First things first all you have to do is take your pliers and bend you coat hanger into the shape of the picture above bend each end into a curve; then take
Your toilet paper rolls : a single roll and find the center of either side of the role marking it with your marker. Take your knife or scissors and cut from the bottom of the roll to the mark you made before ( cut upwards from the bottom of the roll until you meet the marking). Then take he coat hanger claw pieces and slot them into the top of your cut slots tape around the base to stop the claw pieces from falling out
Finally take some of your string and attach it to the inside claw pieces pulling the newly tied string to the top of the roll ( this string when pulled closes the claw) then to finish it all off take the last pieces of the sting and attach tem to to top of the claw to hold it up and wrap The other end of the string around the the spare toilet roll ( tape the string end to the toilet paper roll) done
