Monster In A Box

Monster In A Box
When looking for ideas for our 2005 haunt I came across a number of versions of a Monster In A Box (MIB) prop and I decided that I needed to build one of my own. I’m very happy with the way it turned out and thought I would show it off, and maybe help others build there own, with this guide to our build process.

About the only thing that sets ours apart from the majority of other motorized MIBs out there is that instead of using a rod from the cam follower to the lid we mounted the follower directly to the lid. Also our MIB is microprocessor controlled by a Prop-1 Control Board from EFX-TEK.

For tools you will need a jig saw (or band saw), circular saw, drill, screw drivers and wrenches, etc.

No complete parts list for our MIB exists but reading through this guide should give you a good idea of the components we used. In very general terms you will need wood, a Prop-1 control board, a Cowlacious audio board, relays, a power supply, amplified speakers, a windshield wiper motor, light sockets, power receptacle, wire, nuts, bolts, washers, wood screws and other hardware.
