How To Install A Secret Passageway In Your House

The practical applications of owning a secret passageway in your house are endless. An intruder breaks in? Just disappear behind your false bookshelf wall and call the cops. Neighbors stopping by to see if you'll watch a slideshow of their recent trip to Oklahoma? It's like you're not even home. Not to mention, you'd dominate just about every game of hide and seek. 

And now here to turn all of these scenarios into reality is this Hidden Door Hinge System, serving up clandestine architecture at its finest.

To get one of these, you'll need a giant bookcase, obviously.

First attach a series of specialized, double-swing hinges, then take one panel of shelving and turn it into a door that leads to your secret lair. The hinges can hold up to 250 pounds, and their design will make them essentially invisible to the unsuspecting eye. 

This kit allows for serious customization. Fit a bookshelf into a previously existing doorframe, or construct an entire wall of floor-to-ceiling shelves to create a completely new room.

Happy hiding, y'all.
