K'nex Grenade





Introduction: K'nex Grenade

This is a working K'nex grenade I threw together with instructions, so you can explode it too!

Step 1: Pieces You Need

Step 2: The Base

Build this and add a white connecter over the top and another arm in mirror on the other side like in the second photo. Then, add a white rod to the bottom and an orange connector to the rod.

Step 3: The Release Mechanism

Put the yellow rod into the orange connecter and then thread on the yellow hemisphere and put on the black stopper.

Step 4: Loading

The shrapnel (six spacers) on the arms and put the hemisphere over them. Finally, put the orange connecter on the top of the yellow rod to act as a safety pin and stretch two loom bands (or just a normal band doubled up) in the holes in each arm.

    For more damage, change the 6 grey spacers for 18 blue ones!

    I will make this sometime soon! How do you make it explode? Do you just throw it?

    Yeah, pretty much. Just make sure you remove the safety pin (orange connector).
