Melbourne: A new plastic vault has been developed that can be screwed into the sand to hide personal items like purses, keys and money in the beach.

The Beach Vault, which has been developed by entrepreneur Marcal DaCunha, has a waterproof lid to keep out any liquids and then covered by a towel and pillowcase, reported.

DaCunha, who is a pastor from New Jersey, has admitted that the capsule isn't thief-proof, but the belongings will be safer undergroud than out in the open.

The vault, which is expected to be retailed for 33 dollars, was designed by DaCunha and his, and they have developed a functional prototype and are now trying to raise money on Kickstarter to manufacture the Beach Vault.
