You ever need a stash, for whatever reason? Simply just wanna hide the keys from a drunkie? Well here's a quick and easy way to get your stash. dont be so harsh its my first instructable.

Step 1: What You Need for This Project.

Picture of What You Need for This Project.

1. empty soda (beer or whatever) can
2. top can opener
3. couple of minutes

Step 2: Opening the Can

Picture of Opening the Can

Place the can opener on top of the can and simply do what you normally do to open it.

Step 3: Once the Top Is Open..

Picture of Once the Top Is Open..

Once you have the top off the can it should look like the picture below. Make sure you wash it or else you'll get ants. Becareful with the top of the can it is very sharp.

Step 4: Finished

Now thats it, very simple. Proceed to hide whatever you want to hide.

You could also glue the top of a container like a pill bottle that doesn't have a child safety on it maybe wit super glue, then put some plaster of paris in it and screw the bottle on to the lid and but it in the plaster of paris let it dry then unscrew the lid and stash stuff and it will be heavier too like a real pop can. If you want more details on it u should click on the link i have cause it has a good video on cause they tell a little more.

i live in Quebec and i sometimes forget the words in English so i say liqueur, and DON'T use that term in France if your under 18, my parents were scolded by the manager, then he apologized when we told him we were from Quebec:P

rptbandgeek1707 (author)Tobita2008-08-05

lol, why not?


whitedem0n (author)The Mollusk2009-01-04

i am a red balloon?

The Mollusk (author)whitedem0n2009-02-11

Ya my friend was in German class and he kept talking about what he learned and (even though in was tuning him out) i guess something got through, because I started say "Ich bin ein red ballon". Hey its not as bad as Ronold Reagan callling himself a jelly doughnut lol.

your father in the stash? or a drug in the stash? either would be bad!

hash u mean i dont suport pot

Nope. Not completely original. It's almost the same as one of mine, except that I never suggested putting the lid back on.

minu (author)ich bin ein pyro2007-05-24

yeah i forgot that but pretty much we all get the idea, yeah i got this idea when i was bored and i need to find a place to hide some stuff..

whitedem0n (author)2009-01-03

i had purchased a can safe a few years back and it became moldy. How could i prevent this?

Wafflicious (author)whitedem0n2009-01-20

store it in the refrigerator.

Armaggedon (author)2008-12-13

Good job!

HeWantsRevenge (author)2008-10-12

use sandpaper on the cut edge so u dont slice anything important up

sensoryhouse (author)2008-01-15

Make that a diet, caffeine free version of Safeway's Dr. Pepper knock off to ensure no one tries to drink it.

Naw make it one of those gross veggie drinks.....

The Mollusk (author)2008-06-19

Nice! My first instuctable was a secret stash too!

langie5 (author)2008-01-13

yer all good but you wouldnt want to hide it from a drunk in a beer can

sterlingsilver (author)2007-12-22

I'm not sure when it was posted, but there's something similar to this on Metacafe, except it uses a jar inside the can with the lids glued together so it will seal.

schimmi (author)2007-08-24

i use this a lot, i have actually started building a wall of these because the stack well

daPerik (author)2007-07-28

Just ask a friend a few minutes ago, he came up with buying to bottles and cut the bottle completly and take the litt of carefully. Open the second bottle and add the things u wanna put in and screw the sealed litt back on it! Perfect!

daPerik (author)2007-07-28

Hey mate, its a cool thing u did , but u should make a litt that is possible to close properly. u can see that if u typ diversion in the search option. Cool thing, keep it up! Ps: To think it is possible to prepare a coke bottle 1,5liter as a deversion safe, without opening it from the bottom? And not braking the litt seal?

rhino (author)2007-07-05

It really doesn't do any good if there is not way to securely put the lid back on so it looks unopened.

Loveofchaos (author)2007-06-11

good idea, i have made one of these except with a screw on cap. one piece of advice. if yerr gonna hide the keys from the drunkie make sure they're not in a BEER can lol

Canookian (author)2007-06-06

Wait a minute! I have a PLAN!! *echoes into the distance* If you were to use the regular can opener at an angle...Maybe you could get the same (or close to)effect. Only, we dont have any cans lying around. Eerg... But instead of holding the can opener so that the gears are on the side, hold it so that the gears are on the bottom, and commence all of your opening needs! Can someone who owns one o' dem ol' fashin'd can openers try this for me? I would, but, as Ive said, there arent any cans lying around. We're going through a bit of a can drought

TheCheese9921 (author)2007-05-24

*cough* dealer *cough*

minu (author)TheCheese99212007-05-24

no not really but im sure a dealer could use this info, no?

TheCheese9921 (author)minu2007-05-25

lol, drugs baaaaad

Tis but a conflict of culture ;) Remember where you grew up... and that most of the world didn't grow up there :p

LasVegas (author)trebuchet032007-05-26

If you need to hide the stash, you're living in the same culture I grew up in. Drugs still bad!

trebuchet03 (author)LasVegas2007-05-26

Or you live with more than one interested person ;)

LasVegas (author)2007-05-26

You should consider cleaning that can opener, unless you're only using it to open empty soda cans. I'm sure it's dishwasher safe...

tiuk (author)2007-05-24

I tried to do this when I was a kid, but with a regular can opener. Obviously it didn't work because of how deep the lip on a pop can is. Thanks for reminding me, now that I have the other kind of can opener it's worth trying again. Then I just have to find something to hide ;)

minu (author)tiuk2007-05-24

yeah you can find the "top-can openers" like at wal-mart or kmart pretty much anywhere now.

lemonie (author)2007-05-24

Spend a bit of time looking around this site. there are at least two other can-stash Instructables, which you would find interesting, if not useful. L

pharoah (author)2007-05-24

If you cut it so the sharp edge of the can opener touches the INSIDE of the top of the can, it is not sharp because it leaves the folded-over safety seal on the edge. I've made cool cups this way :)

rocketbat (author)2007-05-24

very clever idea! good instructable!
