    That's smart but what about something more of a baricade to prevent them from even making it into your driveway.. those spikes would just keep them from leaving ;)

          Dang all I have is a tree and a chainsaw, but I like the spike chain. Weekend project!

            I guess that's a handy piece of info....:)

            if you want to stop a vehicle.....just put it across the road.....If I can ever get a hold of a junk car.....I'm gonna see what it will actually do at about 25 mph...bet it'd get wrapped around all kinds of important stuff....

              Is this like a stop strip LEO's use ? Or is it designed to stick and stay in the tires?

                3/8" round cut at a 45 deg angle.....it will stay until it is ripped out....then it will leak...fairly quickly.

                made a hammer with a spike on it....1/4" didn't let air out quickly enough....the 3/8" did the trick....goodyear eagle.

                I'm hear to tell you....smacking a hammer with a spike welded to it on a fully inflated tire....is a bit unnerving....bounce factor and all...

                much cruder than police spikes....function before fashion....

                  a note....if the spacing is too wide.....twist the chain....

                    Have you tried making the caltrops from hollow steel tubing?

                      I was thinking of getting some old conveyor belt and driving large nails through it so it could be rolled up and unrolled as needed

                        Of course 3 claymores at 60 degrees to each other works also, bit of overkill but what the heck,*L*

                          Is there really such thing as overkill with things that go boom, I like to think not.

                            luckily, we have a private bridge, and I plan to fell a tree over it.

                              a steel tubing that is capable of being run over is just too darn expensive.....I've tried a couple different types....and they bend when hit about 50% of the time. The tubing that I would like to use is chromoly and can be had at the chassi shop.
