Step 1: Gather Materials
Materials Needed Include
- Pringles can lid
- Hitch Pin
- Metal rod
- Blind tilt
- Hot glue gun
- Mason line rope
After gathering all of the materials the first thing to do is attach the hitch pin to the open loop that is on the blind tilt. These two being connected is what allows the invention to rotate.
The second thing to do is measure out the string to a length that is about an inch longer than the Pringles can. After, tie the string securely to the loop in the hitch pin.
By this point, it should look how it does in the image included.
Step 3: Gluing
With the hot glue gun, apply hot glue to the bottom of the metal rod and wrap the other end of the rope to it, making sure that the rope is fully secured.
Step 4: Finishing Touches
There are only a few steps remaining.
- Take a Pringles can lid and punch a small hole into it for the metal rod to go through
- Glue the blind tilt to the lid making sure that the hole on the blind corresponds to the hole on the lid
Step 5: Ready to Use
At this point, the invention is fully functional. The last step is to poke a hole in the bottom of any Pringles can so that the product can work. After all the hole is punched, just snap on the lid to the bottom of the can and twist the hitch pin, and the Pringles chips will rise up.
Now everything is finished!
