    I used to make something very similar to this, and have spider-man swing off of it when I was a kid. You should bend the paper clips down a little so it'll hook on to stuff better.

    I had a fantastic mental image of someone swing-n-grappeling something a la Indiana Jones, and then having the paperclip hook rip off and the person fall to their death.

    theRIAA beat me to it. You need to get the hooks, um , hooked:-) Maybe get rid of the pen top around the grapple base as it will make it unbalanced
