* Air vents make excellent hiding places - Thieves don't have time to unscrew the grid when inspecting your home ...

* Before, all houses had a secured safe under a stair step. You can do the same by installing piano hinges inside the step.

* Do you have flower pots? Hide money, a USB key or jewelry in a pill jar and insert it into the ground. Nobody will suspect anything!

* When installing small wooden rods inside a drawer, make a false bottom like this one. Store your valuables in the drawer and place the false bottom on the rods.

* Several refrigerators and dishwashers have a removable grill that can be a pefect hiding place ... Make good use of it!
