Step 11: Finished! - Try It Out

It is now time to test your Booby Trap.

To load your Booby Trap simply pull back the Rubber Band and hook it on the Latches hook.
Then put whatever projectile you wish in front of the Rubber Band. You'll be surprised how far it shoots the object.

Below is a video of me testing the Booby Trap to make sure everything was working correctly.

*The video has been deleted from the original service I'd uploaded it to. I will be uploading it to YouTube shortly.

I wanted to make my Booby Trap more sensitive after filming this video. So altered the angle of the latches hook.

Comments, Pictures and Ideas are all greatly appreciated.

Any updates to this How-To will appear on my website FlyingTopHat.co.uk.
<p>This is genius, I super-sized this and made it fit in my school locker, attaching the string to the door. The string goes through to the outside through the secondary lock hole, with 3 chain links tied to it. On top of it all, there is a key-lock on the chain, preventing someone from simply disarming it. on the outside you only see a chain link and key-lock, but can still open easily. so open the locker and... snap! It slings a plastic long-dart straight at them. and to dis-arm it from the outside, remove the lock.</p>

<p>not to shabby</p>
<p>i like it</p>
It didn't work for me! I think my paper clips were too weak or something?? When I hooked the rubber band in place it would just pull back the paper clips instead of stretching the elastic
<p>try using matchsticks and strengthining them with hot glue</p>

Heat a nail over a fire and then poke it at the desired spot. It works, literally, like a hot knife through butter.
Or use the heated nail as projectile<br /> <br />
Your'e joking right?
