinking sessions trying to be dry for as long as possible. I hope you find something that works for you.

u/Awesomesauce1492 · 8 pointsr/DIY

The linked post is my recent hobby/boredom project of making a decoy safe. See the Imgur album for specifics on the steps I took.

This all arose out of another recent and odd hobby, ancient coins. Long story short, I spent a whole weekend watching HBO's show Rome, and since then have been engrossed in learning about ancient history. I'm deep into the History of Rome Podcast, read the Epic of Gilgamesh, and bought some Dogfish Head beer that's based on a 2700 year old recipe. Then in the midst of all this I impulse purchased a few [Roman/Byzantine coins]( because I thought it would be cool to hold them while reading The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. Then I realized that I can't have solid gold coins laying out on my shelf... so why not buy a safe.

Well it turns out that pretty much every safe under $2000 is useless, so I started looking into decoy safes, like this [Dictionary]( But really, who the hell has a dictionary on their shelf, so I began looking into hollowed out books like [this one](, but that would have been about $250 for the size I needed. So then I embarked on the project linked above.

All in all, the project itself is probably wholly necessary, as I've just posted my secret to reddit and basically told all my friends about it because I think it's cool. Also, keeping valuables in your home is usually not the best idea. Also also, gold and silver are terrible investments.... but they are shiny and I've always wanted a treasure chest.

So TLDR: HBO show -> impulse purchase of antiquities -> cheap safe -> idea to spend hours hunched over textbooks with an xacto knife -> lockbox that is probably 10% more secure than it was. But it was fun to tinker with.

u/thepatman · 7 pointsr/legaladvice

I dunno if you're aware, but that safe is a real product.

u/theConfusedGeek · 7 pointsr/GalaxyNote8

Use something like this.

Fireproof Safe Bag LiPo Guard Battery Charge Charging Pouch Case (Silver, Small)

u/madpiratebippy · 6 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

A medium sized fire safe is like, $50 and you can keep it forever.

I have one for paperwork. Car titles, insurance documents, things like that- but it's easy to slip the non replaceable jewelry in it, as well.

Why is she likely to smash through your room- to destroy things? Steal? Snoop? Why do you livewith her if she does this?

Also, I'd get a REALLY LOUD alarm and give FIL the fob to turn it off, if someone messes with the door. Like this one.

It sounds like she LITERALLY can't stand boundaries, and that's what a locked/closed door represents to her- a physical NO. But a little information about why she does this could help come up with a plan. Like, if she's just a snoop, perhaps taking her into your room, under your supervision, and pointing everything out before you go would take the 'fun' out of violating your space?

u/whatchamacallit1 · 6 pointsr/trees

Im sorry but these are doing more harm then anything.

The air bubble is always a dead giveaway.

The label is a give away.

They have an odd weight.

Buying one of these stashes with liquid is a bad idea.

Just look at items like this. You can throw this in your car and like 99% of people wouldnt even think twice if your female. The bottle is just a bad bad bad idea. Even from a small town a cop can just turn it upside down and realize something is off with it.

u/I_Fuck_Whales · 6 pointsr/Silverbugs

I keep all of mine in a gun safe by made by sentry safe. Mainly because I own guns as well. I know sentry safe makes smaller safes built more towards fire and floods. I have my gun safe bolted down to prevent theft. Im more concerned about fire as well as I live in a pretty safe area (I know anything can happen though).

Here is a smaller one:

And here is one similar to mine:

u/mjxa1 · 5 pointsr/saplings

Ditto on this, OP should def act like he knows what he's doing. If he worried about getting caught, I invested in one of these a while ago and it hasn't failed me yet. Just put the product in there, sit it in your cup holder, and don't drive like an asshole.

u/sirshartsalot · 5 pointsr/AskReddit

You need a fire safe. Yes, you do. You need renter's insurance on your apartment, and a fire safe. It's $30. Put in your birth certificate, your passport, any relevant medical documentation, the title to your car, your "good" jewelry, and any cash you might otherwise leave lying around. You're an adult, this is a piece of adult hardware that you need.


u/Hephaestus_Rex · 5 pointsr/wicked_edge

Then there's always the Jurassic Park solution: you could try hiding your good shaving cream or soap in a shaving cream can safe.

u/eisforevan · 5 pointsr/Silverbugs

I am planning on purchasing this model.

