According to the Hidden Safes website, there are over a trillion air vents in the US alone. So if you were to install one of these fake air vent secret compartments in your home, a cat burglar visiting the US would have a one in a trillion chance of finding the one that contains your valuables. Installation is as easy as cutting out a section of drywall, inserting the secret compartment which is only a few inches deep and securing it in place with 4 screws. The front of the vent opens with a fastener that is hidden in the louvers and also features a black divider so your valuables aren’t visible when it’s closed.
Of course if said cat burglar happens to pick your home, and this vent doesn’t perfectly match the ones already installed, there’s a good chance they’re going to find it. And since it’s only secured with 4 screws, forcefully removing it from the wall probably isn’t that difficult. But if you’re willing to risk it, you can order one from Hidden Safes for $259.95.
