Diversion Safes and Caches
Diversion safes for emergency preparedness supplies

Every prepper deserves a secret cache to store emergency
preparedness supplies. Whether home made or store bought,
preppers must be sneaky to hide their preps, and a diversion
safe or cache provides the answer.  Below you'll find 15+ ideas
for secret compartments that preppers use to hide their
ammunition, weapons, food, water and supplies.

Diversion Safes for Preppers

Diversion Safe Method #1 (Chapstick container).
Make your own "mini" safe by removing the Chapstick or other
lip balm and replacing the contents with dollar bills. Dollars
won't really be worth anything when SHTF, but it works well to
illustrate the simplicity of the concept. Just replace the
contents of a real item with what you're trying to hide. Unless
your thief's lips are extremely parched, you won't find this item
to be of much value to a thief in a world without rule of law.

Use a deodorant container to stash cash, silver or gold.

Diversion Safe Method #3: Product cans.
  • Garage supply diversion safe (WD-40 can safe).
    Pictured right, the WD-40 safe is a commercially available
    product that could be easily overlooked in the garage,
    making it an ideal diversion safe.

  • Shaving Cream (Barbasol can safe). Pictured immediate
    right, a Barbasol can safe is an ideal prepper solution to
    stash gold and silver. Ideal for preppers because it's not a
    food item! Best of all, it's made from the genuine item: a
    real Barbasol can!

  • Ajax with bleach safe. Pictured immediate right, is
    another wonderful place to stash small items, particularly
    gold and it could easily be overlooked by zombies stashed
    in your bathroom or under the kitchen sink. You may like to
    stash water purification tablets or even a pocket knife.

Diversion Safe Method #4: Wall clock diversion safe.
The sleek silver wall clock matches any décor in your home and
although this may look like an ordinary clock it has a secret
hidden compartment where you can hide your valuables. With a
simple hinged design it is the perfect hiding place for jewelry,
cash or gold and silver.

Diversion Safe Method #5: Book diversion safe.
Because it locks, the book safe, pictured at the top of the page
is a hidden safe ideal for use as cash box or gun safe. It would
hide easily in your bookshelf or library.

Diversion Safe Method #6:  Hanging closet diversion
safe.
 
US Patrol Hanging Closet Safe, pictured at the top of the page,
looks like a tank top, but hides valuables to foils thieves!
Contains clear zippered pockets, large and small. It's made of
cotton, it looks and feels like the real thing. Hang it in a closet
layered under a shirt. Venture out with peace of mind!

Diversion Safe Method #7: Curio Gun Safe.
Pictured at the bottom right of the page, the gun safe looks like
a curio on the outside, but inside you can pack your firearms for
security. Other options to deter, defend and delay your property
include and the under desk holster or gun magnet.

Diversion Safe # 8: Compact  Disk Safe.
Easily hide silver coins in a CD by the computer or as a DVD by
the media cabinet. Sneaky and safe! Just use the jewel case of
a computer program or a music CD that you no longer use and
slide in your valuables along with he real thing. No one will ever
sort through your collection expecting to find gold.

Diversion Safe #9: Moving Boxes.
Place emergency food reserves in cardboard moving boxes. Use
a Sharpie marking pen to write "Grandma's Country dishes," add
a few clanking pieces on top, then seal the box with packing
tape and stash away in the garage or attic.

Diversion Safe Method #10: Door Frames.
Stashing food inside the plywood of doors is another popular
prepper practice. It's a bit tricky plying the wood apart and you
may splinter the wood in the process or need to repaint it, but
the comforts of knowing your food or ammunition is safely
tucked inside should be comforting.

Diversion Safe Method #11: Beds.
How good you'll feel at night when you know you're sleeping on
food. It's easy enough to stash canned goods underneath a bed
and hammer a few nails to seal foods for storage underneath to
make the drawers of a captain's bed look like a facade. Another
idea is to use food grade buckets stashed with preps as bed
posts.

  • NOTE FOR FOOD STASH: Avoid storing too many canned
    goods, which may have a short expiration date, unless you
    can easily access the supplies and have a good inventory
    rotation system. Pack instead freeze dried foods, which
    have a 25-year shelf life. Likewise, bottled water may
    break down and leak to cause mold or otherwise damage;
    avoid bottled water under there.

Diversion Safe Method #12: PVC Pipe.
PVC Pipe is a prepper favorite to make a survival cache. While
it's tempting to hid your survival cache on the property, it's best
to bury a survival cache off your property if it contains firearms
you will need to defend your property.

Diversion Safe Method #13: Air ducts.
Remove air vents and you may find a discreet nook for a
firearm. Just make sure the item doesn't restrict air flow.

Diversion Safe Method #14: Crevices.
Clever places abound in your home and you know where they
are! You may find crevices hidden from sight in furniture.

Diversion Safe Method #15: Geo cache.
Pictured right you'll find the Cache Pack has a great variety of
sneaky caches, and includes: a fake bolt, fake utility plate, fake
sprinkler, fake rock.

Diversion Safe Method #16: Bear safe
If your bugout location is in bear country, a bear canister,
pictured right is a must own cache.

Diversion Safe Method #17: Dirty Briefs.
No one's going to check the specially marked briefs, stained to
look real. Pictured at the top left of the page, the Diversion
Brief Safe has 4" x 10" hidden compartment

Preppers and survivalists will find many other diversionary
tactics. The goal for survival is to deter, delay and defend.
Diversion safes help provide the "deter" and "delay" portions of
survival.

Diversion safes to avoid
There are some diversion safes that a prepper should avoid,
and these will give you an idea of what not to buy. They exist
and you should not buy them:

  • Avoid drink diversion safes. No doubt a thief would, in a
    world without rule of law, savor a Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper,
    Arizona or other beverage container. And no doubt would
    be pleasantly surprised to find your gold or silver coins for
    barter.


  • Avoid Pringles diversion safes. Obviously it's food and
    will be wanted.

  • Avoid candle diversion safes. While ordinarily this
    unusual safe would be a great place to hide valuables, in
    times of extreme crisis, a candle would be very valuable!


In short, when selecting a diversion safe, you'll want to steer
clear from any safes which resembles foods or water! As during
a crisis food and water will be more valuable than gold. The
diversion safes on this page are not food or water related. They
may go undetected, so even if your home gets raided by gangs
when SHTF, you will have some resource to barter and fall back
on.

Happy endings...
Even if they call you crazy, keep on prepping and prepare to live
happily ever after! Stash your stuff and survive.