I prefer the combination lock as opposed to the keypad lock because I don't want to be reliant on a battery to get to my stuff.

Analog> digital sometimes.

u/Zman420 · 4 pointsr/airsoft

Yeah, don't fuck around with damaged lipos. It might well be fine, but I would not keep it indoors, just to be safe. Keep it somewhere fire-proof. Also consider getting lipo baggies - LIKE THESE

u/EyeballFryer · 4 pointsr/flashlight

I have this smaller LiPo pouch and this larger LiPo pouch that I use when I'm charging my batteries and also for storing the batteries when I'm done charging. Theoretically, they should be better than this LiPo bag, because the LiPo bag could trap heat inside, at least from what I've read in the forums.

Are they really explosion proof? I hope I never find out.

And for an extra layer of protection, I put the LiPo pouches in this Craftsman metal toolbox which I keep loosely latched.

u/AssBlaster_69 · 4 pointsr/steroids

Testicular atrophy is something you want to avoid for more than just cosmetic reasons. It's not good to let the cells inside your balls shrivel up and die. It'll make a complete recovery less likely, should you choose to come off.

If I were you, I would consider hiding it one one of these or getting a minifridge.

u/BoredDellTechnician · 4 pointsr/childfree

Get yourself a nice big heavy-duty fireproof safe. If you go with something that's about a hundred pounds, there's no real way to have your parents casually take the thing out of your room.

Nicer safes have electronic or biometric locks that your parents won't be able to defeat. It'll be a good place to keep your valuable documents, medications, jewelry, ect. It won't be a bad investment because when you move out you'll always have secure storage wherever you live.

u/Bananapepper89 · 4 pointsr/homedefense

Are you buying this to secure items from theft or mainly protection from fire/floods/etc.

How much are you looking to spend? How much fire protection is needed? Will you need fast access to the contents?

Location of the safe is also important when considering a purchase. My handgun safe, for example, is fire resistant to 1700F for an hour and waterproof. Average house fire temperature is something like 1100-1300F, not hot enough to melt my safe. BUT if you place it in the basement the accumulated material/embers are going to act like an oven and it might get hot enough to melt it. Even if the safe itself doesn't melt can your hard drives and documents withstand 1000F? Make copies of everything important and keep off-site backups.

My small safe

I also dislike anything battery operated and prefer mechanical locks. Personal preference but I feel like there is less chance for failure of the mechanism as long as you buy something of decent quality.

Lastly, if you are expecting the safe to protect from theft BOLT IT DOWN. Anything sub 300lb is easy to carry off with a hand dolly. I would recommend a minimum 600lb safe if you don't want to bolt down.

u/SaddamIsntDead · 4 pointsr/Ice_Poseidon
u/notmyselftoday · 3 pointsr/StonerProTips

Little kids are curious. Get a small fire safe for $50-60 and lock up your stash and pipes whenever not in use. This one is waterproof so it does a pretty good job containing any odors.

u/Selectbk · 3 pointsr/Drugs

I'm not sure what size you're looking for but this may be your best bet. I've had the medium sized one and it worked great for about a year and a half before I broke it. This would be your best deal because the ones with actual metal are a lot smaller and way more expensive.

If your looking for something concealable I've also bought this and it worked great. Both are key locks but are perfect for our uses. Easy as hell to hide too.

I snuck on some gummies using this. Didn't get caught personally, but keep in mind it's not allowed and is a risk.

