Quick Putaway is a glitch which allows Link to put an item away without an animation. It works by interrupting the put away animation, so the game has set his item in hand to empty, but he still is holding an item. This glitch is similar to quickdraw in concept, but is performed differently and has different effects, such as the Glitched Damage Value.
Press A to put away the item, then pull a cutscene item on the next frame.
This also works with throwing a Deku Nut:
Press A to put away the item just before taking damage.
Walk off a ledge, pressing A to put away the item just before you grab the ledge.
Getting a broken stick after performing Quick Putaway with a Deku Stick will give a glitched damage value (16171617) which combines the effects of several weapons. This allows burning webs, lighting torches, activating eye switches and the Lost Woods target, stunning Gohma, stunning Barinade in the first few phases, defeating Amy as Child, and more. The glitched damage value deals 0 damage to almost all enemies in the game, except a few, such as iron knuckles.
The IDs in the table below add up to 16171617 in hexadecimal.

It can also be activated by jumpslashing with a lit deku stick right before it completely burns away.
