Step 1: General assembly

Picture of 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'.

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)

Step 3: Use those zipties !!!!!!

ok now take a piec of tape and lay it flat sticky side up. line up the zipties on it about evenly spaced.
then wrap it around the pipe so the knobs are in the inside and all are on that 5" mark from earlier.(refer to pictures) second picture has to be opened on a new page.then secure them to the pipe using more zipties.

mix up some epoxy and rub it allover the zipties.that when it dries it looks like this:(refer to pictures)

when it's dry go ahead and put the hose clamp on it for extra security. some pictures have to be opened in another screen.srry.
