Firecracker Crossbow

First of all let me wish everyone of you a happy new year!
While celebrating new year's eve I thought of this little device, that will allow you to ligth and shoot firecrackers to safe distance! Click here to see detailed pictures and a video demonstration!
I took an old wooden toy crossbow, sawed off the handle and replaced it with a BBQ lighter.

All I had to do was extend the tubes and wires coming from the BBQ lighter.
Inserting them from below in a little hole inside the crossbow enables you to light a firecracker lying on the crossbow:

 Here is a little video demonstration! Be safe! 
Use officially tested and legal firecrackers only! 
I am not responsible for any injuries!


  1. Wow, that is such an awesome idea! I can feel myself being inspired to make something even wackier...

  2. Very original and very clever. Well done!

  3. now m,ake a flintlock version that lights the fuses with some kind of flint lock system

  4. Wow! it's looking awesome . I have never seen such type of Firecracker Crossbow before well done greet job and keep it up. Thanks for sharing these pictures.

  5. Wow, I felt so excited to see this firecracker crossbow, and it will be even more fascinating to try it on my own.
