From what I've been able to tell, claymore usually kill at 1-2 body lengths from where they are placed.

Any high traffic area with tight confines. Personally I love putting them in doorways, top of stairs, around corners, by boxes. Look around a lil there are lots of places. Good Luck!

Don't put them right in the door where they can easily be spotted. A bit back at an angle so they will cross it as they enter. Odd places are also good where they won't expect it.

the majority of times I'm killed by claymores are not in door ways but usually hallways, pathways I go by when no one is around and get caught by a claymore.

Place them at angles. I reverse place them on doorways and halls, run in the doorway, get in the corner between the doorway/adjacent wall, and then place the claymore so it will hit an enemy in the back.

If you've played CoD I find placing claymores like I did in CoD to be effective.

Place them where they can't be seen upon immediate inspection, on uneven, colorful, or high-traffic ground.
Donya Fortress, for example, has that tunnel leading from the central courtyard down to B. Players descending that area are always concerned on sprinting towards the flag, and will therefore take maximum damage from the claymore. The fact that this area is filled with individual blots of rubble that are shaped and shaded so closely resembling claymores helps greatly too.
I actually managed to finish the July soldier upgrade requirement for claymore kills in one match just by circling around B and replanting this area. Two claymores placed about 5m apart there will net you a kill every thirty seconds or so.

As you can see from others wise advise, the key is not to be obvious! Instead of planting a claymore on easy to see or easy to figure out spots, plant them on places that lead to the objectives or lead to high traffic areas instead of those specific areas. My two cents: Try to set them "back to back" if you play on normal mode, otherwise you may hurt badly an enemy soldier but a teammate will eventually "steal your kill". Good luck!
Do not lose your vehicles to the enemy. Be smart, be brave and die with them!

I have been having major issue with claymores.

I place them at the best angle to catch someones back when coming out of a hallway, but I always get a hit marker (it does not kill them) or they just walk on past it. Very frustrating.

Its like mine don't work or something.

Look, I've gotten the claymore medal four times. It's relatively simple: you put them in high traffic areas where people regularly run through. I tend to place them in shadows facing the way (at an angel) that the enemy is going to come. When it comes to stairs - most stair cases tend to be separated into four separate distinct pieces. I always place them on either the second of the third part of the stair cases because, at that point, players are looking more for opposition (or an ambush) than they are claymores. When it comes to ambushing players with claymores - it's more of an art: you have to learn the places where players don't have the time to "walk" or "crawl." It's just that simple: look for high traffic areas and put your claymores where they are least expected (yet placed facing the direction where enemy players will come from). I often choose to have my team members supervise these areas to shoot at players attempting to sneak though my mine fields. They often panic and run - right into my claymores. Like I said - it's all about placement and the art of concealment.

place them in dark spots in narrow doorways or just around a corner or so it will get you kill or near a spawn :P

just put them in a spot that is not affected to much by grenades. nothing is worse than loosing the claymore to a randomly throwen nade, cause it will both destroy it and make the enemy aware of where you used to place your clay. i mainly place the claymores defensively to protect my squad from being shot in the back. just place it behind some cover in a position that covers a good part of the room. then drop your ammo box on top of it in order to hide it from detection. as long as the position is vital for your squad, don't move the ammo box.
