Introduction: O.B.T (Odin's Bear Trap)

Picture of O.B.T (Odin's Bear Trap)

This bear trap is pressure sensitive and doesn't require any special procedure or trigger to make it work, you just push the orange connectors down with either your fingers or your foot. One major flaw would be that if you put the wrong kind of bands on the teeth will either go underneath or won't set properly.

V1.0 Basic trap with rubber bands in the way of the foot.
V1.3 Put the rubber bands under the main grey rod to stop it from getting in the way.
V1.5 Changed the teeth so that they interlock.
V1.9 Changed the grey rods to red rods to make it more compact.

Step 1: Making the Side Rings and Frame

Does what it says in the title.

Step 2: The Centre Piece

You really don't need a description.

Step 3: Teeth and Connection

Step 4: Rubberband and Usage

This is where it becomes annoying with the flaw.
To use the trap:
1) Place on ground
2) Pull teeth apart and pull them back until they don't shut. ie. when the band is around horizontal.
3) Wait for very stupid creature to walk into it.

When the orange connectors are pushed down, the teeth spring up and shut.

TwistedParadox (author)james42009-09-11

No, I'm pretty sure it's centre.

CraigDH (author)TwistedParadox2009-09-24

yeah it is centre

TheChemiker (author)CraigDH2009-11-26

It is centre it you are English, center if you are normal.

Which language is it? English right, so we must have the right language you just have some different knock-off version

Like having the nationality of English, like from great britian, not just the language!  Duh!

or you could say you're English because you were born in England or Welsh if you're born in Wales. Think all you want but the language we speak is english, you speak AE or whatever you want to call it.

language doesn't matter!!!
this bear claw is rubbisch! (if its written correctly huh!)


 actually it depends on your country, you are probably british, in america its center. same goes for color and colour

TwistedParadox (author)2009-06-07

I don't know, it would probably work if you don't put an extra rod connecting them though.
