There are several rules that should always be adhered to when frolicking on the beach or lounging by the pool: never wear socks with sandals, never tie a hankie round your head and never leave your valuables on show. No, not those valuables; we’re talking about credit cards, keys and mobile phones. That’s why you need TanSafe.
As you can see this clever receptacle looks just like a regular bottle of suntan lotion. Simply pop off its watertight lid, bung in your bits and relax, safe in the knowledge thieves will be unlikely to want to slather on the SPF25 after a hard day’s pilferage. Clever, eh!
Large enough to conceal iPhones and BlackBerries, the TanSafe is set to become an essential travelling companion for canny sunbathers everywhere. And seeing as the cremated lobster look is seriously last century, nobody will bat an eyelid at your additional bottle of sunscreen. Valuable beach protection? Absolutely!
Works as a stealth safe
Looks like an ordinary suntan lotion but secretly holds valuables
Contains enough space to hold most mobile phones/iPhone, credit cards, keys and cash
Fooled Security at Manchester Airport! Told me that I couldn't take it in my hand luggage as it was more than the permitted liquid qty. When I showed the officer what it was he was well impressed. Not massive but big enough to hold a cash stash, copy of tickets and passport page (on folded A4). Recommended. Grasshopper, Preston - 21st December 2013
Can I take this on a plane in my hand luggage? Katie, Leeds - 10th May 2013
Firebox says: Hey Katie, as it doesn't contain any liquids it should be absolutely fine.
When can we see a new one of these to fit samsung galaxy s3??? Stevie, Whitburn - 19th July 2012
Firebox says: Hey Stevie, no plans at the moment I'm afraid but keep your eyes peeled!
I bought this and in general I'm happy with it. The width could be a bit more generous though. My iphone 3GS does not fit in it unless I remove the cover. Most people use covers for their phones and the manufacturers should have taken that into account.
The second problem is that it is very slim and the bottom does not seem to be completely flat so it does not stand up well unless on a completely flat surface. It's fine to leave on its side though.
My chief concern with this product was that potential thieves might recognise the brand name. I removed the Tan Safe label and replaced it with one from an actual brand of suncream - Garnier. Problem solved! ;). Ellie, UK - 14th April 2012
I can see this is waterproof, but would it hold liquid inside with out leaking? this would be an great way to smuggle booze in to a venue!! Just don't tell anyone.... Sarah, Leeds - 1st August 2011
What if a thief sees one down the beach recognises the artwork then takes it all. Alex, Jersey - 21st April 2011
