Safe Bedside Table Great For Peace Of Mind And Occasional Overnight Beatings

Safe Bedside Table (Images courtesy James McAdam)
By Andrew Liszewski

While an alarm system will let you know if someone has broken into your home it won’t do much to stop a determined intruder once they’re inside. So instead of sleeping with a gun under the pillow try this Safe Bedside Table instead. When not in use it looks like a normal bedside table with modern design stylings but in the middle of the night if you think there might be an intruder the table turns into a club and shield giving you somewhat of a fighting chance.

Designed by James McAdam the Safe Bedside Table was created in response to a report that 50% of people in London were worried about security and kept some sort of self-defense close by while they slept. And while the table isn’t available for sale anyone with a lathe, bandsaw and basic carpentry skills could probably just build their own.

    What? Have they outlawed cricket bats over there too?

  2. Froot Loop says:

    For some reason, this reminds me of the Leg Lamp from ‘A Christmas Story’.

  3. Dustycornflakes says:

    This would do great unless your intruder was packin’ heat…;o) Maybe you could add a nice blowgun attachment too! That way you could nail him BEFORE he nailed you…:o) The whacking could then commence with a tad more peace of mind.

  4. Calligaris says:

    The base of the table should be some sort of spiked slippers.

    Yeah, but you know your glass of water with your dentures in it and your digital alarm clock and your tub of anal lube will go flying if you ever have to use it.

    when I blogged this on August 11th I didn’t think much of it, but now our post http://www.katize.com/2007/08/11/sleep-tight-with-the-safe-bedside-table/ has had over 120.000 views and just got its 114th comment. Controversial discussions between Americans and Brits.. I still like the table πŸ™‚

  11. Devin says:

    this would work better as a zombie repellent but the bat would be a gun!…but the table as a shield still works!..awesome

  12. Xstamper says:

    That is dope! I want one!

  13. Fred says:

    Why not sleep with a firearm under your pillow? I do. Doesn’t bother me a bit. I’m not the princess and the pea.

    Liberty is refreshing.

    Silly Limeys, a 12 gauge pump action shotgun is much more effective in warding off the maurading psychos. This will become painfully obvious to you when Britanistan is forced to kneel towards Mecca. Then again you may enjoy shari’a after all.

  15. mike says:

  16. PRICE says:

    PRICE??!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?1111/??!!?!?

    I wondered about its bullet-stopping capabilities, like Rhine Stone asked.
    If I were to build one and wanted it to be bullet-proof, I would consider getting a circle of ballistic shielding material and wrap it with wood veneer so it'll look like its made of wood, then go from there.

  24. Joe Mark says:

    that's what you get for watching too much gladiator movie.

  25. Noodles says:

    Spy sappin' mah table!

  26. Nga Pham says:

    ha I'd like to see the entire line of self defense furnishings.

  27. Does it come in black lacquer finish?

  28. grogsmith says:

    To defend my home, I have a spike strip under my door mat; a shot gun under my bed; a knife in every room; a baseball bat with 4, 6 inch nails coming out of it; a trip wire, airsoft claymore; a fake but very affective RPG and a homemade flamethrower. πŸ˜€ So tbh I don’t really need this silly piece of tree.
