Hide Your Valuables In Plain Sight! Experts say that a burglar will spend about 8 minutes in your home. He's in a hurry and will grab the most obvious valuable items. He ain't that bright and follows the course of least resistance. That's why Diversion Safes work so well. Sure the idiots who break into your house may know that Diversion Safes exist, but they are scared, rushed and just want to get in, grab what they can and get out. Hiding valuables in diversion safes make perfect sense.
