Introduction: "Safe" Spark Scooter

About: I'm a self-proclaimed geek who likes computers, legos, and music.

This is a way to create a child-safe yet fun design. I did this when my brother told me I couldn't  "spark' his spark scooter. So, I just designed a way to not use the spark but get a cool effect. the total cost varies. If you have a spark scooter, It's practically nothing. But, the Spark scooters cost 65-80 dollars depending where you get them.

Step 1: Stuff You Need

1 Razor Spark Scooter
1 Piece Sidewalk Chalk
1 Rubber Band (2 if they're small)


Step 2: Dissassemble!

Now, you need to take out the spark bar. Instructions for this are in your scooter manual.

Step 3: Assemble!

Now, take the rubber band and put it around the chalk and one of the spark holders.

Step 4: Wrap!

Wrap it over a couple times. Make sure it's tight!

Step 5: Adjust!

Gently slide the chalk up or down so that it will be right above the ground.

Step 6: Learn!

Just Spark the scooter and it can create a LONG line, you can also do designs and letters.

    Your welcome!!!!!!!

    Honestly, I'm loving that the "Safe" scooter instructable is being demonstrated by someone barefoot without kneepads (and presumably elbowpads or helmet)... 

    In all seriousness though, how is this "safer" than sparking?

    he is wearing a helmet, and you don't have to worry about catching grass growing in the cracks from igniting.
