Introduction: T.K.B.T (The Knex Bear Trap)

Check My Tornado 480 Command V2 too!

This is my latest creation and actaully a very simple one.
Basically, the claw grabs something that hits the blue rod and it just puts it's teeth into it... and hard!

Pros:
-strong
-fun to use
-can trap anything (even my walking-robot)
-a chain so the target can't move
-it keeps it's mouth closed when hit

Cons
-might bite and close when you're setting it

For short:
It's a recommandable Bear Trap.

Update on the Tornado:
It is Posted!!!

Step 1: The Ring

This part is for a sturdy bodyframe.

Step 2: The Pole Ring

This part is to lock it around something like a tree.

Step 3: The Chain

this part is to keep the Trap Ring and the Pole Ring together.

Step 4: The Emplacer

This part is to keep the trap opened until someone or something hits it.

Step 5: The Actual Trap

the Rings and the Chain are actually not required (but they make it look nicer), you only need the actual Trap and the Emplacer.

Step 6: Assembly

The pictures speak for themselves:

If you have any problems, post a comment on my orangeboard.

Step 7: The Tricky Bit

This part is kinda tricky and will require some stable fingers.
you need to disconnect the yellow rods so the trap is set.
here, 2 pics on how it should look.

pic 1 connected, pic 2 disconnected.

Step 8: It's Done!!!!

Weel you've built yourself a knex bear trap.
have freaking much fun!!!

Easy to deactivate, like all bear traps. Someone throws something on it, it snaps shut and is deactivated.

author
Skreetsha (author)K.G.T.2011-06-06

And that's a bad thing?

author
K.G.T. (author)Skreetsha2011-06-27

No, I'm just saying. Your version might actually work. When I try it it takes a kick to trap anything. I just want to catc my cat. The cat broke my K'nex Cage.

Skreetsha (author)arf2002009-07-22

No, having a lethal weapon in your home, is illegal in Holland, not sharpening K'nex. LOL.

author
DJ Radio (author)Skreetsha2009-07-22

they only kill you if it hits your neck or something.

author
Skreetsha (author)DJ Radio2009-07-23

Yeah, but that makes it lethal, right? You just have to aim a bit more precise. Lol.

author
psharpep (author)Skreetsha2009-11-26

Well if you're stupid enough to get hit with a bear trap in the neck you kinda deserve to die... helping humanity lol

author
pie25x (author)An Villain2010-06-06

Lol. And how exactly does he flop over? Wouldn't it be a coincidence that the bear trap is near?

author
An Villain (author)pie25x2010-06-07

Trips over something?

author
dnmonsen (author)An Villain2010-06-19

how about a person laying on the ground the bear trips over him the man dies and the bear falls in the trap and dies too.

author
An Villain (author)dnmonsen2010-06-19

Bears don't "trip" very well.
