Hey,

Does anyone have a diagram they could share of the design of their drop down picture prop?

Would like to design a few of these this year as during last year MHC I saw them used at some haunts really effectively and would like to give it a try.

Size of picture that gets droped, materials used to construct, etc would be helpful.

Thanks,
Kim

Picture-drop? A pants -drop is Much More terrifying!

Hey Doc,
The loud thump is forum members passing out from me posting.

the method is really quite simple.
PM me your email addy and I will send pictures of the one I made a few years back.

I will have to make a run to Home Depot first to give you a parts list. I will do what I can to help.

Thats not mine...I just posted a link to a how-to so I cant take credit.
It was on monster list, I was looking at it for something I had in mind myself.

Thanks for the help. The parts shown seem easy enough to build but with the right placement and actors I think we can get some big scares!

I made mine move a different direction on a bearing , pivoting from the lower right hand corner of the picture. Maybe it fights gravity a little less than straight up and down. I know I'm getting tired fighting gravity so much, everyday...
