Hi, every year I do a Halloween crawl at various places after Halloween and pick up bargain props. I got some animatronics last year, but I am not sure from where. I wanted to activate them with footpads in my haunted house this year, so I bought some at spirit. Problem is, there's no place to plug the foot pad in. Has anywhere every run into this, and how did you fix it?

Here is how I do mine. If there is a try me button, I cut off the button leaving 2 wire connections. These are connected to homemade step pads using cardboard boxes with foil on each piece. The wiring is connected to the foil and you now have a homemade footpad.

No unfortunately I have not. If if they are sensor activated, you might be able to cut the sensor wires and then wire those wires to a diy footpad. J-Man here on the forum would probably be the best person to ask. Really knows his stuff.
