Sankey has a moving hole effect called Moving Violation, but the method is completely different than Safety Hole. Safety Hole is much cleaner and easier to do in my opinion.

I love the trailer and I love the look of the trick, will order this once it's available for me.

I got this years ago and it just came with written instructions.This gets great reactions and the angles are actually pretty good.The switch involved is actually easy and flies past people.I got Restored Credit and sold it on as Safety Hole will sill remain my Credit card trick.

I think he was referring to "Public Transit" by Sankey.

Hmmmm, I've just been having a think about this:
I have the original safety hole with the awesome 3 hole finishing stage. Its one of my favourite effects and I carry it all the time.
I dread the day my card(s) start to look worn out and knackered. The phase at the end with 3 holes appearing has always been the strongest part of the routine for me. This is where I get the gasps. If its not being sold any more then I will eventually loose this phase forever.... or will I?...

I just thought, how simple is it to just recreate the old version using the supplied components:
Imagine punching 2 more holes in the non-gimmicked card, one each side of the supplied(?) hole.
AFTER the s****c takes place the non gimmicked card would normally then be displayed both sides, then shook, to reveal 3 holes.
However the hole used to be at the end, it is now in the middle, so...
Miss out the display of both sides (the display would require awkward finger positioning compared to the original effect).
... or alternatively add an extra phase where the hole slides along the strip, from the centre to the edge?
(I actually quite like the sounds of this extra phase).
Then free to display both sides, then shake....

Any thoughts?...

I own the original Safety Hole Lite and I also bought the new 2.0 version as a backup. I ended up punching 2 holes in one of the ungimmicked cards (both holes are on the right side of the original hole).

Since I still have an extra ungimmicked card with just one hole, I can show this on both sides at the beginning. Then at the end I am able to shake the card and make 2 more holes appear. Showing the card on both sides at the start requires 2 s*****es in order to end with the 3 hole finale. Or you can not show the normal card at the beginning and just do one s****h.

It may just be me but I have the original version and just can't see how following the handling in the leaflet will fool anyone, have you made up your own handling's?

It's sitting there begging to be used and I really like the idea, but those wallet switches!

Due to possible exposure, I posted my handling for this effect in the Secret Sessions area.

No, he is actually talking about Sankey's "Moving Violation" trick. Public Transit is a quick transposition of a hole moving from one side to another where Moving Violation is when the hole moves slowly across the card to the other side.

Yes, but the method is more akin to Public Transit. It really has nothing in common with Moving Violation. Moving Violation is a great trick, too!

No, I was talking about Public Transit.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

I have this, not that crazy about it. I think there are better ways of doing the effect. I would prefer a good moving hole routine. I like Holely. I think similar concept could be applied to a credit card.