Probably not the most surprising, but I thought this was cool when I found it! 💖

u/buttplug_thro · 3 pointsr/sex

What I would suggest as someone who went through this as well, is to get one of those [book safes.] ( That one is the one I used and it can fit a few in there. There are also some [good butt plugs] ( on Amazon for relatively cheap. Also, if you can find an Amazon locker near you you won't have to risk your parents opening your package.

u/Dark_Knight_Reddits · 3 pointsr/alberta

May I ask what safe you bought?

Was is something cheaper like this? Specs only rate it for 30 minutes at 1550°f.

Or something slightly more expensive and larger like this? Specs slightly better at 1 hour at 1700°f/927°C.

I'd expect it takes longer than 1 hour to completely burn a house down. So I doubt either safe contents would last. But I thought I'd ask to be sure. I own the second safe I linked, but I have it mainly for burglary, flooding, and smaller fires. Not completely burnt down houses.

I don't recommend electronic safes unless you are spending big money, most have a severe venerability to magnet opening the solenoid. Save your money and buy the standard combination dial with the extra key. Unless you don't care about the burglary aspect and only want a safe for fire and flooding. It's less convenient, but means a burglar would have to take longer than 5 seconds to open your safe. All safes are able to be broken into, you just want to slow them down as long as possible.

Edit: According to Google, most house fires seem to only reach 1100°f, so it's probably the length it burns for. Though the added part of a forest fire might increase temperatures. For normal house fires where firefighters can actively try and stop it these safes might stand up to the heat, but with no firefighters combating the house fires as the forest fire was too large they really don't stand a chance. They also recommend storing it on a concrete basement if you have it, and next to any metal that won't burn like a furnace. That way it's getting heat from less areas and will last longer.

u/Tito1337 · 3 pointsr/ThriftStoreHauls

I don't know what is so special about the 1100 model, because the 1200 and 1210 which are the same size retail for 22$ and 29$. Hell, the 1200 is even 16$ at The Home Depot

Sorry, I didn't mean to diminish your good find

u/Maxinprogress · 3 pointsr/chastity

Found it :

It doesnt have a week or month long program though

u/lysergico · 3 pointsr/Petioles

I actually locked the keys inside with the weed. The manual states to never do that, but whatever. Giving the set of keys to a trusted third party would also work of course, but then I'd potentially feel compelled to retrieve the keys, so I lock them up.

u/rekstout · 3 pointsr/guns

There's a trade off between quick access and security to be had here.

Anything with a simple keypad or basic combination dial is not going to be as secure as as a full on keyed and "classic" safe tumbler lock but the latter is not really going to easily accessible during an emergency.

Keys get lost or left in inconvenient places and fiddly tumblers can easily be fumbled in a panic which is why many quick access pistol safes have simple keypads.

If preventing access by a ten year old is you main concern an not quick access then just buy a sentry fire safe which is keyed and tumbler locked like this....

It's not secure against a burglar by any means but neither would any mini safe be. It would however be far more tamper proof against a child unless they are willing to take a sledge/cold chisel to it.

u/costellofolds · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm going to assume you're living in a dorm. Dorm living can be a real beast, especially if you're on a floor where you share a bathroom. Things that can make it much more comfortable:

u/Raveynfyre · 2 pointsr/raisedbynarcissists

As soon as you are 18, withdraw the money from your joint account and open another at a different bank, in your name only. Secure the account with a password (that anyone will be required to have) to protect your assets. You'll probably have to explain that you are in an abusive situation at home and that you are trying to ensure no one tries to steal it by either pretending to be you, or by claiming to do anything on your behalf.

Change your paychecks to direct deposit and get a debt card tied to that account. Set up the account to be paperless, stress the abusive situation at home again if necessary. Next, invest in this to hide the card in (or any bank details) when at home. (My husband saw this recently and thought it was hilarious.)

