Typically a waterproof, capped tube in the shape of a spike or stake, a dead drop spike can contain a small amount of material, e.g. a document, and can be plunged into the ground, soft wood, or some other surface to hold it in place until it is picked up. They are used in geocaching and, reportedly, by spies.
Dead drop spike. A concealment device which has been used since the late 1960s to hide money, maps, documents, microfilm, and other items. The spike is waterproof and mildew-proof and can be shoved into the ground or placed in a shallow stream to be retrieved at a later time.
