To load, open the clothespin, pull back the launching rubber band, and put the end of the launching rubber band into the clothespin. You must then put a Nerf dart onto the barrel as shown in the second picture. Push the legs of the clothespin together to fire. Do not fire at eyes or face.

Really cool! The propulsion used on this is similar to the crossbolt!
