Introduction: Electric Outlet Secret Compartment
This project is fun to do and it makes use of dead electrical boxes. The only thing you need is a screw driver in most cases.
Step 1: Find a Dead Outlet
I had this tv cable outlet behind some furniture and I decided to use it for this project. Be careful and make sure if you are using a electric out let and you are unwiring it that you make sure the breaker is off or its dead/ not in use.
Step 2: Unscrew the Cover
Unscrew the cover and take a look at the situation.
Step 3: Deal With the Wires
I had just the one wire so I just pushed it into the hole in the back of the receptacle
Step 4: Adding Back the Cover and Making It Hinge
The easiest way to do this is to take out one screw and leave one partially backed out to act as a hinge.
Step 5: And Your Done!
I had a lot of fun going around my house and finding outlets and you will too. What would you put in your new secret compartment, tell me in the comments.
