Homemade Booby Trap With Bamboo Spikes

A survivalist homemade booby trap is a device intended to automatically detect, scare, injure or kill.  To protect your homestead from unsuspecting threats.
For our purposes, a threat is anyone trying to enter our property or homes without your permission. Thieves, bandits, gangs, etc.
During times of normalcy, it’s essential to keep the booby traps to the non-lethal, non-threatening sort. Simple alarm trip wires and such.
Yet, when SHTF…all bets are off…
So we will first cover 2 alert based traps.  Then several outdoor homemade booby traps and finally share a few home entrance booby traps.
Remember: In order for any of these booby traps to work, they must be discreet and out of site of its intended victim.

Alarm Trip Wires and Booby Traps

Your current focus should be on traps that alert you to intruders. Traps that allow you to either hide, fight or get away.

The Horn Trip Wire Booby Trap

First up is a foghorn alarm trip wire.  This is a perfect setup to detect if anyone is attempting to sneak onto your property.

The Explosive Trip Wire Booby Trap

Next up is another alarm based booby trap but uses explosives to create both noise and a flash.
Both of these are excellent devices to alert you to a potential threat.
Half the battle to defending your home is to be aware of when a threat is present.
One of the biggest challenges to SHTF home defense is getting sound sleep. This is no easy task with the constant threat of ambush.
Placing these tripwires around your property will allow you some much-needed sleep. Because you can count on them to wake you at the first indication of a trespasser.
Now that you’ve got your alarm booby traps set…it’s time to plan some more traps.
Note: Setting up any of the following traps in and around your home is highly illegal.  These examples are for illustrative purposes ONLY to prepare you for SHTF.

Property Booby Traps

The Swinging Log Trap

This booby trap is ideal if you have some property with trees to work with.  You should channel all threats into a single location (using tall fences, bushes, etc) then add this trap at that location.

The Spring Spear Trap

This booby trap one can be hidden in a lot of locations on your property. It can be made much larger if so desired. Obviously, a larger device would create more damage and harm.

The Rock Swing with Spikes Booby Trap

This device is simple to make and can be effective.
Hang this booby trap high up with a trip wire trigger. This device will fall with speed and injury anybody in its path.
Even if it doesn’t hit its intended target, it would be an excellent deterrent. Why? Because when someone sees this booby trap swing past them they will think twice about continuing.

The Log Swing With Spikes Trap

Similar to the previous one but even more lethal. The wider the log, the less chance of missing the intended target.

The Spike Pit Booby Traps

Hidden pits can be dug in strategic locations on your property. These can be either big or small.
Smaller pits would injure feet when stepped in while larger ones could be deadly.

Home Defense Booby Traps

If it’s truly SHTF and an intruder continues past the alarm trips wires. If he makes it past your property based booby traps. Then you might want to have a few traps set up on all your home entrances.

The Simple But Effect Nail Spikes

These simple to make burglar traps can be used at just about every entrance location. These work best if they are hidden and can be set up on front porches or outside beneath lower level windows.

The Unsuspecting Upside Down Rake Easy Booby Trap

Everyone’s heard of this “gag” and it might seem a bit silly. Yet, if you’ve ever actually stepped on an upside-down rake then you know how much damage it can do.
Place a few of these easy booby traps in likely travel locations and you might just knock someone out cold.

Front (or back) door home booby traps are set up to cause harm to one trying to enter without permission. These traps can be designed to have something fall on their heads or a triggering a device upon opening the door.

Electrocution Window Sills and Door Knobs

Using some large batteries and some wire you can electrically charge anything metal.
If you set this booby trap up correctly, then anyone who grabs the door knob or metal window sill will get a nice shock.
The more electrical juice, the bigger the shock.
Here’s a video of this concept done as a prank, but its application for home defense purposes is legit.

Main Entrance Homemade Booby Traps

The Chemical Bucket Drop

This one is and easy booby trap but effective.
Use a bucket (or old paint can) and add some nasty chemicals to it. Then locate this can above the door with a wire tied to the can. When the door opens, the can tips and the chemicals fall onto the intruder.

The Shot Gun Booby Trap

The trigger of a shotgun is rigged to the action of a door opening.
The shotgun must be mounted securely for this to work. This is an extremely illegal and deadly booby trap. It’s not something you should set up under normal circumstances.
