Most burglars spend less than six minutes inside a victim's home and only have time to check the most obvious places for valuables. This unique "safe" allows you to hide your valuables discreetly inside what looks just like a surge protector- the last plaplace a thief would think to look. Please note that this is not a real surge protector. Although this is not a working surge protector, it has an on/ off switch which glows red. You can plug up to six cords into the surge protector and then plug it into a wall outlet (no danger- no electrical current will enter the unit) in order to add to the realism. The safe compartment measures 6 inches x 2 inches by three-quarter inches. Two AA batteries included. Covered under a 90 day warranty.
