Take a Mk II pineapple and a c-ration or 10in1 can and some wire
Secure the empty can to a tree fence post, etc with some wire
Place the frag in the can so the safety spoon (lever) is inside the can
Attach wire to neck of grenade and run across trail gateway etc, and secure about ankle height
Pull Safety pin safety spoon held by can
Werner or Hiroshi walks down trail foot pulls wire, wire pulls frag out of can safety lever snaps Boom
Even better when you can run the wire closer to enemy side so when tripped it pulls the frag towards the enemy as they walk
