#1820: AutoVault

If you are transporting valuables, leaving your vehicle unattended can cause a degree of nervousness.

Today’s invention may help. It consists of a safe carried within one’s vehicle. Just as you are about to stop, the strongbox slides automatically through the floor, via a set of vertical guiderails, onto the road below.

A slight forward-facing slope on the box lid acts as a ramp, so that the vehicle (assumed rear-wheel drive) rides up onto the lid a little and locks in position.

This seals the box, makes it very hard to reach and also reduces the chance that the vehicle can be driven away.

On returning to your vehicle, the process reverses and the safe is withdrawn into the car body.
