More than once I needed a wing bolt, but I did not have one.
In this Instructable, I show you a trick how you can make a wing bolt from a bolt and a plastic bottle.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
I cut off the bottle neck
I put the bolt in the vice and heated up the bottleneck with a heat-gun.
If you don't have a heat-gun, you can use an oven or a candle.
I used my hands and pliers to shape the wings.
Then I cut off the excess plastic
That's it! Our wing bolt is ready.
You might assume that the plastic will break, but actually it's very strong.
I could no break it with my hands.
Apart from making the wing nut, you can use this method to undo nuts and bolts in emergency situations.
