View Full Version : Need a small safe/lockbox.

03-13-2017, 02:26 AM
I am looking for a small safe or lock box that will fit in the 'radio' space in the overhead console. I haven't found much in internet searches. Has anyone here found anything that will fit in a standard radio 'hole'?
I know I can get all kinds of other safes and probably will have a larger under seat unit, but I want to use that 'accessible' space in the front.

Easily accessible?

A diaper pail with appropriately doctored/poopie looking disposable baby diapers over a false bottom storage space. Better yet use Depends, almost 100% guaranteed not to be molested.

P.S. - My theory is that anything that looks like a safe will attract attention and generate interest in what might be within.

I don't think a diaper pail will fit in that radio space overhead in the console. (Grin)

A soiled Depends will. :rolleyes:

I'd look at small pistol safes, nightstand type. They are fairly compact

One of the little pistol safes may work. I need to measure the space available and then get my hands on a safe in a store somewhere.
Thanks for the ideas. I was hoping to find a box that is made to fit the radio space, which is a standard I think. That would be perfect.

What about a blank plate cover modified to open easily. Like it was pointed out above, If it looks like a safe they will find a way to take the whole thing but if it is a blank cover they won't give it a second look.
