BE Pocket Hopper Speed-Feed Mod

I know this isnt the hopper forum but since it is us pumpers that use them I figured it should go here......Anyway I did this because I dont have 10 round feeds and dont want to buy some seeing as I also dont have a harness for them (or money).

I started with a regular BE pocket hopper and ripped off the lid. I took a sharp point (knife not advised) and poked a small hole where I wanted the flaps to go through. I then took a small flathead screwdriver (or staking type tool) and enlarged the whole into a rectangular shape big enough for a small ziptie to go through. I then put the ziptie through from the inside out and went in a circle to latch it so that the flaps would be arching outward. i did that as many times as needed (6 for me). Then I held the base of where the ziptie starts so that the end would be where I wanted and hot glued the base of the ziptie to the hopper. Once you do that to all the flaps, you're done.

NOTE: the flaps will be stiff so you'll have to bend them back and forth to to soften them. Must use the 4 in. x 1/8 in. (ish) for this to work properly.


And now for the finished pics....

Why don't you just cut a hole on the hopper lid for 10 round tubes, if that is what your using it for. Anyways, still a very nice job, very clean.

Not very original...


Used only w/ 10 round tubes because they are too stiff to bend under the weight of 50 balls

Lets be realistic here, i've seen "speed feed" pocket sized hoppers aside from yours and the thread starters. And pumpenstian(sp?) used speed feeds on thier hoppers [althugh actual sized]. Difference is the materials used and his "design" if you will of the fingers i found original and usual. Otherwise homebrewed speedfeed's on hoppers pretty much lost any originalty.

Good thing I didn't put my foot in my mouth with that one.
