thanks charlie, this is the only useful post i have found online really with this topic... i am very thankful to get good info on this simple yet unknown apparatus :)so am i correct in assuming this is a one piece cable ? and as you suggest pre tensioning the spring is a handful but not entirely impossiblei'll have to go out and purchase the 'toyota special tool' (bag ties) thats a great tip... thankspj

there must be some sad creature out there that looks on cockies as a feast... make friends with them :p

that's not a silly idea... :) however i love the idea of a device like the one the OP constructed, so simple but 'prof brainstorm'ish'... lol
Btw i wasn't thinking of a 'humane' release for cockroaches...
here in australia we have a big problem with cockroaches... i'm sure there's a simple solution lurking in here somewhere to catch the dirty little b***ards using a drinks bottle or similar ? obviously gravity won't be the key, maybe friction (or lack of)... ?
