Can you be a little more specific? Maybe post a picture of how you are doing so far, and then we will be able to help you better. For starters, searching YouTube for videos can help you design a claw.

You can try to maybe make a bigger claw using c-channel pieces

If you are using a clawbot base and are new to VEX V5, I would suggest building this for starters as your claw. Then you can innovate and take inspiration from others.

It would be a good basic robot for beginners this year

I agree that a simple snailbot is far better than Crunch, but I was assuming that @sway199 wanted to start easy.

A snailbot is deviating from @sway199’s already made clawbot base, and if he doesn’t want to disassemble it, I would suggest something like this if Crunch is too simple or not competitive enough.

If @sway199 is up to it, I would highly suggest @Logan_Baxter’s suggestion of a simple snailbot though.
