Ever needed a secret place to hold that, love note?, bullet?, coin? or anything similar?
Well, this is definitely what you need!
I mean, who ever checks the INSIDE of a lighter?!

Step 1: Gathering Materials.

Well, as you have probably figured out, we are going to be hinding our valuables inside a lighter.
When doing this instructable, don't be afraid to modify the lighter to suit your own needs, after all, it is D.I.Y!

Materials:
Glue Gun, or any other type of glue, tarzan grip etc
Jet Lighter, like the one shown, a bigger lighter is preffered, look for ones with lights or similar, usually they are bulkier.
Screw Driver and Needle, to remove screws and hinges.

Step 2: Pulling It Apart.

Ok, so you have your brilliant New York lighter (guess where it's from?!?.)

Step 1:
On the bottom of the lighter, next to the refill nozle, there should be a small screw, undo it.

Step 2:
Pull on the top of the cap, to remove the 'lighter' from the case.

Step 3:
Remove the gas canister, igniter, and any other assorted electronics.
To remove the 'dodgy' hinges if you have them, poke one side with a needle of pin, then slide the metal out.

Step 4:
Where the flame is produced, lift the ring off, using a screwdriver. Pull the gas feeder out.

Step 3: Putting It Back

Righto, so we have our lighter in bits,

Step 1:
Get the pushy down bit, and glue it back into its original position.

Step 2:
Slide the cap, back into position.

Step 3:

Put your super secret things inside.
If searched, you mearly present them with a lighter :)
Have fun!

1. If you glue down the lid, how do you get your super-secret thingy out? 2. If the intent is to smuggle things past security checkpoints, the lighter willhave to function. Address these issues and you've got a real hidden safe. Great job!

If your objective was to hide something in something else, this would be cool... But if I were rifling through a person's house, a souvenir lighter is probably something I'd take.... and once I found out it didn't work, I'd toss it. So even if I were caught, and the rest of your stuff was recovered, whatever it was that was really awesome that was hidden in the fake lighter would be lost.

a burglar spends an average of 8 minutes inside a persons home. during that time, they will tend to focus on the most obvious spots that contain the most valuable items they can quickly sell. taking a souvenir lighter would be a waste of time.

My guess on where the "New York Lighter" is from.... China

I was thinking more of getting through metal detectors etc, people would recognise it as a lighter and let it be.

Umm can I have the innards of the lighter for one of my many projects?

A sharpie or highlighter is more likely to be left by someone who tries to rob you. Nice job on the writeup though.
