Homemade Booby Traps: Enter At Your Own Risk​

By SS Contributor 52 Comments

Homemade Booby Traps
A survivalist homemade booby trap is a device intended to automatically detect, scare, injure or kill.
To protect your homestead from unsuspecting threats.
For our purposes, a threat is anyone trying to enter our property or homes without your permission.
Thieves, bandits, gangs, etc.
During times of normalcy, it’s essential to keep the booby traps to the non-lethal, non-threatening sort. Simple alarm trip wires and such.
Yet, when SHTF…all bets are off…
So we will first cover 2 alert based traps.
Then several outdoor homemade booby traps and finally share a few home entrance booby traps.
Remember: In order for any of these booby traps to work, they must be discreet and out of sight of its intended victim....more at link

I just leave the hitch in my pickup receiver, they’ll never get to my front door without knocking their shin and screaming/swearing loud enough to warn me! Lol
How would you know? Asking for a friend. :laughing:

Had a lady at a stop light roll her car into my hitch as she was on her cell phone. My truck was fine. Her car? not so much.

Anybody that tries to sneak up on me is gonna trip a wire or fall into a tiger trap. When I go away for the weekend I rig a grenade up to the sliding glass doors in case somebody tries to break-in.

In France, if a burglar falls through your roof and injures himself, he can SUE YOU FOR DAMAGES... Yep!!!

So just imagine "booby traps".

When I was a kid, tall stone walls surrounding properties were topped with broken bottles. Not any more.

Even signs saying "Mean Dog" are AGAINST THE LAW.

The world is UPSIDE-DOWN...

& in France, you're even supposed to put a tennis ball over your trailer hitch ball when not in use...