I'm not going to lie here, the fallout from this isn't going to be fun, but this will mean you have that money (that you earned and belongs to you 100%) when it's time to get your own place or get a roommate. If your dad throws a bitchfit, call that police officer ASAP.

As one Jan 17th baby to another, have a happy birthday in 9 days! I'll be out of the country and unable to wish you a happy one next week. (Plus, if you're a nerd like me, the rest of the world writes our birthday as 1701, the same as the number to the Enterprise!)

Also, where are you going to college? Detroit? Take your watch. It'll be as fine there as it will be anywhere. Hell, even if you were going to Detroit I'd say you should take the watch.

These things are meant to be worn. They need to collect the patina of all the experiences and adventures you put them through. That's the whole point of a daily-driver. They absorb your gestalt and when you pass them on whoever you give it to will then carry a little piece of you and your history with them. You don't get that by leaving it to collect dust in a vault son.

Just remember to exercise due caution. Don't wear it if you know you're going anywhere dicey. If you have a shared dorm room, it's good practice to keep a fireproof safe for your passport, emergency cash, and other important documents. You can keep a few important valuables and sentimental knick-knacks in there as well. Other than that, enjoy the stuff you have. If it's gone, at the end of the day it's only money.

u/journalizing · 2 pointsr/Journaling

a lockable safe shaped like a book could hold a smaller notebook

a safe for letter-sized documents

a cheaper document safe

In addition to increasing your privacy, some of these safes provide water-proofing and fire-proofing for your journal. On the other hand if a burglar visits your home (or your have a druggie in your family) she will assume the safe is full of valuables and steal it.

u/Undercover_Dinosaur · 2 pointsr/JurassicPark

Can safe

It's on Amazon, I got one for Christmas! it didn't come with the vial holder like i had hoped. But it's still cool.

u/frikk · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I use Barbosol and they're like $1.15 for a can and it last me a month or two or three. Am I just lucky because it's made in my state? It's on sale for $.99 sometimes.

Just looked it up online. Holy christ, I had no idea what kind of a deal we get here..

EDIT: I'M AN IDIOT. Lol that's a "safe" for transporting things like, uh, dinosaur embryos. I thought the reviews were a joke... nope.

That little plastic thing will not stop you if you really want what's inside. Speaking from experience. Try this one.

Shared expenses-an app, some poster board with the info written on a way..something in written form (be in an app or otherwise)

Safety deposit box-It's these little things office supply stores sell-

Something like that. There are different styles and sizes and prices. Good place to stash loose cash/valuables you don't want stolen/lost/apartment catches on fire.

u/DiDgr8 · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

The key word is "hiding". If you put the pills in their original bottles somewhere your folks can't/won't see, that's the solution. It all depends on your situation. If your folks are really looking for stuff, they'll find it. Fake shaving cream, fake wall sockets, all can work.

u/chrismetalrock · 2 pointsr/ebikes

This brings up an interesting thought. I used to be in the money pit of a hobby that is drone building, and for drones it was recommended to use fire safe battery pouches or an actual safe. I did have some LIPOs that expanded a bit and made the pouch look bloated but never any real issues. Being that ebike batteries are much larger it is probably a good idea to store them in an area that won't cause trouble when not in use and not being watched.

u/CunningKobold · 2 pointsr/DnD

The best part is it's cheap! $12 on Amazon! for the cost, I'm VERY happy with the quality. The box is wooden with cork paper inside and a faux leather cover with the design embossed into it, so it looks REALLY nice, especially for 12 bucks. I didn't like the way the die clattered in the bottom so I snagged a bit of felt for it, but that's also only a couple bucks at any given craft store, and it's got a rare earth elements magnet to close the lid, so your stuff stays relatively secure during travel and won't spill out easily.

u/glitch1985 · 2 pointsr/homesecurity

Do you happen to have a large gun safe that you could put something like this into?

You might also want to think about getting a safe deposit box at a bank/credit union if it's not a document you need quick access to.

