Made from iron bedposts; charge made of pieces of lead from curtain tape and match-heads, to be ignited by AA batteries and a broken light bulb.
On May 21, 1984 two inmates of a prison in Celle, Germany, took a jailer as a hostage, showed off their fire power by letting go at a pane of bullet-proof glass, and escaped by car.

Disguised as a wooden crucifix; found in an inmate’s cell in Wolfenbüttel prison, Germany, sometime around 1994; intended for use in an escape or as a general weapon. At that time a lot of crucifixes were fashioned in prison woodshops until jailers finally figured out their true purpose.

Stove / Grill / Toaster
An inmate of Ludwigsburg prison, Germany, botched together this multi-purpose tool from wire, a broken heating rod and some tin foil. It was found in his cell and confiscated sometime in the mid-eighties.

Fashioned by an inmate in the metal workshop of Wolfenbüttel prison, Germany, presumably as a means for smuggling secret messages, drugs, or gun parts. Although the prisoner claimed it to be a piece of abstract art entitled ‘Dackel’ (= dachshund), it was confiscated in 1991.

Made from a toothbrush handle, a ball pen and an electric motor; confiscated in ‘Santa Fu’ prison in Hamburg, Germany.
Tattooing instruments are a popular and common source of income among inmates but are banned as ‘illegal objects’due to the danger of infection (Aids, Hepatitis, etc.).

Radio Transmitter / Bug
Made of radio recorder parts by an inmate of Wolfenbüttel prison, Germany (battery is missing).
Prisoners occasionally manage to install gizmos like this one in guard-rooms to be prepared for upcoming cell searches.
Also suitable as a means of cell- to-cell communication among inmates. A standard radio serves as a receiver.

Sometime in the seventies an inmate of Ludwigsburg prison, Germany, built this radio on the sly and hid it inside an encyclopedia. It was probably commissioned by another inmate who had no electronic expertise himself.

i am astonished to see one of the prisoner making a radio transmitter in his cell. Being an engineering student myself it takes a lot more than just few resistors and transistor to make one especially in prison cell....
