Picture of Knex Binder
Hey guys. This will be my entry for the Back To School contest, so vote for it please =)

Anyway, this is a binder, but with Knex! Ill be honest, its not the most amazing thing ever. It used the 'binding' part out of a real binder, and 2 small zipties to hold it into place. The pivot connections are actually very strong and so is the the overall thing. It can hold the standard amount of paper in it (approx. 200-300 sheets)

I hope you like it, please vote, rate, comment and subscribe! Thanks.

Step 1: Front cover

Picture of Front cover
This is the front cover of the binder, very simple. Follow the pictures and steps below.
  1. Make this
  2. Make sure there is a spacer there
  3. Make this
  4. Make sure of the spacers there again
  5. Take them both and line them up like so
  6. Attach them together as shown
  7. What you should have

That was easy, next step!

Step 2: Back cover

Picture of Back cover
This is the other side of the binder. It is basically just repeating step 1, so use that for guidance. Follow the pictures and steps below.
  1. The piece on the left is the previous step, the one on the right is the same but without the grey connectors and blue spacers (read image notes)
  2. A close-up of the back cover.

SIMPLEZ! Moving on...

Step 3: The binder part

In this step I will show you how to get the metal binder thing out of your old binder. Follow the steps.
  1. This is what the binder looks like.
  2. Get some pliers, or your hand, and rip it off.
  3. What you should have now
Again, easy. To infinity and beyond!

its ok... but why would you break something to make something that does the exact same thing? dont you think its kinda pointless???
Hiyadudez (author)  ~KGB~4 years ago
No. Normal binders are boring. Its called creativity.
