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 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.

Hmmmm, I think it would be better if you make it more "fishy":
-use a tri-pointed fish hook with glued needles
-use "fat" fishing line to make it more resistent

great job on desine but why do you put it in the epoxy putty tube?

perfect sized holding containr so it doesnt catch on the inside of your pocket or can be used as a utility belt of super annoyingness to people sitting next to you
