      Comments about Spencer's Universal Footpad Activator:

      We have a big yard so we make a graveyard scene with inflatables around it and I have lots of props I can not keep them on Moran sensor because they go off to much and my nabours get mad so the step pads are great for me the kids just step on them when they want to see a prop activate

            I was disappointed when the store didn't sell this item but very excited when they told me I could get it online. Having it hidden under a rug for trick or treat era and my Halloween party was amazing. It added exactly what I needed to my display to make it a huge success.

              We bought the pop up zombie toilet 2 years ago. It worked but the motion sensor was not that great, so we added the step here pad this past year. It worked great and the kids loved it.

                      This makes it easier for me to make my spider jump that relying on motion. Especially for little kids that might be frightened. I can pick and choose when to have the spider jump.

                            I've used several of these for my Haunted Garage every year. They attach easy are fool proof, and can be placed where least suspected. Kids come along and stomp on it and it keeps on working. Great investment for moving Spirit props!

                                We used this in our Haunted Trail, specifically in the barn people went through to get to the trail. I used the remote and one 12 year old boy dropped to the floor screaming! Another person working in the barn came out later and said: "I know that was expensive, but whatever you paid, it was worth every cent! It scared me every time and it was priceless watching the people getting their first scare!"

                                  We needed one more step on pad. This did the trick. Stood up to a lot of foot traffic for the animation it was used for.

                                      Footpads allow you to set up a scare or surprise and "hide" when it is activated. Or you can secretly tap the footpad and the prop works. A great way to control your event or prop! They work well and are easy to attach and use.

                                        This footpad is an inexpensive accessory that can customize your animated decorations. If you're tired of all of the motion sensors being set off at the same time the footpad allows controlled activation of individual items. You can even hide it if you don't want it visible (but it's pretty sensitive).

                                            I bought a few of these for my room for my props before halloween night, and they are great. I reccomend taping to cement or carpet so it does not move out of place.

                                                Works fine with new 2012 props, but is not compatible with older props that work with try me buttons, even though it has an 1/8" jack connector. So do NOT toss your try me buttons. And Spirit, please do not stop making the try me buttons. There are still many props that only work with them. So, this new pad is not quite universal for older props.

                                                        Worked great with our animitronics in our walk through haunted house.As soon as the patrons stepped on pads prop went off.Works very well set up between static props and actors

                                                        The step pad was a necessity to make sure I don't scare the heck out of the kids next door.
