Need input on cache design

Recommended Posts

So, I've got this geocache I'm going to put up. It's a metal box with latches that screw down with a screwdriver. I have considered modifying the cache to be a latch that doesn't require a special tool. My main concern is 1. people won't have the screw driver and 2. people won't put it back correctly. Should I just put the latch on and make it dummy proof?

It would depend on your goal for the cache. If you want lots of people to log it, going the dummy proof way might have merit, but personally, I like a challenge even if it turns out to prove I'm not as smart as I hoped.

Also, wouldn't the regular non-screwdriver latch make the cache accessible to muggles?


I would place a combo lock on the latch with directions in the listing. Maybe as a multi or just put the combo in the listing

Just make it very clear in the listing that a screwdriver is required. It all adds to the fun and attraction of the cache.

Another option is to hide a screwdriver nearby, perhaps as part of a multi, were the screwdriver is at the first waypoint and is stamped with the final co-ords. Just expect to have to replace the screwdriver as it may not always be returned.
