  • Patent number: 6837629
    Abstract: A mounting bracket includes an enclosure which is formed of a single piece of durable plastic formed with three living hinges allowing the generally flat piece of plastic to be folded into an enclosure. Fingers which extend from the lower edge of the front panel engage in openings in the lower panel to retain the bracket in an assembled position forming the desired enclosure. A trigger actuating arm is pivotally mounted to a bushing within the enclosure and permits a photograph to be taken when a critter engages a trip wire.
