Is it OKAY to booby trap your house?
Yeah I know it's illegal. That's not what this is about... do you think that one should have the right to put traps in your house that can injure or capture an intruder?

My house has been broken into several times, the police have not done anything... I want to take some measures

More than likely you, your pet, or someone you love- will become the victim of your booby trap. That being said I suppose if it's your house and the trap is not lethal you should be able to if you want. However, it would only be fair that you would be criminally liable, if you harm an innocent person- meter reader, gas man, relative, neighbor, EMT, ext ...

Just as long as you have a "Beware of _____" sign, ya know like a "Beware of dog" sign, only you'll have to alter it a bit, something like beware of poisonous arrows, or giant rolling boulders, and of course theres the classic pitfall with spikes, but yeah as long as you have somethin along those lines you should be good to go.

Re: Is it OKAY to booby trap your house?
Yup go for it.. just don't forget what you did lol! Actually, many years ago some punks kept breaking into my brothers truck to steal stereo equiptment.. the cops of course couldn't really do anything so my brother took it upon himself to "booby trap" his stereo stuff. These punks would cut the main power to his alarm system so instead he crazy glued razor blades to the underside of his amp, speaker box and stereo. The asses tried it again and were in for a bit of a rude awakening but they never did come back.. the clean up wasn't pretty but I thought it was a pretty ingenious plan for a 16 year old kid LOL..

Don't think "kill" - think "disorient" ! Example - several strobe lights on a motion sensor througout you house, add to this some loud music (Ozzy perhaps).

What the Law Says About Booby Traps


Most traditional booby traps like those in the list above are nothing but huge legal backfires if they actually work against anyone. You, on the other hand, think you’re being clever, outsmarting the system in every way: you strategically lay out your fishing line trip wire attached to some homemade grenade you’ve concocted and set the device to trip when an intruder comes through your front door. …

Here’s the legal low-down on that bit of gadgetry you’ve got rigged: It doesn’t matter how hardened, how notorious or how outfitted with weaponry your victim is-he can be a prison escapee for that matter. If your homebrew booby trap hurts him, maims him or kills him, or anyone else, you’re going to jail. Why? The law in America plainly states that any device rigged as a trap and “intended to harm” is against the law. Period.

There are better ways to protect your home and property without going to jail and still get the endorphin rush of cobbling together your own devices and gadgets.

Booby Traps Trap Boob
2002 Darwin Award Nominee
Confirmed True by Darwin
(November 2002, Belgium) A retired engineer booby-trapped his home with the intention of killing his estranged family, but died himself after inadvertently triggering one of his own devices.

At first, police assumed that the 79-year-old had committed suicide, as he was found alone with a bullet wound in his neck. Then a detective missed a bullet by inches when he opened a booby-trapped wooden chest. Police beat a hasty retreat from the property and called in military experts.

They deciphered an enigmatic series of scribbled clues to locate 19 death traps in walls, ceilings, and household objects. A pile of booby-trapped dinner plates was revealed by the clue, "Cheaper by the Dozen," a reference to a film in which a child throws a plate at someone's head. Police speculate that the the notes were intended to assist his failing memory.

Other traps included numerous concealed shotguns triggered by threads, and an exploding crate of beer set to detonate once a certain number of bottles were rmoved. It took three weeks to crack 19 of the 20 clues, and experts were forced to admit defeat on the final note: "The 12 Apostles are ready to work on the pebbles." Said one, "We have never come across anything like it before. It was all fiendishly clever."

True to form, the "fiendishly clever" but careless Darwin Award winner was described by neighbors as a taciturn but harmless man who enjoyed puttering in his garage. But relatives say he never forgave his wife for divorcing him twenty years before. Police believe he bagan installing the traps for four years, after losing a lengthy battle to keep his home.
