What Needs to Happen

My trap starts out with a sign pointing right. Leprechauns aren't good at following directions, so he should go left. After he goes left he will see a green pot with gold in it. Once he goes and tries to pick up the gold the box will fall. Finally the leprechaun will be stuck.

Simple Machine

My simple machine is a wheel and axle. It works when the leprechaun grads the pot of gold. It will let the box drop.
