Working LEGO mousetrap

Jason Allemann unveils a working brick-built mousetrap that actually caught two mice. A mechanism shuts the gate of the cage when the mouse steps on the pressure plate, which pulls out the axle supporting the gate. Simple and brilliant.

    The perfect thing for a mouse-free house (and some lego that smells like mouse urine).

    You can get a cat for free. :-p

    And why is there no bottom? I know mice that are smart enough to flip the thing over.

    This doesn’t really have anything to with the mousetrap but somebody should’ve posted a mech shooting a litterer with a title of
    ” recycle or die “

    I’m disappointed that there isn’t an army of Lilliputian LEGO minifigs surrounding the cage with spears (With ample use of the “screaming in fear” face). :)

    “If you follow the link you’ll get one photo of the trap with mouse inside.”

    My bad, too lazy to follow links.
