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
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
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.

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 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.
I would lile bigger step pad
I used it with the jumping spider and it worked good.I just wish the step pad was bigger its to small.
Works great with my jumping spider

Hit or miss
Was looking forward to this for Halloween but unfortunately in only work half the time. I had bought 2 of these and both only worked half the time. It ripped one of the pads open and ended up making my open button which works better.
Activator Acts as Advertised.
Purchased and used four pad activators for front lawn animated creatures. All worked without any problems. Would order again.

About Me High-end Shopper
Ordered six of these to use with our animatronics and only one worked the night of Halloween, the other five worked one time and then would not work again. Have used these in the past and they worked fine but not this year. Everything else we have ordered from Spirit Of Halloween has been top notch and use it year after year now with some items as long as 8 years now.

I would purchase again
As Advertised ! Works great !
Liking it so far
So far, so good. We tested it today and it works great. It will get the acid test on our front porch on Halloween. We anticipate a ton of fun.
Good Product short cord
This works really well, but the cord is about 2 ft too short. I ended up having to purchase an extension in order to use it for my décor. The Halloween Prop I purchased was very tall and the plug-in for the activator is near the top of the Prop., so it ends up that the foot pad is right in front of the Prop., which wouldn't work at all. I added a 4 ft extension in my case and it worked great.
Guest Services Response:We appreciate your feedback. We will forward this feedback to the merchandising team. Thank you for shopping with us.
priced right but smaller than anticipated
I haven't actually used this yet but the size is smaller than I expected, so for someone to step on it and trigger my animatronics it will have to be strategically placed. Wish it had a bigger "footprint".
