You might try to get a HELOC....use it once a year to make a large-ish purchase, then pay it off.....that may be all you need to do for the secured aspect.

I think you are wise to want to raise your score. I'm in a similar position, but my score is now 750ish...I would like to try for 800+
I think that stuff falls off of your score after 5 years, right?
