Extreme caution should be used when cutting into sheetrock. There may be electrical wires, or other sensitive materials behind the wall that can’t be seen, and could be damaged when cutting. Use of video content is at own risk.

Project Inspired By:
A picture “The Hidden Wall Safe Socket” http://walyou.com/hidden-wall-safe-socket/
Project History & More Info:
I saw a picture of the hidden wall safe on http://www.lifehacker.com and found it was a product being sold for about $8.00 from ThinkGeek.com (http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/855d/?cpg=cj&ref=&CJURL=&CJID=2209002).
Rather than order one, it seemed feasible to make one with just a couple of materials from the hardware store. Not to mention, much cheaper.
There are so many variations that could be made to this idea. I demonstrated 4 that I came up with, and perhaps the best one was the fact that you could just use the box behind your cable. If you use one of those, it’s completely free, and you don’t have to cut any new holes in your walls.
I put some time into making a parts list for the different variations from Home Depot showing store SKU# and prices. Just for being a fan, you can download the list for free at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bj4xfnwu5hx5dvr/-fxC54OUls
This is an awesome and practical idea. Even if everyone knew about the secret wall safe, there are so many electrical outlets in the house already it would be completely impractical for a thief to open every one trying to find anything valuable. Not to mention dangerous.
Like any security measure, this idea won’t be infallible, but simply is one more idea, and one more line of defense to help protect your stuff.
