I have not made one of these as of yet.

I have modified a few.

So that instead of using all those "D" cell batteries, mine use a single or double six volt lantern battery or gell cell.

What I did was to locate the Positive post and the negative post on the inside of the camera, soldered a wire to each and extended it thru the bottom or back of the case. To get it thru the case, I drilled a 1/4" hole and put the wires thru, then sealed with silicone.

Attach alligator clips to ends and attach to battery.

I used a red clip for positive and black for negative.

Place battery in a canvas bag, attach to tree with a strap and your good to go.

They really are simple to do. Takes about 15-30 minutes to complete.

Not sure which one you have, but, should be some small rubber "buttons" or plugs covering the screws that hold the case together.

Has to be a way to get into the case, they have to preform service on them.
