How to Safely Snap a Knex Rod Into an Entire Row of Connectors.





Introduction: How to Safely Snap a Knex Rod Into an Entire Row of Connectors.


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.

    Yay this is super useful for me!

    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 just stare at it. Or I just push it in and struggle like a fish playing chess.
