Pocket Fidget Clicker

Recycle an old VHS tape into a fidget toy!


– A VHS tape

– Superglue

– A small amount of air/oven drying clay or putty. I used polymer clay. This is optional.

– Hacksaw to cut the plastic

– Chisel or similar

– Vice to hold the tape whilst cutting

– Screwdriver

– Sandpaper to sand the plastic. I used 320 grit wet-and-dry.

– Safety specs/mask/extractor/ventilation etc – safety stuff for use when cutting the plastic

– Felt/leather or other material to cover the clicker when finished (optional). Could also paint it instead if desired.

– Pliers for bending wire/metal (optional)
