Introduction: Kite Hack

Picture of Kite Hack

Things you will need:
-old kite
-old fishing rod
-screw driver
-fishing string

Haven't you always wanted to fly a kite but hated the line tangling and having to reel in all in on the line with small plastic handled that breaks in a second. Now you can fix all of that easily in less than 10 minutes.

Step 1: Making the Fishing Rod Part

All you need to do is take the pole off of the reel or cut the pole down so there is only a handle with a grip.

Step 2: String the Reel

You can use the string that comes with the kite and handle by cutting it off of the handle. You can also use fishing string and string it to the reel by tieing it down on the reel. Then make sure that the string is evenly placed and also tie the other end to the kite.

Step 3: Finished

This is a nice idea, which I've seen done elsewhere. It's a shame you haven't shown us a picture of the one you did.
