Pistol Grip for Wiimote




Absolutely indispensible for shooting games on the Wii. Makes Red Steel infinitely more fun.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Get the Materials


AXE shower gel, 12 oz. bottle
2 rubber bands
scissors (possibly a knife)

Step 2: Get Clean!

Get clean, the cleanest you've ever been with this 12 ounces of cleaning goodness. After you finish this instructable, you'll be too busy to shower so shower now WITH REVITALIZING OXYGEN (?!)

Step 3: Trace

Clean? Good. Rinse the bottle out as much as you can. Some soap will inevitably be left in there for now, but no worries. Trace your Wiimote onto the bottom corners of the bottle.

Step 4: Cut Plastic, Not Yourself

Okay, so this bottle is one tough mother. I punctured the middle of the bottom, worked the scissors to the ends, then it was pretty easy to cut around the edges. A sharp knife may definitely be helpful in this part. Just cut the bottom out (as shown in the picture) then work your way along the lines you drew. Also, you might want to put 2 quarter-inch slits along each side where the line starts to curve to allow for the bottle to flex around the Wiimote.

Step 5: Rubber Band Man

Rinse out the bottle and slide the Wiimote into the top. Take off the cap of the bottle and put two rubber bands so they're stuck between the cap and the body of the bottle, then wrap them up to the top around the Wiimote (one should end up going over the word "HOME" and the other just above the 1 button).

You're done! Red Steel should now be vastly more fun, on both the sword and gun parts.

    Thank you! This is exactly what I was looking for. I am thinking about trying to make a pvc pipe stock, so you can use It like a rifle. After six years in the ARMY I'm used to swinging an M-16 around.
