outletsafe.jpgSometimes hiding things in plain sight can be better than placing it in a thick safe. Place your precious jewelry into this fake wall outlet and thieves will never find it. There’s also a lock mechanism to keep the outlet from falling out willy-nilly.

The only problem with this is the ground hole on the outlet is on the top instead of on the bottom, which makes the burglar’s game of « which one is different from the rest » quite easy.

Update: Reader Chad tells us the invertedness may be intentional:

I just started to do some house hunting and notice this in the newer houses. The ground on top is to represent a outlet controlled by a light switch.
