Materials and Tools:

acrylic or wood dowel 3/8" and 18" long
2 vinyl or electrical caps sized to fit on dowel
hex nut
medium strength string or cording
glue gun




1. Cut hole in one cap and pull string through. Pull this string through the hex nut and make a knot. Push hex nut into cap for a snug and secure fit.

2. Glue caps to both ends of the dowel.



3. Make a hitch knot at end of string so you can attach toys. Measure string and make sure it is around 2 1/2' long for the best results with spinner toys.

Tip: Opting for a strong cording from a camping store will help the wand last longer. For use with the Ring Neck Pheasant Spinner.
