How To Use Lego Jurassic Grappling Hook

High performance grappling hook

Step 6: Step 1: Cut Aluminum Step 2: Drill and Round Step 3: Add the Hardware Step 4: AutoCad Draft Step 5: Laser Cutting Step 6: Evaluation

Show All 9 Articles We carry a lot of different things. Sometimes we drop them. Instead of having to carry items out of reach from your everyday life, get your grappling hook! Share it here This is the continuation of the original grappling hook I posted. The first one worked great, but not so easy to stow away. Here is what I'm working on right now. It's a cross between a mechanical claw and a grappling hook. When it touches, gravity pushes the jaws open. Raise your jaws shut at your cost. Now I feel better about all the quarters I've got lost in machines. This is funded on Kickstarter now that you want to give it a try. And for all DIY people, once the project is closed I'll be attaching the file in step 4. So what makes it high performing? It can only be used as a 2 pillar hook. It "bites" objects that could slip out of a grapnel. Installing the cross coupling makes it a 4 pronged grappling hook. Compact enough to be stowed on a backpack strap. Cutting Aluminum: Can be disassembled for more compact storage.Step 1 Grab a section of 1/8 "x3 / 4" aluminum bar from the hardware store. I think it costs around € 7.00 for section A 3 '. . Cut six sections each 3 "long. I used a scroll saw to do this. Once that was done I put it in my mini-grinder to square up the edges. Don't forget your safety glasses. Step 2: .. Drill and Round After marking You made the holes with a center punch. I put the pieces back into the grinder and drilled the holes. It is important to let the holes line up so you might want to clamp the pieces together and drill them all at the same time Edges to each piece I did a bit of deburring in my mini lathe. The jaws are cut by moving the x and y axes simultaneously. This is where all of my etch-a-sketch training came in handy. Once they were cut, rounded off i put them over too. step 3: add the hardware view all 8 items the pieces are stacked in an alternating pattern.for the prototype i used the gu te old nuts and bolts. The top joint is held together with paracord. Now that it's all together, I tested it on a few different objects. ! Off to the computer Step 4: AutoCad Design I love some AutoCad myself. I started with a basic 3 "x 3/4" rectangle. I further rounded over the edges and placed the holes. That made the shortcuts. The claw part took a lot more work. Since the parts overlap and mirror each other, the curves had to be nice. It's hard to imagine on screen but printing out the parts in paper and cutting them out helps. When I was happy with the file I sent it to a local laser cutter. Step 5: laser cutting I took the parts and put them together like the prototype. I have upgraded to better hardware though. This was cut from Delrin, which is a high strength plastic. Step 6: Review viewing all 7 items was fun doing this. I'm still perfecting the design. Some ideas are: Including a magnet in the design and making a magnet mount for magnetic retrieval. Add a secondary function to the cross hook. How does it tie a gear or add a hex tool to cut out. Changing the shortcuts so a rubber band forces the jaws closed. So you could tie it to a pole and use it as a "lifting platform". Build an XL version or with titanium. Thanks for reading.

11 Step: Step 1: Find your inner hunter-gatherer. Step 2: familiarize yourself with the role. Step 3: run the line through the fishing rod. Step 4: put on the bobber. Step 5: Put a medium-sized split shot weight just below the bobber Step 6: Tie it to the hook at the end of the line. Step 7: hook the worm. Step 8: Your finished line should look like this: Step 9: cast the line. Step 10: Safety Instructions Step 11: Conclusion

