Stage Drop Boxes

Jamie Everington

Recommended Posts

Make a simple wooden box with a hinged lid. Where you would normally put the catch add a pin hinge. Turn the box upside down, pull out the pin and the lid drops!

Several ways to fix to a bar - you could bolt a couple of hookclamps to the botom of the box. or just drill some holes and thread safety bonds through them.

Attach a length of cord to the pin, run it off to the end of the bar through a pulley, pull the cord and the pin comes out and lid opens.

Best way to make sure the pin doesn't get stuck is to use a Triple E pin hinge and a standard loop hinge pin. The Triple E holes for the pin are just slightly larger than the old style so using a thinner pin means your "drop" shoud always happen
