Nowadays protecting your valuables can be challenging especially when you're on the go, That's why I decided to make a little secret compartment inside my car. Only you'll know it's there because nobody would be able to find it, not only that but you'll have easy access to it. It's fairly cheap and the total cost was under $5.00. Let me show you how to make it. For video tutorial click here!!!
Materials/Tools you'll need:Ice Breakers Mints ContainerMouse PadDouble sided tape or gueScissorsMarker
Step 1: Creating The Secret Compartment
The results may vary from car to car but for the most part it should work on any car that has a cup holder in between both front seats. For this instructable I'll be using a 5th Gen Camaro.
Most cup holder have rubber coasters inside, if your car doesn't come with them you can easily make one using a mouse pad.Get the measurements of the circumference of the cup holderDraw a circle outline on the mouse padCut out the circleEmpty out the Ice Breakers ContainerPlace 2 pieces of double sided tape on topPut your valuables inside such as money or keysLay down the mouse pad circle on top of the container, make sure it centered perfectly.
Now that you secret compartment is ready, simple put it inside the cup holder, should be a snug fit which is perfect for this.
Step 2: Safely Storing Your Valuables
Once you have your new secret compartment inside your cup holder, you can have a little piece of mind knowing your money or SD cards are safely tucked away.
The Ice Breakers Containers is the perfect size for this project because it doesn't take up a lot of room so you are still able to use your cup holder normally.
You can easily grab something you have stored inside such as money by opening the flap/lid. It's very flexible and once you get what you need simply snap it shut again.
