Hiding Intelligence in a Food Can

Concealing items in food cans can be a messy and inefficient business. But if you follow 15-year-old “monster_mash’s” easy steps, you’ll arrive at something very slick and subtle.

Items required:

  • Two identical food cans
  • Strong, small magnets (e.g. neodymium)
  • Felt or other smooth material
  • Can opener
  • Super glue
  • Hairdryer (optional)

In brief, you’ll need to: Remove the top and label from one of the cans; apply felt to the inside; secure the top back on with four small magnets; and apply a fresh label from your second can.

We made one ourselves and it works brilliantly.

This article is part of our series on stealthy ways to secrete your secrets. For more in the series click here. And if you have an idea for a great everyday hiding spot, send it to us at makeyourown@spyscape.com. We’ll feature the best on our website later in the series.
