A diversion safe can be a safe that is hiding in plain sight. It looks so much like something other than a safe, that a burglar or intruder will not think twice about checking it out for valuables.
A diversion safe should never take the place of a real safe for your ultimate valuables, because most diversion safe’s are not in themselves very secure, and most are not fireproof, compared to the real thing. However they do provide an alternative for hiding things in your home, and they are very effective as ‘hiding in plain sight’.
Many of them are pretty inexpensive and it may be worth it for you to pick up one, or a few, for things like hiding keys, extra cash, jewelry, coins, etc…
