Step 1: General assembly

cut the 1/2 pvc in these measurements: a 3 foot section a 6" section and a 12" section

now arange and glue into the police baton you see below. the front most part is 12" and the handle is the 6" and the back is 3'.

now measure 5 inches down the fron most part and make a mark around the pipe

Step 2: Zipties!!!!!!!1

take your zip ties (i used eight but ended up using only 5) and cut from the nob at the top toward the back 3 and 1/2" (refer to picture)
