Hey guys it's my 2nd day at Instructables and 3rd post! I know there are lots of air soft grenades out there, but i just felt like making this. Check out my instructable for a full-auto airsoft gun at

Step 1: Materials

A small box, I used one that my dog's eye drops came in, (steroids for his corneal abrasion)
a paperclip

Step 2: Step 1!

Picture of Step 1!

take the box and cut it a bit more than halfway, so you have a box with 1 open side and a box with 2. Then cut like in the picture and make a hole in the biggest flap.

Step 3: The Pin

Picture of The Pin

For the pin, just take the paper clip and bend it in a circle or square or whatever shape you want, leaving a straight line about an inch and a half long. Cut off the excess of the pin and stick it in the grenade, by taking the two small flaps and sticking them inside the "fold" of the paperclip/pin, and then stick the straight part through the hole and put the big flap where you put the little ones.

Step 4: In Action!

I have a video of it in action but my camera isn't working right now. It won't let me put the video onto the computer so you'll have to wait a little bit for that... sowwy!

Sorry about your dog's condition. :(

I agree. p.s did he die?

I've had two-no, three!- corneal abrasions.

"Abrasion" is just a medical term for a scrape, same as a "laceration" means "a cut". 

"Corneal" is another form of the word "Cornea", which is the protective outer covering of the eye.  (

Put 'em together, and I'm guessing his dog ran through some bushes (what i did, once, with my eyes open...emphasis on the "once"!) or got into a fight with a cat, and his eye got scratched-the drops are an antibiotic and healing blend, sorta like ophthalmic (pertaining to the eyes....) Neosporin/triple antibiotic ointment/bacitracian/whatever you use in yer cuts to protect and help 'em heal.

A corneal scrape ain't comfy, but it ain't life threatenin', neither.

Thank you!

Air_Assassin (author)2010-12-13

music is my lfe2 (author)2008-09-06

wait u need to re word that better ps.How it that a grenade? please reply

I don't really know what to call it... when you throw it it kind of "rains" bb's. give me a name and I'll switch

pyrokid (author)Teh_Fluff2008-09-09

wouldn't this do the same thing as just throwing the bb's? and you're 'ible really doesn't give any way to tell how to use it...

twenglish1 (author)pyrokid2008-09-09

needs an m-80 then its an airsoft grenade

dla888 (author)twenglish12010-01-01

I think that would destroy the bbs

Teh_Fluff (author)pyrokid2008-09-14

and also, you can throw a box with a bit of weight better than a bunch of BB's.

Teh_Fluff (author)pyrokid2008-09-14

take out the pin and throw.

Another Question (sorry but its a little confusing to me) How does it "spring" out of the box?

Zippy_Pyromaniac (author)2008-10-29

You could tie a string to the paperclip/flaps so it would have more momentum and more accuracy.. if any

music is my lfe2 (author)2008-09-07

does the ring acualy work

ya, it keeps the BB's in the box (author)2008-08-23