Congrats on the gift & thanks for sharing! How generous! =)

First, on every hike: nature calls, and there's not always a potty. Usually just a rock or a tree. With these tissues, you can avoid "eco guilt".

Wash up:

& always have a hankie or kleenex. Cos you need them. No need to link that. You have them.

If you have pets & you bring them with you, a portable water bowl is an absolute.

Merrel Hiking Shoe/Boot. Your shoe or boot is your preference & depends on the trail, but you will ALWAYS need to replace them every year, at least, if you hike often. The group I hike with favors Merrels. I linked the Amazon Merrel store cos I'm not sure of your trail conditions, climate, shoe/boot preference etc. A good hiking shoe is always at the top of my list when it comes to gear.

Rope. Cos once when we were hiking my dogs missed the trail and jumped down a steep cliff. We had to rescue them. A rope sure would have come in handy!

Honestly, I prefer to carry a back pack with my things and really don't like the camelpaks. They're a pain in the ass to keep clean. I love my reusable wide-mouthed BPA-free water bottle. There's 2 sizes. They're perfect. I use the small one all the time, but the bigger one might be handy for longer hikes.

Most trails have clean water sources, but if not you may want a water bottle with built-in filtration such as Seychelle.

They also have ones shaped like water bottles, cans of fruit, shaving cream, wd-40, and my favorite one. Some of these ones look like they might suit you better because the opening isn't smaller than the chamber like the soda can.

u/calladus · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

It's time to start watching out for your stuff.

First, get a cheap fireproof safe. This one is pretty good quality and won't get opened easily. You may need something bigger. Try a second-hand store and ask for lockboxes and fire safes.

Next, make sure you can find your safe if someone steals the whole thing. Also, bicycle chain lock it to something solid.

Then keep your room safe. Buy a lock for the door when you're not there, and get a room alarm for when you ARE there and someone thinks they can sneak in on you.

Last, find a good hiding place for your stuff - even if you have to make one.

Find a place where you can hide your safe where people don't think to look. Does your house have wood floors & carpet? Time to pull up a corner and see if you can loosen (or saw through) a floorboard.

Don't be shy about be shy about modifying your room to get a hidden area!

u/IAmTheFridge · 2 pointsr/guns

u/slick8086 · 2 pointsr/funny

could start with these or find their supplier and buy direct.

u/TomTheGeek · 2 pointsr/guns

Get a quick access safe for the handgun, mount it next to your bed. Get a gun cabinet for the long guns and any other ammunition or handguns. Neither of those are "safes" in that they won't even slow down a determined thief but they will keep them out of most peoples hands. For a "real safe" the minimum price starts at around $3k.

It is a book where you hide important things in. I would use it to help me and my family hide important belongings.

u/debtfree29 · 2 pointsr/organization

I keep my irreplaceable photos in fireproof safes. I find they fit quite a lot of photos in them. They aren't super cheap but i don't find them unreasonable given that the photos are irreplaceable. I also leave the key in the lock so that if a burglar ever broke in they could open it and realize it's just pictures haha.

Edited to add that i might have provided a link to a very small one and it might be worth checking sizes out at a store.

Here's a link to one but you can find them at Walmart, Target, Staples, etc.

Amazon sells these false wall outlets for under 10 bucks. Pretty fucking awesome.

u/GuitarsRgreat · 2 pointsr/trees

I use a Barbasol can that has a bottom that screws open. its so discreet and i can take it in my car anywhere. its like what Dennis Nedry had in Jurassic Park. you can get them here:

u/iamjustsomejerk · 1 pointr/DarkNetMarkets

get one of these. install it behind a desk and plug a lamp into it. unless you have something particularly smelly hidden in it, nobody will ever think twice about it.

First question, she's not a joint account holder to your checking account is she?

