Cube Locks

I am from 81F of VEXMEN and we have been seeing many video and teams using cube locks. For example if you look in 7k’s end of decade reveal they blurred out their cube lock. If anyone has any idea on how to build one or anything that could help that would be amazing.


I can’t give exact instructions, but I can give a basic principle.

When the sidebars are raised you want a bar, plate or other piece of metal to stick out of your tray, just above the intakes, to stop cubes from going down. When the sidebars are lowered, they’ll trigger a mechanism that brings down the stopper, allowing for normal robot function.


when the tray goes up the cube lock should popup, not an answer just an idea

Just a concept, not necessarily what everyone is using right now…
I’ll let you guys figure it out…
