Problem solving storage space in a safe or elsewhere

Recommended Posts

I had to many loose metal items in the safe and really no room I happened on some neodymium / powerful magnets only 1/2X1/2 and 1/8th inch thick stuck against the back wall inside top or sides of your safe any metal object will remain stuck to it until you pull it off. So there is no need to waste shelf space and they stay stuck to the wall and not the item larger stronger can hold a rod place them and spray glue a thin sheet of leather so it will not scratch and you can put them any where as long as it is against metal inside the doors walls behind the lip of the door on the outside even.

I was considering getting a piece of 1/4 inch plywood arrange the magnets behind use some liquid nails and stick it to the wall a few screws to hold it and have an invisible magnetic tool holder under the desk some of these can hold many pounds easily the tiny ones I have can hold 8 pounds no common mag loaded weights 8 pounds except drums  and a few could hold that.

just a thought.

Great catch TPSnodgrass a second safe doubles your chances of keeping some of your stuff in case of a break in.

There are so many tricks that I would love to share but once they are out there everyone know.

Magnets are superfantastic items and can hold hundreds of pounds then there are magnetic locks that can be scrounged from old vehicles that operate on 12 volt.  source a bit of work you can shorten drawers and pace in a false back so even if the drawer is pulled out looking back there is nothing to be seen. certain lamps whos base is substantial enough magnets can hold an object in no matter if it is tossed as long as the material it is made of is not breakable, and even that can be addressed. Trash cans are another good object to modify drapes etc.

The size of what you may want to "store" is the only parameter from TP roller to adapted furniture. Of course there are all manner of cans bottles and other items that can be bought that are caches for items candles are a hoot and who the hell steals candles.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
