Introduction: Secret Jeans Stash

Picture of Secret Jeans Stash

Yet another nearly impossible to notice stash. Portable stash inside your pants (similar to hidden pockets)

Step 1: Make the Cut

Use your knife to make a cut.

Now your ready to stash stuff! I stashed my Lighter Stash

Step 2: Optional Step: Glue Edges

Use the hot glue gun to seal the edges, this will prevent fraying.

Awesome, i love stashes, did you know there are over 17 stashes in my room hiding everything from cash to incendiary devices. I see your collection of stash instructables but have you tried the wall technique yet, i find it to be very effective and it can be as large as you want (within reason).

"did you know there are over 17 stashes in my room hiding everything from cash to incendiary devices" well now we do and so does everyone else! isn't the idea of a stash to keep it secret.

AAGH! I have a good idea what 'the wall technique' is, but would you beleive there aren't ANY 'IBLES on it?! I just need to know HOW.....

The Mollusk (author)duck-lemon2009-02-11

Lol ya I was thinking of doing that, but the only problem is hiding the seems, unless you used the entire wall...

Actually "fray check" would work better and not leave such a thick line.

klimb (author)mtrout2011-10-21

Not everyone has a use for some super specialized product, but most anyone can use a glue gun more than once.

A big question is why do you need to hide a lighter? And if you do, maybe you shouldn't be allowed to possess a lighter.

metqa (author)itg0d3ss2011-09-22

My friends steal each others lighters ALL THE TIME. i have to hear about it anytime I borrow a lighter to light a birthday candle or something. " Make sure to put the lighter BACK IN MY HANDS." "Hey, is that MY orange lighter? " "No, You stole MY orange Lighter last week" "Where's my flashy purple swirl lighter?" "Dude I gave it back last week!"
Plus some lighters suck, and others are high quality. You loan out the sucky one and keep the easy spin Non-child-safety-lock ligheter in your stash for smoke breaks.

Nice easy instructable but why would you want to stash a lighter?

The Mollusk (author)R4Man182008-09-21

I don't know... you can stash anything... maybe so that you wont get caught for arson or something... look I haven't had the best night, so feel free to pretend I said something more clever and I was more helpful.

punkrules (author)The Mollusk2008-09-24

this would be good for a 420 stash lol <:::::::::::::::::#~~~

The Mollusk (author)punkrules2008-09-25

If you want a 420 stash, just let a girl hang on to your, um... "valuables". Tell her to put it in her bra. The police can't legally search there without a warent.

punkrules (author)The Mollusk2008-09-30

well being that i'm a girl i guess i could just do that instead lol.

The Mollusk (author)punkrules2008-09-30

Lol, oops. A few girls that I hang out with have called their bras "the best purse in the world" because they dont have to carry it, they can fit a ton of stuff in it (more, if they buy sizes bigger than what they need), and it's illegal for anyone to search there (even girls that don't smoke tell me it, because they can keep teachers from taking their phones away).

punkrules (author)The Mollusk2008-10-01

haha that's funny. it's actually a good idea to do that. good thing for "private places" being hands-off lol.

Dread_Neck (author)punkrules2010-12-02

Yep. I know a girl who keeps a 2 inch knife in her bra. For "Protection" She pulled it at some perv one time at 7-11. He flipped out lol

The Mollusk (author)punkrules2008-10-02

Hence the name "private places"

punkrules (author)The Mollusk2008-10-06


Shiftlock (author)The Mollusk2010-04-09

Note to all about the police not being able to search a girl's bra without a warrant:  The police can't search ANYWHERE without a warrant, probable cause, or permission, but if they have any of those, then a bra is no different than a pocket.  In other words, it's complete urban legend BS.  A normal police pat-down will find anything stashed in a bra.

kibbler (author)R4Man182008-10-19

That lighter probably holds a key, knife, or wad of cash. ;)

Apple_4_life (author)2010-07-15

now combine this with your gum stach ible and you'll have hidden gum, then when you want some just reach into your pants and dig around, people with probably stare at you aswell

rhaubejoi (author)2010-06-24

He stashed the lighter because he turned the lighter into a stashbox....

Don,t try this at home (author)2010-06-01

listentomewhine (author)2010-03-25

How lame...!!!??  I know of a stash everyone was born with...   :P

musicalbee2003 (author)2008-06-21

Insert lame "stash-in-the-pants" joke *here!*

Hey baby, guess what's in my pants... I'll give you a hint, Its kinda round and 3 inches long... Give up? Its a lighter!!! Lol, was that a lame enough joke?

foxtrot4697 (author)The Mollusk2009-10-21

←←←is sad

NeonLime (author)The Mollusk2008-06-22

Haha :P Nice instructable, and yes i think it would be a lame enough joke lol

The Mollusk (author)NeonLime2008-06-23


weaponscollector94 (author)2009-12-08

i think i will do this, but i am going to make some sort of curved-bladed non-metallic knife that i can put in it!  that would be so awesome!

vbghyu5 (author)2009-01-03


unpicky (author)2008-07-28

sweet i did this to my pants before i even saw this, great minds think alike

Labot2001 (author)2008-06-20

This is a good trick. Might I suggest sewing behind the "stash", so that your lighter doesn't fall into obscurity?

The Mollusk (author)Labot20012008-06-20

You can just cut it behind a belt loop. see the short thick line of yellow thread on the first picture? that makes it so my lighter stash doesn't go too far in. Besides even it it did, you'd just have to pinch behind it and work it to the opening.

Labot2001 (author)The Mollusk2008-06-20

Oh, alright, I see. Cool.
