A man accused of strapping a fake collar bomb to a Sydney teenager has pleaded guilty.

Paul Peters was charged with breaking into the Pulver's home in Mosman last year and putting the device around Madeleine Pulver's neck.

In Sydney's Central Local Court on Thursday he pleaded guilty to aggravated break and enter and detaining the teenager for advantage.

The bomb scare played out over a frantic 10 hours in August last year after a masked assailant ambushed Ms Pulver at her home and attached the device.
