Also known as Klankers, Bangers, Knockers, Ker-Bangers and several other names, this toy was a fad from the late 1960’s into the early 1970’s. This toy consists of two acrylic plastic balls molded on a length of nylon cord with a plastic ring handle to be banged together making a “klacking” sound with more talented users being able to clack the balls both at the bottom and the top of the swing as well as being able to do two of them simultaneously. Disliked as a noise nuisance, Clackers were eventually banned due to breakage with the balls shattering with explosive force sending plastic shards out and causing injury. Being outlawed as a “Mechanical Hazard” and removed from the market, as well as being fairly difficult to master.
