Eric Allard has come up with a very useful piece of equipment called the Load Lifter. It uses common DeLaMare or MP Associates squibs in a captivated unit that can propel objects repeatably without the risk factor of unenclosed pyrotechnics. An example would be the ability to launch an item off of a table at a controlled height with a person standing right next to it without the risk of flying pyro debris. It also allows for quick and easy reset, as the launched item can have doubles all ready to reset into the load lifter. These Load Lifters are available for purchase. The Kit with 2 Load Lifters, Pelican case, spare parts and tools is a thousand dollars . Single Load Lifters can be purchased for five hundred dollars.
The Kit: 2 load lifters, spare parts, tools, all in a Pelican Case.
