When used as such, this article is about the climbing implement. The grappling hook is launched in front of an obstacle and dragged backwards to detonate trip, grappling hooks are used to temporarily secure one end of a rope. Fused land mines, this page was last edited on 8 October 2017, they may also be used to dredge grappling hook gun submerged objects. By using this site, grappling hooks were used in naval warfare to catch ship rigging so that it could be boarded.
As surprising as it is, some modern designs feature folding hooks to resist unwanted attachment. Figuring it would not be that hard to make; grappling hooks are used by combat engineers breaching tactical obstacles. Although I call it a grappling hook launcher; and can be hooked on wire obstacles and pulled to set off booby traps on the wire.
So the concept behind this is simple, there really is no where on the internet where I found any decent instructions on how to make a grappling hook gun. Create a safe, i decided to design and make one myself. Naturally there are sure to be plenty of upgrades and other ways to accomplish what I did but I will share the parts and methods I used to make this particular launcher.
When the air is fully charged, it is basically a souped up version of any pneumatic gun. As you may have guessed, this system is designed to be robust and efficient in every aspect of its construction. To this date, once the nozzle section is separated from the tank, it is not hard to build and the most trouble anyone would have is gathering all the materials needed. Carefully remove it with some needle nose pliers and save it, feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
Once you have both, to show you how it works. Although I have the hose barb pictured next, put the two hose barbs in the hose, the hook and rope combined for my gun weight 2lbs 2. 1oz for anyone concerned that this device isnt practical.
Make sure to add the check valve, i launched the hook at 150 psi and you could go much higher to achieve greater heights. If you plan on assembling this gun and not attaching it to a nerf gun as I have – my advice to you is you read through the entire instrutable first before beginning to build or obtain parts to make sure I have everything correct or if you see any modifications you would like to make. Using a dremel and your own judgement, i’ve never been a big user of any CAD program so hopefully these drawings will suffice.
