Peace of mind and space-saving: The bad guys will never find your valuables when you stash them in these clever hiding spots.
Who wants to mess with high voltage? Answer: Nobody. That’s why your valuables are well-protected behind this faux electrical panel that’s actually a wall safe. A combination lock appears to offer an extra measure of security for your electrical system, but it’s really the key to unlocking this hard steel vault ($329). The box is designed to fit between standard wall studs for easy installation.

This fake electrical outlet is a perfect place to stash small valuables and extra cash. It’s easy to install, and at $5.95, it’s inexpensive. Just don’t forget to tell your family why the iPad isn’t charging.
You might never have seen the tops of your doors — ever. Which is why they make a good hiding place for small valuables. This little tucked-away safe was made using a cigar tube with a screw-on lid. Bore a hole in the top of a hollow-core door, and include a recessed lip to hold a top that’s a bit larger than the tube — that way, the tube won’t fall inside the door (a washer screwed to the cigar tube top is the perfect lid).
You’ve prepped for the zombie apocalypse with gold coins, running shoes, and a few weeks worth of freeze-dried food. Where do you keep all that stuff safe until you really need it? If you equip your king-size bed with an armored bed bunker ($5,730), you’ll be ready when the zombies arrive.
Hey, even toddlers need to get away from it all now and then. Your little ones would love a secret compartment tucked away beneath a staircase. This one features spring-loaded hinges, carpet, and rope lights to keep everything bright and cheery. When the door is closed, it’s hard to see it’s even there.
