I was at a haunted house just the other night and they had a metal garbage can that was set to rattle by either being triggered or on a 30 sec./1 min. timer. Any ideas on the best way to make one of those? Thanks!

Well if i wanted to make one quick, lets see - cell from a motion light the kind that turns on when you walk by. 2. a drill and some of that liquid nails stuff. Strap the drill to a piece of plywood. Then cut plywood to fit in trashcan bottom. Drill a 2 x 4 block off center to fit some 3/8 all thread. Mount the wood block on a piece of all thread. Use a rubber band to hold down trigger. Have the motion sensor outside of the can to turn on/off the drill. Note-Size of the 2 x 4 will make the trashcan move more or less, also the length of all thread should not be too long or the torque will bend it. It should work fine....

Let me see if I got this right, best way I knew how was to do a little diagram to show what I think you're saying, does it look right?

I was going to use one of those old reasly big wand back massagers. It didnt move but it mage a hell of a banking noise. but it was too loud to hear my talking skeleton in my TCT so I took it out. like above said hook the power up to a light motion sensor or hand held remote, you can grab the kind that they sell for outdorr x-mas lights for like $10. I like these it keeps kids from sticking around seting it off over & over, ruinung the suprise for the next group
