If your looking for a quick and easy short term stash to hide money, keys, flash drives or anything small. On most ceiling fans that have a single glass bowl there is a small decorative cover that covers the bolt that holds the glass. There is space under this small cover to stash small things.
Step 1: Warning
Warning most ceiling fans have a nut that holds the glass after you remove the decorative nut and cover, but not all fans so be careful and hold the glass to be safe.
Step 2: Remove Decorative Cover
Remove the decorative nut and cover.
Step 3: Place Items
Place your items inside the decorative cover, remember do not block the holes for the bolt and the chain. I recommend putting tape on any items in this stash to keep them from rattling while the fan is on.
Step 4: Replace Decorative Cover
Replace the decorative cover and remember to put the chains back in place or you might give your stash up.
Step 5: Enjoy
Enjoy knowing your stash is safe for a short period of time. Just remember that eventually a light bulb will burn out and someone will have to change it.
