    Nice and simple, I love it. Plus for the price you wouldn't be breaking the bank if you had 20 of these things around a camp. One of them would be bound to get set off. Also that leaves you lots of budget room for more security measures or other supplies.

    I was at the dollar general the other day and found the same alarm only it had a light which if you set a few close together you can pinpoint which one it was.

    Another cheap perimeter alarm are called pull string alarms. They're available through www.budk.com they come in boxes of 74 for $4.99 and are pretty loud approx. 85 decibels and they never run out of batteries. They may sound cheesy but they do work and they wake you right up, I had someone stealing stuff from my cooler while camping a few years back so I set a few up and caught the guy as he was running off. Turned out to be a kid from the next camp site took his pic and a pic of his drivers license with my camera phone and told him the next time I caught him I would call the cops. Never had another problem with him for the rest of the weekend.

    If you have a Dollar Tree store there, they have packs of 6 batteries for them.

    I like it. I had used the unit as designed, but this is a good idea.

    you could use black fishing line, so it would be less noticeable and blend in more.

    Nothing cheesey about it.....just mount it in a painted dixie cup angled silghtly to keep it from getting soaked......or maybe a "glad-ware" container the front pops off of when tripped.

    Also when I was across the puddle there were villages that had geese that they put out on the perimeter and I have seen what they do to someone trying to sneak in. The geese bite you and hang on and beat the hell out of you with their wings while the other ones honk to alert!
    Im not sure which part of this post was more funny, the bud cans or the honking geese, but either way, ..clever!! Good way to recycle!
