C4 Tripwire Mine

Make sure to turn up the volume on the video.

Right now it just emits a noise when the two contacts are broken... but I play on hooking up a relay and have it control a sprinkler valve. It will shoot BBs. But for right now it works as a good little trap to alert me of the enemies location.

Man that clay on the bottom looks like it could have been C4 for sure... :shock:

What's the flat green pad on top there?

The trip wire will be replaced with real military grade tripwire. I just did that as a video demonstration so you guys could see it clearly.

And the C4 is actually a bunch of different colors of play dough mixed together, it was then wraped in packaging tape to give it that real c4 packaging look and to keep the play dough fresh and soft. The green panel is an old calculator circuit with a LCD attached. The red and black wire were added later through some holes on the circuit board. The black things on top are Bell and Howel alarms that were painted black.

Let me tell you something extremely important:

DO NOT LET THE POLICE SEE THIS. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO MAKE/POSSESS A FAKE/HOAX BOMB.

You might, just might get away with it if you spraypaint INERT on it in big, bold letters.


But loose the clay. You can get in DEEP crap for that.




I should know. :cry: I made a fake bomb once, for 'assault' type games (disarm the bomb before it goes off) and got slapped with a misdemeanor.

No problem man. I kind of panicked when I saw how much like a bomb that thing looked. Can't let people suffer the same mistakes I did. But yeah, be ready to explain that thing in depth if the police ever ask anything. Keep it hidden, don't show it to anybody you don't trust to keep their trap shut.

Remember to make INERT really big on that thing.

Better yet, just take the C4 looking stuff off completely...or replace it with a block of 2 x 6 wood for something substantial there. There's no reason this thing couldn't be made to look like a typical 9th grade science project.

thanks guys, I think im going to mount a receiver,relay and battery on this c4 base instead of the bell and howel alarm so i can hook it up with a remote mine. (sprinkler valve.) Does anyone know the minimum voltage to operate a sprinkler valve? 9v,12v?

Nice job David. As for the voltage, it depends on the solenoid they are different.
