I know this is the type of question a lot of you have asked about how to secure your router box. This is a question I get asked all the time. You have to trust me when I say there are no real hard and fast rules to follow when you want to hide your router box. The only rule of thumb I have come up with is to get creative.
While you may feel like you have to lock up your router box, you probably don’t. You can’t really do it right away, especially if you don’t have a lot of time or money, but there are a few things you can do to make your router box more difficult to take apart.
First of all, you should make it a bit harder to take apart. Put a screwdriver or screwdriver bits in it, put a couple of zip ties on it, and you should be good to go. You may not be able to make it completely impossible for someone to take it apart, but it will be a bit harder to do.
You have to be careful with zip ties when you’re doing this. The zip ties are stronger than the screwdrivers, so when you zip tie something you can easily rip it all open. If you are worried about the risk, use zip ties when you’re working with something that is not very strong.
Once you’ve put your screwdriver in the router box, you will start seeing the router lights come on. This is because you’re going to have to open the box up to access the router. The light will come on because the router is on the inside of the box, so if you pull the plug on the router you will start to see that light come on.
Zip ties can be tough to get right, but I love this one from the Hometapes website. The tutorial I found was a bit confusing, but overall I think it was fairly easy to do. Of course, any DIY tutorial is always a bit confusing, but I also liked the tutorial I found about how to use screws to hold the router box in place. This worked well, and I managed to get the box to stay put pretty easily.
I found this one quite easy to do, but I think I would have been a bit happier with the instructions from the Hometapes website. It may be a bit more difficult to get the screws in and out the right way, but I think they do an excellent job of explaining how to use them.
What I really liked is how the Hometapes description for how to use screws to hold the router box in place is so clear. The screws are simply used to fix the router box in place. I think I would have liked to have been able to tell you how to use the screws, but it’s easy enough to figure out.
The router box is a fairly common one that I’ve seen in many homes. It is used because it is a very easy place to keep important stuff. It is also used for just about everything. Even though the Hometapes website gives detailed directions for how to use the screws in this router box, I found it easier to just know the basics by reading the directions for the router box from the Hometapes website.
I know this is a little bit of a nitpick, but I really wish the router box was labeled for the type of screws that are used and not for the type of rubber that is used. That would make finding it more simple. I’m sure the same thing goes for the hinge and the hinges, but that is yet another thing that would help the user understand how to use the router box. Hopefully it will be fixed in a future update.
