CAR TEETER RIGS

The vehicle teetering rig enables a vehicle to be positioned on its balance point over an edge, with a teetering movement added, thus giving the effect of the vehicle possibly falling, the rig enables this to be achieved safely, whilst keeping the movement and position of the vehicle secure,

During the preparation of the rig, the vehicle has a steel hinge-point physically attached to its underside, this locates either to a fixed steel ground anchor plane (with safety ballast weights attached from a distance, giving a redundant safety if cast and or crew are to be within the vehicle) or to a large telescopic fork lift enabling the vehicle to slide towards the edge whilst remaining under complete control of the stunt coordinator and Bickers stunt engineers.

This rig has been used on a number of productions including Emmerdale, and BBC’s Casualty with the coach over cliff and the balancing limo on the bridge.
