    I'm making a grappling hook from a steel rod that will hopefully function as a real one would. I've been taking pictures so I might make an i'ble on it.

    YAY! Coat Hangers! You could also put the straw all the way in so it's straight. Makes thread easier to unwind.

    You know you could put something on it and then use it to put the thing on the roof or what ever you shoot the hook on
