CO2 Powered Grappler Gun. Launches a spring loaded claw 6 feet to latch on to a target. Claw is connected to grappler gun by a stainless steel chain. Takes one 16 gram threaded CO2 cartridge. (cartridges not included)
Capable of grabbing objects as heavy as a lawn chair or as light as an empty can of pop. Simply lock the claws open, insert into the grappler gun, aim, and fire. The coiled stainless steel chain un-winds as the claw is shot forward. A direct hit in the center of the claw triggers the mechanism snapping the claw shut with a solid grip. The grappler then automatically retracts on a coil spring allowing you to catch it in your hand on return. To enhance it's function neodynium magnets have been added to help the claw latch onto metal targets. The tips of the gripper are covered by high quality elastomer rubber commonly used in slingshots. Structure is made of tempered 6061 aluminum for low weight and high durability.
How it works:
In order to load the device the claws must be spread open and the center trigger locked into place at a 45 degree angle as seen in the pictures. A spreading tool is included to aid beginners in using the gadget (see video demonstration of Claw Opening and Setting below). Once you have become familiar with it's function you will be able to load the claw quicker and quicker. Aiming the claw will also take time to learn. Do not worry if you hit the claw off objects, it is designed to absorb heavy impacts and the prototype was tested under harsh and repeated conditions hundreds of times without any problems.
The grappler gun is powered by 16 gram threaded CO2 cartridges (not included). These cartridges screw into a custom made miniature CO2 regulator. The miniature regulator is connected to the grappler gun by a separate line about 30 inches long (long enough to keep the CO2 power source in your pocket). Simply screw in a disposable CO2 cartridge and you are good to go. Each cartridge allows you to fire the grappler about 6 or 7 times. CO2 cartridges can be bought online or from local bicycle stores. Look for "16 Gram Threaded CO2 Cartridges". CO2 cartridges are one time use only, once you have screwed a cartridge into the regulator DO NOT disconnect it until it has been fully depleted. Regulator is also compatible with the larger "25 gram threaded CO2 cartridges" for more power.
