Step 1: Making the Pullback System

First up, get your cardboard tube and make two small holes at each end. At one end, screw in the loop-top screw (as shown), and put the split pin on the other side; the head facing in the tube.

Step 2: Finishing Touches!

All you have to do now is put a rubber band at the bottom of it so the rubber band you are shooting doesn't fall off every time. Done! All you have to do now is load it by putting a rubber band around the front of the split pin, and at the back of the loop-top screw! (BTW, the rubber band at the bottom helps reload it)
