Hello, my name is Trevor from Mutbak. In this video I am going to show you how to take a normal wallet and turn it into a RFID blocking wallet. So right here we have the Viosi wallet, it is a front pocket wallet and in this hand I have the Mutbak Bunker wallet the Bunker has Mutbak’s Pocket Firewall technology which prevents the card from transmitting anywhere around it.
The goal is to take the Viosi wallet and make it just as capable (for the most part) as the Bunker. Alright, these are our tools. This is the Vivotech Vivopay this is our NFC sensor and will tell us whether or not we created a DIY RFID blocking wallet. A piece of aluminum foil, super glue, Sharpie, scissors and a ruler.
Let’s get started. Let’s test the card to verify that it is an RFID enabled credit card. We are good there. Let’s test the wallet to verify that it does not block any signals. We can put the card in any pocket and the Vivopay detects it. We can turn it around and it detects it, we can put it in the top pocket and detects.
Now let’s put the same card in the Mutbak Bunker Front Pocket wallet. Again you can use any pocket, we will do the front pocket first and you can see we don’t get any signal anywhere from the wallet. We can do the next pocket. We can do the top pocket. The reason I scan it in between is so that you can verify that the scanner is working. This isn’t some kind of trick. We can put it in the last pocket either way. Just stuff it in there.
I hope you are convinced that the Bunker blocks RFID signals while the Viosi does not.
Alright let’s get started. First thing is I am going to take the Aluminum foil and measure out a cards width worth of it. Then I will take the ruler and draw a line down it. This is normal Aluminum foil, nothing special. The cheap stuff from the Grocery store. I will cut it now that we have the right size. It does not matter if the shiny part is out or the flat side.
I am going to wrap my card up in it and what I am trying to do is measure out enough for a little pocket. I will take a tiny bit extra than the height of the card about there. Then we will make another cut.
Next we want to take the Aluminum foil and stuff it in the pocket there. Aluminum foil will rip so you want to be really careful when stuffing it in there. use the card as much as you can to guide the foil into the pocket. Once you have it positioned you can test it. It does not scan. Pull the card out and we can retest the card.
Now we have the pocket lined with aluminum foil and we line the edge of the foil with superglue to make it stick to the sides of the wallet to prevent the foil from scrunching up when we put the card in.
There we go, now you just have to wait until the glue dries. It looks good. That is it, the pocket will now block RFID signals.
The advantages of doing it this way:
• Fast, we did in a few minutes
• You can modify any wallet you own. If you have a wallet you love, you can modify it to block RFID without having to buy a new one.
• Best part is that it works
You will need to be careful when putting the card in to make sure you don’t rip the tin foil.
That is how you can make a DIY RFID blocking wallet.

In the next video I am going to cut apart these wallets to see what is on the inside, what they are made of and to give you an idea of the quality of the wallets. Make sure you check that one out.
