A tremendous shout-out to HarleyHaunter for this build and his assistance! I was successfully able to replicate. Prop was a huge hit for the 2019 Haunt season in our Haunted Attraction. I've attached some of my build shots. Take-aways: Consider weight and strapping.

Wow...great job!!! I still don't understand the mechanics of this what makes the scissor contraption work LOL
Look closely at the video. There's a cable attached to the inside of each half, they pull down on the 2 rods at the base of the scissor mech when the box is opened.

Thanks MichaelMyersSickHead

J-Man is correct. See the addl. images I've attached. You will see that there are two wires (Image 1) that are attached to ea. side of the box (Image 2) that pull down the springs when the box is opened. Finding the right springs with the correct tension is a challenge and you may go through a few depending on how often you use.
