    lol you can buy army grappeling hooks at my local surplus store!!!

    since humans can't use it, maybe robots should use it

    cool pocket knive

    I used to make something very similar to this, and have spider-man swing off of it when I was a kid. You should bend the paper clips down a little so it'll hook on to stuff better.

    I had a fantastic mental image of someone swing-n-grappeling something a la Indiana Jones, and then having the paperclip hook rip off and the person fall to their death.

    Ahhh, good 'ol mental fascination's!

    theRIAA beat me to it. You need to get the hooks, um , hooked:-) Maybe get rid of the pen top around the grapple base as it will make it unbalanced

    Haha, so true.
