The snake catcher is, even without any talent in crafts, very easy to copy within half an hour. Find yourself a cut-off section of pipe which is 20 mm in diameter and approx. 2 m long. These pipes are used in Thailand as water pipes. The trade stores offer these pipes in two different thicknesses. For stability reasons the pipes with thicker walls are to be preferred. In addition you will need 3 plugs and a strong piece of cord. The cord is available in garden stores. A
thick piece of cord is more rigid which makes catching a snake easier and spares the snake which is to be caught. You should now drill holes into the plugs to pull the cord through as shown in the illustrations. In order not to obstruct the tightening of the cord, the holes should not be drilled too small. The cord is thread through the inside by the pipe. One end of the catch loop is secured in the lower plug with a knot. By pulling on the catch pull, the lower catch loop tightens.
