Step 1: Locate a Power Outlet
Step 2: Unscrew the Outlet
Step 3: You Will See an Empty Space
Step 4: Find Any Item You Want to Put in the Space
Step 5: (Optional)
You can use a door hinge by drilling holes in your wall next to the outlet. It takes extra work, but you can access your item quicker. To secure it, put nails in the hole to hold it.
Step 6: Put Your Item in the Hole
You dont want it to hang out of the outlet like this.
Step 7: Secure the Item
My item is pretty well concealed and is not as noticeable.
Step 8: Put Your Cover Back On
This item fits very well, so now we want to put the cover on. It is the same as taking it off just backwards. Put the cover on and the hold a nail in its place. With your free hand, use a screwdriver to drive it in. Repeat this process until every screw is back in.
Step 9: Your Cover Should Be Back On
If you are not sure, lightly pull it with your hand. It should look like this picture.
Step 10: Your Are Now Finished
Your secret compartment is complete.
