A favorite of paranoid spellcasters protecting arsenals of scrolls, the self-destructing scroll rack trap seems like a standard trapped scroll rack with a poison dart trap. However, when one of the scrolls is pulled from the rack without first deactivating the secondary trap (either through Disable Device or Perception to find the hidden switch) it smashes a vial of alchemist’s fire over each scroll effectively destroying the scrolls and burning anyone near the rack.
