Conceal and Protect your Property
Conceal and Protect your Property

Hi, I’m Grant Thompson. A lot of people know me as "The King of Random" (www.youtube.com/thekingofrandom). I make weekly youtube videos dedicated to exploring life though all kinds of life hacks, experiments, and random weekend projects.

I recently designed The Stealth Shelf (https://youtu.be/1yvZbX_0lPw), a concealment shelf device with a hidden compartment, only unlockable by special objects positioned in a secret location. Only you know how to unlock your valuable goods, quickly and easily without keys or combination locks.

I typically teach people how to "do it yourself", but I’m constantly asked to release project kits to make it easier, for those who don’t have all the tools, or just don’t have time to shop for the parts.

I’m excited about the Stealth Shelf because concealment is an important part of safety and security in my home. Whether I use it to keep my wallet, keys, passport, and other private articles safely hidden, or as an essential part of my home security and defense system, or even just to hide my kids’ devices when they need a break... The Stealth Shelf has become indispensable to me. 

The Stealth Shelf has no keys to lose, no combination lock, just a quick easy magnetic locking system that opens in one second. Just slide one or two ornaments to their secret locations, and the shelf opens right when you need it.

When you become a backer, you’ll choose from our magnetic key ornament options, or just choose the high power magnets themselves, and embed them in your favorite objects or knick-knacks. No one will ever imagine you’ve turned your household decorations into secret unlocking mechanisms.

 

The Stealth Shelf comes with options to ensure that it fits your individual taste. With three color options, two wood styles, and three shelf packages to choose from:

  • The Stealth Shelf "Kit": Ready-to-Assemble Pre-drilled pieces.
  • The Stealth Shelf "Assembled": Fully built, stained, and ready to install!
  • The Stealth Shelf "Elite": Includes all the Bells and whistles I use in my own Stealth Shelves at home!

The kits are for those of you who like to Do It Yourself! Kits will include everything you need to assemble the Stealth Shelf yourself (other than a hammer and screwdriver). 

  • Pieces come separate, ready to be screwed and hammered together.
  • Includes one Magnetic Lock System. Learn the inner workings of the magnetic-locking shelf mechanisms by building it yourself. 
  • The wood comes unstained - so paint or stain it any color you want, or just keep the natural wood texture.
  • You’ll have your choice of style: classic style with ornamental edging, or modern style with a sleek and simple design.

 

This is everything you find in the kit - but fully assembled by our professional team. In this kit, you will have:

  • One Magnet Lock System
  • Choose from 3 color options: unstained, Light stain, or Dark Stain.
  • Choose wood style: Modern or Classic.

The Elite Stealth Shelf has everything included with the Stealth Shelf Assembled, with all the options for stain and style, but also comes with all the bells and whistles. It has:

  • A Double Magnetic Locking System - twice as secure!
  • Rhino plating finished interior
  • Tactical LED light for night situations (motion-activated, so your shelf lights up automatically when you open it!)
  • Embedded magnets for locking your metallic possessions in place where you need them.

 

The pre-assembled shelves come in 3 stain options: 

Unfinished Natural Wood

Light Stain

Dark Stain

The Stealth Shelf works without keys. The secret to unlocking is encased in the objects sitting on top of the shelf. These objects have powerful magnets inside that trigger the locks to open. 

You'll choose between three options for your ornamental Stealth Shelf Keys:

  • The Candle: A simple vanilla scented candle with an embedded magnet, inconspicuous and makes the room smell nice :)
  • The Chess Piece: A "King" of Random wooden chess piece that fits the stain of the shelf perfectly, with a magnet secretly embedded in the base. No one will know it's the hidden key.
  • Just Plain Magnets: Do it Yourself, King of Random style! We'll just send you the high-power magnet, you can embed it in any knick-knack or object you want to decorate your shelf with. Use something that's already in your home, no one will ever suspect you've converted it into a secret shelf-unlocking key! 

Objects will be chosen in a survey sent to you just before the Stealth Shelf ships out to you, along with confirming your correct current shipping address.

If you’re one of our younger viewers, make sure you tell your mom or dad about the Stealth Shelf, and order the kit version so you can build it yourself and learn as you make it.

Whoever you are, I know the Stealth Shelf is going to change your life, and become a favorite feature of your home or workplace. 

Risks and challenges

We're in the process of testing production teams, and playing with small tweaks to the designs so final products may vary slightly from what's featured. Watch for updates as we get closer to final funding.

In the mean-time, here's "How To Make the Stealth Shelf" yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch…

Disclaimer: TKOR LLC neither assumes nor accepts any liability for items stored inside the concealment shelf. With your purchase, the buyer confirms reading and understanding the following warnings; the buyer agrees that he/she is responsible for firearm safety. If you use your concealment furniture to conceal firearms when you place your firearms in or take them out do not use the trigger guard in this process.

The "Stealth Shelf" is not fire proof, nor a safe, and is not designed to replace safes. It's intended to allow quick access to your personal valuables, while concealing them in arms reach. We strongly encourage you to keep the secret concealment storage confidential. Do not show children or others the hidden area inside, or how to unlock the shelf.
