Office Ninja Grappling Hook

Need a grappling hook to close your door? Well instead of getting up build a grappling hook to shut it for you.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

Three (3) large paper clips
One (1) small paper clip
Fishing line or dental floss

Step 2: Making the Hook

Bend outside wire up.

Step 3: Making the Hook

Join the first two clips together by sliding them on top of each other and having the wires interlock.

Step 4: Making the Hook

Join the third clip on linking it with the others.

Step 5: Renforce the Hook

Straightenout the smaller paperclip into a line. Pass through the hole in the three large paper clips and wrap the wire around.

Step 6: Bend the Hook

Bend the wire out to make a hook shape. We coo'?

Step 7: Attach

Tie fishing line or dental floss onto the base part of the hook. Loop the line around all three of the paperclips. Use to grapple stuff and finally open that door. (This is really easy to reinforce with ductape or ductape or ductape or... ductape. I'm sure you all can think of a way to reinforce the hooks, too, but this is a simple one and filing down fishing hooks is a lot of work. And finally i know that there is another grappling hook at: tiny grappling hook no need to post that.

    I made one of these earlier this week and took it to school. I took it out of my pocket after I had finished my test (nobody else had finished), then my math teacher saw it. She came up to me, took it up, and told me it was a weapon and that I had detention. olawdy, what is considered a weapon by schools these days? (Our math teacher is like 60 or something-- maybe she thought it was a fishing hook?) Anyway, nice instructable. Very easy to follow.

     Next time use a mini camera stand when taking pics. It is a bit shaky otherwise it is pretty good
