Appliance-Concealed IEDs

Ordinary household appliances have been boobytrapped with concealed explosives since at least the 1940s, when a Canadian man mailed a boobytrapped electric kettle to his wife. A similar murder occurred in another case in 1972, also with a boobytrapped electric kettle, where a man paid somebody to kill his daughter who had married out of the family honor. Over the years, a number of bombings have occurred around the world, that were based on a variety of boobytrapped electric appliances, telephones, radios, VCRs, etc. Securesearch manufactures a number of different inert IED training aids built into common appliances. They are essential in scenarios for airport security, post office security and courier security training and testing.
