Intro: 'Splodies

For lack of anything better to call them. Amusing use, they will "a splode" when tossed or dropped. 4-12 pieces required, plus a rubber band, per 'splodie. These are great if you have a handfull of them and an unsuspecting friend...

Step 1: Pieces

You need (to make one with best results):

2, 4, or 6 rods of any size*
2, 4, or 6 orange/brown connector pieces
1 or more rubber bands of same size* (one works fine)

Put the orange connector pieces on one end of each rod.

*see next step

Step 2: Priming the 'splodie

I used the word priming because they will a splode when unset. This will probably happen unexpectedly if you try to throw them (they're not called throwies for a reason).

Put the rubber band between them before pulling them apart. It may take some practice.

*Note: the more rods you use, the less power they get each. The more rubber bands you use, the harder the impact must be.*

Step 3: Using the 'splodie

This is really a pointless step, as the details have been mentioned in previous steps. But for those of you who followed the pictures:

Pick up 'splodie with care
Toss or drop it at target
The pieces go in two opposite directions, so plan accordingly
Do not place in mouth, eyes, ears, or nose
Stop reading these directions
No, really. Stop.

    nice. I definitely love it. I "upgraded it to a door trap. I don't have any pictures buy ii just and it tilt on another rod and pace behind the door and close it. You put a grenade which just breaks when you drop it on the other side. When the victim opens door....beam a mess and they will run. Here. Only works for doors which open inside.

    Nicely done! Simple, but effective. There's still the problem of having to put together each piece of shrapnel, but so far it can't be avoided. I thought it would be harder to set off than mine, but its own weight did the trick.
