For this project you will need: 3-4 paperclips, a plastic straw, a FULL spool of thread(any colour) and maybe some duct tape ( i suppose any kind of tape will do)

Step 3: The Making

First bend the paper clip like so..

Step 4: The Making

Cut of the bottom part so it looks like a 45degree angle
Remeber to do this with all the paper clips

Step 5: The Making

Tape all of the "angles" together

Step 6: The Making

    u can wrap the ends of the papers clips in duct atpe (alot) and then if ur worried bout the srting breaking just use floss itll hold human weight voila

    I'm making a grappling hook from a steel rod that will hopefully function as a real one would. I've been taking pictures so I might make an i'ble on it.

    If you do make one please make an i'ble ( i've really been hoping for someone to make a real grappling hook

     yeah seriously does it work?

    oh damn i was hoping it could aha

    YAY! Coat Hangers! You could also put the straw all the way in so it's straight. Makes thread easier to unwind.

    take a binder with half rings and those hooky things and weld the hooky things in a tri tip grappling hook

    You know you could put something on it and then use it to put the thing on the roof or what ever you shoot the hook on

    ive got a great idea but i need to get my 1st one out on the site first
