Introduction: Retractable Defense Baton

One Sunday afternoon, I was playing watch_dogs and i was just wondering if it was possible to make my own version of Aiden's Defense baton. And It was, it only took me 1 hour to build this. So lets get building.

My Baton was 6.5 Inches when collapsed and 13 inches when fully extended. I wouldn't recommend making it any smaller than this or else it wouldn't be much of a defense item.

Step one: Get 3 pipes, one smaller than the other, and make sure they fit nicely inside of each other and make sure they can slide smoothly in one another.

Step Two: Put tape on the end of the smallest pipe and slide it in the medium sized pipe, it might be hard to get it in at first so just remove a little bit of tape at a time, then do that with the medium pipe inside the largest pipe.

Step Three: Add an end cap to the smallest pipe so it can look good when collapsed. Then add a Second end cap to the last big pipe on the bottom to seal the other pipes from falling out.

Step Four: Paint The pipes if you want, I didn't because I had No paint, and on my end Brass, Galvanized Steel, and Copper, looked pretty cool so yea.

And Now You Are All Done!!!! Enjoy your new Watch_Dogs Baton.

    How do the pipes not come out of each other what did you do to keep them in.

    what kind of diameter would the tubes need to be? i'm lookijng at constructing this and dont want to be buying loads of the wrong type, cheers

    To make the whole unit more effective I would use steel throughout the construction as copper is quite maleable. I would also suggest the use of a solid peice of rounds took for the smallest diameter to add some heft to the thing. And instead of tape take a hammer and try to flair the edge of the smallest round stock and middle pipe section. If you have access to it a couple quick, good tacs from a MIG welder would make an excellent stopper.

    Your unit would fail because a hollow pipe has very little mass. Try filling the smallest pipe with quickrete or something to give it a little more "oomph". Even a heavy rubber you could pour into it would work.

    I know, and this unit has a lot of room for modifications too, like tapering the pipes, but that would be hard.

    PVC could definitely work, and it may be super light weight too!

    Pretty clever, and it seems like it could fold up pretty small as well. Thanks for sharing!
