OK let me start by saying that I am not responsible if you lose an eye or anything else for that matter. if you decide to build this. I'm not into air...
Start by disconnecting the springs from the rat traps' bail.
Cut the "loop" so that you can detatch this part of the bail.
Next using pliers straighten out the bail.
Next mark where the spring overlaps the bail.
What we are doing here is making a smaller bail out of the original bail. Bend the bail in front of where the spring overlaps the bail.
Mark the bail here. This is where you will bend it back toward the coil spring.
Mark the bail here. you are going to bend a loop here. Like the one you cut off in step two.
Cut off excess bail wire and pinch closed with pliers to form a loop
Cut off excess spring here. Leave enough to overlap the bail.
Remove lid from altoids tin.
Mark altoids tin here
Cut out this section
Lift short end of springs and slide tin underneath them.
Pre-drill and attach altoids tin with small screws. Don't drill the center mark just yet.

In this step i used two nuts a washer and a wiring terminal. This turns to arm the devastator. SEE NEXT STEPS
In this step i cut a section off of a washer.(the red thing)
Next add a nut and tighten. This piece should turn freely. It will be used to arm the device. SEE NEXT STEP
Now fold the bail back, like you're setting the rat trap,twist the wire terminal to the safe position and the RED washer will hold the bail in the rea...
For the next step i cut out a piece of plastic from a food storage container and trimmed it to fit inside the altoid tin SEE NEXT STEPS
This piece launches the projectiles when trap is triggered. I wouldn't use metal for this. It might be damgerous.
I didn't have any airsoft pellets so i used some shell corn LOL
This is the tricky part but you will get the hang of it. Hold the lid on firmly wile you twist the arming device on the back. When you hear a click th...
I drilled some holes here and inserted some brass rods so it can be set as a claymore mine by pushing the rods in the ground. When triggered lying fla...
