Answered: rule clarifaction: would it be legal to have rubber bands break away on purpose?

I am coming up with a way to fold our robots fork and thought, could I use rubber bands that would break away? what I mean is, my using a motor and gears to lift up the main part of the fork, could I attach the sides to stand offs with rubber bands. than, when the main part of the fork goes down, the bands would snap and the sides unfold.

if not, is there a way to make a hinge in vex? last year was my first year so I don’t have any experience with folding, so I don’t know if there is a way to have a hinge system?

asking this board due to it probably being more help

Yes, this is legal, provided that the rubber bands stay attached to the Robot.
