Pretty simple trap set up at entrances/driveways away from your actual base location, or anywhere that you think would catch someone/zombies off guard in a large explosive ranged area.

Items Required:

1 Pressure Cooker
1 Box of Nails or Screws
1 Tube/Bottle of Glue
1 Box of Matches
1 Stick
Wire (for trip wire)
Gun Powder

Tools Required:
Hammer

Pretty simple, Glue nails/screws around the entire inside of the pressure cooker, put 'X' amount of gun powder in, run the trip wire thru the vent hole in the lid to a match which is sandwiched between the striker part of the match box, run the trip wire to a stick hammered into the ground opposite of the cooker across where someone would walk. Seal the lid, and you are done, requires very little labor/tools to produce... Explosive as hell, likely as much or more so than the pig leg trap that we've seen in the videos. If I had any type of 3d software or knowledge I would draw this up.

I like this idea. But in my opinion it'll bring more zambies than you really want xD

I'll see if I can draw one up in CAD at some point today. I have family visiting this weekend so I've got a lot of cleaning and what not to do, but I'll try to squeeze it in at some point today. :)

I love this idea. Reminds me of I am legend with the safety barrels to blow if the "zombies" got too close. This would be a could fail safe and I would like to add one addition to this.

Being able to run an extra trigger to your base with X amount of wire to manual blow it as well.

With regards to the more zombies will be attracted comment, yes this will attract more zombies but this could take out an entire herd and give you an escape plan. +1

I would also like to be able to bury these and run the lines underground to my base. That way I can have a better fail safe.
