If You See These in a Public Restroom, Call the Police
These hooks may look innocent, but unfortunately, they aren't. These hooks have hidden cameras inside of them.
If you see a hook like this in a public bathroom, hotel, dressing room, etc. you should leave and call the police. The big thing to look out for with these hooks is the tiny little hole at the top. That's the camera.
These cameras are operated wirelessly and, according to Twenty Two Words, "can be recorded remotely, and the wireless remote control works through walls." A few years ago these hooks with hidden cameras were found in a Florida Keys bathroom.
The hooks are really easy for someone to get their hands on, too. One search for "hooks hidden camera" on Amazon and a bunch pop right up. Yuck, I can't believe this is something that actually happens.
The big thing to look out for, other than the suspicious-looking hole at the top, is if the hook is placed in an odd spot. If it's in a spot that doesn't seem normal for a hook, be on alert.
Hang out with Carly Ross on 106.9 KROC weekdays 9am-noon!