If not, you need to find a way to prevent her from getting your financial card. Maybe get a cheap safe/lock box off amazon? Assuming she's not willing to go as far as steal/breaking the safe, here's some options:

u/thatsnogood · 1 pointr/Denver

You can just buy a small one for your house. There are some more complicated ones too but this will withstand just about any house fire.

u/FullDesadulation · 1 pointr/toddlers

If you're just trying to keep a toddler out of it, consider looking into a fireproof box. This one is a decent size, and can be locked and the key put up.

u/Mr_dusty12 · 1 pointr/guns
u/staxnet · 1 pointr/knifeclub

I use something like this. If someone is determined, the lock can be picked (like most locks), but it will keep out prying eyes. And, by locking up your blades, you will appear more responsible should law enforcement ever come in contact with your knife collection. But it's not a real safe and someone can just walk off with it. It should keep your roommate and RA out of your business, however.

u/GreggyPuffs · 1 pointr/guns

For your situation I would get something like this:

It will provide basic security and is easy to move, holds plenty and isn't too big. Take pictures and document all your guns serials and get renters insurance to cover any potential loss.

u/JJMcGee83 · 1 pointr/WA_guns

Biometric safes are shit and easily cracked. Electronic locks are unreliable. You want something with a mechanical lock either with a key or a combo. I"m not sure if that exists in a small dedicated pistol safe so you might just want to get one of the lockable safes from lowes or home depot that can be bolted to the floor. As a bonus you can put important documents (Social Security Cards, Birth Certificates, Passports) and any other random valuables you have. It's going to be way more secure than any cheap gun safe option.

Something like this

or this

Is going to be way way more secure than any basic pistol safe and I lknow it sounds expensive but GunVaults are going for $100

As a bonus the small Lowes safe doesn't scream "HEY I HAVE A GUN IN HERE" like the pistol safe does.

u/Snackys · 1 pointr/personalfinance

I don't do the best record keeping but this is what I do with any documents involving medical, loan, credit and payment history.

I bought one of these

SentrySafe HD4100 Fireproof Safe and Waterproof Safe with Key Lock 0.65 Cubic Feet

Then I got this

Avery 47993 Two-Pocket Folder, 40-Sheet Capacity, Assorted Colors (Box of 25)

I took all of one color (blue) and labeled one of them Person 1 credit, person 1 dental, person 1 "year and make of car" and put all the maintenance invoices there. Just repeat till you have a spot to dump all the paperwork for a person. Get another color and repeat for another person.

Things that are joint are a third color, and I have a fourth color for pets. I have folders just dedicated to employement history so if I for whatever reason need to see some pay stubs or documents I signed I should be able to grab the folder and dig there. For me, I think it's fine enough since you rarely need to review those files, you just want to know exactly where to dig when you do.

u/SlowSteadyProgress · 1 pointr/steroids


My preferred solution:

  1. Book safe
  2. Wal-mart seat cushion foam (Buy it in the store, it's cheap.)

    Approx 2 layers of foam will fit in the book safe. Use scissors to cut out shapes for vials. Enough room for at least 10x 10ml vials, plus you could just throw in a bag of orals.

    Put the book on a high-enough shelf, because the "pages" look fake. Other than that, it's a great way to prevent snooping, and if you shook it or dropped it all dem gainz are safe inside.
u/ComputerSavvy · 1 pointr/techsupportgore

Wired for power only - controlled by the wall switch and hidden inside the wall behind and below the wall socket.

Most rooms have what is called a switched outlet, usually the top socket controlled by a wall switch and that power socket is usually the farthest from the wall switch. It's intended for use by floor and table lamps so you don't have to walk across a dark room to turn on a light.

By plugging in a lamp to the switched outlet that has a burned out bulb, someone would probably turn the switch off again and then seek out the 2nd lamp in the room, close to the entrance which does work.

The drive would automatically connect to the network by Wi-Fi when powered on by the wall switch. By cloning the MAC of a duplicate drive, when either one and only one at a time were in use, the log files would not be able to distinguish which one was which.

