BIBLE QUIZ BOXES

(WEBSITE UPDATED JANUARY 2017)

Bible Quiz is a popular program that gets youth involved in the church and allows them to practice their Bible knowledge in a fun and competitive way.  Unfortunately the Quiz Boxes needed to compete can be expensive, preventing many churches from participating. 

 

To help overcome this obstacle, one of the resident electrical engineers at Grass Lake Assembly was able to come up with a cost effective alternative that performs as well as any of the boxes currently on the market.  These boxes work well for Pee-wee, Junior, and Teen Bible Quiz levels. 

 

All of the quiz boxes are stand alone and will work without a computer.  For additional functionality any of the USB quizboxes work with the software available on the Software Page.

 

Since these boxes are being built by churches for churches, the cost is only the sum of the parts.  Because of this, the price may vary slightly depending upon the market price for the parts.  Also, keep in mind that these boxes are being built by volunteers and delivery time may fluctuate.  We appreciate your patience and understanding.

To order a box, please contact Brian McKevett or the church office.  
See contact info at the bottom of this page.  Thank you!

Quiz Boxes are custom built when ordered.  Typical build times are 1-2 weeks from the time of the order to the shipping date.  If there are any problems with the Quiz Boxes we encourage customers to contact us right away and we can work with them to get the boxes fixed as soon as possible.  There have been several upgraded parts to improve the design and make the Quiz Boxes more robust.




 

QUIZ BOX WITH INTEGRATED JUDGE BOX PADDLES:    

Many of the old Judge Boxes are starting to show their age and the electronics are becoming unreliable.  If this is the case for your Judge Box we can take the paddles from your Judge Box and integrate them into one of our Quiz Boxes.  Since the paddles are the most expensive part of the Quiz Box re-using your used, but still working, paddles is a great way to save on the cost of getting a reliable Quiz Box.  The paddles from the Judge Box disconnect easily with a plug and will need to be mailed in before we can begin building the new box.  The wires will need to be cut for this conversion, which will make it difficult to   re-attach the paddles to the original Judge Box.

Pricing (Quiz Box with Judge Paddles):
$35* plus shipping





NON-WORKING PADDLES:    

In some cases a paddle may stop working for a quiz box.  If the paddle is tested on several ports of the quiz box and the problem follows the paddle then the paddle will need to be repaired or replaced.  The problem with the paddle is the cord.  Replacing the cord is simple if you have a soldering iron.  Purchasing a soldering iron from Radio Shack will run about $10 if you need to purchase one.  Most of the time the break in the cord will be close to the paddle. You can cut down the cord by 1 ft and re-use the cord.  Other cords have a break further down the cord and need to be replaced.  If you need cords or do not feel comfortable following the procedure below please contact us and we will be happy to help you out.


 Pricing (Paddles and Cords):

 $12* per replacement paddle plus shipping

 $2.25* per replacement cord plus shipping   


PADDLE CORD REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE:

1.)   Remove the two back screws and the two side screws from the paddle.  Be sure not to lose the washers on the side screws.

2.)   Remove the cover, spring, and plastic plate covering the wires.

3.)   Start with the bare wire at the top of the paddle, heat the solder with the iron until it has loosened enough to remove the wire.  Take care to not melt the plastic that holds the metal tab.

4.)   Remove the second wire by heating the solder.  Be careful that this wire may be wrapped around the metal tab making it difficult to pull free.  Attempt to bend the wire strait before pulling it out.

5.)   Attach the wires in the reverse order of how they were taken off.  The wires do not need to go through the metal tabs, only attached well with the solder.  Adding a small amount of new solder will help.

6.)   Verify the clear tube is in place before clamping the wire down.

7.)   Attach the back screws to the paddle to keep the wire in place.  Give the external end of the wire a gentle tug to verify that there is no tension pulling on the metal tabs of the switch.

8.)   Place the plastic plate and spring onto the paddle.

9.)   Attach the top plate of the paddle using the screws, and making sure that the spring is placed around the “teeth” of the lid.
