Description: The Bob Popper Ghoul is a box about 8 inches wide, 20 inches long, and 8 inches deep. This box contains a hinged, camouflaged lid, is buried in the ground, and, under proper lighting, becomes invisible. When a TOT walks by, the Bob Popper Ghoul can be triggered, causing a head/mask/creature to suddenly pop up out of the ground. The grave popper, a.k.a. Bob Popper Ghoul, was developed in the summer of 1997.
Air flows in through tubing and comes to a T-Section. On one end of this T-section is a needle (bleeder) valve. From the other part of the T, the air goes into a fitting which is threaded into the exhaust port of a heavy duty screen door closer.
It requires about 60psi to work properly, but this makes it violent. Start off at 15 psi and work up from there until you find the lowest pressure that gives you desired results. Be aware….
In this version, a manual valve triggers the Popper Ghoul. However, it is possible to use a hot/cold washing machine solenoid both to trigger the prop and to replace the bleeder valve, although I did notdo this because of cost. It is HIGHLY recommended to use a soleniod becasue, with the solenoid, the activation time of the prop will go way down. Otherwise, there will be a two or three second delay and a loud HISSING sound before the ghoul flies up out of the box……(More)
Crows. Those big, glossy black birds of the genus Corvus, and especially C. brachyrhynchos of North America are real trouble. They’re known to be thieves, and if your graveyard corpses complain about the constant pecking, then you need a real scarecrow to keep them in line.
Now, I’m not suggesting some happy little scarecrow with red cheeks and a fruity grin. What you need is a scarecrow that, when asked, “how about a little fire?” would shove that burning broom right down the wicked witch’s throat and laugh. I mean, crows are some mean, evil creatures. Just one was enough to take out that poor old lady in “Omen II”, for crying out loud. A flock of them aren’t called a “murder” for nothing….. (More)
