Introduction: Geo-Hook

Picture of Geo-Hook

Okay, yet another geocaching instructable that I've made. This hook was made for the nano cache to allow it be easily mounted to wood, and / or for the geocaches to get the cache. You don't want the cache to break when someone tries to get it..

Step 1: What Do We Need?

Okay, you don't need much at all, After all we are only bending a metal wire :)

Strongish wire ( Not too strong nor thick )

Pliers. ( Bending strong wire with your hands can hurt and also can dig into your skin )

And the mussle to bend the wire.. ( Everyone already has this ;)

Step 2: Bends 0 & 1

Okay, Two bends to start this off..

First bend the end of the wire into it's self..

Secondly you want to bend the wire into a hook.. ( Almost done already :)

Step 3: Bend 2

Okay, tilt the hook onto an angle so you can make a loop for a screw to fit through, to allow it to be nailed to some wood..

Step 4: Bend 3

Just a few more bends to help support the cache in one spot..

Note: Instead of going straght from screw one to screw two is because the extra wire, allows move movement but not limited..

Step 5: Yet Another Bend ( Almost Done )

Okay, time to fix the rest of that bending!

Step 6: Lucky Last Bend!

If you are sad to find this being the last bend, then goto step 1 :)

There's no R in this month, so mussels are out of season. Guess we'll have to wait until next month to try step 1.
