The Effect:

The magician displays a large packing box. Next the magician displays a pair of handcuffs or other wrist restraint device, and a cloth bag. The magician’s assistant enters the trunk and then is handcuffed. Next she enters the bag and one of the volunteers ties the bag closed with a piece of rope. The assistant bends down inside the box, the lid is closed, the hasps are clamped, and the trunk is locked tight with padlocks. Next the magician hops up on top of the trunk and raises a tubular curtain. On the simple count of three, the curtain is dropped and the assistant is now standing on top of the trunk! The trunk is opened and the magician is found handcuffed inside the cloth bag and trunk.

This posting is for a lightly used sub-trunk. This sub trunk has been designed with the traveling performer in mind. The whole thing strikes down in a few minutes, and can be put together with wing nuts and a flathead screwdriver. The first time you put this together it will take about 20 minutes, but once you become used to the set-up you can do it in about 10.

Once assembled, the trunk meassures about 27 inches tall, and it's about 3 feet by 3 feet in length and width. When taken apart, the 4 side panels are about 2' x 3' each, and the top and bottom are about 3' x 3'. You should be able to fit the whole thing in the back seat of a car.

Uses a "slide out" door (not a drop-down), and the opening is about 15 inches square.

The price is for the sub trunk crate and the curtain (handcuffs, escape bag, and other accesories available separately). No instructions are included with this. This product is available for pick-up only.

The price is negotiable. Feel free to email or call with questions.
