Magic download (video) by Henry Harrius ($12.00)
“The Crazyman’s Split” has been Henry Harrius’ opener for years. It’s a permanent part of his close-up act and now he’s releasing it for the world to enjoy.
You visually split one rubberband into two, melt both back into one, and then go into your normal Crazyman’s Handcuffs routine.
As you know, Henry is a worker, so he even teaches his secret to performing this eye-popping visual in a walkabout situation. The reset happens during the performance!
As a bonus, you’ll also be taught “Rubberband Explosion” where one band is transformed into a bunch of bands right before your eyes.
"This is fantastic! This would make an excellent addition to any rubber band set.”Joe Rindfleisch
"Love Henry’s work! Needless to say the effect is great, but I found the true value of this project is in the in-and-out details Henry designed to perform in professional situations. Learn the thinking behind the project will definitely inspire one to be a better artist. And of course you get to learn a killer visual routine!"
"This is a great opener for rubber band magic! So visual and love this unique presentation!"Jeki Yoo

Ask a question
John asks: Does this effect work / look as good with #19 size bands (e.g. Rindfleisch’s Rainbow Bands) or is it to be performed with the smaller bands shown in the trailer (I think #16s)? Thanks!
- 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It is possible to use #19 bands, you want the smaller bands because you'll get better stretch out of them.
Brian asks: Can you go into Crazy Sam's Handcuffs after doing it?
- 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: This is the best way to go into Crazy Sam's Handcuffs or any version of Crazy Man's Handcuffs.
Customer reviews for Crazyman's Split
This is a terrific set of rubber band effects and the moves/ presentations are explained clearly. Very easy to perform with a little practice. This video is a natural companion to "Crazy Sam's Handcuffs" and I recommend obtaining both.
Great download. Great production values and clear teaching. Plus, it looks like real magic. The spectator doesn't expect it and gets a real surprise!
Somehow, I seem to be (pun intended) tied up with rubber-band effects currently.
Love using every day, familiar objects to amaze.
Great moves to add to any tricks based on rubber-band effects.
Excellent explanation, well detailed and slick handling. great teacher , all you rubber band guys get this, well worth the price
great explanation - now practice time -
A quick and highly visual effect. Great for walk around and relatively easy to master.
Merci Henry for this beautiful tutorial and ideas with simple rubber bands. it's ever what you do but how we do it as we all know.
The method seems simple and obvious when you know it, but the effect looks like real magic. It could be done on its own but is more of a flashy introduction to other rubber band tricks that need two bands. Henry shows a simple routine starting with the split, following with CMH (not explained but a reference is given) and finishing with a well known vanish of the second band, which was published in Apocalypse and should really have been credited. But altogether it makes a nice routine and everything except for CMH is well explained.
I love it so much (Crazyman’s Split) this is what I call an insane Magic Trick it look so unbelievable real Magic that your eyes won’t believe it. AWESOME MAGIC TRICK highly recommended 100%.
I have just recently learned crazy man’s handcuffs (being quite the newcomer to magic). It’s a nice little trick but over too quickly. This is a nice way to lengthen the routine and not that difficult to do even for a beginner. It’s well taught and very clear from the video how to achieve the effect. The bonus at the end is welcome though quite difficult compared to the simple split.
what a nice opener to perform leading into the crazy man's handcuffs routine and then to add a bonus after, the instructions are very clear and explained well by henry, the extra bit afterwards works well in the routine and the explosion is truly magical, great download
This is such a good way of starting a crazy man's handcuffs routine. Very pleased with this.
An excellent creation that is practical and very visual.
