Gravity Activated Devices

There are a number of improvised explosive devices and boobytraps that rely on the force of gravity to initiate them and make them detonate.

They are often quite delicate and unpredictable, and extremely hazardous for the bomber to set up, or for a bomb technician to try to move or dismantle.

Securesearch manufactures a number of inert products that demonstrate the use of gravity in boobytraps and IEDs to initiate an explosive charge.

They are designed to be x-ray correct when for use in screener training courses --and moreso for bomb technician training on identification and render-safe procedures.
