 Home made snake hook!

im proud of myself lol.
all u need is a old golf club, duct tap or elictric tap, and arubber coated rafter hook.
drivers woork better.
just saw or snap the end off at how ever long you want then put the hook in the end all the way up to the end on the threading then tape it up till its sturdy.
and thats how you do it!

cool....I bought the telescoping snakehook and ended up breaking it,so I tool the hook part and a nice fiberglassed putter and shoved the hook into the shaft of the putter and JB welded it together.. then I slapped some electrical tape around the weld and wala good as new!!!!!

I made a working snake hook with a broomstick and a paint roller, just take the wire frame for the fluffy part off and screw the broomstick into the handle of the paint roller

Why does this sound heavy? I guess because I;m short! I do like the paint hook idea, smooth and thick.
