Small Foldable Crossbow + Side Project Answered

1st Image: This is what the current prototype looks like, when unfolded. It can pierce through a piece of cardboard using its 1x3 rubber band string. It actually is pretty sturdy, although he blue flexi's could be considered exotic pieces =/

2nd Image: This is what it looks like when folded up, when the 4 blue flexi rods are made loose, it will try to fold up.

3rd,4th,5th Images: This is what I made in an attempt to make a crossbow even stronger, this one uses 8 strings of 5 rubber bands; 2 strings per wheel. It currently does not have a trigger and it is not possible to fire it without it, because it is impossible to draw back.

Don't underestimate it; it tears through cardboard quite nicely

What keeps the arms from folding back when the RB's are pulled back?

The four blue flexi rods do and no, they don't bend a lot.