Whether you just want to find a leisurely activity while enjoying the outdoors or the zombie apocalypse has come, it makes sense to learn how to string and cast a fishing line. Since there are many different types of fishing reels, robbers, hooks, weights and lures, this set of instructions focuses on setting up a baseline with a bail reel, bobber, weights and a worm hook. Ironing reels are useful for digging bait long distances because the design of the spool allows fishing line to flow unimpeded from the reel by a nose cone or friction from a spool. This is especially useful when trying to fish in a lake from a boat or from the shore because you need to get your hooks to be able to catch fish. In the following sections you will find the materials you will need, easy to follow, step by step instructions and safety information to help you feel confident in pouring your first line. Remember to relax and have fun! Materials: ● Fishing rod and reel bail with the line already on spool ● Worm hook and worm (or artificial worm) ● Bobber and split shot weight ● Scissors or knife ● Pliers Step 1: Find your inner hunter and gatherer. 1. Contact Artemis, the Greek goddess, if you need help. You can also try on a lot of fur, just eat it, jerky, and call yourself Daniel Boone. Step 2: familiarize yourself with the role. Try flipping the deposit (see picture above) on; this allows the line to move freely. Now turn the deposit back down with the line below it. You'll notice it locks the line, stopping you from pulling out. Step 3: run the line through the fishing rod. Flip the hanger up so that the fishing line is free. Draw enough line to be about twice the length of the fishing rod. Fold the bracket back down to lock the row. Unscrew the row by the bottom metal ring until you reach the top ring. Be careful not to wrap the line around the rod as you move the line upwards.Step 4 topic: put over the bobber. a. Put on the bobber. You'll want to secure thebobber with 3-4 feet of excess line underneath. There are hooks on the top and bottom of the turn signals (the top is usually the side with a small cylinder sticking out. See picture above). To expose the lower hooks, press down on the plastic cylinders. To expose the top hook, place your fingers over the bottom hook and press on the same plastic cylinder.Now to attach the bobber to your line: ● Put the top hook and wrap the line around the hook ● Put You the bottom hook and wrap the line around itStep 5: Put a medium-sized split shot weight just below the bobber This will allow you to throw farther and more accurately. To attach the weight, use pliers to open the "mouth" of the weight, then line the weight into the mouth and use the pliers to clamp the weight onto the line.Step 6: tie the hook on the End of the line. Follow the steps in the picture above to tie your fishing knot. Most of the other knots coming will be undone while fishing. When you are done you should have your knot tight and cinched close to the hook. To get on the first step in the picture below, thread the end of the row through the loop on the hook and bring it up to 3 inches, making a U shape. Bring your fingers together holding the top of the U together so that there is enough excess to be able to complete the knot and then twist the hook. Now finish the knot by opening the picture.Step 7: put the worm on the hook. Slide the worm upside down on the hook so that its body covers most of the hooks. Wrap the excess length of the snail around the hook and secure it but you can. You don't want much, if any, of the slugs dangling off the hook because that gives a smart fish a free meal. See the picture above for different ways to attach worms.Step 8: Your finished line should look like this: Step 9: pour the line. You can cast standing or sitting. Either way, you can follow these instructions. a. Check to make sure no one is behind you. Also, make sure your line isn't snagging on near trees or shrubs. b. Point your index finger (the dominant hand) on the line at the end of the temple, just above the reel, holding it firmly on the bar. Flip the hanger to reveal the line, still holding tight with your index finger to keep the line from unwinding. Hold the handle of the wand with your other hand. (See picture above) c. Angle the top of the bar behind you (over your dominant shoulder) along your side, slightly upward. See the picture below. d. Move the pole along your side. DO NOT angle the bar in line with your body, it could hit the hook and get you stuck. Pay attention to where your hook is at all times. e. Gently flick your arm forward, keeping the hooks off the ground as well. Your wrist should flick forward in sync with your arm. Release the line to the right as your arm is no longer advancing. Time your cast so the hook flies in the direction you want. This takes some practice so keep trying until you get it. f. When the line is as far away as you are, twist the bracket back down to lock the line. Reel in line and try again. When you're done practicing or fishing, hook the line in one of the loops on your pole and reel in the line of thawing. Step 10: Safety Precautions 1. Fish hooks are sharp; Handle with care. Note: baits and baits often have fish hooks in them; these should be treated with caution. 2. Be aware that you will be swinging a sharp object on the end of a long, barely visible string. Be careful not to allow yourself or others (babies, pets, innocent passers-by, etc.) to get entangled by thefishing line. 3. Yes, the fishing rod is a flexible rod. This makesit very fun to play, but it can also be a seriously painful setback; Steer clear of the people who are severely bending their poles. 4. Don't go fishing while, or if there is a chance, a thunderstorm because you will be struck by lightening.Step 11: Conclusion Congratulations! You have just lined up and cast your first fishing line. Like any activity in life, practice makes perfect so keep practicing. Keep this guide with you until you start taking it down. See you on the lake!

Step 6: Step 1: Materials Step 2: Attach the String to the Beverage Can Step 3: Create Your Roll Step 4: Put on the Board (rock) Step 5: Tying the Hooks Step 6: Now that Your Done!

