      Comments about Spirit Halloween 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

          Comments about Spirit Halloween Universal Footpad Activator:

          Purchased this in the store last night. The employee said it was universal and would work with my Spirit brand animatronics. I have two Spirit brand animatronics that I purchased within the last 3-4 years. The connector is not compatible with either! I cannot return it now because they don't accept returns after October 21st. I'm VERY unhappy.

              Works great but it is way to small. We have a haunted corn maze we would like to use this in but it would just get passed over. They need to make these available in several different sizes.

              The photo and item description state that there are two connectors: a black speaker connector, and a white connector. However there is only one. I purchased the Chester the Jester which is now sold out, but requires a double input connector.

                Found it to be to short for the 6ft props I have the banshee and I need to be face to face to step on the pad to use it. They should make a longer one. And doesn't always work when steped on.

                  If you can't find the Seasonal Visions-Brand Try-Me Buttons, then Tekky's Step Pad is a great placeholder. However, not all props work with the Step Pad, for instance, Hung Up Zombie.

                        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.

                        A little high, especially if you buy in bulk of 10 or more. Found $4 cheaper. Kids tend to jump on these and this tends to get broken if done a lot.

                          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.

                            We use these in a basement that we turn into a free haunted house. We turn them upside down because if you see them you know something is going to happen. Seeing them kills the surprise, and if you don't see them you don't expect something to happen and that prevents disappointment. They're better than the sensor because flashing lights and sound can prevent the sensors from working.

                                    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 bought a pair of these from the local store that opened 2 years ago. One worked 20% of the time and the other 50% if you stepped on the sweet spot which was in a different spot daily. This past season I purchased 2 more on line real close to Halloween, figuring that I just got a bad set last year. They didn't work at all. I won't be doing that again. I found a website that sells more to commercial establishments for those Haunted sites that you pay to get scared. Bought 2 pressure pads a lot larger but very high quality and will far surpass these in value because they might actually last one full season and by the looks of the product, many more to come. Please don't waste your money on this product.

                                        If you have props that are motion activated, but your setup is dark and the property sensor doesn't pick up the motion, these are the perfect solution.

                                        The footpads work 100 percent out of the package. I will be buying at two more for the animatronics I will be buying this year.

                                            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.
