In the comics, Batman’s grappling gun is basically a pistol that fires small grappling hooks on monofilament wire. Once the hook is secured, a touch of a button activates a powerful motorized pulley system that enables the user to make a quick ascent to a rooftop. There are many variations of this gadget used by Batman and the rest of the characters in this series. However, making one of these in real-life is harder than you think.

Sure, this version may not be able to ascend buildings or be used to grab objects or people, but it’s one of the coolest homemade Batman creations we’ve seen. At the very least, this grapple can be used as a nonlethal projectile weapon. It consists of custom-fabricated aluminum chassis, an electric motor, 46 feet of paracord with a 550 pound weight capacity, a custom CO2-powered hook launcher, an analog throttle wheel, custom PCB controller and rechargeable lithium polymer batteries.
