Spinsafe — The Outdoor-Vault

The Outdoor-Vault

Spinsafe protects your valuables safely from occasional theft at the lake, the open-air swimming pool, while surfing or at the festival campsite.

We want you to have #oneworryless next summer.


We're working to make sure you won't have to worry about getting your valuables stolen at leisure activities out on the lawn. Whether at the swimming lake, in the park or at the festival: our outdoor vault reliably protects your mobile phone, money and keys from occasional theft. The protection is rounded off by our alarm protection app supplied. If the smartphone is in the safe, the app registers when someone tampers with it using the accelerometer. If there is an attempt to steal, the smartphone warns you and other people around with a shrill alarm.

Spinsafe in use


Features


Rainproof

Spinsafe protects your mobile phone and valuables from rain and splashing water.

Light and portable

Spinsafe weighs less than 500g and can be easily stowed in the backpack or attached to it with a carabiner.

Secure theft protection

Spinsafe creates a firm connection to the ground because of the specially designed screw for gras areas. The safe cannot easily be removed due to missing points of action. Your valuables are safe from casual theft.

Affordable

Spinsafe will cost significantly less than 100 € including the alarm app and a combination lock and can protect all your valuables.

Attachment of other objects

A steel cable lock can be pulled through the upper eyelet to attach your bike or a backpack. You can even leash your dog on it.

Secure your valuables at festivals

With Spinsafe you no longer have to leave your valuables unprotected in the tent. Simply screw your Spinsafe in the soil in front of your tent and your valuables are safe.

Even safer with our app

If your smartphone is in the safe, our app will notice if someone is trying to reach for it using the accelerometer/GPS and warns you.

Leaves no trace

After unscrewing, the hole caused by Spinsafe can be closed by two footsteps.

Made in Germany

The Spinsafe is developed, manufactured and assembled in Germany.

Made of recycled material

For the bottom screw we use recycled plastic. This is in no way inferior to new plastic and protects the environment. We also ensure a high level of recycled material in packaging.

I am Gero Kraus, 26 years old and I come from the beautiful Bavaria. Last year I completed my master's degree in computer science in Leipzig. I recently moved to Brunswick to work full-time with Dennis on the Spinsafe. In my spare time I play basketball, ride my mountain bike and also like to surf. The latter, by the way, I won't be doing without our Spinsafe again in the future. Dennis and I are giving everything, so you can do the same too soon. We met in 2011 in the Yukon (Canada) as work colleagues and have been best buddys since then. Now I am happy - as a fresh digital native - to be able to help him to market the idea of the Spinsafe online. If you have any questions or suggestions about our future crowdfunding campaign, our website or our presence in the social media, please feel free to send me an e-mail.

Frequently asked questions

Does the Spinsafe do harm to the lawn?

Spinsafe leaves only a small hole, which can be closed by a few footsteps. The lawn does not suffer any damage.

When can I buy the Spinsafe?

We plan to deliver the Spinsafe at the beginning of the bathing and festival season 2019. However, a crowdfunding campaign is already taking place this summer. If you want to be one of the first to receive a Spinsafe, support us with it.

Can't the Spinsafe be loosened by shaking so it can be pulled out of the ground?

During tests with non-optimised reference products we did not even manage to shake the screw in the ground. A thief tries to stay inconspicuous and prefers to find easy targets. But if he really is out for it, our app comes into play. This will alert you and other people around utilizing a loud alarm.

Is Spinsafe also suitable for sandy beaches?

The current screw is not designed for sandy beaches. With market acceptance, however, we would like to develop an appropriately designed screw for this application.

Is Spinsafe really waterproof?

The Spinsafe is splashwater proof and keeps your mobile phone and valuables dry even in the rain.

How does the app work?

You can start the app by placing your mobile phone in the Spinsafe. This uses sensor data from the mobile phone to detect violent force against the Spinsafe. When it is registered, and thus when a potential theft attempt is detected, a shrill alarm is triggered via the smartphone's speakers. Depending on the settings of the app, the vibration alarm can also be triggered to make carrying the safe even more conspicuous.
