A challenge by the Postal Service lead Houdini into escaping from a sealed and locked canvas mailbag. The trick truly was a miracle. Now YOU can perform the same effect!
A full size Stage illusion that you can carry in your suitcase. You are locked in the mailbag by your assistant or someone from the audience, using a solid metal rod and padlocks. A sheet or curtain is held up in front of the locked bag and you escape in a FLASH!
The Bag, the rod, and the padlocks can be examined before and after the performance.
This escape makes for a perfect publicity stunt or feature in an evening-long show. Without specialized knowledge of escape magic or locks, you, too can free yourself from this heavy canvas bag with a minimum of practice.
The diabolical secret of this escape is built right into the apparatus. Your spectators will look right at the gimmick and never discover the secret.
No special escape skill is required - the secret is in the special props we supply. But practice is required to get the speed that enables you to make the escape in a quick and clean manner. Comes complete and ready to work. We supply the custom made Canvas Mail Bag (7 feet high and 3 feet wide)(213.4 cm high and 91.4 cm wide), the special metal rod, padlocks, and full instructions. The effect can be performed on its own or combined with other escape effects (see BELOW).
