In the rarest of cases, a mindreading effect is created that so perfectly mimics the real thing that the trick doesn't just fool us...it appears that the demonstration is real. That's the case with "Dead Lock." A complete sellout at the 2019 Blackpool Convention, this trick has been impossible to keep in stock, until now.
The premise is as simple as it is unique: you hand someone a combination lock and explain that the combination to your lock is known only to you. The spectator is invited to put in various sequences of numbers to try to unlock it. They will fail. It is genuinely locked and no number of attempts will unlock it. The performer explains that the combination is a meaningful date of the year. The spectator is invited to think of any date – her birthday, her anniversary, a random day plucked from her imagination--and when she tries this thought-of date, the lock works.
You, the performer, never touch the lock. There is no secret magnet switch. There are no electronics. The lock is totally examinable at all times. The very, very subtle workings of the lock are automatic and built into the fabric of the routine. It's angle-proof and can be performed for someone within minutes of opening "Dead Lock."
This very special package comes with everything you need and you can choose the style you'd prefer: European or American. The American style allows someone to enter the date in the American tradition, month, day, year, while the European version allows a spectator to enter the date in the European style: day, month, year. Please order accordingly.
