Introduction: Simple Knex Safe

 
 this is my simple knex safe. it is simple because it is mainly made to demo-straight the main mecinism. it is my first instructable so srry 4 bad instructions. it is based on i am canadians safe that i got bored waiting for, so give him some of the credit. please build and rate 5*!!! :) 
ps: this is the first knex safe with instructions on the whole of the internet!!!!



finaly sorted out the jumbo video!!!!

Step 1: Turney Thingy

 this is the part that you turn to get in.

Step 2: The Mechinism Frame

 this is the part that holds the bit you just made. dont worry!! this step isnt as long as the last.

Step 3: The Butten

 this is the butten that you push when you have entered your code. this step is even easyer!

Step 4: Twistey Thingy

 this is the thing that you twist once you have pushed the butten. this step is the easyest!

Step 5: The Door

 this is the door that opens once you have done all the other stuff. this step is sort of mediem

Step 6: Thing That Guards the Square Things

 this stops peoples hands getting into the main mechinism!! this piece is extra easy but, be warned the next 2 steps is deadly hard!!!! :o 

Step 7: The Box. What Thats the Shortest Name Weve Had So Far? What Happend to All of the Ridulessly Long Utter Rubbish Names We Have Had So Far??? O There It Is.

 not much to say.... its the box where we store stuff....thats all....what.... you want your monney back.....

Step 8: Assembly!!

 finaly it is the part you have been waiting for.... the assembly.  this is the last building step step.

Okay, Now that youve built the tumbler,... how do you figure out the code?

author
KnexFreak360 (author)2011-02-17

author
shieldsam (author)2010-12-12

dude this sucks, can u post some pics of the white rods that stick out of the bits o the grey rod with the wheel? untill then, 0.5*

author
slithien (author)shieldsam2010-12-12

If you mean the white rods that stick out of the squares that spin, then place them where you want on the white connecter. Your code will be depend on where you place them. If this doesnt help then comment me back. I wont upload more photos because my laptop got taken away from me and everyone else managed to build it fine.

superbestknex (author)slithien2011-01-13

what is the combo two open it

author
slithien (author)superbestknex2011-01-14

The code depends on where you place the white rods on the square things.

author
superbestknex (author)slithien2011-01-28

how long did it take you to load

author
xXFor_The_WinXx (author)2011-01-10

What will happen if i spin it randomly :P will it still click into place ??

author

what is the combo

author
slithien (author)xXFor_The_WinXx2011-01-10

No, if you spin it randomly, when you push the button it will be blocked by the sguare things

salomon1996 (author)2010-11-19

lilnorm123 (author)2010-09-28

this is really cool but... who needs a safe to keep blue rods safe? =)

author
slithien (author)lilnorm1232010-09-29

It can store many things. Not just blue rods

author
lilnorm123 (author)slithien2010-11-14

author
slimshaddy (author)2010-11-03

I put a combination on it so you don't have to look at the top

author
slithien (author)slimshaddy2010-11-03

I did have one of them but the paper kept ripping and getting creased so i took it of

author
slimshaddy (author)2010-11-03

make box bigger

author
slithien (author)slimshaddy2010-11-03

But its box can fit lots of stuff so doesnt realy need to be made bigger.

author
slimshaddy (author)2010-11-02

how do you make the box area bigger?

author
slithien (author)slimshaddy2010-11-02

So you can store more stuff
