Introduction: Pocket Sized Grapple Gun

This grapple gun can be used for many things, from grabbing a paper off your friends desk, to getting a hat off a high shelf, this truly is the ultimate mini-tool.

Step 1: Materials

Needed
- 3 Standard Size Staples
- 1 Needle
- Thread
- 1 Black Paper-mate Ball Point Pen
- 1 Key-Chain Clip
- Low-Temp Hot Glue Gun
- Low-Temp Hot Glue Sticks
- Knife of Some Sort
Strongly Recommended
- Hack Saw or Dremel
- Empty Epoxy Putty Tube

Step 2: Saw Off Hook

Hold the key-chain clip in tour hand and saw off plastic hook, as seen in picture.

Step 3: Cut Piece of Pen

1)Pull out inside of pen

2)Measure pen against key-chain, pen peice should be about 3/16"-1/4" longer than clip piece.

3)Cut 2 pieces of ink barrel, one about 1" long and the other, about 1/4" long.

Step 4: Glue Together Pen Pieces

1)Hot glue 1" ink barrel piece to end of pen barrel piece.

2)Use needle to make sure there are no obstructions in the tube.

Step 5: Glue Pen Pieces to Clip

Glue the pen pieces to the clip and move trigger up and down a couple times to make sure it can move.

Step 6: Make the Grapple

1)Slide the smaller ink barrel piece onto the needle.

2)Pinch fingers just below ink barrel piece, position staples as evenly as possible, and apply a small bead of hot glue.

3)As a safety precaution I am required to tell you to put a bead of hot glue on the needle tip to dull it.

4)Cut a thread to the length of your desire(I recommend about 4 feet).

5)Tie the thread to the needle(at least a triple knot; very tight) and cut off the excess.

6)Tie the other end of the thread to the clip's bottom loop.

Step 7: Usage and Storage

Usage
1)Load the grappling hook into the barrel.

2)Make sure your hand is out of the way of the string.

3)Pull back the switch, and fire.

Storage
1)Wrap string around point where clip meets loop.

2)Put grappling hook through key ring, loop around ring, and put through key ring again.

3)Place it all in the empty epoxy putty tube.
