Can someone tell me where I could find a lecture or method to escape from regular Handcuffs beside Houdini's hidden key method?
Thanks for the help!

There are a many books and manuscripts out there. Many of which carry some excellent info. I would search the net for stuff by David De Val, Ian McColl (who posts here as Trunk8) and Steve Santini. Also, X-Treem (another regular poster) is just to about to put out a manuscipt of his own. I have seen a copy already and I would recommend it highly as a learning tool.

Hope this helps

I really believe an all around awesome book for escapology would be X-Treems latest manuscript. He and his manuscript have advanced me further then I ever thought I could have. Once you're in on the secrets, it's kind of like a secret club.

You can email me if you're interested in his manuscript. I don't want to post his email just in case he doesn't want it to be known. My email is scott@strictlyunderground.com

I'm hoping he will give me permission to start selling it at http://www.strictlyunderground.com

'Regular' handcuffs?!?


That's like asking what cartridges a 'regular' firearm takes.

There are many 'methods' of escaping from handcuffs besides the standard "Houdini method" you refer to. The crux of the matter is what make and model you wish to escape from.

I would recommend the 'basics' of being a handcuff king: Get as many books on handcuff construction as you can ("Handcuff Note Book," etc.) and start COLLECTING handcuffs and related devices. Working with the mechanics of the restraints will help you learn ways to open them other than using a key.

No, it's not quick and easy...but nothing worthwhile is.
