    Default Amazing DIY secret door hack

    Hey folks,

    Just found this very cool secret door hack.

    I´m sure some of you preppers may find a good use for it. The same techniques can be used to build an internal door leading to a safe room or something like that.

    Here´s the video:

    original article: http://www.core77.com/blog/object_cu...hack_24264.asp

    Materials used:

    - Standard fiberglass exterior door.

    - Red cedar (won't rot, but lighter than pressure treated). Three 2x4s, ripped to 3" to form a frame to offset the siding, mounted to the door using 3" lag screws and fender washers (fender washers used to prevent the bolts from tearing through the fiberglass door).

    - HardiPlank siding.

    - Morning Industry Keypad and Remote Deadbolt.

    - Ball Catch (holds the door shut without needing a turn-able doorknob).

    - Richelieu 1-1/2-in x 1-1/2-in Satin Nickel Surface Cabinet Hinge (two).

    - Hose bib (used as as the exterior door handle... no working plumbing connected).

    - Interior doorknob is a dummy knob (used for pulling the door open but doesn't actually latch).

    Very cool, right?
