There's a cable actuated bell for you. It's pretty interesting actually.

You'd have had me with you on most other cable op'd devices (H2O balloon launcher, silly string emitters....) but nails are like landmines, in-discriminant and potentially VERY dangerous....

Remember tire wiping? Actually, I'm too young to , but perhaps you could rig up something to raise and lower a curved piece of wire onto the tire surface to do that job.

Again. Don't do this.

Only a stupid kid would dump nails on the road to flatten vehicle tires. There really is no point in it.
