This is a cool project to make that you can hide small stuff in. You can roll up money and put that in the high lighter. Can put matches in it what ever you feel. This is pretty much a free project to make. Also you can take the inside of the high light and put it in a bottle of water and it will glow in the black light. That's another project though. The tip of the high lighter will remain and can write with it for a little bit. It does require a butter knife to open which makes it less likely to be opened by someone who doesn't know anythings in it. Make sure you keep it in a place that know one else will pick it up and take it to use. Make sure to use the bigger high lighter.

stuff to hide

Step 2: Making

Making the high lighter safe is pretty straight forward. I found using a butter knife was the easiest way to dis assemble the high lighter. In order to open up the high lighter you need to take your butter knife and stick it in the back end cap. Pry off the the white cap /ip. This should pop right out if you pry at it right. Make sure not to ruin the cap when taking it off. Take out the inner high lighter part this should slide right out giving you an open space. You can put money in it, bullets, notes, whatever you can think of that fits. Then just pop the cap back in and put in a safe place. Make sure not to confuse it with other high lighter.

Cool idea! before I readvthe ible I thought high lighter was a lighter brand from the first pic haha. You may want to add some cushioning between bullets incase the highlighter was dropped or thrown.
This is very unique! If someone was trying to steal money from you, this is most definitely the last place they'll look. Very effective and creative!
<p>This is a really cool idea! I'd be interested in possibly cutting the ink reservoir in half and placing it back so that the highligter still works. </p>
<p>....and adding whatever is necessary to eliminate rattling. Also, try to add items that approximate the weight of an unaltered marker. The .22 LR and .45 ACP cartridges shown might make it a tad heavy.</p>
<p>I love all of these ideas! You know, I'm sure that someone would feature this if it worked! Seamster did something like this a little bit ago and his got <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Shaving-Can-Safe-that-still-shoots-foam/" target="_blank">featured</a>. It's just such a great idea!</p>
<p>very true</p>
<p>good idea</p>
