Beach Vault is cylindrical plastic container that let's you stash your stuff underground and out of sight. Large enough to store objects such as tablets and Kindles, Beach Vault is a sealable, watertight capsule that is screwed into the sand under the custom-made towel. A flap designed to hold a pillow conceals a hole that fits around the mouth of the capsule, intended to give easy access to your items.
A little discretion can do a lot for one's peace of mind at the beach, a classic hunting ground for petty thieves. It must be said, however, that a closed plastic container won't do much to stop such opportunists if they think they've scoped out an unguarded jackpot. If you're after a more high-tech security option, the motion-sensitive, combination locked Yelpie portable safe may be worth a look.
