Batman famously uses a grappling hook to travel to hard to reach places, but his version looked nothing like this homemade Grappling Hook Launcher. For one, Batman's version was compact and sleek while this quirky contraption looks as though it's meant for assault missions.

The homemade Grappling Hook Launcher is made by YouTube user 'Creed4545' and he's also compiled instructions on how to replicate his genius over on the Instructables website. Some interesting materials required to fashion your very own Grappling Hook Launcher include a dry chemical fire extinguisher, a N-Strike Raider Rapid Fire CS 35 Nerf Gun, a paintball coil hose, and most important of all, black spray paint.

Implications - Consumers enjoy the act of crafting homemade items because it gives them a sense of purpose while creating a product with plentiful intrinsic and sentimental value. As such, corporations may consider selling kits of their products rather than the actual assembled good in order to satiate consumer desire to build their own wares.
