I modified this a LOT and now it works brilliantly; it has loads of power and is very sturdy. Initially I changed it because I didn't understand how to load it, so I changed the way It loads. When I had done that it kept exploding under the pressure of the rubber bands, so I made It more sturdy. Thanks for the initial base trap though! =D

I respect y'all and everything, but, this is one of the most error filled knex creations I have built. I don't mean to sound rude, but it had so many problems it isn't funny. I built it identical to the way you did but when I attempted to stretch the elastics across the trap it literally just exploded, it flew apart in every direction. It could have worked if you had made the frame sturdier. When I was finally able to put the elastics onto the trap, it snapped shut even if I held it open. The elastics also snapped. The trap without elastics would collapse if I moved it. I am ranting on but everything mentioned above could possibly become fatal if not corrected.

Y'all represented with the bear trap which is flawless, 5.0/5.0. However this is too far.

My rating -------------------> 1.5/5.0

I added another trap on the others side so it kinda of workked like a bear trap but it was too much of a fail. Possibly find a way to and more strength to it because when it releises it goes pretty slow =D

lukeD (author)aleceatsfood2010-09-21

I will work on it!!!


maybe if you like it I can work on a bear trap.
If you want so just say it. XD

aleceatsfood (author)lukeD2010-09-21

Sure a bear trap would be cool ive looked them up on here but i dont have that many bendy sticks so i couldn't build it

lukeD (author)aleceatsfood2010-09-22

(with less bendy sticks)

aleceatsfood (author)lukeD2010-09-22

The trap looks rally good, but you need to fix up your grammer.

**Grammar**

Yeah, but that's spelling, no one cares about spaeleing.

Uh...grammar not grammer.

LOL, Didn't see that.

Haha. Ok.

:-)

I like the new avatar!

Thanks, I made it myself. :-)

lemonie (author)bigdylan912009-11-24

Oh yes, even better thanks for reminding me. My dad shot (and killed) a rat this week...

chopstx (author)lemonie2009-11-25

Why do you need to shoot a rat, when you could just bring my cat?

(he once caught a 17 inch rat with the tail!)

lemonie (author)chopstx2009-11-25

I guess the cats aren't that good around there...

chopstx (author)lemonie2009-11-25

Does it kill mice like real ones, or does it just catch them?  Either way, pretty cool, 4.5*
