A small joke with some friends made me summon this poor little guy up. If you have trouble with ghosts, then why not show the ghosts who is the boss. And pin one down beneith a door.

It could probably be used for other things that need wedging, but don't count on it scaring off actual ghosts.

Please let me know in the comments how it fits under your door and/or if it actually scared a ghost away. :-)


The STL is sized for the Makerbot Replicator build platform with a little bit of space to each edge.
It starts at 0.5 cm tall a the base and is 3 cm tall at the tip of the head and based on the gap the doors I have around here.

If you resize it it might become shorter/slimmer and not quite fit beneith your door, so keep that in mind.

Print, and sand down any sharp corners so you don't hurt your feet if you bump into it.

Hi! I love this one but the corners are very sharp. Can you perhaps make a new version with softer corners or provide the plans? Thank you in advance!

I used Sketchup to create this, I've added a sketchup file with the original model that i used to export to stl. Most of the free 3d modelers i have tried are a pain to work with when it comes to rounding corners and I really suck at making organic things. I opted to make use of sand paper to round corners slightly.

I just made one scaled to 85% to fit in my Ultimaker. Soooo cute :)

I'm probably overlooking the obvious, but I don't get the hole in the middle of the body. What is that?

It's a loose reference to a popular Japanese Manga/Anime show called Bleach, and a way to save some filament.
The story goes in the anime that ghosts/souls with unfinished buisness are attached to the world via a chain to their chest. And the other end of the chain would then supposedly be attached to what is keeping them around, such as your body if you're not fully dead. Lost ghosts have managed to break their chain and can freely move about, but their chain slowly corrode and unless they can find peace they will turn into bad ghosts.

The friends I made this for are avid bleach fans so I supect they will get a kick out of it.
And I also feel that it fits a bit with tales about ghosts rattling chains about.

ah, I see the ball/chain now. what a hoot

What a lovely idea!
