Works great so far!

Comments about Spirit Halloween Universal Footpad Activator:
We bought this step pad to go with the animatronic Rocking Horse Dolly which is what my 3 year old wanted for Christmas. I wanted to get a step pad so it would only activate when he/we want it to and not just have the motion sensor going off constantly or have it on constant play mode. Plus one of the things he always talks about when talking about the animatronics is that they have steppers on them (step pads) and so if she didn't come with one he would be disappointed. Easy to plug in and use works great!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

LOVE THESE PRODUCTS
from Hamilton IN
I love these I bought a animatronic this year for my dad that was huge from spirit of Halloween and was worried the step pad would be to short but it recommended to get one so I did and it worked amazing thank you guys and keep coming out with amazing Halloween decorations!
The pads are ok. They work but could be better.
from Great Beck, NY
These work well and look good but they're not exactly durable. I kept them in plastic bags to keep the rain away from them and after a few hours use some of them stopped working.

I would buy this product again!
from Visalia, CA
This is the second pad we've purchased from Spirit Halloween; the product does exactly as its meant too, great contact pad for animatronics. We own the Jack and Sally duo, we are huge Nightmare Before Christmas fans, these pads bring our friends to life. We couldn't be happier with this product, easy to use, and clean.
Great product !!! Cant wait to utilize it next Halloween !
from Frankfort, illinois
Every year we review and try to improve our Halloween setup. We added several sound activated animated Halloween figures that were really scary. However the sensitivity of the sound switches were not very sensitive and often the figures did not activate all the time. SOLUTION went online to the Spirit Halloween store and ordered several step pad and try me button remote activators. Wow was excited when the package promptly arrived. We set up and tried out the new switches... Just what the doctor ordered. They worked great. Now are display next year will be greatly improved.. They also have enough connection wiring for a convienent installation. Spirit Halloween has an awesome selection of everthing. Next time i will shop before Halloween
No haunted house should go without them.
from Sacramento, CA
I have a ten step pad haunted house every year along with three more around the inside of the house. I love the quality and design of these step pads. Makes a great touch when you are going for a professional look. Keep up the great work.
from Manhattan Il
Was a waste of money. I bought it for the animated Jack Skellington. Plugged in to him he just keeps talking. The purpose of the mat was for him to talk when the mat is used. Unplugged the mat and haven't used again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This footpad is the way to go!
By Big Dog
from Eagle Mountain, UT
Perfect under the doormat to activate all of your animatronic decorations. It helped me create the elements of surprise I was looking for...kids were running scared down the street and I scored loads of more candy than I would have actually trick or treating. Great for laughs too!
New design is awesome
By Anonymous Haunter
The new design is cool! Step pads are great for all Spirit props
Cord too short
About Me Adventurous
Cord needs to stretch 20 feet to work well. People will have already walked by animatronic once it is foot pad activated with just a 6 foot cord.
chord too short!
About Me creative
For Halloween animatronics, works fine only not useable for me due to chord length
Works Once And That's It!
By Mike T
from New Mexico
Simply does not work. I tried 3 separate pads and all have the same result. You have to step on it several times just to get it to work once. The older design worked much better.
Works great! For one season....
from Coram NY
Works well for one halloween, but once it's stored for next year - they normally stop working.

wish it had both style plugs

Have yet to use it, but cannot wait TO USE IT come Halloween night. Until I am able to use it, thought it would be fair to give it a 3 star rating. When I do use it, Im more than 100% sure my rating should change by then. Thanks for delivering this product to me :)

NEW GRAPHIC DESIGN !!!
from Douglaston NY
I can't wait for the Halloween season to start up again in just a few months and just by this New Design for the step pad activator, I'm thinking new Horrifying changes are coming our way for the 2018 season. Good Job Spirit
I will continue to get this for all my animatronics
It great for Halloween stuff that I put up and scary the kids wish the cord was a little longer though
I would purchase this aging
Works very good
I would buy t his product again, for sure.
We were really happy with this product. It reacted quickly when someone stepped on it. It was almost TOO sensitive. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. We definitely think it could be a bit more reflective so that it shows up better at night.
Tore up and quit working in one day

I would buy this again.
I have bought 2 of these so far and both have worked perfectly.
Kids loved it!!!
I used the Footpad for the Root Tree I also purchased. It was a big hit with the kids! They loved the fact that all they had todo was step on it to make the tree go off, and they did, all night long!!!! lol
I would most certainly buy this product again
Worked great allowed all the kids walking up to my front door to activate the animatronics
I would highly recommend its usage
I wish all animatronics used these things it makes prepping a fright walk so much easier
Descent product. A little flimsy. Will see how they hold up
Amazing product! You just through it on the floor, step on it and something happens! Amazing! Seriously though, more reliable than putting your animatronics on IR or sound sensors.
