I've seen a lot of noobs complain about this problem, leading them to take uneccessary shortcuts or downgrading the gun.  So I made this video.  I found that any other method can lead to the risk of damaging knex, while this method leaves knex perfectly safe.

Yes, I'm modding my TR a bit.

*EDIT* If you are trying to pound a gray rod in with this method, use a black rod to push the gray rod in its slots.

<p>Yay this is super useful for me!</p>
I was already doing a variation of this (as in always using a carbon rod on top instead of a red/etc one unless I absolutely needed to use a smaller one), but this should be really helpful for those who need it.
Usually I&nbsp;just stare at it. Or I&nbsp;just push it in and struggle like a fish playing chess.<br />

You jelly not gonna lie. Don't forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel!<br><br>Oh and for next time you want to complain about something I post:
&nbsp;hey are your thumbs double jointed? they bend SO far back!
he has hitchhiker's thumbs, it's a common trait
Yeah...<br />
&nbsp;so thats a yes?
its not so amazing, i can do it too, its actually a genetic trait, similar to attached or free hanging earlobes
My brother has it and thankfully i do not it creeps me out. *sigh of relief*
I know! a lot of people I have known for a long time have attached earlobes and I never notice.
I know a few.
yah<br>but i think it is really funny when people with attached earlobes get them pierced.
It's fine as long as they don't get those huge spacers in them.
very true my friend
Judging by Visper's comment it didn't look like he was amazed, and I didn't write that. Attached earlobes? Never hear of 'em.
you have to be kidding me. NEVER HEARD OF THEM??? do u live in a cave??? here is a picture. a= free hanging and b= attached earlobes
I have hanging earlobes
most people do
No, never hear od them, never seen them. Must be your american junk food.
wow! im amazed
DJ Radio, I invented this a LONG time ago:P
And judging by your join date, you didn't.
nice i just use a hammer and screwdriver it works geting them out as well
This is nice, but is there a way to get the rods out? 0.0
Getting the rods out is easier than putting them in actually. Just get one of the nubs, and pull as hard as you can.
Is there a less painful method?
Man the f*ck up.
I was joking -.-' <br>But still haha. Nice method either way.
Well there's always next time.
what gun is that in the video?
A customized TR.
I like to do the same thing but with the aid of a vice, one quick turn and POP.
btw it keeps K'nex safe, but does it keep your thumbs safe too?<br />
Yes...<br />
No, it hurts the shiiit! out of your fingers! Lol
