Introduction: 9-Volt Secret Money Holder

Picture of 9-Volt Secret Money Holder

Keep your money safe and hidden from curious eyes.

Step 1: Gather Materials

Picture of Gather Materials

Wire Stripper(or Needle-Nose Pliers)
9-Volt Battery
Punch(For starting the metal off)
I use the wire stripper/cutter because it is easier to use for the metal.

Step 2: Start Folding Up Metal

Picture of Start Folding Up Metal

Take the Punch and dig under the metal keeping the snap in place, then use the pliers or wire strippers and grap the metal and peel JUST around 3 of the edges.(the two long sides and 1 short side)

Step 3: Slide Off Snap and Remove Cells

Picture of Slide Off Snap and Remove Cells

Slide Off the Snap, and then dump out the old cells.DO NOT USE NEW BATTERY CHANCE OF SHOCK!!!(only if your skull is cracked open and your brains are hanging out).

Step 4: Tape Short Side On

Picture of Tape Short Side On

Take the snap and tape one side of it, then slide it into plce again and attach the tape to the side of the battery.

Step 5: Stash the Loot

Now its time to take your money, fold it up and insert it. When you are done with that, fold the snap back over it.(You may need to bend the metal out a little more to make it fit)

Step 6: Finished!!!

AnarchistAsian (author)Derin2008-11-04

wow, i totally forgot i commented on this. by the way, the battery looks so damn deformed that if anybody in my house found it, theyd throw it in the trash.

kachup (author)2009-12-30

Nice one! though you cant put a lot of money in there! nobody would ever guess!

dandychris395 (author)2009-09-26

that is cool

k_man93 (author)2009-08-15

drugs, anyone?

Chadworkz (author)2008-04-16

You could leave three sides unopened, and fully open one of the short sides...using wire cutters, cut off the part of the short side you uncrimped and is bent up...also cut about 1/16" down and across as well. This way, the "lid" will slide in and out like sliding glass doors. The reason I say this is because it will look much nicer, be easier to use, and you won't be left with a damaged looking battery. Just my $0.02...

tadashi13 (author)Chadworkz2009-07-28

yeah i like that idea chad ill proly try it that way.

skatelong (author)2009-05-18

is that really what your cells look like like?? this is what mine came out as.

thats because yours was not an energizer cell... only energizer use AAAA cells in their battery, everyone else uses what you have in yours...

RagingAres (author)2009-07-10

This is a pretty cool Instructable. what other things do you think we could do this with? it seems as a 9v when its light, it gets thrown out in my house.

nerd12 (author)2008-12-08

you should make it look more normal and if your parents find it, it will probably be chucked into the trash.

Mattrox (author)2008-11-19

Very cool