If the decoy drive was left out in the open and seized along with all the other computer equipment, it's MAC address would match what was found in the router's DHCP and computer log files.

As you can probably now see, there are several layers of deception in play here.

It's really fucking sad in this day and age that someone would have to go to these lengths to have privacy for their information, legal or not.

I got this idea after seeing these fake 120V wall outlets that pop out and hide a small storage area for a persons valuables.

Well, today, information is valuable and I expanded on this fake wall outlet idea to make it both actually functional as a power outlet and serve as a data safe.

I would NOT buy one of these cheap plastic fake power outlet safes unless I saw it in person and it matched the color and style of sockets and plates in my house exactly.

When a house is built, the electrical contractor will stick to one brand and style of switches and outlets and they will be typically beige, white or brown, rectangular wall plates with a [single rectangular hole]( wall switch) for both sockets and switches or two oval holes for the power outlets that match the small rectangular flip switches. Everything will be uniform throughout the whole house. They may even be a higher end style and more decorative but they will still be uniform everywhere.

That child's learning game you see on Sesame Street, "One of these things is not like the other" will give away which wall socket is the fake one because all the switches and switch plates as well as the wall outlets are beige and there is this one wall outlet that is white and made of flimsy plastic...

"One of these things is not like the other".

Both Sesame Street and the military taught me to pay attention to detail, that's why if someone is serious about hiding something, concealed or in plain sight, you gotta think through all the little details as I've explained in depth in these posts.

For want of a nail the shoe was lost;
For want of a shoe the horse was lost;
For want of a horse the battle was lost;
For the failure of battle the kingdom was lost—
All for the want of a horse-shoe nail.

Little details matter.

>Fire safes are made to prevent people from stealing stuff as well as protect from fire for a short amount of time. They should still be bolted down. Anything you're worried about losing in a fire would probably suck just as much to lose to theft and putting it in a safe like this without bolting it down guarantees it goes out the door with any thief.
>Edit: You can downvote me all you want. I was just trying to save someone from getting their shit stolen. Even this cheap SentrySafe fire safe comes with a bolt down kit.

I mean, I have several fire safes that I just leave the keys in because they're filled with only important documents. I have a note on one that says Documents Only, check for yourself.

Just pointing out that not all are meant solely to protect stuff from being stolen.

u/cacille · 1 pointr/raisedbynarcissists

It's time for you to do some snooping yourself. Next time mom is out - go through the closet. The junk drawer. Under the counters. Top shelf in the bathrooms. Bedroom closets and drawers. Basement. Shed outside. Garage top shelf. Everywhere someone could hide something. Find everything you can. Then, do your own sort of hiding. Not in the house - if need be, get a little metal box, dig a small hole in the yard, (be careful with the grass. make a small chunk and put it back later). Put the box in the hole. Cover and make it look natural.

For the really important stuff like passport, i second the idea of getting one of those under-shirt carry pouches and putting the cards in there.

Also, if you're brave and know a bit about electricity, you could install a 'fake plug" kinda like this (This is the USA version, I'm sure there's a version for other countries as well) and keep some of the harder-to-carry items you may have (rings, extra cards). All you have to do is disconnect an unused plug in your room and install it. make sure to watch a tutorial "how to change wall socket/plug" video first, and you need to turn off the house elec for a short time also (A few mins).

u/squeakysqueakysqueak · 1 pointr/Constructedadventures

at this time, I get a ton of stuff from amazon, hobby lobby (bleh) and alibaba. Nothing I have is super customized (yet).

I hate to say it, but Hobby lobby has the best inexpensive chests. they are ornate and decently put together and tend to be much cheaper than you'd expect. From there I buy hasps at a hardware store, and if i need to, I'll age them with salt, vinegar, and hydrogen peroxide.

