I run a LOW BUDGET (<$1000) haunt and am putting together a haunted hospital. My sticking point is in the morgue. I am trying to design 3 or 4 motion-triggerd drawers that will rattle or bang open/closed.

Since I don't need a whole lot of travel room (a few inches to rattle or open/close) they really only need to be drawer fronts (a 12" by 18" piece of sheet metal and a handle). The rest of the wall will be fabricated (wood/painted cardboard). I've heard of some props using garage door motion sensors and a cheap electric drill with the trigger held down, but haven't been able to come up with a way to put it together without fear of failure.

I have very little experience with mechanical/electrical props, but I am willing to learn. Can someone describe in detail or post some simple instructions on how to accomplish this? Thanks!