OK have you ever wished you could go fishing but you don't have enough for a fishing rod? well im gonna show you how to make a fishing tackle out of a soda can. It's very cheap to do! Think about it a soda can is pretty much free and a nickel worth it! Step 1: Materials - Soda Can (i used Pepsi) - Fishing line or string (i used a 12 pound resistant string) - Fishing hook (s) (you can use 2 if you want I have a small and a large) -Scissors or cutting tool -rock with a notch would be a good one (to be used as a circuit board, or u can buy a circuit board) -Some good working hands Step 2: attach the string to the beverage can OK so what you want to do is press the tab or can opener on top of the can and put the fisherman's string through it. You want enough to get in there so that you have to tie it yourself tightly different times.Step 3: creating your roll To make your roll, wrap the string in the register around the can not too tightly and not too loosely attached . Wrap about 30-50 feet around the can depending on how far you want it to go. after you've got the string cut there and hold on to the end.Step 4: put on the board (rock) get your skirt and wrap the fishing line around the rock's nicks and bumps so the rock doesn't slip away. Put some good knots on your sinker.Step 5: tying the hooks Holding your line through the hook leaves some extra line and use your favorite knot to tie the hook. Then add the second tick at the bottom right of it.Step 6: now that your done! Here's some instructions i devised, I don't have the time to post a video but I think you guys got the idea. 1) just point the can where you want it. 2) get an arm length of the line in on your hand and twist it backwards. 3) Hold the can in the direction you want it to go. 4) let go! and the board will cause you to throw very far. 5) To reel it in just roll it up quickly like in step 3 (wearing gloves if you are going for big fish may be the line you cut.

Step 9: Step 1: Types of Baits Step 2: Improvements Step 3: Materials Step 4: Inserting Paracord Onto Hooks Step 5: Burn One End and Cut The Other Step 6: Align the Tail Step 7: Remove the Outside of the Paracord Step 8: loosen the end piece Step 9: have fun!

I love to go fishing. Maintaining a collection tackle and lures, get that feel of a fish on the line, then stagger it in and get to see what it is. But I thought of one more thing that could make fishing even more fun. Bait can be expensive and does something by itself only makes you feel even better when you see what you can get with it. That's why I decided to try homemade bait. In this project you will learn a very easy way to make a homemade bait that works like store bought ones. Once you learn how to do this, this is something that could be done in minutes while fishing, at home, on the go, or even in a survival situation. Step 1: Types of Baits There are many types of baits and even many more types from homemade ones that have worked for the people. Choosing the right type of bait where you can fish is an important thing. In this instructable it will show you my version of an instructable that I saw on the internet and used on instructables with paracord. The combination of fishing and paracord could also be applied with survival situations, which is why these life skills can come in handy.Step 2: improvements I decided to try this online version. After doing that, I realized it could use some improvement. It was way too easy and yet some kind of body was missing. This is where jigs come in. They are a sort of weighted head with color, attached to a hook that various soft baits can be tied to. There are many types of attachments for jigs. A jig in combination with the paracord bait is exactly what you needed. Now let's move on to making Step 3: Materials For this project you will need: -A pair of jig heads -Paracord -Scissors -Lighter -Exacto knife (optional) Step 4: Inserting Paracord Onto Hook Take a small length of paracord and compare it with the hook on the jig, assessing how much you could hook. Then gently press the paracord onto the hook until it's roughly in place. Then stick the hook through the paracord, and at the end press the whole thing up to the head.Step 5: burn one end and cut the other Continue to take the lighter and burn the end that should be right against your head. Then decide how long you want to extend the stern off the hook, and use the scissors to cut there.Step 6: straightening the tail Now the end of the tail is still going to be bending around with the hook, so take the exacto knife and cut Carefully make a slit in one side of the paracord so that the hook slip through the paracord and the tail is straight. Make sure you only cut the outer layer of the paracord.Step 7: remove the outside of the paracord Next, using the exacto knife, or slender object, carefully cut the inner strands through the slot in the outside of the paracord next to the gripper pull. After that, cut off the outer layer that is hanging. Now you should only have the inner strands exposed forming the tail.Step 8: loosen the tail piece Now all that's left to do is form the tail. There's really no wrong way of doing it, you just have to untangle the inner threads and thin it as possible so that it looks kind of fluffy. To untangle the strands I untwisted the top and stuck the exacto knife in the hole and pulled it untwisted on it. I even thought of using a comb to kind of untangle them and make them thinner.Step 9: have fun! Now that you have made your own homemade fishing lures and you have learned how so you can do it anywhere and catch them fish! So load the tool box and head onto the river! I've done experimenting a bit with different hooks and techniques like trying a treble hook and attaching it to a spinnerbait clip. This is a fun, efficient project that can be applied and expanded in many ways so I hope you enjoyed yourself and catch some fish! (I'll add an update with pictures and guides next time I go fishing. I expect good results!)

