Picture of How to Hack a Gumball Machine!

I love bubble gum, but I don't always have money. So I started messing around with my gumball machine, and figured out this really cool hack!

 I'm not responsible for this, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!


You just need a gumball machine and your hands!

Step 1: The Top

You need to twist the top part, you don't need a screwdriver, keep twisting and messing with the screw so it loosens.

Step 2: Interior Bolt

Once you lift off the top, there should be a bolt with a nut on it, loosen that and the insides should come out.

Step 3: Enjoy You Gumballs!

Once you remove the insides, you can reach into the bowl and take how every many gumballs you want!

After you are done, put everything back the same way, so others have to pay!

Where did you buy those gum balls because I have a couple of them gum ball machines lying around catching dust and I want to put gum in them.

I bought them at a Target. Many stores have them you just have to find where they are. Also you can check online if you can't find anything locally.
