Make a better, more deadly mousetrap

Are you plagued by rodents as large as Master Splinter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Then it's time to build a bigger, better mousetrap. YouTuber Backyard Scientist has built a six-foot mousetrap capable of crushing a watermelon, coconuts and much more.

According to Avery Thompson for Popular Mechanics: "He build a giant 6-foot mousetrap with a steel bar and springs from a car suspension system. The mousetrap is so powerful it needs a winch to be set, and when triggered the bar moves at 42 miles per hour."