Step 5: Step 1: Step 1: 3D printing- Step 2: Step 2: Surface treat your parts Step 3: Step 3: Assembly and installation Step 4: Step 4: Testing and lift-off- Step 5: UPDATE

Summary: In this instructables you will learn how to build a load hook for your Blatt B450 X or 3D helicopter. Of course, interface adjustments for other helicopter classes and types are easy to achieve. Get an impression of it by watching the youtube video: Materials Required: 3D printed parts, 2ea nails diameter 2mm, servo and related link / rods etc, Cable ties and double tape, metal ring, long alley, 1 free channel on the receiver / radio Step 1: Step 1: 3D printing Print your parts with ABS in medium resolution. The baseplate was printed in 0.3mm layers, but I recommend making it thinner than the hook parts. Base plate volume: 21,986.54 cube millimeters hook part1 volume: 2,557.12 cube millimeters hook part2 volume: 3,461.60 cube millimeters The pictures do not have to show the servo arm and servo rod. Don't you have to own a 3D printer? No problem: go to, register and choose a 3D printer near you. Pay online and grab it later. Works great. Step 2: Step 2: Surface Treat Your Parts Smooth the surface of the parts with an acetone steam bath. The lesson is attached as a PDF file. After the treatment, the holes according to your nail diameter and the servo screws. Step 3: Step 3: assembly and installation Put the hook parts and glue the nail head to the base plate. Install the servo and design the servo rod accordingly. With double tape, I attached the landing gear to the base plate and secured it with zip ties. Now you have two configuration options: place the base plate so the hook is directly under the rotor shaft or rotate it 180 degrees as seen in the pictures. The base plate is attached to the helicopter frame with double tape and fastened with cable ties. The long track must be at least 1.5meters long.Step 4: Step 4: Test and take off PRE-FLIGHT CONTROL: After the installation, check the correct release function of the hook. Maybe you need to adjust the stroke of the servo. Be sure you can conveniently operate the release switch on your radio in an emergency (e.g. severe load oscillation). The switch should be near the stick, and not anywhere far from your fingers, and. Also check to see if the change has a negative impact on the existing control cable or rod. CAUTION: Be aware that an oscillating, heavy load on a short track can seriously affect the stability of your heli. Do your first flight with an empty tin or easy task. Depending on your installation configuration: Remember the CG center of gravity of the heli itself and the potential eccentric force from the load hook. Best practice: You don't float in place for too long. Take off and fly slowly but steadily forward. This can avoid oscillation of the load. How controlling a crane by moving a load takes some practice. Enjoy with Step 5: UPDATE I felt I would need a nice hook in order for me to design one. Indeed, the hook is based on the geometry and design of the Firebird ( So if you liked this heli load hook, just print the parts from the attached STL files. Don't you have to own a 3D printer? No problem: go to, register and choose a 3D printer near you. Pay online and grab it later. Works great. Note: Two parts must be glued together with acetone. The top part (gray) will be screwed together. The two cylindrical parts should be printed in the same orientation in order to best match! The curved hook part should be printed horizontally.

Step 4: Step 1: What You Need To Know: Step 2: Create the Shaft Step 3: Create the Hook Step 4: Weld the Hooks

At some point in your life, you probably wanted a grappling hook. And rightly so; they're pretty awesome. Grappling hooks have been around since Roman times, and have become a staple of popular culture, used by movie heroes, pirates, ninjas, and Batman (and who doesn't want to be like Batman?). While climbing trees and snagging hard-to-reach items like a bike stuck in a river (my friend now has a seaweed covered bike sitting in his garage) are both pretty big, the best thing about this grappling hook is that it's cheap ; it cost me about $ 5.00 Canadian to make. I tested this with 130 pounds, and the grappling hook held it up without a problem; but be careful! I cannot guarantee that these hooks will successfully carry your weight; I wouldn't recommend getting on the hook alone to carry your weight. That being said, be careful and have fun. Update:! I just tested the grappling hook at 180 pounds and it held the weight fine. Note: you are using the knot in the main picture picture to hold a lot of weight; Use a knot, like a double half-hook knot. ! Thanks to everyone who voted for me in the Metal Contest Step 1: What you need to know: - 3 feet of 5/16 "round steel bar (€ 5.00 Canadian at Home Depot) - Hacksaw - Clamps or magnets (to hold the pieces to secure while welding) - Welding mask, gloves and appropriate clothing - Welder - A mill of some sortStep 2: making the shaft View all 9 items - Cut a 9 "length of 5/16" steel rod. - Bend the bottom 4 ". The shaft in a loop I did this by making two 90 degree bends about 1.5 "apart, forming a" U "shape on one end of the shaft. I then put my vice on the" pinch "of the two straight lines Sort legs of the "U" together to make a loop (check out pic 4). Finally, I bent the shaft at about 45 degrees so that it was centered over the loop. - Weld the end of the loop to the shaft.Step 3: Create the hook - Cut a 5 "piece of 5/16" steel rod. - Use the grinder to sharpen one end of the 5 "piece at a blunt point. - Bend the piece to a 50 degree angle 1.5 "from the non-sharpened end. - Repeat this step until you have 4 hooks.Step 4: Weld the hooks Displaying all 8 items * Some pictures have references to them which can be helpful * - Place the first hook 2 on either side of the shaft near the top. Weld them in place. Then flip the grappling hook over and make matching welds on the other side. - Use a magnet or clamp the secure the 3rd hook on the shaft perpendicular to the 2 hooks you welded previously. Weld them in place on the left and right sides of the hook. - Flip the grappling hook over. Use the magnet on the 4th. And secure last hook on the shaft perpendicular to the first 2 hooks you welded in. The hook should also be welded in line with the hook you just welded in front of this (the 3rd hook). Weld them in place at de r left and right side of the hook. - Clean the grappling hooks. If you want you can spray can paint.

