Surface Trip Flare: Intruder detection light tripwire, used to activate a lightstick

The detection light tripwire is used to trip a 6” ultra high intensity orange lightstick (15cm). Developed by the U.S. Army to facilitate intruder detection, the tripwire replaces pyrotechnical accessories that are sensitive to damp and that can cause fires to break out.

This reusable intruder detection light tripwire has several attaching holes for securing it to different types of supports: trees, door or window frames…
