Step 5: Retractable Claws (putting it together)

Now splay your three main tubes out at a slight angle, place your two spacers between them to keep them angled slightly apart, and duct tape them in place. (Note: I found my spacers would occasionally pop out from between my tubes in spite of the duct tape; you might want to reinforce with Popsicle sticks or glue the spacers in place to avoid this problem.) Plug the metal end tubes into the tips of your main tubes. Make sure the end tubes are firmly in place, and most importantly make sure that they're straight so the claws still slide freely. Then tape the leather piece over the top of the main tubes so that it hides where the main tubes and end tubes join. The leather piece will come out of the jacket sleeve and lay on top of the glove. Finally, load your claws in through the backs of the main tubes, and plug and duct tape the back ends.
