Projectile Launcher

Avg. Ratings: 1.0 (1 Review)
This unique metal launcher has multiple settings, so launch speed and angles may vary.

  • Launcher shoots the ball at any angle from -15° to 90°
  • Sturdy Wooden Base
  • Length: 15¾"
  • Width: 11¾"
  • Height: 4"
A large, easy-to-read protractor allows any angle between 0 and 90° to be set securely. The sturdy wood base allows the photogate system to be attached at the launch end, regardless of the angle.

Marbles, instructions, and an activity guide are included. The launcher measures 15¾ x 11¾ x 4".

Caution: Caution:This product has small parts. It is not for children under three years. CHOKING HAZARD.

Does not last very long. I purchased 5 of them and they all stopped working within 3 semesters. They began to stick and fall apart. The quality of construction is very poor compared to the older models that were available a decade ago. Do not buy these - they are a complete waste of money. The springs become sticky, the firing pins bend and fall out, the angle setting bolt breaks and the base falls apart after only a few days of use.

I apologize that you are not satisfied with your projectile launcher. I would recommend 168016 as an alternative to suit your needs as it is metal and should last significantly longer than one built from wood and plastic pieces. Thanks for your review, your feedback is important.
