DIY telescopic expandable baton

These things are cool, but are banned/expensive in some areas.

I would like to make one, some day.

Here are some ideas to make a expandable baton from everyday things.

1. Use the leg from a tripod.  Perhaps not the strongest way, epically if it is aluminium.  But you will get a good idea of how to make them.

2. Use a gas strut from a car hatchback or similar.  These are usually worn out and have no gas when they are old.  A sharp flick of the strut will produce the inner part and ready for whacking.  Be careful drilling into these.

Any other ideas are welcome, no one else has produced a 'how to' in the making of a a real expandable baton.