When it comes to an inexpensive cryptex. This one is my favorite

I've tried others but they just aren't as good.

If you want to go suuuuper fancy, This is your jam

hope that helps!

u/CrossP · 1 pointr/Pathfinder_RPG

I have good fun with a box like this
Then I put my spells on colored note cards with color representing spell level. That way, when my wizard preps spells each morning, I lay out the spells I want on the table in front of me and turn them over when I use them.
I also throw in white sheets of paper for scrolls and labeled popsicle sticks for wands.

u/JeffWest01 · 1 pointr/MountainBike

Just get the cheap Chinese lights, they work fine. Get one for your helmet and one for the bars. If you are worried about the batteries you can get a LiPo Guard Battery Charge Charging Pouch Case.

Here is an example of the lights I am talking about

u/ankistar · 1 pointr/asianamerican

This might be a good gift for your cousin as well as for your own ease of mind. Trigger and grip so it's easy to aim and minimizes blowback, and pink so noone mistakes it for a gun.

I feel it's good practice to keep business relationships platonic until the business reationship ends.

Well, that is a serious problem. I wasn't aware of that, and I don't think most gun owners are either. Are you saying this kind of thing is easily opened?

u/mrrp · 1 pointr/CCW

I wouldn't have a gun accessible in a situation like yours. I wouldn't feel the need to get it completely out of the house, but I would make it hard to access. You could get a time-lock safe for your carry weapon.

Even though I have no sleepwalking issues and I don't walk around half-awake, I don't keep my firearm accessible at night. I have kids, and kids do stupid things like sneak out, sneak in, come home at all hours, have friends over, etc. I did recently pick up pepper spray to have at home.

Buy something like this: but in an appropriate size.

No batteries have burst info flame - they only vented. What's more Sanjay said that the battery casing (the big black thing they're in that is then mounted onto the board) is also designed to protect against fire.

Relax just a teeny bit. Disconnect the battery and put it somewhere that it's not next to anything flammable and sit tight.

u/call_me_cthulhu_ · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Okay I have a few things I think would be good to have. First of all target sells these amazing sheet sets. They're inexpensive and they last a long time. Whether you're dorming or not its good to have one of these. Do yourself a favor and get one of these and maybe one of these as well so you're not fighting over plugs. I see you play some instruments so its good to have some of these. Do yourself a favor and get one of these but this one may be better for you. This would be great for all your laundry and accessories. And last but not least this is an amazing desk to have for your computer and books (plus its free shipping :D).

If I win I'd love this and this

Would you like a falafel with that?

u/chrisrico · 1 pointr/TREZOR

> Id quite like to know mine was waterproof and fireproof but still kept in my house. Any cases you can recommend?

Probably your only option is going to be a fire and water rated safe. Something like this provides half hour fire protection. Prices go up from there. I'd probably worry more about securely and redundantly storing your seed words somewhere outside of your home.

u/klitarate · 1 pointr/ofcoursethatsathing

The link that OP posted is not a buy-it-now link. The manufacturer website is for $19.99

It WAS available for prime shipping on Amazon for $14.99 but looks like it is now sold out and is only available for non-prime for $18.99

I'm not sure how well a fire blanket will do with a house fire. But it certainly won't protect from water damage resulting from the fire being put out.

You can get a larger fire safe, that can hold several journals, for around $200. That's about what a year of a small self-storage unit would cost you.

u/crumpledlife · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Congratulations!! You keep mentioning that you bought a nest for your new home. What the hell is a nest? Like a bird's nest?

Do you guys have your fireproof box yet? My parents house burned down when they were newlyweds & they've been really careful about keeping important documents in the fireproof box ever since. Seems like a smart idea.

u/SuperNashwan · 1 pointr/EDC

They're anti-burglar devices. You can get hollow books like these to hide jewelry on your bookshelf, you can buy fake cans to hide valuables in your kitchen, or have fake outlets. You can even get them as WD-40.