3 Step: Step 1: Attaching the Sugru Step 2: Extrude the Hook Step 3: Cure Time

When you are belaying for someone who is climbing, you want your full attention on what you can do. One annoyance that can be distracting is your carabiner twisting when you make the transition from the slack to the tension. This hack prevents, as well as transverse loading - which is where you force the minor axis (short edge) to distribute the carabiner, rather than the much stronger major axis (long side). While the type and strength of force applied to carabiners usually does not mean a big deal, it can be dangerous in extreme circumstances. So avoid the headache of spinning carabiners with this quick hack! Sugru is for this project because: - It's flexible when hardened - It's durable and great outdoors - It bonds very well to metal All you need for this project is: - A carabiner - A mini pack of Sugru . If you need something you can buy Sugru here. We also have a tutorial video for this instructable - watch it below! Let us begin!

Step 6: Step 1: Maim Dinosaurs Step 2: Stuff and Drill the Dinosaurs Step 3: Back Panels Step 4: A Test Fit Step 5: Painting Step 6: Assemble and Aim

So my dear beloved wanted dinosaur coat hooks, after seeing a few on Etsy, I wasn't impressed, none of them were coat hooks, they were coat hooks with dinosaurs on. I said yes. The coincidence with Jurassic World was accidental but enjoyable - because we had already made Jurassic Park jokes about the dinosaurs still littering the place. She appeared one day with a gift - toy dinosaurs. They are all hollow, on top of that when I fit as far as a test, they complained! Of course the dinosaurs have to be color, otherwise they will look like they are for the nursery ... Not that my daughter has an interest in dinosaurs through noises like one who is a little shy shown by four months old. Anyway, it's a bit to be made to materialize the dinosaurs in coat hooks. They're all hollow casts, not to mention a bit on the squidgy side. I'm going to be participating in the re-use contest, it would be nice to vote it the bill, being made out of an old drawer front and fitting some dinosaur that had been festering at a charity long enough to be real. Materials: toy dinosaur back plate - I have a drawer front screws - Different paints - gold in my case varnish - for shine and put something between the clothes and paint Tools: glue gun brush (optional, you can spray your back plate or leave it as is ) Drills and Bits (depending on your screw selection but I used 2mm, 5mm and 8mm (use a large bit first instead of a countersink after for a nice finish) plus a 6mm masonry cutter knife hammer So, on I can Don't take responsibility for your actions on following instructions, like if you're climbing into the cardboard box you're spraying or somehow screwing or gluing a dinosaur to your face, you probably haven't embarked on this project. But really, appropriate safety equipment and precautions, though need not even turn your back on a dinosaur. "They were s o Busy about whether you can make dinosaur coat hooks that you should never stop thinking. "- Christy

Step 3: Step 1: Pick Your Hook Step 2: Hold On To The Sugru Step 3: Hold It On!

In your bathroom, just changing small fixtures can really make a big difference and help freshen up the whole room. But bathroom DIY can be a little tricky. Attaching fixtures where you want them to be either permanent or just impossible (and a big no-no if you're renting your home). You can experiment with Sugru without the worry! So you can change the layout for your bathroom without the need for each drilling. So you're free to attach the things where it wouldn't be possible to drill, like putting your towel rail on the side of your sink! Whatever works for you. And if you change your mind, you can just remove it. For this project we twisted a piece of coral into a handy hook for the shower (our James found it washed up on the beach).
