Useful on doors and windows. Also handy to put in a bug out bag or BOV to secure a perimeter (you can make a tripwire system by rubber banding the contact part to the alarm and attaching the tripwire to the contact part)

I have seen various models locally for much less, but you get the idea.

You can also use GE personal alarms less then 5.00 bucks at lowes. Emits a 120 decimel siren.
as a personal security alarm I do not think it would do much good, but as a door alarm or tripwire it works well.

I have these and they sit in a junk drawer. In theory they would be awesome, but they are made for windows and doors with no trim on a completely flat surface. Who has a door or window like that today? Not me.

I have trim and they work fine on mine. They don't have to be perfectly flat and touching each other.

This should turn out well.

My local dollar stores have those magnet type window alarms right now. That would work especially well to alarm a trail leading to a camp or even a door or stairway in an urban environment.

I found personal key chain alarms that activate when a pin is pulled and they function pretty well for this application as well.


20 lb Powerpro fishing line makes an ideal trip wire for these alarms. Being made from Spectra, it has no stretch, It comes in dark green or brown, It's extremely small in diameter for it's breaking strength so it is very hard to see.

I bet a few pig heads on a stick around your camp would be a good deterrent also. On second thought they might think you have fresh bacon.

Yeah, I had one of those a while back. (personal alarm) black one, kinda rectangular? That sucker was LOUD.

And I know the line of which you speak. Burned the crap out of my hand running that stuff through it.

Wow no need for the hate I'm glad they worked out for you. I said they didn't for me because of the trim... Doesn't work for everyone and I felt that was worth saying.

Apparently you didnt even read my first post because i was dispelling myths about diabetes in SHFT to save people's LIVES. Thanks for the warm welcome.

The personal alarms work awesome, in fact , your video inspired me to make my own. I use dark green spider wire. In a low light setting it almost completely disappears.

Fishing line,blast caps and large rat traps work well too. My dog usually does the trick for home & camp,but for gardens and storage the other is good,its multi-purpose.
