    You get the shock trap in the beginning of Act 2. During Act 2 Chapter 3, a dozen or so juvies will come over the roof of a building after you exit a cabin. Use the Shock Trap on the group of them.

    During Act 2 - Chapter 3, shortly after you get to the New Hope facility, you will exit a ruined section of building into an open outdoor area. You'll know the place because you will have to fight and kill a Warden here. At the back of the area, after killing the Warden, there will be a garage door on the left and a church-looking building with a normal door to the right. You MUST go in the right-hand door first, into the building full of pods. If you don't go here first, the juvies will not spawn later for the achievement. Go downstairs and have Jack open the safe so you can grab the 3 upgrade components.

    Now go back upstairs. When you look out the door, straight across is the building with the garage door, and about 12 to 15 juvies will come down off the roof of it when you exit the church-looking building. Run out the door and straight across and have Jack drop a shock trap right in front of the big stack of crates just to the left of the garage door and then back up.

    You should easily catch 6 juvies in the shock trap. If you don't then just reload the CURRENT checkpoint, kill the Warden, go downstairs and open the safe, then go out and try again.
