Take a garbage can, the larger and stinkier, the better. Unless you can quietly move a 30 gallon can full of water, since that is around 240 lbs. It's best to stick with one kitchen sized, say 10-16 gallons.
The can should be half full of garbage.
Fill the rest of the can with water.
Lean it against a door that opens in. The can should be leaning at about a 15 degree angle. You get some good stability by resting it between the door and the door jam. Either side of the door works.
Some people knock or ring the bell and run. Some just sneak away and wait to hear the results later, but the end result is the same. The person opens the door, the can falls in and garbage aided by water comes crashing into the dwelling.
