So I got the great idea of hiding the key on my bicycle so if I ever happen to need to lockup my bike, then I wouldn't forget the key at home. I found a great spot right away when I turned the bike upside down.
Quick and easy and free! Took me longer to take photos than to put this together.
- Key (to hide)
- Wine bottle cork (mine is synthetic)
- Drill or Awl
- Dremel (Optional. If you need to shave sides off a house key, etc.)
Step 1: Drilling
Got this beauty of hand drill from my in laws stuffed garage. It doesn't get much use and I was glad it worked well with my Croc-vise.
Step 2: Inserting One
Step 3: Inserting Two
Step 4: Ender
Oh, this should work for any kind of key. This would be a great spot to hide an spare house key. You will probably want to shave down the sides of the key with a Dremel to get it to fit.
2/2 Addendum: A couple bike repair men commented that water is mostly liking going to make it's way inside the fork's pipe when the bike ever gets wet and the key will rust. If my bike ever gets well, I'll probably just try and remember to remove the cork/key until the bike drys. Then again the next time I get the Dremel out, I'll probably carve 3 or 4 drainage grooves down the length of the cork itself. Will upload a photo if I do.
