Description

This is a small latch that triggers a photo interrupter when a card is dropped through the slot of a wishing well. It’s meant to be installed on the underside of a slot. When something goes by, it pushed the arm into the beam of a small photo interrupter. More details about the Electronic Wishing Well this was made for: billporter.info/?p=1510
