Need a grappling hook to close your door? Well instead of getting up build a grappling hook to shut it for you.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

Three (3) large paper clips
One (1) small paper clip
Fishing line or dental floss

<strong>I really enjoy this it actually helped my heel... i have had heel problems for quite a while now and i made this and my heel is better .............. i was also wondering if there was a way to launch it out of a airsoft gun or a launcher for it</strong>
you could join this with another ible that has a launcher....
its a little blurry
Can we use ducktape to reinforce it?<br />
This ible is awEsome,but I don't know if it's awesome enough for duct tape
I purchased a handbag from brandbagshop.net. It only takes 3days to get it. So quickly.
I made one of these earlier this week and took it to school. I took it out of my pocket after I had finished my test (nobody else had finished), then my math teacher saw it. She came up to me, took it up, and told me it was a weapon and that I had detention. olawdy, what is considered a weapon by schools these days? (Our math teacher is like 60 or something-- maybe she thought it was a fishing hook?) Anyway, nice instructable. Very easy to follow.<br />
Thx man! I managed to make a good door-closer.
sweet.!!!!!!!!!!!! how much free time do you have
anyone that is a member on this site has infinite amounts of free time. trust me.
Yeah. Heh. Just like /b/... *gasp* I just broke two rules at once! NOOOOO!
straight trippin dawg
yah big time
y not just scoot/roll over and close it
I made this, it rorcks
&nbsp;Next time use a mini camera stand when taking pics. It is a bit shaky otherwise it is pretty good&nbsp;
i like these, i'll make one...i made one that was better once, but now i forget how to make it , and my mom threw it away... ;(
that is cool
nice that is cool
wait in step 2 do u use the big and small clip or 2 big ones
2 big ones
it works great! but instead of a small paper clip i used a rubber band. it was easier to hold together than bend a paper clip
I don't really understand what it means by slide the clips on top of eachother to make them interlock some 1 wanna help me
this is awesome! i'm sitting here at my desk and i made one, i don't have any fishing line nearby, so i have to go to my room to get it =(<br/>
lol, almost worked ;)
im sure this is the reason they were invented, because someone was to lazy to go inside a building and go up an elevator/stairs.
lol climbing up a wall is probably harder than stairs so i think it would be more for extremists ;)
i cant figure out exactly what to do here i think you should upload a clearer picture
I am making a knex fishing pole/thing grabber, and was possibly considering this for the hook. Would you mind if I provided a link to this instructable for the making of the hook part? -Constructo Man
nice but I made a stronger 1 out of and old plastic coated metal coat hanger
Not bad, but i couldn't see too clearly on the second pic.
i've got a great way to shorten this instructable......buy some string for 10 cents and tie it to ur door handle!
yes but it would ruin the point of the grappling hook. duh
damm funny!!!!!!rofl lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
twine hurts your fingers
FrenchCrawler and Mutant are nerds
That is really cool, but i can imagine the paper clips bending or breaking instead of closing a door.
What is it with the grappling hooks? I've seen three at least, and they're all paper-clip based. I'm unsure as to the value of these (if any).
hey french crawler you seem to get around really well on this website ur on every instructable ive looked at!!!
that wont work, ud be pulling the wrong way to close the door
Looking at the topmost picture, if he's sitting to the right side of the door, and if he pulls hard enough to get enough inertia, he could get that (heh-closet) door to close.
Actually, if you look at his last step's pictures, he's using the hook to open the door.
yer, thats what i mean by pulling the wrong way, you'd be pulling the door open not closing it intriguing
"Use to grapple stuff and finally open that door." Read the last step.
LOL. cool time-waster! Right up there with the coffe-stirrer-and-thumb-tack darts. And FrenchCrawler... "Lighten up Francis!"
Good job quoting from a movie...Except you forgot to mention the source.<br/>Here's a link: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.willhines.net/spitemag/bile/francis.htm">http://www.willhines.net/spitemag/bile/francis.htm</a><br/><br/>There we go, now we all know where (what movie) you quoted from. It's always nice to give credit to the people who came up with the saying, if you yourself are going to use it.<br/>
Could you include a video of you using this on the door? Cause I think it would be a little difficult to hook the handle with this kind of design (especially if you're sitting down like 3-4 feet away). Might just be easier to get up and close it...
