How to safely snap a knex rod into an entire row of connectors.

video 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.

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.

DJ Radio (author)  ~Aeronous~3 years ago
Yeah...
 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
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
