Tripwire Perimeter Alarms

Tripwire perimeter alarms made from modified M228 grenade fuse assemblies. These are armed with common 209 shotgun primers (cost around $4 for a box of 100 at most sporting good stores). When the pin is pulled, a spring loaded striker strikes the primer. The sound is comparable to a 22lr.

These are great to use as a wildlife deterrent when camping and/or around gardens, to catch or scare off dopers trespassing on your property, and/or to warn you when a platoon of communists is moving onto your position.

You’ll get the device, roughly 25 feet of brown Kevlar cord, the original grenade pull pin, 2 blued cotter pins, and 2 nails for fastening to a tree, post, etc. 209 primers NOT included.

$10 each plus $3 shipping for as many as you'd like. 10 available. I’ll be busy today, so it may take me a while to reply back. Post “I’ll take it” and follow it up with a message. Time stamp important. Will be cross posted.

I painted a few. Most came out nice, but there’s a few with small blemishes. Not that these need to look pretty. First come first serve. The rest are “in the white”, which allows you to paint them to resemble the terrain in your area (makes more sense).

I only accept Cash, USPS MO, or Google Pay at the moment. Google Pay is REALLY easy to set up and use, if you aren’t familiar with it.

I’ll try to post a video demonstrating how to use one tomorrow.











My own set. They fit perfect in the $2 tackle compartments you can get a WalMart.



Here's is a short video clip of one in action (sound quality doesn't give it any justice):

Thats a very innovative conversion and offered at a bargain price

Last m5 & m142 booby trap firing devices I saw were asking like $50.ea,,,,though I guess thats really more towards a collector standpoint.

Thanks! I like how discrete they are compared to a lot of the other trip devices I’ve seen.

I try my best to price fairly for myself and the buyer. I’ll have a few more to list here in a few days once I get some more time to complete them.

I was able to finish a few more this afternoon. Let me sort through whatís sold and whatís available, and Iíll start reaching out to everyone in order of the comments. All future devices arenít going to be painted, but again, itís best that you paint them for your specific terrain anyways.

Thank you for the update and effort on these!

Sounds totally reasonable on proceeding in comment/post order.

I've reach out to everyone who didn't specify an amount. I'm going to try catching up with all of the requests as soon as possible, but need to know how many each person is in for.

Any future claims, please specify how many you would like so that I can keep track.

As mentioned, the future devices won't come painted. I am also going to be sending 25ft of moss green braided tripwire with all future trips instead of the brown Kevlar cord. It's rated at 100lb, way more than enough tensile strength for the job (it's what I used in the imgur video in the link below). It's just easier to source, and I was having to stain the Kevlar string, which isn't practical if I'm going to be making more of these haha.


Thanks everyone!

Went to a SGS (Sporting Goods Store) yesterday and bought a tray of 209A primers, now I'm wondering if these are correct for the alarms ?

IE: how are the standard 209 primers different than the 209A primers ?
